Calendar

Important: (03-Oct-2019) Over the next few months I will be replacing the calendar system. The current system should remain largely unchanged until I am sure that the replacement is working correctly.

If you’re holding an event in or near Okeford Fitzpaine and would like it to be publicised on the Fippenny News web site send us the details. We’ll also include it in our print edition if space allows and it reaches us in time for our copy deadline.

The Methera Quartet
Nov 17 @ 17:00

With their roots firmly planted in English traditional music, national tours and BBC Radio 3 broadcasts, Methera have established a reputation as a scintillating live act, blazing a trail through the uncharted territory that lies between folk and chamber music.

The Methera Quartet will be playing upstairs in the Mill Room at Springhead. Combining a deep knowledge of traditional music with a wide range of other influences, newly composed pieces sit alongside timeless traditional material; on fiddle, cello and voila, their music is both sophisticated and earthy, ground-breaking and familiar, enchanting and thrilling – chamber folk at its best.

Tickets are £12 for adults, £10 for Friends of Springhead and £10 under 18 and will be available from Artsreach – www.artsreach.co.uk or the Springhead office – 01747 811853.
