Didsbury Arts Festival 2012

We are pleased to be hosting a number of events for the Didsbury Arts Festival again this year. The Festival takes place from Thursday to Sunday 27-30 September. It promises to be an excellent festival and details can found here.

Three events will take place at Didsbury Baptist Church:

Flamenco de la Vuelta
£8 / £7 Concessions
‘Flamenco de la Vuelta’ is a brand new collaboration of UK based flamenco artists. Featuring music by singer Chico Pere and guitarist Glenn Sharp, with the dance of Gloria Lopez Castejon. ‘Flamenco de la Vuelta’ was originally a short film made by director, Guillermo Ibanez, featuring these artists and is now a live performance created for the Didsbury Arts Festival 2012.

Saturday 29 September, 7.30pm
Border Fiction
Comma Press presents three exciting authors, whose short story collections cross personal and political borders. Jane Rogers’ collection, Hitting Trees with Sticks, ranges from Uganda to Australia to the West Indies. Zoe Lambert’s The War Tour paints a picture of the world’s conflict zones, giving voice to the silenced casualties. Michele Green’s forthcoming Jebel Marra, explores the complexities of the ongoing war in Darfur.

Sunday 30 September, 7.30pm
Frambuesa Tango Quintet
£5 (in aid of St Ann’s Hospice)
Frambuesas are musicians from the Halle orchestra and friends. They will perform classic Argentinian tangos, concert tangos by Piazzolla and be joined by Didsbury dancer Belinda Gough, star of the Manchester tango scene, and her partner. A rare chance to experience the Tango and support St Ann’s Hospice.

We look forward to seeing you at any or all of these events!
