European Union Chamber Orchestra

Soloist Crispian Steele-Perkins



Director Hans-Peter Hofmann and 18 musicians from across Europe stop off in Holyhead on their international tour.

A fantastic afternoon and evening is in prospect with the return of the brilliant European Union Chamber Orchestra, and the trumpet legend Crispian Steele-Perkins.
Most certainly a concert not to be missed as it will sound stunning in the fine acoustic of the Centre.  It promises to be a lovely programme of superb music as well as the opportunity to either take part in, or watch a masterclass with Cripian Steele-Perkins, sit in on an open rehearsal, and finally the concert itself.

Programme:
Purcell  - Trumpet Overture & Suite Indian Queen
Handel - Arrival of the Queen of Sheba
Haydn - Trumpet Concerto
Pwyll Ap Siôn - The Dancer and the Marvellous Mind
Haydn - Symphony No.59 “Fire”

Drama Nursing Lives
Thursday 19 March 2.30 pm

Vamos Theatre presents
Nursing Lives












Last year Vamos theatre came with their production FInding Joy, and it was really an amazing performance - both moving and amusing in turns.  And all very easy to follow.  So it is with keen anticipation that we await the arrival of Nursing Lives.




When Flo, a feisty seventy-something, learns that the hospital she trained at during the Second World War is being demolished, she decides to take one last look – and stop the bulldozers in their tracks.
Her illicit visit becomes a personal celebration of friendship, courage, adventure and romance. But is what Flo remembers really the truth, or is history ready to be re-written?
Nursing Lives is a love story set in the early 1980s of Thatcher’s Britain, and takes us back to the hard-working, heart-breaking, swing-dancing world of the UK’s wartime hospitals.

Like all Vamos Theatre shows, Nursing Lives is wordless, telling its story through physical communication, a strong visual design and an original soundtrack. This is a humorous and poignant production from one of the best of the UK’s full mask theatre companies

Suitable for age 12+
