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. Some of you may remember that the last date here had to be postponed because of my short spell in hospital.

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)

My special guest on the evening concert will be Michael Gough a fine guitar player and electric guitar builder whose workshop is adjacent to the Centre itself so do drop in and say hello whilst browsing his amazing hand built guitars along with a fine selection of acoustic instruments.


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.




Castle Park Arts Centre is set amongst beautiful floral gardens, parkland and woodland walks in the historic market town of Frodsham.

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.

Castle Park Arts Centre is run as a charitable trust which is managed and manned by volunteers.

The Countess of Huntingdon's Hall was built as a chapel in 1773 by the very formidable Selina, Countess of Huntingdon. She was the Founder of the Calvinistic/Methodist group known as the Countess of Huntingdon' Connexion. The Chapel prospered until the second half of this century when congregations declined. The last service was held here in 1976.

By this time the building was in a deplorable state of repair, and there was a move to demolish it. However, a determined group of Worcester people fought to prevent this happening and, after ten years during which nearly £1 million was raised, the unique features of the chapel were repaired and restored to what you see today.

Many of the original pews have been retained with the addition of cushion, a number of which have needlework covers made by Worcestershire W.I. members. The pulpit was the centrepoint of the Chapel, and it's occupant was visible from all seats in the building. Nowadays the focus is on the stage, several feet lower, which is why there are seats in the gallery known to us as "listening seats". Graceful curved staircases lead up to the pulpit, which is flanked by two splendid eagle lecterns. The original communion rail is still in place beneath the stage. The organ is a very fine one, built by John Nicholson of Worcester in 1840.

Our beautiful Hall, the only one of its kind in the country, is a Grade II listed building. The poet John Betjeman visited it, and described it as being "unique and irreplaceable...a Georgian gem
