With the Beast of the East in retreat at last and hopefully a thaw on it's way, its a good time to plan ahead for warmer evenings of candlelight, music and wine!

 'One World One Flute" is a programme of world music performed and devised  by Nicola Woodward, a popular and experienced musician with an extensive CV that includes recitals at the Wigmore Hall, The Purcell Rooms, Highgrove, Buckingham Palace and our barns (with Opera Project)!!

Nicola will be playing a variety of instruments that include  the piccolo, alto and bamboo flute, South American quena and Irish whistles.  She says:

'This programme is full of the music I love best – that influenced by music of the people.  I would love to share this music and celebrate the differences and more often the similarities of folk music from around the world'.

We are also delighted that Rachel Goode (soprano) from the Royal Welsh College, whose scholarship was part-funded by our Opera Gala last July, will  join Nicola for the performance of Irish folk songs.

Come and join us on May 12th 7.30pm for a magical candle-lit evening and enjoy a glass of wine from the pop-up bar.
Tickets £15 or £10 for under 18yrs  To read more and book Tickets
Finally, two more dates for your diaries:
Friday July 6th - a Champagne and Opera Gala evening  -  in aid of part-funding a shcolarship for another student at The Royal Welsh College
Saturday October 20th - Pop-up Opera's unique version of Bizet's 'Carmen' - no doubt an evening of tragedy and fun combined!
We are excited by all these events and hope you will be too.  Meanwhile we hope  you are staying warm and having fun and we look forward to seeing you soon.  Hopefully we will have thawed out by then!
