Trashterpiece – Saturday

This Saturday is the only weekend opportunity to see musician/artist, Teesside voice, and so much more besides, Kingsley Chapman’s exhibition and statement Trashterpiece at the House of Blah Blah.
trashterpiece-introWith a bar and some amazing Boro memorabilia to see as well as the artwork then what better way to spend your pre-match build up to Boro v Burnley. Oh and amongst that memorabilia are the giant heads of Ravanelli and Emerson that paraded the Wembley turf in our cup finals season 1996/97. Now I know you are going to want to see them.
To my eyes this is an amazingly impressive exhibition. Paintings dripping in gold, fake velvet and oozing decadence from every pore. It is an exhibition that points fingers, foam fingers and asks questions. What does Teesside mean? What is the future of Teesside? Can we escape our past?
You can bathe in the nostalgia buzz and reminisce about your favourite former nightclubs whilst watching the ZDS Northern Final highlights; you know the one we actually won, with Bernie’s amazing pivot and goal.

trashterpiece-boro
There are Boro and Teesside items festooning a special alter. Including a pin badge of Jet the Gladiator, no less.

trashterpieceOh and there is unique merchandise to buy, including t-shirts and tee towels.
Kingsley, as singer with the Chapman Family and then Kingsley Chapman and the Murder has never been shy in coming forward and making commentary about the local area. He is such a good and opinionated writer that he has scribed for many music and arts magazine and his opinion even courted by the NME.
trashterpiece-artThinking about, that last Christmas I commissioned Kingsley – posh way of saying, asked – to write me a piece for Fly Me To The Moon fanzine reflecting on his 2016 and the bigger picture (arty joke) for Middlesbrough and Teesside. His final piece was typically forthright and hard hitting but also very funny. It has made it onto some of the merchandise at the exhibition.

I will put his words up online later this week to give you a better sense of his viewpoint. But for now I want to promote this event on Saturday. If you don’t know the House of Blah Blah it is an amazing warehouse type venue, close to Middlesbrough Railway Station and almost under the A66 fly over. It is bang next door to Teesside Archives and opposite what was the Royal Exchange site. Once the main postal sorting office and now is an arts venue and performance space. Exchange House, Middlesbrough TS1 1DB
This event is 11-3pm this Saturday, 8th April. Get down and see the art, the Rav and Emmo heads and watch the ZDS Northern Final win v Aston Villa. Then you can head down to the Riverside for the first ever Fan Zone 12-3pm outside the North Stand. You cannot fall off for things to do pre kick off on Saturday.

#ETW17: Middlesbrough sport and leisure

If you enjoy spending your leisure time indulging in sport then English Tourism Week could not be better timed. Longer days and lighter nights means far more opportunity to get out and about and sporty. Just drive along any road it seems and you will soon be made to feel guilty as you pass by jogger after jogger. So, if you cannot beat them then join them. Here is a guide to a few of the options Middlesbrough has on offer to entice you out of that car.

I think we should start by looking at things that are totally free to do. If you were thinking about a lie in on Saturday morning, then think again. The start time for parkrun nationally is 9am Saturday and in Middlesbrough you have a choice of two 5 km courses lapping Albert and Stewart Park. Parkruns are exactly what they say, not a race but a run and all ages and abilities are welcome with open arms. Simply click on the website beforehand, register and print off your barcode and then pop along to the start line. Then afterwards join the runners and volunteers for a cup of tea in the cafe. Oh and yes you can have that slice of cake, you earned it. Register with parkrun.

stewart-parkrunIf you are not visiting on a Saturday then don’t worry you can do the parkrun courses anytime, permanently marked out around Albert Park. They call them Freedom Runs when you run the routes on your own.

Middlesbrough has two very popular and well established annual community runs in the Tees Pride 10k and Ali Brownlee Riverside Run. The former 10km route describes a square around the south of Middlesbrough. It is marked out with kilometre signs so is a great way to practice throughout the year ahead of the 3rd September event. You can try and emulate last year’s winner, Middlesbrough and GB runner Matty Hynes, although you might struggle to match his time of 33 minutes and 44 seconds.

Never to be forgotten, oh so popular Boro commentator and Mr Middlesbrough Alastair Brownlee is remembered in the run that finishes with a circuit of Ali’s favourite football stadium the Riverside, on Sunday 2nd June.

We will return to running at the end of the article as we have made a brand new Love Middlesbrough route for you to try out.8km

Talking of the Riverside and the Boro, one of the biggest draws to Middlebrough is football tourism. Premier League status means football fans making pilgrimages to the Riverside from across the North Sea as well as around Britain. Middlesbrough Football Club has signed an agreement with DFDS Ferries opening up the club and the town to football followers from across northern Europe.

There are no Boro games during English Tourism Week but you can book to go on a Riverside stadium tour and learn something of the heritage of the club. You even get to experience the walk from the changing rooms and down the tunnel and out into the stadium itself.

I am staying with free now. If you have a bike then why not take it along the many miles of cyclepaths to Middlesbrough Sports Village where there is a 1 kilometre long track that you can cycle in complete safety and yes it is free. There are also cycles and equipment that can be hired for free. Book on the hour to ensure availability. Middlesbrough Cycle Circuit

cycle-trackTime to give a big mention to Middlesbrough Sports Village.

tennis-worldFrom tennis to table tennis. Founded in 1957 Ormesby Table Tennis Club were once European Champions. Now established in excellent facilities in East Middlesbrough, on Cargo Fleet Lane you could play at a club with an incredible sporting history.

You might well be wanting to get in the swim. In which case Neptune Centre on Ormesby Road or Rainbow Centre at Coulby Newham could be just the places. Aimee Willmott trained for the London Olympics and Glasgow Commonwealth Games at the Neptune Centre, the base for Aimee’s old Club Middlesbrough Amateur Swimming Club, MASC.

middlesbrough-ascAs well as swimming, there are a full variety of sporting activities, exercise programmes available at the two leisure centres. If you are visiting long enough you can join Everyone Active for a month and use all of their facilities across Middlesbrough.

Everyone Active also run Middlesbrough Municipal Golf Club on Ladgate Lane. There has been a course here for 30 years now and it is set in a beautiful scenic parkland location. The course also includes a nine hole pitch and putt course as well as a floodlit driving range.

golf-clubNow and finally for our heart-shaped Love Middlesbrough run taking in so many of the sights and sounds of Middlesbrough, something no visitor or resident could possibly not want to do. Specially designed with love from Middlesbrough to you. Enjoy the run. Enjoy your leisure time in Middlesbrough.

Tony Wedlake and The Teesside Family Foundation

I was sent a facebook poster by Tony Wedlake for a Sportman’s Dinner in aid of the The Teesside Family Foundation. Eager to find out more I contacted Tony for a chat at Costa near the Riverside.

gallon-walk-webQ: How far do you go back as a Boro fan, Tony?

TW: I started going to Boro matches when Bruce Rioch was in charge. They were fantastic times. My uncle came to pick me up and said I am going to take you to the Boro match. There was Mowbray, Pallister, Gary Hamilton, Colin Cooper, they were all kids. I remember going to the Junior Reds and Mowbray was the guest one week and he came in and there was an aura around him. He must only have been a kid himself. It was fantastic.

Q: With his dyed blonde hair..

TW: Yes and bleached jeans and his tan. Yes, I loved it.

Q: So you were there for a decade at Ayresome Park?

TW: Yes, to the very last game. We beat Luton and then there was Stephen Pears Testimonial. A great day but a sad day. Then I remember coming over to the Riverside. The first five seasons were brilliant, weren’t they?

Q: There was a relegation in there as well.

TW: Yes but I was fortunate to go to all the cup finals which I was over the moon about. Wembley three times in a year.

Q: Don’t mention the results.

TW: I couldn’t believe we lost the first cup final when Ravanelli put us 1-0 up and then Heskey equalised in the last minute, it was devastating.

Q: Then of course under Steve McClaren we finally won a trophy.

TW: Yes, I was there again, Carling Cup Final, reduced me to tears, what a Sunday. There won’t have been many Boro fans not in tears that day.

Q: Did you go to many of the European games that followed?

TW: Yes, I went to all the home games, some of the away games and the final. I don’t think we are ever going to get to another European final, so to say that I went to that is unbelievable.

Q: A great time really.

TW: Yes, fantastic times, everyone went didn’t they? Every game was packed home and away. The support was unbelievable. I believe that some of those games where we needed 2 or 3 goals that the supporters got the players through, with the momentum. If there hadn’t been many fans there I don’t think they would have got through.

But it is a new era now, different, I am glad to be back in the Premiership. My lad goes now to all the games, home and away. I think he has only missed one game all season, at Southampton. He goes with his mates on the coaches.

Q: Did your dad go to the match?

TW: Yes, my mam and dad went until about 2000 when they stopped going. But Neil Bullock, who is also part of the Foundation is a huge Boro fan and he has probably been going even longer than me. Since the early 80s with his dad. He takes his son as well.

We are two Boro fans wanting to make a difference within Middlesbrough and Teesside.

Q: We are mentioning Boro families here, tell me how the The Teesside Family Foundation came about?

TW: I used to be co-founder of a charity called Boro Real Fans Believe in Dreams. Everything we did was based on taking kids down to Boro Football Club, on tours, as mascots, for home games, even away games. We even took kids to the play off final. Then I started doing bits and pieces away from that.. I just felt as if I wanted to help more people in Teesside in different ways. So, I will still go down there with Jenny and Boro Real Fans and have some involvement.

Neal Bullock used to run a charity called Fat Lads on Bikes.

Q: Alastair Brownlee was involved wasn’t he?

TW: Yes and other ex players, Stampy, Hodgy and Maddison all did the bike ride last year, the Tour of Teesside. So Neal and me became friends a couple of years ago and he helped me when we started out. He managed to sort out paying for five mascots for us when we were trying to get off the ground. From then we became friends. We helped a lad called Finley Ingles. He has just had laser treatment in America for a brain tumour. We did a golf day called the Erimus Cup at Middlesbrough Golf Club, where Neal had a team and I had a team, Ryder Cup style. We raised £3 500 from it. That was a great day.

Then Neal had the same vision as me in what he wanted to do. The women from The Fat Lads on Bikes, wanted to go their own way after two years, with family ties etc. So it was left with Neal. Most of the money Neal raised went to Ward 14 but Neal wanted to help everybody on Teesside really, our own grass roots level from the bottom. So we decided to start the Foundation back in November at a charity ball, where we announced it.

So, the brand Teesside Foundation started January 1st but we were already active. At Christmas we helped around about 300 families and children with Christmas dinners and presents, clothes, selection boxes. We have started helping different groups. Since January we have sponsored two football teams. We are really trying to get off the floor. We had our first fundraiser and then raised £1755.

We put on the Gallon Walk. We were going to do this Grosmont to Egton but we decided to make it a Teesside Gallon Walk, to put money in local business. So, we started the route at the Blue Bell and it is a 9 mile trek around Teesside, visiting various public establishments. We called it 9 pubs, 9 hours, 9 pints. But really it is a sponsored walk, you can drink if you want to, you don’t have to. It is just more of social sponsored walk aiming to raise funds to help Teessiders.

Q: Lots of exercise for people.

TW: Yes, you can drink water; it is a 9 mile walk.

Q: Nice to get out in Teesside.

TW: Yes the Tour of Teesside is around here too, a 42 mile bike ride around Teesside. That starts at the Sports Village and going towards Great Ayton, going all around, past the Stray cafe and Marske, past the Riverside, going to Stockton.

I have also decided to set myself a personal challenge. For the past couple of years I have felt uncomfortable about my size and I wanted to lose some weight. Our Christmas Appeal this year am hoping to pay for by the money I raise by reaching my own personal goal. So on 24th January I started Tony’s Weight Loss Challenge to lose 5.5 stone by our first annual ball on November 24th at Gisborough Hall. That will be my final weigh in and all the money from there will go on to help possibly 500 Teessiders to have a better Christmas.

Q: That is a massive incentive and a bit of pressure too.

TW: Yes, well that was the idea. My incentive was for myself and my family but I needed the pressure. I never ever got going when it was myself, for whatever reason but the thought of letting other people down is what drives me.

Q: Tell us about the Sportsman’s dinner. Are you calling it that?

TW: It is a Boro Fans Dinner. It is Over 18s for men or women. The term Sportsman’s dinner is because it is sportsmen who are the guests. We have got Bernie Slaven who was there at Ayresome Park through the dark days. We call it Doom to Boom don’t we? He was there at the liquidation, people weren’t getting paid and people left. Bruce was left to work on a shoe strong with young kids training at Stewart Park and wherever they could. They were using old kits and putting jackets down for goalposts. Bad times.

We thought it fitting we did this as it is only 30 years gone for the 1986 Reunion, which we both attended and it was a fantastic night. Bernie Slaven is a legend and part of the history of Middlesbrough Football Club and has seen it all. Brucey’s Red and White Army, Mowbray, Pallister.. all of them. We wanted Bernie there straight away.

Then, there is no one more fitting than to have Craig Hignett, who scored the first goal at the Riverside. Craig was a great player himself. He saw the full Robson Revolution with Emerson, Ravanelli, Juninho and then Gazza, players we would only have dreamed about coming to Boro. And cup finals. He was there. To get Higgy there was massive.

We wanted a comedian and were thinking who we could approach. Through a friend we contacted Patrick Monahan but he was booked. My friend George is pals with Nobby Stiles son John. Nobby obviously played for the Boro and also won the World Cup in 1966. So John has grown up around players like Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton, George Best and Boro legends too. So, we thought for John to come would be brilliant. He has got the link through Nobby. I have seen him before and he has got some fantastic stories about the World Cup, about George Best, about his dad’s time with Boro, his time with England. So, we really feel it will be a massive night.

Q: So, he is a comedian and has great stories too?

TW: Yes, he starts up telling stories about the ending of his career. He was a footballer himself and played for Leeds and Doncaster and then retired through injury if I remember rightly. He talks about himself and his dad and then will introduce the top table and the players and then we will probably have food, he will follow this with his comedian act. Then it will be Bernie followed by Higgy.

It is a brilliant night; it includes a two course meal, roast beef and a dessert.

We know Teesside is not a thriving, rich area, so we tried to keep the cost relatively low. But we are a Foundation and we want to help a lot of people on Teesside. So we thought £35 was a fair price. It is a nice local venue at Marton Country Club. It is our first ever dinner so we hope it is a busy night.

Q: Where are you as far as full charitable status?

TW: It takes about 11 months. We have a charity bank account. Our website is 90% complete. Our events for the full year are booked. We have started writing a constitution that will be submitted and hopefully by the first ball on November 24th that will be the day that we can announce full charity status.

Q: We are sitting here at Costa next to the Riverside where MFC Foundation is based. You have used the word Foundation in your charity is this a deliberate statement.

TW: Yes, it is all about families and groups. We deal with anyone from children to the elderly. If we see someone we want to help we will help. We are hoping to start DIY SOS. Last year, Neal did a couple of projects. One was building a sensory room for a girl called Millie. Local businesses were involved. The project from scratch turned into a room for her to use for the rest of her life. Also, there was a family from Redcar who were ripped off by a rogue builder, they went in and built the extension. We are hoping to start that. It will definitely be in place for next January. We will be taking nominations for that later in the year.

Q: Are you finding that there a lot of people on Teesside wanting to help other people on Teesside?

TW: Yes that is right. Over the last 2 years we have helped thousands of people between us in our groups. It is mad that both Neal and me were given Teesside Hero Awards by the Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation which was unbelievable. We were taking some kids to the Boro game v Stoke, the first game of the season. The stadium manager and Dave from the Philanthropic came over and started taking pictures.

Q: So, it was a total surprise getting the award?
TW: Yes, I didn’t see it coming at all. I didn’t see how I warranted becoming a Teesside Hero but it was a great accolade and one I will cherish forever.

Neal and I are the two lads brought up on council estates, we are huge Boro fans. We are passionate about helping people across Teesside who need help. We aim in 2017 to start fast. You might think that we are in people’s faces a lot on facebook and social media but to sit back and not push it we would never get off the ground. So, those people that want to help will step forward and help. Then, over the next year from the different things we are doing people will see where money goes and who we help and what it brings to the people that we help, then other people might come forward.

It will then get busy and a lot of people will come forward that want to help.

The Ali Brownlee Riverside Run

The Ali Brownlee Riverside Run was first renamed last year in honour of the local broadcasting legend who died last February after a short battle with cancer.

The new name for the Middlesbrough 5k Road Race and 2k Fun becomes a permanent fixture when the event returns on Sunday, July 2.

Middlesbrough Council and leisure services partner Everyone Active are hoping for another record turn-out for the run which takes in some of the town’s most striking landmarks including Temenos and the Transporter Bridge, before a memorable finish beside the hallowed turf inside the Riverside Stadium.

I chatted with Race Director Jimmy Wattis at a gathering of Alastair’s family and famous Boro personalities to officially launch the 5km run.

The launch of the Everyone Active Ali Brownlee 5K Riverside Run took place at the Riversiode Stadium on Wednesday 1st March. 1-3-17  Pic Doug Moody Photography

Q: We are here at the Riverside for the launch of the Ali Brownlee Riverside Run – I believe the name is now a permanent memorial to Alastair.

JW: Yes, Ali first ran the 10k probably about 10 years ago. We both decided that his skills were probably best used doing the commentary. Then I organised the Sport Relief Mile from the Town Centre in 2008 and we wanted to develop that and we felt that we could extend it to a 5k and take it round the Riverside. So from 2009 Ali did the commentary on this event as well. And I know how much it meant to him being able to come out and meet so many people in a position where he could encourage people and see the joy on peoples faces as he shouted their race number out or if they had their name on their shirt, he would shout their name out. He was just an incredible man all round and I know that he had these events in his heart and I thought that it was only right that we named the event after him.

Q: Of course one of Alastair’s daughter’s ran last year.

JW: Yes, I wasn’t involved last year but Alison ran last year and I think Emily, Alison and Alastair’s wife, Wendy are all going to do it this year.

It is great for the town. We hope that all those thousands of fans that still sing Ali’s name at the games come out in force and support the run and I am sure they will have a great time.

Q: For anyone that jogs, parkruns or races, whatever ability it is special to finish in a football stadium, isn’t it?

JW: Oh it is, there is a fantastic atmosphere because obviously there are two events, we have the 2k fun run and we also have the 5k run, so as people are finishing whichever one they are running in you have got the support of the other runners sat in the stadium cheering them on. Other than last year but it will be back this year, we play Chariots of Fire theme as they run into the stadium. I know that each runner loves that and it will be back on this year. Hopefully, all being well, we will have pictures of Ali and commentary of Ali up on the big screen, that is what we are hoping to achieve this year. So, it will be fantastic for all involved.

Q: So, people that run the 5k can progress to the Middlesbrough 10k can’t they?

JW: Yes, that is what we are trying to do. We have tried to create a stepping stone for the 10k  because that has been a major event in the town since 2005. We are always out there beating the drum about people being healthier and fitter and so there are all the stepping stones there, there is a 2k, the 3k, the 5k and the 10k. Obviously and on top of that there is the Redcar half marathon that we would like to think people could achieve at some point as well.

Q: How long after the 10k is Redcar half marathon?

JW: It is 4 weeks after 10k, it is October 1st Redcar half marathon. So, you could train up for the 10k and then still get a couple of longer runs in and then start to taper off in time for the Redcar half marathon. So, I think the timing for the runs in Middlesbrough and on Teesside is perfect.

Q: It is a great thing that there seem to be more people running than ever before.

JW: Oh there are. I think everyone notices now the nights are starting to get lighter you can see people out all the time. The 10k route especially with it being marked, so people know the distances and they know the times and I think that route has been great for the town as well.

It is always a great event and one of my favourite day’s of the year but the permanent renaming after the great, late Alastair Brownlee and the involvement of his family is bound to make the Riverside Run that bit more special.

Alastair’s widow Wendy said: “I am really honoured to have such a wonderful and prestigious event named after Ali – he would be so proud.

“I know what this event meant to him, he was always excited when he was leaving the house on the morning knowing he was going to meet so many people and to be able to cheer and encourage each and every one of them on.”

To register for either the 5k or 2k please visit www.runmiddlesbrough.com

Entries are also being taken for the 2017 Taylor Wimpey Tees Pride 10k and 3k Fun Run which takes place on Sunday, September 3.

Simon Yates – My Mountain Life – Middlesbrough Theatre

In the remote Siula Grande mountain in Peru in June 1985, mountaineer Simon Yates was faced with an unbelievable situation. But then again as an incredibly experienced worldwide adventurer Simon knows how to face up to hair raising situations and quickly analyse the right way out of amazing situations.

simon-yatesIn a really gripping talk illustrated by breath taking photography and short film clips Simon took the audience on a mouth watering trip around the tops of the world. From the Alps, to the Himalayas, the bottom of South America, to the tips of Greenland we climbed the near vertical walls of rock and ice in the company of our ever calm host.

His quests to conquer the previously unclimbed still takes Simon to all parts of the globe. He has come a long way from his Leicestershire village, about as far from mountains as you could wish to be born. Simon told us of the amazing temperature ranges in the giant mountains of Pakistan, in his tent at 6000 metres the thermometer went from +38 C to -5C in a few minutes. There was spending over 20 days scaling shear vertical cliffs in the Andes. Or Tierra Del Fuego where it is so remote that not only does no one live there but it wasn’t even mapped. A true wilderness that has drawn Simon Yates back again and again.

But back to the cliff hanger for that is what it was. Below Simon his climbing partner Joe Simpson was apparently dangling from the end of a rope but had not responded for well over an hour. Gradually his weight was pulling Simon off the mountain, who was also starting to freeze. The man at the top found a knife in his clothing and took a fateful decision, which he said was really his only option and cut the rope. Amazingly both men survived and that action has been recorded in a book and film, “Touching the Void,” it made both men famous.

But here tonight was the story from the other view point, not the climber that then plunged to the bottom of a crevasse and somehow survived but the climber at the top of the rope who said matter a factly that once he found the knife it was his only option. And it worked! They both lived to tell their tales.

It was a thrilling ride tonight without getting up off our seats. As well as the quiet calm, that must be so essential for a climber of the world’s great peaks, Simon Joyce transmitted his passion and drive for adventure. A group of scouts were sitting amongst the big audience, I wonder how many of them will be inspired to pursue their own adventures.

Simon Yates – Middlesbrough Theatre – Thursday 2nd March

There is a really interesting range of acts programmed for this the 60th anniversary season of the Middlesbrough Theatre. This Saturday join broadcaster John Suchet as he delves into the life of the most naturally-gifted composer that ever lived, Mozart.
