    The Lost Dress of Elizabeth I

    The Bacton Altar Cloth at Hampton Court Palace

    The only surviving example of Elizabeth I's dresses

    Following new research and conservation, Historic Royal Palaces Curators believe that the Bacton Altar Cloth once formed part of a dress worn by Elizabeth herself.

    The high-status silver chamblet silk, professional embroidery including gold and silver thread, and distinct evidence of pattern cutting all suggest that the item was once an item of elite court dress. Tudor law meant that only the very highest levels of nobility and royalty were allowed to wear dress that contained gold and silver.

    New research supports the theory that this was intended for the highest level of customer and that it is an item of dress from Elizabeth's own wardrobe, making it the only known surviving example of Elizabeth I's clothing.

    Integrity

    A campaign pledge to abolish student tuition fees – for the bin? A stray hand on a delicate knee – a slip? A meeting at the boss’s place – an ambush?

    What price integrity? Can those with power or influence be expected always to behave with integrity, political or sexual? Are we that different?

    In a dramatic finale, YOU decide…!

    ‘Engaging, sexy, immensely entertaining, yet thought-provoking’, Integrity by Vaughan Evans was premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 2018 and recieves its London premiere in Barnes in October 2019.

    Walk around King's Cross and St Pancras

    If you want to come of this walk you will need to become a member of The Arts Society Richmond. See www.theartssocietyrichmond.org

    The application form for this walk is at www.theartssocietyrichmond.org/visits

    10.30am    Meet at the enormous statue of an embracing couple under the very obvious clock inside St. Pancras station on the upper concourse at the end of the tracks.  It's a good 10 minute walk from the Victoria Line platform.  Follow the signs to St Pancras International.

    Moving the Channel Tunnel Terminus to St Pancras became the catalyst for major change in this region of North London.  Over two decades some 67 acres of under-used railway lands behind St Pancras station and its sister terminus at King's Cross have been transformed into a complete mixed-use commercial, residential, educational and cultural-neighbourhood.  Our guide Martin Olutniks will guide us through this canal-side setting which is peppered with historic structures.

    Hamlet

    In the rain-soaked streets of modern Denmark civil unrest is simmering.  The King has died suddenly and strangely.  His brother Claudius has immediately seized the throne in a breach of custom, democracy and law, and then married the widowed Queen.  The heir apparent, young Hamlet, has been brushed aside.  Can friends, lovers, political manoeuvring or popular support for Hamlet sort this out?  Or will violence bring down the Royal House?

    Samhain special evening (Singing and Shamanic drumming)

    Am amazing opportunity to gather for this critical day.

    The "dark half of the year" starts after the harvest is completed and we will hear stories from the celtic traditions and the middle ages, sing songs writen for this day and participate in a shamanic druming journey.

    We are so very lucky to count with the Reverend Proffesor June Boyce-Tillman as a special guest that will be run in tandem with Maria Soriano.

    Rev Prof June Boyce-Tillman MBE, is a noted academic, composer and performer whose outstanding work in the field of music, spirituality and theology, and her concern for the role of women in the church, has won her worldwide admiration. Founder of the Hildegard Network, she has lectured and published widely on aspects of interfaith dialogue, healing and reconciliation and Professor of Applied Music at the University of Winchester, has been an inspiration to several generations of students. June spent time in Canada visiting native American Shammans, from which she learnt shammanic jouneying and will perform some of her drumming for us that night.

    Dress for the occasion! Black and dark colours, anything your imagination takes you to. Bring an object to contribute to our ephemera art centre piece!
