Henry Sandon Hall Offers Something For
Everyone this August!
The newly opened Henry Sandon Hall is offering a fun-filled programme of events this August, to coincide with the annual Worcester Festival.
Henry Sandon Hall, an exciting new arts venue run by Worcester Live Charitable Trust on Worcester’s famous Royal Porcelain Works site, was officially opened last month, with a busy opening weekend of activities. The flexible space, which can seat up to 140 people or can be cleared of chairs completely, will feature a diverse programme of events, including film, talks, live music, family and children’s events, exhibitions, and more, but before the full programme begins in September, there will be an array of special treats to coincide with the Worcester Festival this August, with something to tempt everyone along to see what the new venue has to offer.
A spokesperson said: “There will be family treats in the form of children’s ‘Magical Making’ craft workshops, fantastical storytelling and puppetry with ‘The Yarn Spinner’, and a musical treat for all the family with local violinist Shulah Oliver in her brand new family show; A Carnival of Music & Ferdinand the Bull. There’ll be drama too, with a performance of the Worcester Repertory Company’s one-woman show, Where Is Mrs Christie? The Mystery of Agatha Christie’s Eleven Lost Days, which recently received a 4* review in The Stage. Not only that, there’ll be music in the form of live concerts and a fantastic Festival Ceilidh with the foot-stomping Orchard Band. For guitar aficionados, Kit Holmes will be performing with Al Greenwood, and if you prefer brass to string then the Worcester Horn Day is for you; a day-long celebration of the French Horn with something to interest players of all ages and abilities.”
That’s not all that the new venue will have to offer though. Later in the year there’ll be Pop-In Auctions, Poetry Open Mic Nights, weekly film showings in partnership with the University of Worcester, a fascinating range of talks on topics ranging from local history and gardening to music, wine, the arts and more, plus exhibitions, demonstrations and craft fairs.
Henry Sandon Hall really does offer something for everyone. Find out more about the upcoming events at www.worcesterlive.co.uk
