Rural Arts Menu for 2014

Home » Newsroom » Rural Arts Menu for 2014
untitled

On Wednesday Jane Lush and I travelled to Tatton for a meeting with Cheshire Rural Touring Arts where the new menu for 2014 was discussed. For the first time promoters like the Community Centre have details of both spring and autumn shows and I have to say there is a wealth of wonderful things to choose from.
It is our intention next year to have two children's shows as well as a theatrical production and a music/dance evening for an adult, or at least an 'older' family audience. The decision rests not only on what is available but also what will fit in with existing commitments that are in the calendar.
The Family Film nights on the 4th Friday in the month are fixed, as is 'Allo 'Allo in February and the two productions of the Ashton Hayes Theatre Group. But that still leaves plenty of great shows to pick from.

Here is just a flavor of some of the things on offer;
Chekhov's The Seagull - a fresh approach, hilarious but with an emotional punch
The Second Minute - presented by Nottingham Play house and based on letters written in World War One
Wingin It - a dazzling guitar duo that were a smash hit in Kelsall last season
Northumbria — traditional and contemporary dance followed by a ceilidh
Circus Bezercus - comedy clowning
Town - a verse drama with music by two former Cheshire Poet Laureates. They gave a brief sample of the work, and it was enthralling.
Pacific Curls -Three female musicians offering Scottish and Maori music and vocals
Tell Tale Heart - a gripping tale of murder in the dark
.... and this without the list of children's shows!

We will be delighted to have some feedback and suggestions. Please contact me on 01829 741962 and let me know your views. The more people we can get to help us make the final choice, the better.
The Committee wants to bring you the very best of modern arts performances and are delighted that, through Cheshire Rural Touring Arts and the subsidies they offer, we can achieve this aim.

Rivers may seem to be permanent features of the landscape though this is a relative matter in historical terms. Flowing across different rock types conditions the course of a river. A river such as the Gowy does not pass through the school geography stages of youthful, mature and old age. Its course is dominated by a low gradient producing a meandering journey across a shallow, virtually...

Ten years ago, Jim Grogan was looking to have the woodland measured against a standard, to gain an independent view of what was being achieved and what improvements might be recommended.

The scheme recognises and rewards well managed parks and green...
