Maker in Focus: Will Shakspeare: Shakspeare Glass

We are delighted to exhibit a large selection of Shakspeare Glass this Christmas – from larger sculptures to beautiful vases and festive baubles.

Will Shakspeare is one of the country’s best known glass blowers. He has been featured regularly in the press and on TV including Inside The Factory, Kirstie’s Homemade Home and Kirstie’s Homemade Christmas with Kirstie Allsopp, and in the Telegraph Magazine with David Nicholls. Will says:

“It is interesting to see how a thread of an idea expands into a body of work, and in which direction it takes me. Sometimes I am not happy with where it is going, and at others I am pleased with where it has got to. At present I am in a landscape ‘period’ and enjoying a different way of looking at glass and bringing my inspiration home.”

Will set up Shakspeare Glass over 25 years ago and has supplied many galleries and well-known stores in that time. He has also worked in Central and South America as a consultant in glass production and design.

There will be a talk by Will at the exhibition opening event on Friday 8th November 2019, at 7pm. The opening event is from 6pm to 8pm at the New Ashgate Gallery

Hygge: the art of intimacy and simple acts

Hygge is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment as cosy, charming or special. It requires consciousness, a certain slowness, and the ability to not just be present – but recognise and enjoy the present. Hygge is about an art of creating intimacy. While there’s no one English word to describe hygge, several can be used interchangeably to describe the concept such as cosiness, charm, happiness, contentedness, security, familiarity, comfort, reassurance, kinship, and simplicity.

Our festive Hygge exhibition presents handcrafted work that help us to survive the cold, dark and sameness of the winter time. These objects will celebrate, acknowledge and break up the mundane. With so many cold, dark, days, the simple act of a lighting a candle and enjoying a beautiful cup of coffee could make a huge difference to one’s spirit.

Some of the highlights in the exhibition include Ekta Kaul’s special embroidered Story Maps rooted in narrative, handwoven tapestry by Jeni Ross rich in colour, warm homewares from Judeworks, atmospheric lighting by Amy Cooper and Liz Scrine, beautifully crafted mini houses by Fiona Findley, delightful ceramics by Isobel Higley and ceramic sculpture by Alison Proctor, exploring natural landscape, the sea and coastline.

Cara Dillon – “Upon A Winter’s Night” Christmas Tour

Cara Dillon, possessed of one of the most celebrated folk voices to have come out of Ireland, will be touring her Christmas show “Upon A Winter’s Night” for a forth year running this December (2019). The overwhelming success of previous tours cementing this magical and memorable festive experience as a firm tradition for many years to come.
Cara and her band will once again capture the mystery of Christmas with a collection of songs ancient and modern providing a welcome reminder that the festive season can be about more than just commercialism. A far cry from “Jingle Bells” and “Santa Baby” Cara will be joined by her wonderful band who weave celtic and folksy rhythms alongside reverent and atmospheric carols while Cara holds the darkness at bay with the purity of her voice.

As modest and down to earth as they come, Cara admits to being taken aback by the success of her acclaimed Christmas album “Upon A Winter’s Night” when it reached Number 1 in the Indie Album Charts upon release not once, but twice in 2016. There is another side to Christmas…far away from Bing crooning and Noddy screaming…it’s a place where the story of Jesus’ birth is retold with genuine wonder and celebrated with the dignity, passion and beauty it deserves. Christmas is one of Cara’s passions and her live show and album only go to prove it.

The Ivy Room – Christmas Agogo! Show with Miss Hope Springs

Looking for some Christmas fun? Don’t miss The Ivy Room’s Christmas Cabaret Special. It’s a great vintage Vegas-style festive alternative to a Pantomime. Very funny and extremely Christmassy. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen at the Club before!

‘Tragi-comic genius’ Julian Clary

‘The Rolls Royce of drag acts’ British Theatre

‘A sparkling show filled with festive songs so finely sculpted you’d be forgiven for thinking they’d long-since entered the classic Christmas songbook’ Gscene Magazine

Miss Hope Springs’ 1971 Granada TV Special Christmas Agogo! is to this day considered an unaired classic.

Once the toast of Las Vegas (now down on her luck and highly medicated), live at the piano ‘recovering showgirl’ Miss Hope Springs rummages under her Christmas tree to unpack a glittering array of all original self-penned festive songs from her acclaimed repertoire. You’ll hear toe show-stopping show tunes, witty comedy numbers and haunting ballads, interspersed with scandalous stories from her ‘Ritz to the pits life’ in LA Paris and erm …Dungeness. Hope sprinkles a fine frosting of vintage Vegas glitz as she takes you on this trip down her, by now, somewhat potholed ‘mammary lane’. You’ll hear numbers such as Santa is a Woman, the heartbreaking Paper Snow, hysterical Christmas Calypso, riotous Bagels and many more.

‘An exquisite performer, clever songs, great piano playing and fun lyrics’ Croydon Citizen

‘A rich vein of comedy…Witty and intelligent’ The Stage

_____________________________________________________________________________

Show Time: Doors open at 7.45 pm. Show: 8.30 pm – 10.30 pm
Running Time: 90 minutes. Not recommended for under 16’s

Tables & Seating

All reservations/bookings are guaranteed a seat. Seating will be in a cabaret-style format with small tables, or in a theatre-style in rows. Group bookings of 6 or more will be seated together wherever possible.

New Beginners Tai Chi and Qigong class at Hale Institute Village Hall

A brand new Beginners Tai Chi and Qigong class for people in the Farnham area. This class will cover the foundations of Tai Chi & Qigong, so that correct technique is learnt. Contact us to reserve a place in this class and find out why our 20+ classes around North Surrey and Hants are so popular.

The movements covered involve stepping, static postures, bending stretching and twisting the body in lots of different ways. Attended regularly, the class will improve posture, balance, strength, flexibility, confidence, and overall health and wellbeing. Emphasis is placed on feeling how the body feels, noticing tension and releasing it. The emotions are balanced and the mind calmed when we practice slow meditative Tai Chi & Qigong movement
