SMAAAK (St Michael & All Angels, Kingsland) was formed with a view to promoting and activating community engagement and to hold community events of interest at the Parish Church and other venues within the parish of Kingsland, including the Coronation Hall
Over the past 7 years a range of activities have been highly successful including:
the h.Art exhibition in September, engaging local artists and attracting a wide audience
Various concerts, including the well-known Arcadia Music Company, Pop-Up Opera and other local, national and international artistes, many introduced by Arts Alive
lectures and exhibitions, and talks of general interest to the lcal community
Profits from events organised by SMAAAK are donated into the Kingsland Church Fabric Fund, on receiving requests for specific expenditure supporting the fabric of this important Grade 1 listed Parish Church.
Built by the Mortimer family in the 12th century and described as a 'treasure in our midst', the Parish Church is rich in history and has a fascinating heritage - witnessing christenings, marriages and funerals over the centuries, and currently in need of further substantial restoration.
