Little Simz describes Mary’s as ‘the place where it all began’

Mary’s Youth Club has been written about in NE Londoner after alumnus Little Simz performed two homecoming shows in Alexandra Palace. It was here that she met her collaborator Inflo.

Mary’s is a free community organisation that supports 415 children each year and has been described by the Mercury Prize winner as: “the place where it all began for me, a second home.”


Described as ‘a hotspot for north London’s emerging talent’, NE Londoner lists previous alumni of Mary’s including Alexandra Burke and Leona Lewis.

Our CEO, Sally Baxter, says “Mary’s is a real community centre – it’s not glitzy – it’s a proper 1970s style community centre. But we have the flexibility to nurture what young people are into, everything we do is about their needs.”

She goes on to say “Our alumni are women doing big things. We want young people to go out there in London and beyond and feel like they belong.”
