Ms Dynamite Guest Of Honour At Old School Anniversary

Host of stars to celebrate 35 years of Wac Arts school in north London.

MS DYNAMITE has been confirmed as a guest of honour at her old school’s giant birthday bash in Belsize Park, north London.

Wac Arts, a charity and performance school, supports gifted young people facing exceptional challenges and hardship to fulfilling their potential through their arts and media programmes.

Among its alumni are 1996 Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominee Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Secrets & Lies), 2004 Oscar nominee Sophie Okenedo (Hotel Rwanda), world-famous jazz musicians Courtney Pine and Julian Joseph and four Mercury and Mobo Award winners, including Ms Dynamite and Zoe Rahman.

A spokesperson for the organisation described the 35th anniversary celebration, taking place on Sunday (Dec 8), as “the biggest birthday party of the year” and has promised a “magical night.”

He said: “Wac Arts is a space where young people can feel safe and enjoy their pursuit of performing arts and media, no matter what background they come from or challenges they may face.

“With new challenges ahead, Wac Arts is preparing to continue the exciting and industry developing work that it has been proudly creating since it started.”

He added: “Even in heavily uncertain financial times for the arts, the charity is pushing ahead creating new opportunities for young people.”

Ms Dynamite, who recently returned to the spotlight after eight years to releaseCloud 9, will be joining other prominent alumni such as Kevin Mark Trail (The Streets), pianist Julian Joseph, actor Danny Sapani, actress Ann Mitchell, and playwright Che Walker (Playwright).

There will also have a special video message from Hollywood star Jean-Baptiste.
