Rural Arts event – ‘A Brief history of music’

‘A Brief History of Music’- Saturday 9th May, 7.30pm

All welcome to enjoy our latest Rural Arts Touring event, which is suitable for all ages.  A family ticket is just £18.30 and accompanying carers may have a free ticket.

Refreshments and raffle will be available in the interval.


Blast from the Past-page-001


The latest show from acclaimed musicians Blast from the Past takes in
600 years of musical history in 90 minutes! Beginning in the Middle Ages and
ending up in the 20th century (and incorporating everything in between!) this
fun and fast-moving show is a whistle-stop tour of Western musical history.
Featuring long forgotten songs and tunes (not to mention jokes!) Blast
from the Past paint a vibrant and vivid picture of our musical DNA, mixing the
familiar and the obscure, the raucous and the reflective and the courtly and
the commonplace.
The show combines the vigour of the medieval period, the musical
intricacy of the Renaissance, the grandeur of the Baroque and the pomp and
bombast of Victoriana. Add to that the wit of Blackadder and 1066 And All That
and the stage is set for a veritable musical feast!
Complete with a bewildering array of instruments such as hurdy-gurdy,
rauschpfeife and vihuela (and that’s just the first 100 years!) ‘A Brief History of
Music‘ uses tunes, songs and humour to take you on a musical journey from
which you won’t want to return!

We are delighted to welcome back ‘A Blast from the Past’ as their ‘Medieval Christmas’ event proved so popular!  The ‘Brief History of Music’ will be suitable for everyone aged 5 to 105!  Tickets cost £7 adult, £6 concession, £4.50 child, £18.50 family (2+2).  Under the Rural Arts Touring scheme, 20% of ticket sales will be donated back to hall funds.

Park Action Day

Very many thanks to everyone who came to help tidy the play area . We cleared numerous trailer-loads of brambles and dead wood, several bags of assorted rubbish and even discovered a dumped bathroom basin!
As a temporary measure some plastic fencing has been put in place to keep the ditch out of bounds until the strands of barbed wire etc can be removed and a permanent fence installed to fill the far end gap.  All helpers welcome to help with the next session!

A very busy few hours were spent in the recreation ground  clearing and burning more brambles and other rubbish from behind the garages, as well as removing a trailer load of paving slabs and builder’s rubble that had been dumped in and beside the children’s play area. There is still a great deal more to be done in the play area and we hope to have another go at it, probably on the 25th April. Lots of helpers would be appreciated to get the job done!
