SlindonLife : Special 10th Anniversary Annual General Meeting and party  at the Coronation Hall

SlindonLife was formed 10 years ago, so our next AGM marks an important anniversary. For those who don’t know SlindonLife we help organise, co-ordinate and support all manner of village activities ranging from village parties, the web-site and round robin emails, Flix in the Sticks, summer swimming etc etc.

Do come along as we are planning to make this years AGM a special occasion.  After the important, but short formal business there will be a special entertainment;

Life in Slindon – past and present   Things change, but mostly stay the same!

This is a celebration of all that’s best about living in Slindon, Madehurst & Eartham, and has been compiled and will be performed by Paula Tinker, Gareth Williams, Mike Imms and features choice selections from The History Group archive.

It will be light, fun and intriuging and will include;

  • Readings & recital
  • Music & song
  • Pictures & history

It’s a bit of party as well, so there will be drinks and nibbles.  Not to be missed  All residents are welcome.

The talented recorder quartet, Palisander, will be performing at St. Mary’s Church in April.  Their programme is called ‘Journey to the New World’ and contains music from Tallis to Vivaldi to Vaughan Williams, performed on a variety of Renaissance and Baroque recorders. The concert is funded by the Brighton Early Music Festival promoter fund.  Venue: St Mary’s Church, Slindon

Palisander is delighted to have been selected for the prestigious St John’s Smith Square Young Artists’ scheme 2016-2017. Last year, the group was selected for Brighton Early Music Festival’s ‘Early Music Live!’ scheme; ‘the leading training and apprenticeship scheme for young early music ensembles’. Winners of the June Emerson Launchpad Prize for chamber groups, the group has performed at the Royal Greenwich International Early Music Festival, Newbury Spring Festival and Handel and Hendrix in London. Palisander’s international performances include the Open Recorder Days festival, Amsterdam and the Tel Aviv International Early Music Seminar. The quartet has performed at contemporary music venues, on occasions with dancers and actors and at the Wallace Collection, for London Fashion Week. Palisander’s new children’s show, Dr Dee’s Daughter and the Philosopher’s Stone, is a collaboration with theatre and puppetry company Rust and Stardust. The project will tour in 2017, with support from the Arts Council England.
