Surrey Philharmonic Orchestra Concert is a sell-out The Surrey Philharmonic Orchestra played to a packed house on 1st March in Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall. Their concert, featuring solo violinist Oscar Perks at the top of his form, was well received. Concert-goers were enthusiastic about his performance of the Violin Concerto by Brahms. There was also praise for the orchestra’s performance, under conductor Nicholas Smith, of Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony. Orchestra Chairman Susan Bixley said, “We are delighted that things went so well at what is a new venue for us. As far as we know it is the first time a symphony orchestra has given a concert in Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall. The hall management accommodated us very well, and the people of Ashtead gave us terrific support.”

Dorking Concertgoers presented London Philharmonic Orchestra On 11th January the Dorking Concertgoers presented a concert by the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the Dorking Halls. The programme began with the ballet music from Verdi’s Macbeth. Verdi composed this additional music especially for the Paris production of his opera, and it makes a most effective concert piece. The performance was full of life, evoking the supernatural spirits dancing with abandon around the witches’ cauldron! The orchestra was joined by the American violinist, Phillipe Quint. Phillip played a lovely Stradivarius violin from Dvořák’s violin concerto. Not as well known as the composer’s cello concerto, this is nevertheless a fine piece, offering a range of opportunities for the soloist. I particularly enjoyed Quint’s playing in the tender and poetic slow movement, and his brilliance in the finale, based on Czech dance rhythms. In the second half the orchestra, conducted by Damian Lorio, played Tchaikovsky’s first symphony. Evocatively subtitled ‘Winter Daydreams’, this early work remained a favourite piece for Tchaikovsky throughout his life, even though the writing of it caused him considerable strain. The music already sounds characteristic of later Tchaikovsky, with yearning melodies, impassioned strings and dramatic brass. The LPO gave it a thoroughly convincing American violinist, Phillipe Quint performance throughout. The wintry slow movement and the gentle waltz that appears in the middle of the scherzo were both beautifully done. Towards the close of the finale, the long series of descending scales on the violins created a gradually accumulating sense of tension that was finely controlled and which led to a most exciting conclusion. While there was a respectable audience for the concert – about 400 people – it certainly deserved a completely full house. The people of Dorking are extremely lucky to enjoy orchestral music of this quality, and it is much to be hoped that with the continuing withdrawal of any financial support from Mole Valley Council, the Concertgoers are able to continue to promote such excellent concerts. Larger audiences would obviously help! Conductor, Damian Lorio

This concert was supported by a grant from Mole Valley Arts Forum. article by Ian Codd

Polesden Lacey Shakespeare are delighted to announce that actor, comedian and satirist John Bird has generously offered his support as a Patron.

During the 1970s, he featured in The Collected Broadcasts of Idi Amin based on Alan Coren’s anti-Idi Punch columns. In 1975, The Melting Pot: a sitcom written by Spike Milligan and Neil Shand, was cancelled by the BBC after just one episode had been broadcast. In 1979 he appeared in Dennis Potter’s Blue Remembered Hills. Hilarious roles followed in the BBC situation comedy Yes, Prime Minister broadcast in 1988 and then as a newspaper editor in the political drama To Play the King in 1993. Other credits include: Help!, Jabberwocky, The Seven PerCent Solution and Yellow Pages, the 1990 - 1992 television detective series El C.I.D. set in Spain, Professor Plum in the fourth series of Cluedo, John Fuller-Carp, a barrister, in the BBC radio and television sitcom, Chambers, with Stephen Fry in Absolute Power and guest appearances in Jonathan Creek and The Three Gamblers. We probably know and love him best for his collaborations with the late John Fortune and Rory Bremner in Bremner, Bird and Fortune. We remember with great glee, and not a little irony, the famous series of sketches with John Fortune, The Long Johns, where one interviewed the other

John Bird, actor, comedian and satirist

in the character of figures such as politicians, government consultants or businessman. In one of these sketches (The Last Laugh), which was recorded for The South Bank Show and broadcast on 14 October 2007, they were credited with being one of the first to predict the seriousness of the financial crisis of 2007–2010. He has just filmed another appearance in Jonathan Creek, to be broadcast later this year (aired this March). Joining other patrons, actor Jean Boht and BBC journalist and newsreader, Nicholas Owen, John is delighted to be involved, explaining “I am very attached to Polesden Lacey and visit it often, so it will be a great pleasure to be associated with it, and of course with Shakespeare. I look forward to being a patron with great anticipation.” Polesden Lacey Shakespeare, an independent registered charity, will present Pop Up Shakespeare: short scenes round the gardens, accompanied by original music on June 21st and 28th This year’s main production, directed by Shaun Hughes, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, at the Open Air Theatre at Polesden Lacey is on July 12th, 13th, 19th and 20th. See www.polesdenlaceyshakespeare.co.uk article by Franki Gray

Pop Up Shakespeare Short memorable scenes from Shakespeare, and a ‘junior’ version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream performed in various settings around the grounds of Polesden Lacey.

on the lawns, amongst the trees and near the house. Some scenes will be in the original form and some will be specially adapted to make them more child-friendly.

Pop Up Shakespeare, presented in collaboration with The Cat’s Grin Theatre Company, was very well received by audiences on two Saturdays in June 2013 and there are plans for performances in the summer of 2014 on 21st and 28th June.

The scenes will be repeated during the afternoon, so that you can make your own itinerary, with plenty of time to walk, picnic, play games, admire the views or visit the house.

At the end of the day you will have been re-acquainted with old favourites Turn the corner and there will be actors or simply entertained by scenes which performing one of Shakespeare’s gems have moved people for 400 years.

Born in Basford, Nottingham,and educated at High Pavement Grammar School, Nottingham, John briefly joined the Socialist Party of Great Britain, while still at school. He was educated at King’s College, Cambridge (where he was to meet John Fortune), he became well known during the television satire boom of the 1960s, appearing in That Was The Week That Was, (a title coined by him). He was intended by Ned Sherrin for David Frost’s role in the series, but was committed elsewhere. He also appeared in the television programmes Not So Much a Programme, More a Way of Life, A Very Peculiar Practice and My Father Knew Lloyd George, as well as in The Secret Policeman’s Other Ball.


Free art to take home and enjoy The aim of Free Art Friday is to connect people through the medium of art, encouraging residents to explore their local environment whilst celebrating the diverse arts communities across Mole Valley.

Each artist will be featured in the arts section of the Mole Valley District Council website for a month. There will also be a series of clues on social media pages inviting members of the public to explore their surroundings and local area.

Once a month a piece of art work will be created by a Mole Valley artist and placed in a secret location for a member of the community to find and take away for free.

If you are an artist that would like to be featured and involved in Free Art Friday then contact lesley.spiers@molevalley.gov.uk for more information.

The ‘Free Art Friday’ artist of March is… Meike Laurenson BA (Hons) Constructed Textiles

Art in the widest sense is my passion. I didn’t have much paper to draw on as I grew up but heard others sing and started a little performing group in our street. I decided to leave home and country to get away. I came across pottery classes, achieved my Cert.Ed with Ceramics Mains while performing in a couple of plays which we took to London Uni. I taught for twenty years, with an emphasis on Arts and Drama and moved out of London.

Congratulations to James Dark for finding February’s artwork at The Surrey Performing Arts Library. The ‘Free Art Friday’ artist of February was… Celia Di Massimo MA (Ed.)

March 2014 issue 1

Celia is a member of Surrey Hills Artists, Ashtead Art Group, Breech Lane Pastels and Surrey Open Studios.

Early retirement led to self-sufficiency on my smallholding. I started spinning the fleece of my sheep, passed on the craft and joined Reigate Arts Foundation course as the first mature student. This led on to a degree at WSCAD and membership of the Feltmakers Association. Felting being the most ancient textile craft, I was fascinated to find that one can create wearables from woollen fibres. As exhibition officer and later editor of IFA’s quarterly journal, opportunities arose to teach the craft and exhibit my millinery style hats. Hats relate to upside bowls in a way and remind me of my mother, smiling while tipping her head this way and that, as she put on her hat before going out. article by Meike To find out more about Meike you can visit her website – www.meikelaurenson.co.uk

Dorking Chamber Orchestra’s concerts DCO’s last concert, ‘Bookham Baroque’, on 8th February featured Joseph McHardy conducting music by Telemann, Gluck, Mozart, Vivaldi and Haydn, mirroring much of their inaugural concert 25 years ago. Clare Kennington, DCO’s leader and the newest of DCO’s soloists, was stunning in Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 (the ‘Turkish’). David Jewel, one of DCO’s founder members, thrilled us with his performance of Vivaldi’s ‘Goldfinch’ flute concerto.

Family Concert Date: Saturday 10th May – 3.00 pm Venue: St Paul’s Church, Dorking Conductor: Adrian Bawtree

Choirs: St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Dorking Tavistock & Summerhill, Haywards Heath St Andrew’s School, Mannings Heath

Adrian Bawtree

In their next concert DCO is very excited about performing with three young choirs. Adrian Bawtree, better known to many of our audiences as a conductor, is composing ‘1914’ for DCO – a beautiful setting of moving poetry about people’s changing perspectives following the start of the First World War.
