An Evening With Vanessa Whitburn

Come and spend an evening with the longest running editor of any soap opera in the world!  Vanessa Whitburn was Editor of The Archers for 23 years.  She retired in 2013 after a distinguished career in both radio and television drama.  Headline grabbing stories during her time as Editor included Brian Aldridge’s affair with Siobhan, Ed Grundy’s fathering of Emma’s child while she was about to marry his brother Will – the press called this story ‘Who’s the Daddy?’, the imprisonment of Susan Carter for helping her brother escape from a prison van and the death of Nigel Pargetter.

Amen / Omen: Laura Menzies and Jim Carter

Laura Menzies and Jim Carter present a joint exhibition of painting and sculpture concerned with omens and their relationship with transformative processes.

Laura Menzies’ work operates as a personal register of marks formed from constructs of memory, emotion and indirect references to place. Her paintings  suggest a world that we all encounter visually or sensationally, and are imbued with a strong sense of time, depth and ambiguity.
