THE ARTS SOCIETY : 250 YEARS OF THE ROYAL ACADEMY

   New Milton Memorial Centre.  Whitefield Road.  New Milton.  BH25 6DE  

   10.00 a.m. for 10.30 a.m. start

   New Members and visitors welcome

In 2018 the Royal Academy celebrates 250 years since its foundation. Marking that anniversary, this lecture looks at some of the artists involved at the very beginning, including the first President, Sir Joshua Reynolds, and brings us right up to date, to a Royal Academy that numbers contemporary artists such as Tracey Emin and Cornelia Parker among its members. Along the way we look at some of the colourful characters connected with the RA, from staunch supporters to artistic rebels, and some of the controversies the institution has been involved in, as well as the Summer Exhibition, always central to its role.

NUMBER 60 TO THE SOMME

   Ballard School Performing Arts Centre.  Fernhill Lane.  New Milton  

   https://newforestplayers.com/   

In October, The New Forest Players will be honouring the hundredth anniversary of The Armistice and all those who served at home and on the front with a production of Number 60 to the Somme, a completely new Great War story with wonderful Edwardian music hall songs by Greg Mosse & Carol Godsmark.

It is a funny, inventive and touching play-with-songs in two acts – a completely fresh angle on the 1914-18 conflict.

The Great War was an extraordinary mobilisation of men, women, animals and machines. Over 1500 B-Type buses – open-topped, steel-wheeled, solid & dependable – were despatched to serve in Belgium and France. The London bus drivers went too and their vehicles became troop transports, mobile hospitals, pigeon lofts – they were put to any and every perilous use on the rough roads and tracks.

Number 60 to the Somme is the story of one such bus and one such driver, Jim Swift, together with his family and friends on the home front and his comrades & enemies in the front line.  It illustrates the comedy, tragedy and astonishing fortitude of this terrible conflict and while entertaining us, serves to honour all those who suffered or gave their lives for peace and freedom – whether at home or at war.
