ROCK AND A HARD PLACE - a new play from Journeymen Theatre

IN AID OF STROUD WOMEN'S REFUGE

Kayleigh is a talented teenager whose life should be full of promise. Instead, she finds herself in a cycle of domestic abuse from which there seems no escape until Auntie Jan helps her find a way out.

Thoroughly researched from real life experiences, this new play vividly illustrates the spectrum of violence in the home, from the mind games of coercive control to the violence of murder. Whilst the topic is sombre, the play is lively and entertaining, as well as thought provoking.

Sunday 3rd March, 4.00pm. Chantry Centre, Dursley. http://www.chantrycentre.org/

Click here for tickets or from 'Inches', Parsonage Street, Dursley

Tickets: £7.50. Concessions £5.00. Students FREE.

MoMac'nMe

MoMac'nMe

Fri, 15 Mar 2019 19:00

If you like a roistering St Patrick's celebration, you'll enjoy MoMac'nMe, playing the Oldridge Bar, Kingshill House, Dursley, on Friday 15 March.

These accomplished musicians have a unique and mixed sound, and grew out of a shared passion for traditional Celtic music and songs. Their repertoire combines Irish and Scottish with English material. The singing of the Clancy brothers from Ireland and the Scottish duo the Corries have been particularly influential. 'Mac' Cullen, 'Mo' Turton and Phil Dee have recently been joined by Guy Halley on the violin adding his classical background, with a touch of gypsy jazz, to the mix.

The kitchen and bar will be open from 7.00 with the entertainment starting around 8.00, children accompanied by an adult are welcome. There is no entry charge but we do pass the hat round.

First Ron will show you, six different works of his own and explain the different methods he employed to achieve the effects. You can then choose to have a go at any of these or any other ideas that might have occurred to you during the demonstration.

This is not a prescriptive workshop it's all about experimenting. Ron will provide all the materials and equipment needed for a flat fee of £10 so no need to fret about having everything you might need. You will be working in oil or acrylics.

The word abstract is often off-putting but if you think of it as expressing yourself in a less representational way and relax, it's great fun.
