What an exciting month for the Under 1 Roof artists! Three Under 1 Roof members worked with local artists to produce a piece of artwork for auction. Arranged by our sister project Leap, their paintings raised money to feed back into the project.
IN THE MIX THIS MONTH...
In partnership with
Next up was the ACT Garden Party art competition. Judged by local artist Martin Mitchell, artists created a piece depicting their impression of the Queen who, as you may have heard, is 90 this year.
U1R member Chris won first place and Wayne won 2nd place in the People's Choice category.
Following on from these successes is the offer of an exhibition at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital beginning in August, watch this space for more details....
Wayne has been successful in selling his painting from the competition and he is now keen to follow up further offers to exhibit his art.
A massive CONGRATULATIONS to our artists and a big thank you to our Art tutor Rosa Shepherdson for all her encouragement and support.
If you'd like to be part of the next exhibition come along to U1R and check out our art groups; Wednesdays 1.30-3.30pm and Fridays 2-4pm.
In March 1549, the House of Commons passed a bill which enabled rich landowners to steal common land.
In Wymondham, Norfolk, on the 8th July 1549, a group of locals joined forces and began destroying land owners' fences. One of the targets was Robert Kett, a local landowner who instead of resisting the rebels, joined them and offered to lead them. With the rich stealing all the free land, the poor had no choice but to revolt.
Over 16,000 Norfolk people joined forces and made camp on Mousehold Heath. On the 29th July 1549 the Rebels stormed the city gates and took control of Norwich.
What happened to those men and women in those six summer weeks of 1549, from the establishment of their own system of fair representation and justice to their brutal repression by a hired army, is the subject of a production this summer.
Sue, who runs our Under One Riff music group is the musical director and some of our members will be performing the musical score to the play so come along and support us!

If you want to try your hand at writing an article for the newsletter or you have an opinion you want heard then please come and join the editorial team between 11am and 12am every thursday. We need your contributions and enthusiasm.
AND ART EXHIBITION
The play is free to all, and is being performed 10 times in parks around the city with the final performance on Mousehold Heath. Its co written by Nimmo twin Carl Minns and local thespian Simon Floyd.
The production is a light hearted look at the rebellion with contemporary overtones. A reflection on history's repetition with today's enforced austerity.
We are working in collaboration with;
Production company The Common Lot and local mental health music group Mind The Gap. For more information go to-

What do you do at Under One Roof?
What I like to do at U1R is creative based, I enjoy the art sessions also the creative writing. I am also attending the Trusted Tenants Course.
What have you gained from coming to Under One Roof?
As I suffer with depression and anxiety, the activities I attend helps with my confidence and self worth, plus, it's always good to meet new people.
Who is Under One Roof for?
From my experience I have met a wide range of people with varying backgrounds! So U1R and LEAP, are there for anyone who needs support, whether you are homeless, lonely or suffering with mental health. I guess the best way to put it is that it's for vulnerable adults. W. G
Editor's note: U1R is for anyone who has had something to do with St Martins Housing Trust and anyone who is homeless or at risk of homelessness through substance missuse, offending, mental health issues, debt etc
