Friends of Fotheringhay Church present


Annual Piano Recital


Mary Stuart – A legacy of strong women


Recital by Valentin Schiedermair


Saturday 31st August, at 7.30pm


Fotheringhay Church,  PE8 5 HZ


Tickets: advance £10.00 / on the door £12.50


Valentin is a London-based German pianist who engages with his audience and draws on all his exceptional background and experience to take them on a musical journey. His objective is simple - to share the joy and excitement of music with his audience.  


Of interest to him at Fotheringhay is that his ancestor was Friedrich Schiller, who wrote the play in 1800, recently made into a film about the imaginary meeting between Elizabeth 1st and Mary Queen of Scots.

Tickets: £10 Adults. Free for pupils. One free ticket for each performing pupil


Helena Jiřikovská – violin

Adéla Štajnochrová – violin

Martin Stupka – viola

Lukáš Polák – violoncello


The Škampa Quartet is among the very finest of an outstanding group of current Czech string quartets that has represented their country in major Concert Halls around the world for twenty-five years. Through their mentors, the legendary Smetana Quartet, they trace their roots to the earliest quartets - such as the Bohemian Quartet - in a land described in 18th century as the Conservatoire of Europe and that remains, to this day, the very cradle of European chamber Music.


Education has long been an important facet of their work, and one that they find particularly rewarding. they teach in many places around the world but particularly at the Royal Academy of Music in London where they were appointed Visitng Professors of Chamber Music in 2001.


As they focus on their Wigmore Hall concert, we are fortunate to be hosting The Škampa Quartet to work with our chamber musicians ahead of our tour to Prague in February. After their 5:30pm concert, the quartet will coach our ensembles on Brahms Sextet, Clarinet Quintet and a movement from Mozar't Oboe Quartet, before more pupils unite with Ďvořák’s Serenade for Strings, first movement in the evening.

Oscar-nominated documentary. Bing Liu started filming fellow skateboarders as a teenager in his Rust Belt home town, and kept his camera running for the next twelve years. This is a complex account of three young men as they struggle to become adults, deal with their past, and face up to their responsibilities. Contains strong language.

Cloud River


Friday, 20th September


19:00 - 20:30


The Old Barn at Wadenhoe

Mill Lane, PE8 5XD


Tickets £10 to include light supper


Tickets are  non-allocated


Tables seat  4 - 6 and a couple of tables seat two. If you purchase 4 tickets you might appreciate that if tables of 4 are fully booked then another couple may be added to your table.


Cloud River is a book of lyrical landscape poetry set in the Cambridgeshire Fens.The startling originality of the book stems from its mission to revise and overturn these impressions.


Through an examination of lines (on fields, maps, the sky and the page), it slowly but powerfully reveals the intrinsic interest, peculiarity and dynamism of the Fens and in its flowing music, exemplifies how a confrontation with level lands, straight rivers and big skies can result in a balancing of spirit and a fresh appreciation of England’s lowest and newest landscape.


“Charles Bennett writes so beautifully: a poet who really seems to have his own kingdom, with its quiet moments- of sun, fruit and weather - which he catches with a peculiar loveliness.” Alison Brackenbury


Before establishing himself as an academic Charles Bennett was the Creative Director of Ledbury Poetry Festival and has acted as writer-in-residence for Wicken Fen. Additionally, his work with choral composer Bob Chilcott has seen him hailed as a memorable and mesmerising librettist. He is currently Associate Professor of Poetry at the University of Northampton where he leads the BA in Creative Writing.


A light supper is included, and you may take your own drinks or purchase hot or soft drinks at the venue.

Programme


Walton                        Spitfire Prelude and Fugue

Elgar                        Sea Pictures

Vaughan Williams        Symphony No. 5


The work of the Air Ambulance is recognised in our first concert with music conjuring images of Air, Sea and Land. Walton’s score for the film The First of the Few soon found its way into the concert hall, transformed into his Spitfire Prelude and Fugue. In contrast to this stirring opening, Elgar’s beautiful Sea Pictures set a series of poems by different authors, including one by his wife Alice. Completing this programme is Vaughan Williams’ 5th Symphony, dedicated to Sibelius, another nationalist composer. Of all Vaughan Williams’ symphonies this is perhaps the most indefinably ‘English’.


There will be a retiring collection for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance.


Reasonable access to the chapel and separate WC facilities nearby.  Please note that whilst the attendance of wheelchair users at the concert is welcomed, it would be helpful to have advance notice of their coming so suitable places can be prepared in advance to better cater for them.

7.30pm FISHERMAN’S FRIENDS (12A)


Stahl Theatre, Oundle

West Street, PE8 4EJ


Director: Chris Foggin                                        

Duration: 1h 52m


Starring: Daniel Mays, Tuppence Middleton, James Purefoy


Daniel Mays (Line of Duty) is a Londoner well and truly out of his depth in a Cornish fishing village where he meets ten doughty fishermen singing sea shanties, “the pop songs of 1752”.  Based on how the real life Fisherman’s Friends from Port Isaac found fame, this is a lovely mixture of comedy and drama guaranteed to leave you feeling good.


‘This gentle, sweet-natured comedy has warmth and a certain X factor of likability, helped by big-hearted performances from a cast including Daniel Mays and Tuppence Middleton.’ Mike Cahill, Guardian

We join the Archbishop, Terry and a host of other colourful characters as they travel around the world. Along the way, the Archbishop meets the Pope in Ghana, has a photo call with koalas, and meets the crowd via an ‘archmobile’ in Canada. He and his staff experience extreme weather conditions as well as some rather unusual local customs, entertainment and souvenir gifts, and an array of unfamiliar food and drink.


Whether navigating huge crowds or temperamental sound systems or dealing with the fact that their party has arrived at the wrong place or on the wrong day, the Archbishop remains affable and good natured, even when, despite Terry’s and the team’s best efforts, events descend into – in Runcie’s own words – ‘a bit of a shambles’. Terry’s engaging narrative also sheds light on the history of Lambeth Palace and the way in which the role of Archbishop of Canterbury has evolved over the years.


Terry Waite CBE was Advisor to the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1980 to 1992.
