Car fanatic and Editorial Director of Bauer Media's digital motoring portfolio (includes CAR magazine) Tim Pollard covers all you need to know about the take up of EVs and hybrid cars in the UK, charging infrastructure, costs, reliability, and their overall 'footprint' - and answers questions.
This event is one of a series called the OWL talks - part of the Oundle Waste Less project organised by Transition Oundle - which aim to promote discussions about current thinking around the shift towards lower carbon and 'eco' lifestyles. Other topics covered include waste and recycling, food and farming, renewable energy, with more events in the pipeline for 2020.
The OWL project is funded through the National Lottery and East Northamptonshire Resource Management Funds and the OWL talks are sponsored by Nene Living. The event is free to attend. Doors & bar open at 7pm but please reserve your seat in advance.
Oundle Music School Department in association with BBC Radio Northampton and Oundle International Festival presents
Music in Unexpected Places
Friday, 4th October
Tickets: £8 general / free for all pupils
This proved to be one of our most popular concerts when we first aired such an idea three years ago. Now, in conjunction with BBC Radio Northampton and the Oundle Interantional Festival, we're back for another evening of surprises and venues hitherto, perhaps, not even heard of!
We offer a stunning evening as the audience are split into smaller groups and taken in and around Oundle School's buildings and beyond: short historical facts about the buildings are then followed by diverse ensembles and solos from our talented musicians. Might we be able to take you into the unopened new sports Centre, or perform beside the swimming poool, perhaps a House dining room, or the old Tuck Shop of yesteryear? An engaging line-up is assured.
Please make any disability known to facilitate our planning: firstname.lastname@example.org
Two Faces of Fotheringhay
English music in the 1480s and 1580s
Saturday, 5th October 2019
7pm - 9:30pm
St Mary's and All Saints Church, Fotheringhay
Main Street, PE8 5HZ
Tickets: £10 general
£12.50 on the door
Almost exactly a century separates the violent deaths of Richard III – England’s most controversial king, slain in battle in 1485 – and Mary Queen of Scots, who was executed in 1587. There is a strange symmetry between the fates of Richard and Mary. He was born in Fotheringhay Castle in Northamptonshire. She was beheaded there.
Between the lives and the deaths of the two doomed monarchs there were enormous changes in politics, culture, society and religion. Music too.
In separate projects and recordings, The York Waits – who play the wind and stringed instruments of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance – have explored the music of both the later 15th and 16th centuries. Now they bring the strands together and present a programme that highlights the contrasts – and some continuities – between the musical soundscapes of Plantagenet and Elizabethan England, with an excursion to the Scotland of the Stuarts.
In both periods, there were important influences and importations from the Continent, although the 15th century was a period when English composers also made a great impact throughout Europe.
Songs of 15th and 16th century England and Europe are sung by Deborah Catterall, and the Waits play instruments that include shawms and sackbuts, recorders, harp, organ, rebec, fiddle, flute, bagpipes, curtal and hurdy gurdy.
