In aid of The Old Grammar School Restoration Project

With kind permission of Lord and Lady Ronaldshay

The event is being held by Richmond Building Preservation Trust to raise funds for the restoration of Richmond Grammar School.

The school once boasted Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) as one of its many famous pupils. After Richmond School, Charles attended Rugby and Oxford University and became a brilliant mathematician. However, fame came his way under his pseudonym of Lewis Carroll when he wrote the Alice Books.

We hope the event will highlight his association with Richmond and The Old Grammar School.

Venue: TRINITY TOWER
Time: 10.30
Certificates are given out for the winners of the Allotment and Garden Competition.

Nowadays, after some introductory remarks by the Town Mayor, and thanksgiving prayers by a clergyman, a local farmer presents to the Mayor a small sackful of newly threshed corn. This the Mayor hands over to a miller, who examines the corn and when he passes favourable judgement on its quality, the Mayor presents the farmer with a bottle of wine. Other bottles are broached, and bystanders are invited to join in a toast to a good harvest.

Richmondshire Concerts present the Chiaroscuro Quartet
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
Internationally acclaimed classical string quartet opens the 71st season of Richmondshire Concerts.

The Chiaroscuro Quartet, under its leader Alina Ibragimova, is praised as "a trailblazer for the authentic performance of High Classical chamber music" in Gramophone magazine. The musicians perform works of the Classical and early Romantic periods on gut strings and with historical bows.

Haydn's much-loved 'Joke' Quartet leads naturally into one of Beethoven's early Quartets, still rooted in the Classical idiom. The Quartet is then joined by star clarinettist Annelien van Wauwe for Mozart's wonderful Clarinet Quintet.

Tickets are £15 at www.rsconcerts.org or at Castle Hill Bookshop, or on the door, subject to availability. Season Tickets, for all six concerts of the season, are £45.

David Cemmick
Venue: The Station
An exhibition by the internationally renowned artist and sculptor.

David Cemmick has been a freelance artist since his first sell-out solo exhibition in 1974, at the age of nineteen. Over the past four decades he has travelled extensively, gathering field experience and documenting scientific expeditions in some of the world’s remotest habitats.

This has helped fuel his deep respect and fascination for the animal world and given him the thirst to make ‘art’ from what he has seen in nature. From field sketch to finished painting, sculptures in bronze and clay, figurative sculptures and sketches.

Deeds Not Words with Helen Pankhurst
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 2.30pm
Suffragette descendent and campaigner Helen Pankhurst charts how the lives of women in the UK have changed over the last 100 years.

It is one hundred years after the Fourth Reform Act, which saw propertied women over 30 gain the vote for the first time.

At this last event of the Richmond Walking & Book Festival Helen Pankhurst celebrates landmark successes, little-known victories, where progress has stalled or reversed, looking into politics, money, identity, violence, culture and social norms.

Combining historical insight with inspiring argument, Deeds Not Words reveals how far women have come since the suffragettes, how far we still have to go and how we might get there.

Tickets from £6 to £10 are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking service.
