Voice and Volumes - Swadlincote
THE October meeting welcomed Graham Nutt, who entertained the group with his ‘Cold dust Cabaret’ - stories of travelling fairs, circuses, and theatre artistes over the past century or more, supported with fantastic old photographs some by Edwin Lawrence.
He pictured the old fairgrounds and the Hollands Fairs and Holloways travelling theatre were very well known.
The group expect to see Graham again soon.
The next meeting will be on November 6, when members look forward to meeting Danny Wells, who will be going to give his talk on Florence Nightingale.
This could be very interesting, not only to hear about her well known achievements in the Crimea, but to get the background about her life in general and contributions to nursing.
The group will meet in the Magic Attic reading room, adjacent to Sharpe’s Pottery in West Street, Swadlincote at 2pm. Entry costs £2.
