‘Generation Exodus’: a research seminar
in Room B225, Bournemouth House BH1 3LH
With Professor Otto Hutter, former Regius Professor of Physiology at the University of Glasgow.
“In 1938, when I was fortunate to escape from Hitler’s Vienna by Kindertransport, I took with me a list of the names and addresses of my fellow classmates in the Jewish Grammar School (Gymnasium) that I attended. We were then forty gregarious 14-year olds. For a while, I kept in touch with a few special friends, but in time we lost contact. Many years later, by which time my surviving classmates were scattered all over the world, I picked up the threads and through networking collected their biographies. These are tales mostly of triumph over adversity, of fortitude, good fortune and achievement; but sadly also of calamity and perdition: altogether, a tableau of 20th Century history as experienced by a cohort of young refugees.”
For more information on Professor Otto Hutter’s remarkable escape as a child refugee rescued by the Kindertransport Movement, please see this blog.

Last of the darling buds: Steeple Ashton Open Gardens

Every other year, the pretty Wiltshire village of Steeple Ashton opens up its many lovely gardens to all and sundry in aid of its church preservation trust.  Built with money from the 15th century cloth trade, the classical late Perpendicular church is much larger than might be expected for the size of the village and needs every penny of the £30,000 that has been raised in this way since the first event in 1999. The village is an attractive mix of architectural styles, including more than its fair share of listed properties, around a village green with a market cross and ancient overnight lock-up for miscreants on their way to the local assizes.  It also boasts a community owned and operated village shop.
Up to 15 gardens will take part this year, varying in size from several acres to more modest plots. A draw to join a conducted climb to the top of the 93ft tower of St Mary’s Church will be repeated this year. Three lucky winners and their partners will be rewarded with a glass of champagne and a spectacular view of the village and the surrounding countryside stretching out to the Salisbury plain. There will also be well stocked plant stalls and cream teas on the village green, a children’s competition and Open Gardens Pimms at the village pub, the Longs Arms. The 2013 event attracted over 800 people. Tickets cost £5 and all children will, as usual, be free.
Inquiries to John Aeberhard: aeberhard@btinternet.com, 01380 870602.

'You matter more than you think!'
at Christ Church, Woking
A women’s conference exploring who we are and the difference we can make to those around us, organised by Bible Reading Fellowship and Woman Alive magazine.
Keynote speaker: Jennifer Rees Larcombe.
Far too many of us go through life covered with a vague feeling of worthlessness. It traps us in the mediocre and prevents us from becoming the woman God destined us to be. So we’ll be exploring how vastly significant we actually are, and what an influence we could have – if only we realised it!
We’ll also be joined by Catherine Butcher, Sharon Eason, Ali Herbert, Sue Mills, Melinda Wells and Amy Boucher Pye.
Worship led by Sue Mills, plus Jennifer and her team from Beauty from Ashes will be offering an opportunity for one to one prayer ministry throughout the day.
Come and discover:

  • God’s invitation to live life to the max
  • How to be a world changer
  • New adventures in prayer
  • Why and how to practice forgiveness

Booking details:
Tickets cost just £25. Book five places and get one free!

Steeple Ashton’s Independence Day Frolic

A combined church organ concert and picnic in the Manor gardens on American Independence Day, in aid of the village’s church preservation trust.
Peter King, Bath Abbey organist acclaimed as “a virtuoso of world class standing” (BBC Radio 3 CD Review), will showcase American organ music during a concert on the recently re-built Bryceson & Ellis organ in St Mary’s Church at 6.30pm, followed by an open house, bring-your-own picnic at the adjacent 17th century Manor and its featured gardens.
Music by American composers from John Philip Sousa to Scott Joplin, from Dan Locklair to Arthur Foote, David N Johnson and Dudley Buck, will share the programme with 19th century European composers such as Brahms and Liszt contemporary with the time the St Mary’s organ was built. Included will be tunes played at the funeral of President Reagan (Locklair’s Rubrics) as well as the wedding of President Nixon’s daughter (Johnson’s Trumpet Tune). Sousa’s Washington Post and Liberty Bell will ring out alongside Joplin’s Rag, The Entertainer and Harmony Hall Waltz, together with variations on Buck’s tear-jerker, Home Sweet Home. The audience will be able to see the organist displayed on a large screen in the church.
This will be a return visit to Steeple Ashton for Peter King, who gave a recital in the church early last year when he expressed his delight in the quality of sound from the organ, one of the finest in Wiltshire.
Tickets for the combined organ concert (centre aisles) and entry to the Manor gardens, with a welcoming glass of fizz and, as befitting the American theme, apple pie and cream to close the evening, cost £20 each. Tickets for the concert alone (side aisles) are offered at £10 each.
Picnic tables and chairs will be available on a first-come basis and wine for sale will also be available. Picnic set up from 5.30pm onwards.

A feast of glorious music! The Festival runs from and comprises an eclectic mix of concerts and choral services in six Dorset churches, a Folk night in Wimborne and two Rambles near Kingston Lacy.
The opening concert, on Thursday, 13 August, will be in St Martin’s Church, Bryanston. This beautiful church, with views of the river Stour and open countryside is the perfect setting for English Serenade. The concert includes Vaughan Williams’ masterpiece ‘The Lark Ascending’, voted the most popular piece of classical music in the 2014 Classic FM’s Hall of Fame. The soloist will be Christina Scott, Head of Strings at Bryanston School. The three choral items in the concert – Vaughan Williams’ Benedicite, David Everett’s ‘Requiem: Light Everlasting’ and the world premiere of ‘Praise and Thanksgiving’ – will be sung by the Festival’s three choirs. Concert is followed by Compline.
On Friday 14th, the Festival will be in Blandford’s amazing Georgian Parish Church for a concert by The Brunel String Quartet, who will perform an enticing programme of eclectic music by Haydn, Warlock, Karl Jenkins and Vaughan Williams. The highlight promises to be Finzi’s ‘By Footpath and Stile’ in which baritone Gareth Jones joins the quartet for a rare performance of this Thomas Hardy song cycle.
The final concert on Saturday, 15 August, will be in the fantastic surroundings of Wimborne Minster. This concert of beautiful music will include Vivaldi’s ‘The Four Seasons’ and two works by Handel: ‘Zadok the Priest’ and the ‘Dettingen Te Deum’. The soloist in the Vivaldi will be Fiona McKinley, Head of Strings at Canford School.
In addition, Kingston Lacy Church will be the venue for two afternoon Young Artists Recitals and the churches in Wimborne St Giles and Child Okeford will host two Eucharists. There will also be a Festival Choral Evensong in Wimborne Minster on Sunday 16 August, followed by a relaxed evening of Folk music performed by talented local musicians in the nearby White Hart pub.
