Oundle Cinema dOCs+ series present
Between the Folds
Wednesday, 21st November, at 7:30pm
Fletton House, Oundle
Fletton Way, Glapthorn Road, PE8 4JA
Tickets: £8 or £20 for all three dOCs+ series screenings
Director: Vanessa Gould
Although Origami may seem to be an unlikely medium for understanding and explaining the world, fine artists and theoretical scientists are abandoning more conventional career paths to forge lives as modern-day paper folders.
Between the Folds chronicles ten of their stories, opening with three of the world's foremost origami artists - a former sculptor in France, a scientist who walked away from a physics career, and an artisanal papermaker working with the material which he makes from scratch. Folding a simple blank, uncut paper square emerges as a resounding metaphor for the creative potential for transformation in all of us.
‘Probably the first documentary I've ever watched that I hoped would never end.’ George Heymont, The Huffington Post
TICKETS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE ON THE DOOR ON THE NIGHT!
Music in Special Places presents
The FB Pocket Orchestra
Blues, Ragtime, Hot Jazz, Songs and Dances from long ago
Saturday, 24 November, 7.00pm
All Saints and Saint James Church
Hall Yard, Kings Cliffe PE8 6XQ
£15 / £12.50 concessions; £4 u18
Working backwards from the 1930s, the FB Pocket
Orchestra explores repertoire that formed the embryo of
what is now known as popular music.
The members originally began playing together simply as
an exercise in exploring heritage repertoire, taking on a few
informal performances and recording dates as schedules
allowed. The FBPO became an ‘official’ project in the spring
of 2012 and released its first album in October.
The orchestra presents a contemporary slant on popular
acoustic music from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.
“Atmospheric, yet vibrant, this charming collection of songs
will make you wish you had been born some 100 years ago.
The style, glamour and ‘fabulousness’ of this era is captured
beautifully on the album.” Claire Anderson, Jazz FM

Conductor Paul Hilliam
Violin Diego Vassallo
Borodin Overture - 'Prince Igor'
Brahms Violin Concerto
Tchaikovsky Symphony No.2 'Little Russian'
Diego Vassallo is the second soloist we are looking forward to working with again, this time in the Violin Concerto by Brahms, written in 1878 and dedicated to his friend the violinist Joseph Joachim. Born in Birmingham in 1993, Diego Vassallo began to play music aged 7. He frequently plays in many chamber music and orchestral ensembles, and as a soloist he has performed in several cities in both Argentina and the UK.
Folk-inspired music features in Tchaikovsky’s Second Symphony known as the ‘Little Russian’, which was well received at its first performance and has been popular ever since.
Our first Oundle concert of the season gets off to a rousing start with Borodin’s Overture ‘Prince Igor’.
UPDATE: ROAD RESTRICTIONS ON THE DAY
Please note this concert coincides with Oundle's Christmas Market in the centre of the town, therefore parking will be more difficult than usual. You are strongly advised to allow more time to park and walk to the church.

God Rest Ye Merry
Sunday, 2nd December 2018
3pm - 4:30pm
St Mary's & All Saints Church, Fotheringhay
Tickets: £10 to include refreshment (tea, coffee, cake etc.)
An entertainment for people of 12 years and over.
Fourth year of the presentation of “God Rest Ye Merry” comes to the beautiful setting of Fotheringhay church.
Frumenty is composed of four traditional musicians and storytellers who cast an eye over many facets of the festive season.
Here are new arrangements of traditional music, original songs by the players, modern parodies and spoken word from nationally-known and local writers.
With its blend of the sacred and secular, reflective or humorous items, there will be something here to represent the “true meaning of Christmas” to all folk.
Oundle Festival of Literature present
Very Heath Robinson
Wednesday, 5th December, at 19:45
St Peter's Church, Oundle
North Street, PE8 4AL
This book takes a nostalgic look back to the imaginative world of William Heath Robinson, one of the few artists to have given his name to the English language. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the expression Heath Robinson is used to describe ‘any absurdly ingenious and impracticable device’. Very Heath Robinson is full of quirky contraptions for lighting cigars, making coffee, extinguishing candles and generally making everyday life easy. You can even mow the lawn in comfort thanks to the super deluxe Ransomes’ motor mower, complete with wireless, drinks cabinet and tiffin table.
A dozen collections of Heath Robinson’s work have been published over the last 80 years, starting in his lifetime, but most have been compilations of pictures with minimal text. Very Heath Robinson is the first to explain the technical and social background out of which the pictures grew and to weave art and history into a connected story.
Adam Hart-Davis is the perfect person to set the artist’s mechanical fantasies in context, to tell the stories of rapid technological and social change that lay behind Heath Robinson’s idiosyncratic brand of satire and to laugh along with the jokes. He has even built his own Heath Robinson-style machine.
Oundle & District Choral Society presents

We hail the start of the Christmas season with Handel’s superb oratorio, Messiah, performing the first part, which contains many of the most familiar and well-loved choruses and arias from the work.
We are combining the work with a selection of Advent and Christmas carols performed by the chorus and a number of virtuoso works from our experienced soloists.
Our intention is to sing our way into Christmas and we hope that you will be able to join us in this celebration of wonderful music.
