Moo Man - Special Showing - Wednesday 15th October at 8pm
This film is described as “An extra-ordinary tale of British independent moo-v ie making (or how one farmer and his cows went to Sundance.”
A special screening of the most talked about British
documentary of the year with filmmaker Andy Heathcote and his (two-legged) star Steve Hook.
Described as the “number one movie of the Sundance
2013 Film Festival”, The Moo Man follows a year in the life of Steve Hook and his unruly herd as they battle to keep
their family farm afloat.
Director and cameraman Andy Heathcote took four years to make the movie, most of them spent flat on his stomach in a damp field, trying to keep the shot steady while half a
tonne of dairy cow nibbled at his sleeve.
Andy will be at the screening with Steve to talk about the most challenging film of his career following a screening of The Moo Man at 8pm
This sounds fantastic and not to be missed. BOOK NOW!!
Tickets are £7.50 members, £9.00 non members and the price includes a glass of wine. Numbers are limited to 60 so do please book.
Fretful Federation Mandolin and Guitar Orchestra
A FIRST FOR CROWBOROUGH
A mandolin and guitar orchestra will be performing in Crowborough for the first time on Friday, October 10th.
The Fretful Federation Mandolin Orchestra are a Sussex based group of 25 mandolinists and guitarists who play a wide range of material including exciting contemporary music by living composers, as well as classical and popular pieces and concertos.
This October, they are excited to be playing in Crowborough for the first time with two special guests, local soprano, Maria Porter and flautist, Katherine Rogers. The program is likely to include work by Purcell and Handel as well as some popular tunes in the orchestra’s unique style.
The instrument first became popular in Britain in the 1880s when the rising standard of living of city-dwellers meant that middle class women could break free from repressive social conventions and enjoy leisure pursuits including communal music making. Popularity declined after the First World War and there are now only about 20 in Britain.
The concert takes place at The Crowborough Community Centre on October 10th at 7.30 pm.
Tickets are available from Cross Country Stores, Crowborough, on-line at www.wegottickets.com/event/288558 or on the door.
