1786; George III is King of England. He has a loving wife, a nation of subjects, a loyal parliament, and the world kneels at his feet.... but the king’s behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic. From the hand of national treasure Alan Bennett, author of The History Boys and Talking Heads, The Madness of George III is a brilliant exploration of duty and kingship, an epic play about the ties that bind us together as family, as a society and as a nation. Gripping drama, dangerous politics and irreverent comedy collide in a rollercoaster ride where the health of the nation is at the mercy of the mental health of one man. Produced by Wilde Enterprises in association with South Hill Park, Eastbourne Theatres and Anvil Arts; Wilde Enterprises is a collaboration between Blackeyed Theatre, Icarus Theatre Collective and Original Theatre Company.

Visual Arts Stains of Light - Donald Wilkinson Saturday 11 September - Saturday 16 October GALLERY ONE & TWO Donald Wilkinson’s work is landscape based, about the experience of actually being in a place. He spends a great deal of time working on location, often returning to the same piece of landscape again and again over a long period of time, watching the changes that the weather and the season have on a familiar landscape. The exhibition will include recent and new work on paper, made on the shoreline in Kintyre and in the landscape of Northern England.

Sat 23 October - Sat 20 November

Kelly’s Pier and Other Fragments - Brian Waters

GALLERY ONE

Sat 23 October - Sat 20 November

Fresh from the English Heritage exhibition Extraordinary Measures, Scalesdale is a fantasy miniature city which grew over a five month period from a tiny cluster of houses to an urban sprawl, driven by public vote. Belsay Hall visitors were posed questions that related closely to town planning issues and the consequences that result from our decision making.

GALLERY TWO

Scalesdale

Scalesdale is designed by Newcastle based Mosedale Gillatt architects and made by Stocksfield based Pete Young (Thingmaker). Scalesdale was one of eight commissions funded by English Heritage, Arts Council England, One North East and the Northern Rock Foundation for Extraordinary Measures at Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens.

26

See associated Creative Writing workshop on P22.

Brian Waters has lived and worked in the Tyne Valley for forty six years. His painting and photography is often concerned with intimate details of landscape and with fragments of structural decay. The main body of the exhibition is themed on Kelly’s Pier, built in 1756 and situated on Loch Etive, a sea loch, from which, at one time, cannon balls manufactured in the nearby Taynuilt foundry were supplied to Nelson’s fleet.
