Last year Brian and I spent an evening in Angers in France. There was obviously an Arts Festival on and as we took our seat in a restaurant in the main square we could see a stage and 'stuff' in front of the very ornate Town hall.
What happened next is one of those lovely things that can happen unexpectedly on holiday. A couple of oddly dressed men — were they carrying trumpets? — walked through the dining room and went upstarirs. There was a fanfare and then a musical procession wound its way through the square to the stage and then ........ well, within the next 40 minutes we enjoyed a colourful, cacophonous and dazzling display of music, lights and WATER!
In time to the music, water squirted, sprang and cascaded from people and things all over the front of the Town Hall. It was just an amazing sight and left us with big grins over our faces, it was sheer entertainment and great fun.
Why should this interest you here in Tarvin? Well, one of the groups responsible for this spectacular was called Avanti Display and they are bringing their own brand of crazy, amazing humour to Tarvin on Friday 1st November in 6 Impossible Things.
Oh, by the way.......water is definitely NOT involved, so don't wear your wellies!
Go to www.avantidisplay.co.uk or www.artizani.net for more details.
Tickets are £5 for children under 14 and £8 for adults. The performance starts at 7.30 and lasts for 1 hour 20 minutes plus and interval for refreshments. Tickets are available from the Post Office or from me on 01829 741962 or from Alan Wilkinson on 01829 740868. We understand that Cheshire Rural Touring Arts team may be bringing some important visitors along to see just how great the service is, so I do hope we can deliver a sell out performance.

Those of us amongst the Tarvin population who have been around a while can remember a time before the A51 bypass; when huge lorries came through the village and the bollard opposite the pubs and chip shop was in a permanent state of demolition! Building the bypass made a huge difference to the centre of the village. But there was a wonderful by-product — the abandoned part-fields, no longer of...
As Christmas approaches we all do a little online shopping as it's so convenient. However when you are not in having your delivery driver put your pricey goods in the safe place really isn't that safe as we found out earlier on this week when a resident of our village gave us a warning after she got her parcels stolen. For those who use Amazon they have an option of...
