From the wilds of South Shropshire in the eighteenth century to the loneliness of a modern ’empty-nest’ mother, the experiences of women reverberate through the ages. Women from the LADS theatre group bring you laughter and tears, poetry and song in this exquisite two-part evocation of womanhood – Out Of The Land, by Polly Bolton and Gill McEvoy, and Fridge Magnet Syndrome, by Michael Corbidge.
Directed by Pam Johnson.
Ellesmere College Arts Centre, March 7th and 8th
One acre of landscaped garden originally designed by Chelsea Flower Show gold medal winner Richard Lucas. An avenue of Malus red sentinels leads to mowed pathways in a paddock with fruit trees. The main garden features a woodland area, a variety trees and shrubs, spring bulb plantings, dry stone walled terraces with winding pathways and interesting shady areas and strong autumn colour.
Looking for ideas for fun things to do in the long summer holidays? Try a free family event run by the BogLIFE team in Whixall, near Whitchurch.
We will be going out onto the Fenn’s & Whixall National Nature Reserve for a morning’s bug hunting and pond dipping. Then, back to our reserve base to eat your picnic lunch and to do some art activities inspired by what we’ve seen on the reserve.
