April 2nd is the date for what it is hoped will be the first in a series of classical music concerts in Dulverton.  Caroline Clipsham will give a recital of piano pieces including works by Chopin, Beethoven , Brahms and Rachmaninov.

 

Caroline has won numerous scholarships and prizes during the course of her lifetime in music.  She has performed at the Wigmore Hall  and St. John’s, Smith Square in London as well as in performances around Europe, Canada , New Zealand and Eastern Europe.

 

The venue for the recital will be the premises of Exmoor Studios, in the centre of Dulverton.  The building is a converted bank which has been re-purposed as a recording and performance space, with broadcast quality sound and lighting equipment.  It is a small, intimate space and the organiser, Nigel Penfold, believes that it is particularly suited to solo performances of classical music.  The performers will not be distanced from the audience, and the personal contact between the music, the player and the audience will be enhanced.

 

Copies of Caroline’s CD’s and DVD’s will be available for purchase at £10 each.

 

Tickets are £15.00, to include a glass of wine and can be purchased from www.bookwhen.com/classic.

Doors will open at   7.30p, and the performance will begin at 8 p.m. prompt.

There will be an interval and the recital will finish at about 9.30pm.

 

Hefted is a play told through nine stories embedded in the landscape, history and psyche of rural life, presented by four actors who conjure a score of characters between them, interspersed with song and a spectacular soundscape.

All nine stories explore the notion of being ‘hefted’ – deeply connected to the land.

The stories of those who live in the countryside are rarely heard or heeded; this play opens the door for those stories to be shared.

“A powerful, intense and gripping production that transformed our village hall into a window onto our landscape.” “You could almost smell it – of course you couldn’t, but you could, if you know what I mean”. “I was so engrossed that I nearly leapt up and joined in – and I’ve never been on stage in my life!”

Written by the wonderful South West based playwright David Lane who understands our region and performed by Devon theatre company, Multi Story, this highly recommended production is rooted in our rural culture and times.

We continue to have the safety of our audience at the front of our minds and will continue to follow all government guidance and regulations. As we go to press, we will continue to offer a reduced number of tickets to ensure social distancing, good ventilation and encourage face masks to reassure the more vulnerable people in our community. All actors and accompanying technical staff will have had a negative lateral flow test result before the production. If we have to cancel, we will offer a rescheduled event or reimburse your ticket.

Organised by Dulverton Development Forum in partnership with Take Art – quality guaranteed!

Tickets £10 available from Dulverton Post Office, online  https://takeart.org/event/multi-story-theatre-company-hefted  or contact Jan Ross 01398 323818, janaross2003@yahoo.co.uk
