Sounds and Sweet Airs – What can music express with John Hurst 

Thursday 14th September – 7.00pm – 9.00pm    

Joni Mitchell’s famous song ‘Both Sides Now’ asks a series of questions and responds with a series of doubts.  In this brief presentation we will look at musical representations of Joni’s questions – about clouds, about love, about life itself – in a sequence of musical extracts.                                                                         

Fairy Tales – The Grimm truth with Douglas Bence

Thursday 12th October – 7.00pm – 9.00pm

Fascinated by fairy tales. This taster explores the secrets behind fairy tales;  who wrote them and why? We will discuss how these stories helped societies make sense of the world in which they live and how making stories suitable for a modern audience can distort or lose the    original meaning, such as Disney representation of Grimm tales.
