Exhibition Textiles in Transition
Saturday 27 April  

Gallery Exhibition

Dorothy Russell

Textiles in Transition

The art Dorothy exhibits is usually produced by painting, printing, piecing, quilting and embellishing textiles. Her work as a textile artist has gained her recognition and awards. Some of this work can be seen on the Portfolio pages of her website. As a Quilt artist, she takes inspiration from many sources, including the natural world, politics, news and history.

Her work includes traditional and contemporary approaches, but always at its heart is a fascination with the materials themselves. Silk particularly attracts her with its lustrous quality and glowing acceptance of paints and dyes. She cannot imagine working in any other medium – there is so much yet to discover. for more information please click here.

Fel arfer, wrth gynhyrchu gwaith i’w arddangos, bydd Dorothy yn peintio, printio, cwiltio ac addurno tecstiliau. Mae wedi ennill cydnabyddiaeth a gwobrau am ei gwaith fel artist tecstiliau. Gellir gweld rhai darnau o’i gwaith ar y tudalennau ‘Portffolio’ ar ei gwefan. Fel artist cwiltiau, caiff ei hysbrydoli gan nifer o ffynonellau, gan gynnwys y byd naturiol, gwleidyddiaeth, y newyddion a hanes.

Mae’n defnyddio dulliau traddodiadol a chyfoes, ond ei diddordeb ysol yn y deunyddiau eu hunain sy’n ganolog i’w gwaith. Mae sidan, yn arbennig, yn ei denu oherwydd ei ansawdd moethus a’r modd y mae’n ymateb i baent a llifynnau. Ni all ddychmygu gweithio mewn unrhyw gyfrwng arall – mae cymaint i’w ddarganfod eto.

You are invited to bring something related to the theme, to read or sing for the culminating session of the day..

Fiona Owen has had five collections of poetry published, the latest being The Green Gate (Cinnamon Press) She teaches creative writing, literature and other arts/humanities subjects for the Open University, and writes and records songs with Gorwel Owen, the latest CD being Releasing Birds.

Broadcast RSC Live: Titus Andronicus
Wednesday 9 August7pm

Titus Andronicus

This is the third in the RSC’s Rome Season which showcases four of Shakespeare’s most political and bloody plays, set in and around ancient Rome.

Described as Shakespeare’s bloodiest play, Titus Andronicus sees the decay of Rome reach its most violent depths.  Titus (David Troughton) is a ruler exhausted by war and leaves Rome in disarray, with rape, cannibalism and brutality filling the moral void at the heart of a corrupt society. Directed by Blanche McIntyre. Designed by Robert Innes Hopkins. All four plays in this season share a great creative team. This, together with a reconfiguration of the stage, will bring an added intimacy to what will be a brutal, bloody and thrilling programme.

John Le Carré

An Evening with George Smiley  (12A)

Broadcast live from London’s Royal Festival Hall, join us for a celebration of one of the world’s greatest writers as he shares the secrets behind the creation of his most beloved character. From his extraordinary Cold War novels – such as The Spy who Came in from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – to his powerful description s of the War on Terror in The Night Manager, A Most Wanted Man and A Delicate Truth, the writing of John le Carré has come to define the last half century.

In a rare public appearance and one-off event, the author reads from his new novel, A Legacy of Spies, which sees the return of his most iconic Cold War characters, as their past comes back to claim them in the present. With a unique question and answer session, this is an unmissable opportunity to experience one of the foremost chroniclers of our age, direct and in his own words. In conversation le Carré discusses the full breadth of his career spanning five decades, and reflects on the continuing story of his most famous creation, the tubby bespectacled spy, George Smiley.

David Gilmour Live At Pompeii

 45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows, part of his year-long tour in support of his No.1 album ‘Rattle That Lock’. The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheatre, and, for two nights only, the 2,600 strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD.

‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ is an audio-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs, but paramount above all is the astonishing music and stellar performances from an all-star band. The show includes songs from throughout David's career, as well as many Pink Floyd classics, including 'One Of These Days', the only song that was also performed at the band’s 1971 show.

Both concerts also saw very special performances of 'The Great Gig In The Sky' from 'The Dark Side Of The Moon', which David rarely plays as a solo artist. This concert performance film includes highlights from both shows, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder . ‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ shows an artist at the top of his artistic game, performing incredible material with his world-class band, in a unique setting, on one very special occasion.

Songs include the title tracks of his two most recent No. 1 solo albums: Rattle That Lock and On An Island, as well as other solo and Pink Floyd classics, including Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb.
