The Pirates Of Penzance
Performance: West Norfolk Gilbert & Sullivan Society

The Pirates Of Penzance

Gilbert & Sullivan as it is meant to be - entertaining, sparkling & uncomplicated fun. We have a young man bound by an overactive sense of duty, plus a gentle pirate king and his hapless band of pirates. Add a beautiful girl, a major-general and an ineffectual bunch of policeman, plus a birthday on 29th February - so what could possibly go wrong! All set to the timeless melodies from the pen of Arthur Sullivan and from the same team who gave you last year's highly acclaimed 'The Sorcerer'.

Director:- Andrew Nicklin Musical Director:- Derek Oldfield

Lisa Smith Paper Works
Exhibition:

Lisa Smith Paper Works

Lisa Smith's work explores the juxtaposition created through the use of colour and form. By taking found paper and applying a unique rolling system, the paper is regenerated into a new life and form.
The making process organically manipulates the layering of paper, determining colour, shape and light - leaving a sense of tranquility and the possibility of a new understanding.

Lisa Smith, born in King’s Lynn, studied for her BA and MA in Fine Art at UEL London, lives and works in Basildon and is currently the artist in residence at Wat Tyler Country Park.
