Ace actor Shobna Gulati has taken on the role of Mari Huff in a new version of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, so Hannah jumped on the Zoom to find out more. Not that we needed much excuse. They chat about being on tour with your son, embracing the grey and working with Victoria Wood.
Mick speaks to Ellie Greenhalgh, the lead on the Women’s Development Unit, a partnership project between The Connection at St Martin’s and Solace Women’s Aid, and Caroline Muir from the 18Keys project at St Martin’s Trust, about the specific needs of homeless women, and a new strategy that aims to end women’s homelessness in London – and hopefully beyond.
