Story telling, harp and song with Adverse Camber - Dreaming the Night Field
Immerse yourself in glorious living landscapes and the brilliant night sky to discover a world that’s bristling with life, filled with animals, people and constellations caught between creation and destruction. Gwydion, nephew to the King, a magician and master storyteller, provokes a war between North and South Wales and unleashes a chaos of consequences. Blodeuwedd, an intoxicatingly beautiful woman conjured from flowers, is torn between desire and duty, with fateful results. Honour, justice, magic and transformation collide in a story as relevant today as it ever was, where people seek to spin, manipulate and control, and nature reveals its deep power. By turns, thrilling, funny, powerful and poetic, this spellbinding new performance vividly evokes the ancient Celtic legend of the Fourth Branch of the Mabinogion. Dreaming the Night Field features one of Wales’ most engaging storytellers alongside exquisitely haunting live music. English and Welsh are artfully woven together to make these ancient voices and living landscapes come alive in an exhilarating performance. Touring Dorset with Artsreach, the counties touring arts charity.

Danny Boyle’s commission for 14-18 NOW to mark the centenary of Armistice Day.
 the public is invited to gather on beaches across the UK for an informal, nationwide gesture of remembrance for the men and women who left their home shores during the First World War. Each event centres around the drawing of a large-scale portrait of a casualty from the First World War which will be washed away as the tide comes in. In addition, the public will be asked to join in by creating stenciled silhouettes of people in the sand, remembering the millions of lives lost or changed forever by the conflict. A new poem by Carol Ann Duffy has been commissioned to be performed by local communities, and individuals are encouraged to take part online and say a personal thank you and goodbye at pagesofthesea.org.uk

“I’m delighted that the choir can add to the different ways in which the local community is recognising the centenary,” says Alex,
and I hope people will see the concert as an opportunity for reflection as well as a chance to hear some beautiful music.”  
There are no tickets for this event, so please just come along. The Requiem is about 40 minutes long.  The concert is on Remembrance Sunday, 11 November, at 4pm in St Michael’s Church, Lyme Regis.
