Mail Art Exhibition “Connection is Made…”

by Tamara Jelaca

The idea of Mail Art Exhibition came to me for two main reasons. The first one because I always liked the idea of exchanging art and connecting with other artists. The second reason was absolutely perfect format of mail art that I was considering as ideal to make a connection between artists in Droitwich Spa and a twin town Voiron in France. That was only the beginning.

Paintings by Penny Dykes in Park’s Café

The exhibition of local artist Penny Dykes is on during October in Park’s café, Victoria Square. Penny exhibits 15 new watercolours and pastels, among them a lovely watercolours “My Kitchen Vase”, “Old Field Shelter, Elmbridge” and “The Flock”.

Penny Dykes began to paint on her retirement in 2003. Her inspiration comes from her interests and daily life. As a keen gardener, wildlife enthusiast, poultry and sheep keeper, she loves to tranfer flowers, animals and landscapes into her artworks.

“The Witches of Eastwick” at Norbury Theatre & Cinema

The Witches from Eastwick

The Norbury Theatre has a new premiere in October – “The Witches of Eastwick”. The play is based on the adaptation by John Dempsey (lyrics and book) and Dana P. Rowe (music), directed by Eric Schaeffer, and produced by Cameron Mackintosh.

The Norbury Theatre presents the black comedy musical “The Witches of Eastwick”. Based on the novel by John Updike it tells the story of a small town which is home to three extraordinary women. Alex, Jane and Sukie are the loose threads of this tight-knit little town and each of them wishes desperately for some excitement in their lives. As if by magic, their wishes are granted when the devilishly handsome Darryl Van Horne comes to the town and turns their worlds upside down. But they should really be careful of what they wish for, it might just come true…

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd. on behalf of Music Theatre International and Cameron Mackintosh Ltd. 

Call for accoustic/classical guitarists

DAN meeting in October was very much busy with vivid discussions about past, present and future DAN activities. However, this time we had a 10-minute-long musical break which was very welcomed. Mike Johns gave us a short introduction in guitar playing techniques and he performed a couple of songs from his “Spa Songs” CD.
