LANDSCAPES & SEASCAPES

FEB 28   LUSCIOUS LANDSCAPES & SEASCAPES  10.30-4.30 £67 [Improvers] Any media/mixed.


These are always our most popular subjects, or why not combine both?! Whether separately or together we’ll examine some famous examples and consider the colours, textures and energy that might inspire our own luscious scenes. Following a demo, we'll experiment with some techniques that overlay colour, consider colour combinations and plan our painting for maximum impact. Taking inspiration from the masters we’ll summon up the courage to exaggerate our accents and textures to truly Luscious levels.


You can select your paint media, and may find that combining several will be exciting [see materials list for suggestions]. For this reason we’ll work in an A4 up to A3 format to focus on technique rather than covering large areas. You will then be able to take this and use in your own designs. If you are yearning to work large watch out for our Big Painting Day on April 24th, the culmination of our spring programme.


Materials suggestions here, allow time to gather!


 Come and see our new style, at a glance programme here, We have new courses and are back to fuller days and half days following your feedback. With a ‘meet the tutor’ session to get a feel for Liana’s well-structured, progressive classes [ come and ask any questions]; lots of speciality workshops with fun techniques in differing mediums and a series of ongoing courses to come and learn or improve your watercolour or acrylic painting.  Hopefully there’s something for everyone, come and treat yourself to a day of painting in a light airy studio, with good company and always some laughter and surprises!

Simon Evans: Have We Met?

Simon Evans: Have We Met?


After finally solving the mystery of his existence and

true identity in Work of the Devil, Simon finds that he

has still not overcome the more daily challenges of

remembering what he came upstairs for, who these

grown-ups are that live with him (and what they have

done with his children?) and how can that footage be

from 2009, when he only bought those shoes a few

months ago?

“In Greek mythology, the Muses were the daughters of

Mnemosyne, goddess of memory - though ironically,

there is no easy way to remember her name. But

Memory was thus clearly regarded by the ancient

Greeks as the mother of the arts, wellspring of

inspiration, the compost in which imagination takes

root. Our last defence against tyranny, the consolation

of the just and the seat of the soul. Without memory, the

illusion of self crumbles. Mine, however, is shot. So

where does that leave me?

FROM PALETTE KNIFE TO TROWELL!

MAR 6 FROM PALETTE KNIFE TO TROWEL! NEW! Learn to manipulate thick paint. 10.30-4.30 £67 [Beginners & Improvers] Acrylics


Palette knife paintings can be captivating as their planes create shapes and lines in 3D. Many of you would like to paint with a palette knife but find it daunting and the results sometimes messy. It just takes a little know-how and practice. Liana often says if you can butter a sandwich you can paint with a palette knife! So we’ll get our juices flowing by looking at some impressive examples of palette knife work. Then we’ll consider why every acrylics or oil painter needs a palette knife and how to choose from the bewildering array of shapes; how we can build up palette knife skills by using them in a simpler way; before a demo considering the strokes that lay down and manipulate thicker paint in the way the subject needs.


Introducing larger tools for fun, may appeal to the adventurous and more abstracted painters ...so get ready to raid the shed for trowel tools and see what’s possible with big swathes of colour!


Sounds complicated? Not really, if you can butter a sandwich! Squelching paint onto a canvas/ board is so seductive and satisfying as you produce something uniquely yours!

FLORAL STORIES

FLORAL STORIES

MARCH 26 FLORAL STORIES -NEW! Exciting Loose flower painting and compositions.10.30- 4.30 £67 [Beginners & Improvers] Watercolour, inks, acrylics


Another perennial favourite to paint and to decorate our homes, flower painting bridges between our love of flowers and the possibility to loosen and paint in an abstracted way as we seek to capture and express more than a photo......after all we have photos to capture an image ‘as is’. As artists we can draw the viewers’ eye to what WE see, what WE enjoy particularly ...the colours, the shapes, the contrasts. Additionally we can design the composition and add our own decorative elements and background. What's not to love!


The thin, long Rigger brush will be ideal today, [not expensive, so do consider treating yourself to one or I’ll have a couple you can try].


Firstly, after a demo, we’ll practice loosening up with some wet in wet individual flowers : then consider how to place them on the page and how to build a composition that has variety and shape. You may like to try use wet medium on thick watercolour paper or canvas [see materials list below] or if you are feeling very adventurous, perhaps bring a pale, plain lampshade or cushion cover.

The Hound of the Baskervilles (Live on Stage)

The Hound of the Baskervilles

Live on stage and in person, renowned stars of stage & screen COLIN BAKER (Doctor Who, The Brothers) & TERRY MOLLOY (Mike Tucker in The Archers for 40 years) are joining forces this spring to play the world’s most famous detectives, SHERLOCK HOLMES & DOCTOR WATSON. Alongside DEE SADLER (All Creatures Great & Small, No Place Like Home), they star in a brand new stage adaptation of THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES - originally on tour to commemorate the 120th anniversary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most popular thriller and now extended by popular demand!


“The legend of the Hound Of The Baskervilles has haunted the Baskerville family for generations - none more so than Sir Charles Baskerville, who died in mysterious circumstances worthy of the legend. This leads Doctor Mortimer to consult Sherlock Holmes & Doctor Watson, in the hope of preventing the heir to the Baskerville estate, Sir Henry, from suffering the same fate. But the supernatural seems a very long way from 221B Baker Street…


However, once Holmes & Watson journey to isolated Baskerville Hall, the line between reality and the legend becomes blurred. Death, doom and myth surround them – what is the secret of the butler in the night, whose is the mysterious lantern that shines in the darkness, and what hellish apparition stalks Dartmoor with murderous intent?”


Presented by Crime And Comedy Theatre Company as a radio-play-live-on-stage - our setting is a radio studio, our actors ready as if for a radio broadcast, and our sound effects created live on stage, all combining to transport the audience from Baker Street to Dartmoor, as we bring to life this tale of murder, mystery and horror that’s surely the greatest detective story ever told! A rare chance to see these popular actors live at your local theatre, this is a play not to be missed.

MADAMA BUTTERFLY


When the young geisha, Cio-Cio-San, marries American Naval Officer Pinkerton, she believes she is entering a real, binding marriage for life. Forsaking her religion and community, she learns all too late that for Pinkerton, their marriage is merely an illusion – with tragic consequences.

With a score that includes Butterfly’s aria, 'Un bel dì, vedremo' (‘One fine day’) and the Humming Chorus, Giacomo Puccini’s opera is entrancing and ultimately heart-breaking. Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s exquisite production takes inspiration from 19th-century European images of Japan. Asmik Grigorian performs the role of Cio-Cio-San, with Kevin John Edusei conducting.

APRIL 3 FUN WITH SURPRISING & EASY PRINTING TECHNIQUES! NEW! 10.30-4.30 £67 [Utter Beginners & Improvers] Acrylics


Printing and fine art can be very separate disciplines, but today we will crossover and use simple Mono printing [hand created surfaces of colour, pressed to paper] to create several images that can stand alone or be collaged into paintings, or even applied directly to give extra texture and character onto a painting. You may even like to bring an existing painting that you don’t like and give it a whole new look! With much experimenting we’ll unleash our creativity in a totally different way. Watercolourists may find it is the ideal way for them to embrace mixed media.


We will also be SQUISH printing where acrylics are applied to a specific surface, flipped and manipulated further by hand ….....without even getting your hands dirty! it could be the most fun technique ever and produces crazy, colourful results! Because of drying time we’ll be doing small sample boards/paintings in this impasto technique, feel free to replicate larger at home!

Oye Santana 2024

About Oye Santana


Based around the exciting dance rhythms of Santana’s Latin music, OYE SANTANA is no ordinary tribute to Carlos Santana’s music. More a party than a concert, this is a feast of Latin music, superb musicianship and hit songs, faithfully re-creating the music of Santana.  They bring a powerful and melodic drive to Santana’s Latin rock style, which they play with power, passion and perfection ensuring a fantastic high energy, engaging and fun event. Oye Santana play all the hits including the Grammy award-winning Smooth plus Maria Maria, She’s Not There, Black Magic Woman, Samba Pa Ti, Oye Como Va, Jingo and Corazon Espinado.


The six-piece band line up consists of a superb “Carlos Santana” who looks and sounds identical to the great man himself. Top-notch Spanish and English speaking vocalists compliment them. The music of Carlos Santana is a mixture of Samba, Smooth Latin ballads, Bossa Novas and Latin style rock and Oye Santana's blend of electric and Spanish guitar songs blend perfectly with the authentic percussion section and virtuoso keyboards.


The exuberance of the performance itself is what wins the hearts (and the dancing feet) of audiences from Salsa evenings to sold-out theatres; from intimate parties to thronging festivals; from the UK to events all over Europe.


Above all, it’s the audience reaction that tells you that Oye Santana is special. Close your eyes and you can’t tell the difference, said one promoter; the best tribute band I’ve seen said another. But from their very first gig 8 years ago, people have been commenting on the sheer fun Oye Santana bring to every stage they play on. [266 words]

The Royal Ballet Encore - MACMILLAN CELEBRATED

Choreography Kenneth Macmillan


Danses Concertantes, commissioned by Ninette de Valois in 1955, was MacMillan’s first major work. An early sign of the incredible artistic output that would follow, the work’s critical success spurred MacMillan to abandon performing in favour of choreography. It is followed by Different Drummer, MacMillan’s complex and haunting balletic interpretation of Woyzeck, Georg Büchner's play about a soldier’s descent into madness. The mixed programme concludes with Requiem, his 1976 work for Stuttgart Ballet, created in memory of its late artistic director, MacMillan’s friend and former Royal Ballet dancer and choreographer John Cranko.

APRIL 24 A BIG PAINTING DAY! NEW! Go large in figurative or abstract style. 10.30-4.30 £67 [Bold Beginners & Improvers] Any or mixed media.


They say ‘size matters’ and that’s definitely the theme for today! But large is comparative. Artists often find they have a natural format, some paint miniatures, some medium, some large. School often instilled a small/medium format in us and there we stayed, but experimenting to find your optimum size is liberating. Yet at home space may be an issue, or all that blank canvas too daunting.


Or it feels like materials would be expensive [ try emulsion tester pots and cheaper pound shop acrylics to try this maybe]. So this is an opportunity to have strength in no's, lots of support and to go for it! We'll discuss balance of space, focal areas, scaling up, appropriate tools and bold shapes. Experiment with your style and optimum size. It can release freedom and boldness!


Any subject, any style goes today and you might want to find some inspiration pics and prepare a composition in advance so you have lots of time to paint, or use mine. Consider big tools too that cover space fast ..hint....our favourite kitchen sponge is ideal [see materials list].


Bring the size of canvas [or heavy paper and board] you’d like to try, if you can carry it.... we have the space! Or a3 may be your large? The only rule is that you need a larger cover to protect the surrounding area and if you are likely to paint on the floor [ also liberating ] cushion recommended! Liana will help you plan and adapt to the size throughout.


So, do you dare?!??!!?! Don't miss this chance, it’s go large or go home!

Austen's Women:Lady Susan

Austen's Women: LADY SUSAN

Dyad Productions


From the award-winning creators of Austen's Women, A Christmas Carol, I, Elizabeth, Female Gothic, Christmas Gothic, and A Room of One's Own.


Austen's Women are back - in a brand-new show! Devil-may-care Lady Susan, the coquettish black widow, hunting down not one, but two, fortunes; oppressed, rebellious daughter Frederica; longsuffering sister-in-law Catherine; family matriarch Mrs De Courcy; and insouciant best friend, Alicia.


Return to the Regency period (or rather, Georgian) in this darkly comic tale of society and the women trapped within it; their struggles, their desires, their temptations and manipulations - and at the vanguard, Lady Susan: charming, scheming, witty, and powerful; taking on society and making it her own. But has she met her match?


Based on Jane Austen's first full-length work from 1794, and created entirely from letters, the piece is performed by Rebecca Vaughan and directed by Andrew Margerison.


Created in collaboration with The Old Town Hall, Hemel Hempstead.

Gigspanner Trio (Live on Stage)

Gigspanner Trio

"There’s something of the proverbial elder statesman about Peter Knight, in terms of his place in music, which cannot be overstated. It’s not just in the quality of his playing...there’s a focus on the sheer inventiveness of Peter’s playing, in the adventurous arrangements he shares with his collaborators, and in his musical leadership”


Northern Sky Magazine


Since his inaugural performance with the fledgling Steeleye Span in 1970, Peter Knight has been a mainstay of the British folk scene.


Never one to rest on his laurels, Peter has carved a reputation as a relentlessly questing musician “as mercurial as quicksilver” (Simon Jones/fRoots), and it is never quite so apparent as in his work with the various Gigspanner line-ups.


In the wake of his departure from Steeleye Span, Peter turned his full attention to the Gigspanner Trio and established their reputation as one of the most genuinely ground-breaking forces on the British folk scene, inspiring Maverick magazine to write "Gigspanner are pushing at the boundaries, and in the process are making some of the most beautiful music the genre has to offer" 5***** Maverick Magazine


Described by Folk Radio UK as one of the “most quietly brilliant sets of musicians in the folk world and beyond”, they take self-penned material along with music rooted in the British Isles and beyond, and with the flick of a bow, a finely chosen chord or slip of a beat, produce richly atmospheric arrangements “with notes seemingly plucked from the stars and rhythms from the equator” (Spiral Earth).

Simon and Garfunkel:Through the Years

Critically acclaimed as one of the world’s greatest tribute shows, Simon & Garfunkel Through The Years continues to delight audiences across the globe. Featuring stunning vocal harmonies from world-class musicians, this spectacular concert transports you on a journey through the epic songs and history of the much-loved Simon and Garfunkel.


“One of the greatest tribute shows anywhere in the world”

Stuart Cameron, BBC and ITV Broadcaster


The show is a celebration of the unprecedented rise to fame of two boys from Queens, New York, who went on to become the most successful folk-rock duo of the 1960s, selling 38 million albums in the US alone, and receiving 10 Grammy Awards. In 1981, they performed to over half a million people in their hometown of New York, and in 1990 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

​Collectively known as Bookends, Dan Haynes and Pete Richards have been fronting Simon & Garfunkel Through The Years since its creation in 2011. Much like their idols, they became friends at school and could not resist singing together from a tender age.


Alongside stops in London’s West End, the show has toured extensively around the UK, Europe, United States and Australia, attracting packed houses night after night. With consecutive sell-out runs since 2014 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, they are championed as "one of the best vocal groups touring today", whose sounds are ‘’simply breathtaking’’.

The Kast Off Kinks 2024 (Live on Stage)

The Kast Off Kinks 2024

The iconic British rock band, The Kinks, are often cited as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time.

Although the band’s popularity in the UK waned in the 1970s, they found new commercial success, particularly in the USA, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and returned to the UK top 20 in 1983 with Come Dancing. The Kinks continued as a recording and gigging band until 1996, when the Davies brothers went their separate ways with solo careers.

The Kast Off Kinks formed in 1994 to keep the music playing on, and it is what the name implies - the original line-up consisted of the band that played Lola (apart from Ray and Dave) - Avory, Dalton and Gosling - together  In 2009, the line-up became the band that played Come Dancing - Avory, Gibbons and Rodford (respectively the Kinks’ longest-serving drummer, keyboard player and bassist) - still with Dave Clarke covering for the Davies brothers. Jim then became very busy playing with The Zombies and Argent, so John Dalton was persuaded out of retirement and went on to play very regularly with The Kast Off Kinks.

Very sadly, we lost Jim Rodford in 2018 and Ian Gibbons in 2019. The Kast Off Kinks played the Official Kinks Fan Club gathering in November 2019, with Mark Haley on keyboards, but then John Dalton announced his retirement (again) and the COVID pandemic arrived, so The Kast Off Kinks played no more until the Official Kinks Fan Club gathering in November 2021, when Mike Steed, on bass, joined Dave Clarke, Mick Avory and Mark Haley, with guest performances by Bob Henrit on drums and John Dalton doing some vocals.

Now The Kast Off Kinks, comprising Mick, Dave, Mark and Mike, are back on the road.
