  • Grottos: A journey into the mystical

    The use of natural grottos since Ancient Greece has been intimately intertwined with the religious mystical experience. Such experience was aroused by the unique, spellbinding natural characteristics of these spaces. These enrapturing caves, witnesses to the caprices of tidal waters and playful springs, were associated with nymphs, minor divinities of nature thought to live nearby water.

    Join Art Historian and Artist Florencia Nannetti  for a fascinating talk that will unearth many of the mysteries that lay within ancient grottos, and explore how contemporary artists have engaged in creative recreations of these natural wonders.

    For more information on Grottos Talks series or to book, please visit orleanshousegallery.org or call 0208 831 6000.

    Simon Brodkin – Let Me introduce Myself

    You may know him as “comedy legend”1 Lee Nelson or as the “unfunny pillock”2 who gave Theresa May a P45, but you won’t know him as “tiny Jew”3 Simon Brodkin.

    After three hugely successful series of Lee Nelson on the BBC, multiple TV appearances (Live at the Apollo, Sunday Night at The Palladium, C4’s Comedy Gala), and several world-famous stunts on the likes of Donald Trump, Kanye West & Sepp Blatter, Simon unveils his funniest persona yet; himself. In this highly-anticipated ‘debut’ show, the award-winning, critically-acclaimed comedian takes us from his childhood growing up on the mean streets of Hampstead Village, to his adulthood as a failed doctor, inept parent and fairly rubbish Jew. “Prodigious talent” The Times; “Satire so sharp you could slash a tyre with it” Daily Telegraph; “Get him out” Donald Trump

     1 The Sun,2 Ex-Deputy Prime Minister Damian Green, 3 Twitter                                            

    Please Note: this is a Work in progress show; running time approx. 60 minutes.

    Tickets:  £10

    Pre-show supper available; £9.50 per person.

  • Landscape of Fancy: The gardens and their grottos

    What happened to grottos after their celebrated popularity in Ancient Greece? They were certainly not forgotten amongst the mist of time. These fantastical caves were later on brought back to life in the context of the landscape garden.

    The poet Alexander Pope, who moved to his new residence in Twickenham in 1719, was one of the first ones to build a grotto in England. He took such a fancy for it, that he spent more than 20 years working on and altering it!
    But this is not the only grotto in the city.

    Join Art Historian and Artist Florencia Nannetti  for a talk to learn more about the garden grottos and their fascinating secrets.

    For more information on Grottos Talks series or to book, please visit orleanshousegallery.org or call 0208 831 6000.

    The Three Pigs and The Wolf plus Captain Grimey

    The Three Pigs and The Wolf is a lively show that breathes new life into these well-known characters - each of the pigs has an air of mischief and naivety, while the wicked wolf has just a hint of a wry smile.

    Captain Grimey is the dirtiest, most miserable, one-legged sea captain in the world. It is not until the golden Dolphin befriends him, and helps him to see the error of his ways, that he becomes Captain Shiney and finds true happiness, in this humorous morality tale.

  • The Imagined Grotto: Grottos in literature, painting and film

    A hiding space for the prosecuted, a spot for magical powers to unravel, the resting place of a cursed treasure and much more.

    Grottos have permeated the imagination beyond the garden, making their way to become a fundamental element in the visual arts, including paintings, illustrations, popular movies, and renowned writings.

    This talk, delivered by Art Historian and Artist Florencia Nannetti explores the multiple representations of grottos and the many ingenious ways in which these natural caves have provided the perfect setting for a myriad of stories.
