The Plough Arts centre

9-11 Fore Street
Great Torrington, Devon EX38 8HQ

phone: 01805 624624

PRICE: £18.00

PURCHASE TICKETS ONLINE: click here

website: http://www.theploughartscentre.org.uk/






Though The Plough celebrated 40 years as an arts centre in 2015, the building and the site on which it stands has a long and colourful history.

Originally the town house of a wealthy merchant in the late 1500s the building boasted the work of master craftsmen including wooden panelling, an ornate strapwork plaster ceiling and a fine large iron fireback dated 1618.

From 1750 to 1910 the house became The Plough Inn under licensees William and Judith Waldon. Other licensees included Mary Cock (1830 – 51) Sam and Mary Fry (1860 – 73) The Westlakes (1875 – 81) and Frank Gerrard (1897 – 1910).

The council minutes of 1875 record that “complaints have been made of the bad state of the closets and dung pit behind the Plough premises adjoining Potacre Street. Resolved that notice be given for the daily removal of the contents and the prevention of any nuisance therefrom”

By 1910 The Plough was in a parlous state and ceased to be a public house. The final indignity was a letter from Mr Parnell of The Globe Hotel next door dated July 1911: “Sirs, If you can allow me to put a cow in the Plough premises for a week I will undertake all risks. Resolved: permission granted”

The pub was demolished in 1912 with many of the fine Jacobean panels incorporated into the Council chamber in the town hall and other artefacts housed in the museum.

The building we see today was completed in 1913 as a Drill Hall for the use of the Territorials and Yeomanry. In July 1914 the new Territorial Drill Hall was granted a music and dancing license. By August war had been declared and the hall became the base for the departure of soldiers to the front.

As a base for the Devonshire Regiment and the North Devon Yeomanry the building was uncompromisingly spartan with a shooting range and storage for a large 25 pound field gun. When not being used to train soldiers it was used for badminton, childrens’ parties, grand parades, jumble sales, fancy dress, coffee mornings and dances especially during the second world war when the Americans were based nearby.

The army gave up the lease in 1968 but the Drill Hall continued to be used for Cavalier bonfire dances and Christmas parties, hunt dances and the May Ball.

In 1974 the Town Council sold the lease to T.A.R.A (Torridge Arts and Recreation) and following the efforts of many people including Dr Harry Cramp, Clifford Quicke and John Lane, The Plough Arts Centre opened on 11 April 1975 with a performance by Dame Edith Evans. One of many highlights from the 1970s was a three day visit by The Royal Shakespeare Company in 1978.

From 1992 – 2002 The Plough merged with Beaford Arts and benefited from substantial public and private grants and loans for major refurbishment and alterations to the building. These improvements enhanced the facilities, including modernisation of the theatre/cinema and film projection facilities, a new gallery space, workshop and dance studio, storage facilities, as well as improvements to the bar/café/foyer on the ground floor.

Following a period of uncertainty and a threat of closure, in 2002 The Plough was re-established as a new independent company and charity. The strength of feeling locally plus the huge support and financial commitment from the local community was instrumental in making sure the Plough survived.

Since 2002 the organic growth of The Plough has been strong under the leadership of a new Council of Management, director, loyal members of staff, volunteers and audiences. Public funding has been replaced by new lines of income generated from Business Supporters, fundraising events, individual donations, legacies, gift aid and successful funding bids for arts projects. In 2009 over 65,000 people entered The Plough for all purposes. Turnover, including catering increased from £85,000 in 2001/2 to £460,000 in 2008/9.

The trend of dramatically increased audience numbers, turnover, new revenue streams and arts activities has compensated for the overall decline in public core funding. Today, The Plough has achieved a plateau in terms of the levels of activity possible within the existing building and is looking to expand through partnerships with other organisations and through increased arts outreach provision.

Having achieved over 90% financial self sufficiency, The Plough Arts Centre is proud to have a strong foundation from which it can look forward positively to a dynamic and creative future. Responsive locally and valued across the region, The Plough aims to make a positive impact on the lives of all who come into contact with its arts programme.

Since 1975 (and probably 1575!) many thousands of performers, artists, workshop leaders, speakers and teachers have shared their work at The Plough. Artists of all ages, all artforms, from every continent have visited Great Torrington to entertain and inspire Plough audiences and participants.

2 Spring Street
Chipping Norton OX7 5NL

phone: 01608 642 350

website: http://www.chippingnortontheatre.com

More details to be added when available.



This fabulous building began life as a Salvation Army Citadel, with the first stones, now visible in our auditorium, being laid in 1888. In strange quirk of fate, its designers and engineers were those behind many Victorian Music Halls, leaving it perfectly proportioned for its future theatrical life. It continued for some years as a furniture warehouse, before being discovered by two Royal Shakespeare Company actors, Tamara and John Malcolm in 1968. In 1973, fundraising for the new Theatre began in earnest, and the year was crowned with The Theatre’s first panto, Beauty and the Beast, staged in the town hall. The Theatre began as a true community resource, with residents of Chipping Norton each asked for £1 towards the conversion.

The Theatre was opened in 1975 by Tom Baker, the Dr Who of the time, beginning with a light programme including films and lunchtime Jazz concerts. The cottage adjoining the Citadel was purchased and converted to become the bar and gallery. The Theatre continued to grow and flourish, expanding its programme and reputation, and purchasing, in 1990, the building in Goddards Lane that now serves as green room, offices and rehearsal room.

1996 saw a major refurbishment, funded in part by the Arts Council, improving many aspects of the building, particularly the stage and wing space. Graham Rust, one of Europe’s finest muralists, was commissioned to produce the murals now visible in the bar. Not long after receiving a well deserved MBE for her services to The Theatre, Tamara Malcolm passed on the mantle of Artistic Director to Caroline Sharman.

The Theatre has had a strong reputation over the years for producing its own creative work, and notable performances of Yerma, Don Giovanni, Taste and Huck live in the minds of our audiences. These stand alongside perhaps our greatest claim to fame, the world-renowned traditional family pantomime, which draws on a long history of traditional values, top-notch creative teams, and original, daring twists to make it an irreplaceable part of countless family Christmases.

In 2008, John Terry took over from Caroline as Artistic Director, overseeing a period of further growth and professionalization, and collecting on behalf of The Theatre the 2009/10 TMA Stage Newspaper Award for Outstanding Contribution to Regional Theatre. The Theatre now stands as a rare example of a successful rural receiving and producing theatre, funded and supported almost entirely by local people, local councils and local businesses.

Gordon Giltrap Sharing Day

Castle Arts Centre

off Fountain Lane
Frodsham, Cheshire WA6 6SE

PRICE: £100.00

website: http://www.castleparkarts.co.uk/

ALL ATTENDEES for Sharing Day must pre-book.

Cost of the day is £100 (which includes a pass for the evening concert).

I'm delighted to welcome old friends and new to what hopefully will be a fun and informative day sharing my thoughts with you, once again at the charming Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham, Cheshire. This will be another return visit for me and one I'm looking forward to very much.

My chosen piece for the day is A Christmas Carol. Tab for the chosen piece will be emailed to you when you sign up.

My special guest for the afternoon is that outstanding guitarist/teacher/ composer Martin Pleass.

I'm hoping he will be bringing that amazing Ralph Bown harp guitar along and demonstrate his skills on this monster of an instrument. Martin also has some impressive connections with world famous legends and I look forward to hearing about them on the day!

During the remainder of the day I shall be on hand to ask any questions about technique, equipment, composition, performance, you name it!

The evening will see me perform an intimate concert in the upstairs gallery. The seating is limited so those who just want to attend the concert should book early. Those attending the workshop will have free admission to the evening concert. (Concert tickets for partners etc should be booked separately direct with the venue)

Opening the evening concert for me will be the superb builder of bespoke electric guitars Michael Gough of MG GUITARS. He creates the most beautiful instruments from the best materials available. Apart from being a gifted builder Michael is also a very fine guitarist and composer. He's a lovely chap and good friend.


Should attendees require accommodation the Arts Centre recommends The Old Hall Hotel on Main Street, Frodsham.

IMPORTANT: Bookings for Sharing Day can ONLY be made via Sue Holton email: ggiltrap+sharingday@gmail.com and not direct from the venue. Please contact Sue with any questions or for further information about my Sharing Days.

The Victorian building with its unique clock tower was originally the stable block for the adjacent mansion house. In 1986 these outbuildings were converted into the arts centre providing exhibition and workshop spaces, a cafe and craft units.

The traditional origins of the building are reflected in the magnificent wrought iron gates which were commissioned for the entrance to the Arts Centre.

Visitors to Castle Park Arts Centre can experience a lively programme of exhibitions, arts activities and enjoy the wonderful Victorian buildings and grounds.

The Arts Centre has 4 galleries, 2 craft rooms, 7 courtyard craft units, a coffee shop and garden space with disabled access. There is a regular programme of changing exhibitions and arts and crafts classes for adults and children. The Centre is also used by numerous clubs and societies.

"Oxford has always been a city close to my heart, having played there on a number of occasions.
Sharing the stage with such great players like Nick Hooper and Judith Henderson will be a joy".

Nick Hooper
Best known for his two film scores for the Harry Potter series, Nick has continued on his creative path using his imaginative and musical skills, which held him in such good stead in the film world, to both perform his own music, and to write novels. Early in his teens, Nick became an accomplished guitarist, going on to study at the Royal College of Music. He then went on to develop a career as a film composer picking up many awards along the way, including two BAFTAs, an Ivor Novello, and a Grammy nomination. Nick has returned to his guitar, working on projects with various musicians, including the legendary guitarist Gordon Giltrap. Nick’s solo guitar album 6 Strings was released by Angel Air Records in June 2018.

Judith Hooper
Judith has been playing the violin since the age of 6. Having grown up with a classical training in music, a diploma in music therapy at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama led her to develop her long-suppressed inclination towards improvisation and folk music. She went on to enjoy a close association with Cecilia Macfarlane and Oxford Youth Dance, creating the music for several dance pieces, including ‘Journey of Ten Knights’ (Oxford Playhouse) and ‘Cityscape’ (Pegasus Theatre). With Nick Hooper she formed the fiddle and guitar duo Henderson:Hooper in 2001, and the duo released their first full-length CD in 2018, entitled Pete’s Trees. Nick and Judith also perform with the singer/bass player Susanna Starling in their trio The Boot Band.

The Stables
is situated in a beautiful rural setting in Wavendon, just to the south east of Milton Keynes and a short drive from central Milton Keynes.

Wavendon Allmusic Plan Ltd (WAP), a registered charity, was founded in 1969 by the world-renowned jazz musicians Dame Cleo Laine and Sir John Dankworth, with an aim to provide a centre of musical activity which would break down barriers between music genres and introduce music to as many people as possible regardless of age or social background.

The vision was realised with the development of The Stables Theatre, in some outbuildings at their home, as a venue for concerts and education activities. In October 2000, the new Stables Theatre opened its doors on a 398 seat auditorium which now presents over 200 concerts and over 200 education sessions each year.

You now have an exciting opportunity created by Gordon Giltrap MBE, to help you to learn how to improve your guitar playing. Pete Townshend recently said on ‘The Who’s’ official website that some of the best guitar music for him in 2018 came from Gordon Giltrap. This is indeed true recognition from a guitar legend in a year where Gordon has also been honoured with an MBE for services to music.

3) Take part in a weekend residential programme with coaching throughout from Gordon and Will McNicol
