June 2017
Saturday, 17th June 2017 - Tuesday, 11th July 2017
John Allcock
Venue: The Station
Landscape exhibition

Although John Allcock describes the greater part of his painting as 'landscape' his work occupies an unusual space within that territory. Views in the conventional sense are rare. Instead, his attention is focussed typically upon the detail of rocks or trees.

Rock outcrops attract his attention frequently: but mountains only rarely. Within the broad scope of landscape painting he offers us faces in the crowd—the “physiognomy” of landscape.

John Allcock took early retirement from an academic career in 2001 in order to paint. He has exhibited widely, particularly in the north of England, and has been represented on four occasions in the annual exhibition of the Pastel Society.

Heritage Uncovered
Venue: The Station
Sarah Dodds' Textile Art comes to The Station.

Heritage Uncovered is a project highlighting the issues faced by museums during times of conflict. Many of the precious artefacts are stored for security or worse, damaged or destroyed. The objects created for this exhibition reflect the treasures which were on display at museums in Syria before the current conflict and can now only be seen in books.

About Sarah...

I am a textile artist based in East Durham.

I work with a variety of textile techniques including embroidery, applique, weaving and felt making to create pieces inspired by the local area and much further afield.

I have travelled widely and use inspiration from around the world investigating traditional textile techniques and materials.

I have a special interest in African textiles and give talks on African fabrics to interested groups.

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A production by Richmond Amateur Dramatic Society.

Every drama group knows the horrors of what can go wrong on opening night, and the ladies of the F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society are no different, with the possible exception that almost everything that could happen does! Scenery collapses, cues are missed, lines forgotten, and sound effects mistimed, as the ladies entertain with the cunning whodunit, ‘Murder At Checkmate Manor.’

And just in case the audience should get bored there's a Film Show and Murder Mystery Quiz, complete with a prize! The crunch comes in the denouement when the ‘murderer’, about to be revealed, has to rush home to bandage up an injured daughter. But Mrs Reece, doyenne of the group, rises above the slings and arrows of outrageous dramatics to save the situation and provide the final inventive twist.

Performances from Thursday 27 to Saturday 29 July and Thursday 3 to Saturday 5 July.

Tickets from £7.50 to £13.50 (includes £1 restoration levy).

Scrooge!
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 19:30 - 22:00
Richmond Operatic Society presents a festive classic!

This festive musical, based on Dickens' much-loved A Christmas Carol, started life as the memorable 1970 film starring Albert Finney before transferring to the stage.

Christmas Eve, 1843: the cruel money-lender Ebenezer Scrooge is confronted by the ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley, who warns Scrooge that he faces damnation unless he mends his ways. Can Scrooge be redeemed? All will be decided by the three spirits who visit him in the course of the night . . .

With a superb score by Lesley Bricusse, whose credits include Pickwick, Dr. Dolittle and Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory, the show features the wonderful Thank You Very Much, I Hate People and the classic Sing A Christmas Carol!
