  • Lecture on the Last Supper in Pompeii

    Drinks from 7pm, one-hour lecture at 8pm. £5 payable on the door. No ticket needed.

    Description

    For the Romans, life meant getting together to eat and drink in a pub or at a banquet.  "Last Supper in Pompeii" celebrates the Roman love affair with food and drink – a journey, from fields and vineyards to markets and shops, from tables to toilets and the tomb. 

    We see the influence of the Greeks and mysterious Etruscans, and  visit fertile Vesuvius to see how Romans got their food and drink (and a Roman vineyard buried in AD79!).  Into the bustling city, past hawkers, shops and bars we enter the house, visit the shrine of the gods (with a chicken!) and the gorgeous garden with its flowers and fountains.   We recline in the dining room, with exotic food and fine wine, and surrounded by Greek-style luxury – fine silver, mosaics and frescoes.

    Dare we see the kitchen? No fridge, no running water, no hygiene –  and there is the toilet, feeding into a cess pit below. Escape to Roman Britain with objects from sheepy Chedworth and metropolitan London with the first brewer, the first cooper and even the first pub landlord! Finally we see the monuments of the dead feasting into the afterlife. Seize the day –  Carpe diem!!

    I, AmDram

    Amateur dramatics. The hidden history of many a performance artist.

    From four generations of leading ladies comes one queer Londoner, sharing a story of return and reconciliation – with her hometown, cultural inheritance and secret love of musical theatre. Step-ball-changing between suburb and city, I, AmDram minds the gap between the identities we assert and the worlds we leave.

    This warm, funny and beautifully written solo show was a highlight of the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe, and is a must-see for anyone who has ever done anything for the love.

    Supported by Arts Council England. Developed through Starting Blocks at Camden People's Theatre. The artist is honoured to enjoy the support of the Welwyn Thalians Musical and Dramatic Society (est. 1929).

    Hannah Maxwell is a writer, performer, artist and podcaster. Her writing has appeared in The Guardian and The Scotsman. The playtext of I, AmDram was published by Oberon Books in May 2019. She collaborated with international lesbian performance company Split Britches as co-writer on Unexploded Ordnances (La Mama ETC, NY and Barbican Centre, 2018).

    Chichester Psalms

    Bernstein: Chichester Psalms

    Our summer concerts are becoming known for new musical discoveries, and this alluring selection of music for choir, harp, percussion and organ is no exception. The exhilarating rhythms and catchy melodies of Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms are balanced by the brooding colours of Tarik O’Regan’s Dorchester Canticles and Bob Chilcott’s gently affirmative Canticles of Light. Music for harp solo, and songs for tenor with harp accompaniment, complete a fascinating programme.

    Twickenham Choral perform C.P.E. Bach’s Magnificat and Handel’s Dixit Dominus

    For a summer evening of magnificent Baroque exuberance, Twickenham Choral’s concert in the soaring vaults of the Landmark would be hard to beat. Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach’s elaborate setting of the Magnificat is also a son’s tribute to his father, while Handel’s much-loved Dixit Dominus, unarguably one of his great works, is a showpiece for singers and string players alike – vivacious, triumphant and brilliant.
