Flore Arts Events
Flore Arts Events is an informal organisation run by a volunteer group of Flore residents with a common interest in promoting the arts. We have hosted a range of musical events from early music to jazz – not to mention poetry evenings and a silent movie night. Proceeds from the events go to charitable causes.
We have now donated more than £20,000 to local charities.
OUR NEXT EVENTS
We now have three exciting events coming up in 2022. These are
(1) Illyria perform “Peter Pan”: escape to Neverland with Peter and Wendy! We’re very excited to be bringing outdoor theatre to Flore, courtesy of Illyria, an award-winning open air theatre company. They will be putting on “Peter Pan” in what promises to be an afternoon of lively, high quality, family entertainment.
Sunday June 26th (3pm; gates open 2pm). The owners of The Grange in Flore High St have very kindly agreed to host this event. It’s a rare opportunity to see fabulous theatre in beautiful extensive gardens in the heart of the village. You will need to bring something to sit on and your own refreshments.
Please note that on this occasion tickets are only available online, directly from Illyria’s agents. Please follow this link to book: Peter Pan at The Grange or click on the poster below.
Tickets are priced at £16.00 for adults and £8.00 for children aged 5-18 (plus a small booking fee).
(2) Jazz in the garden: we’re now taking bookings for an old favourite, this time with a new band, New Orleans Heat. Once again our hosts will be the generous owners of Rock Springs in Sutton St. If you haven’t been before you can expect a programme of foot-tapping jazz and ragtime favourites in a relaxed garden setting. You’ll also have the opportunity to buy teas, cakes, wine and beer (sorry, cash only). Just bring something to sit on (and perhaps your dancing shoes).
Sunday July 17th 2.30pm: Rock Springs, Sutton St, Flore. Doors open 1.30pm. Tickets £10 (£5 Under 18s). Call Rosemary Read (between 9am and 8pm) on 01327 341026.
(3) Budapest Café Orchestra: Sat October 22nd (evening): All Saints Church. A return for another group who thrilled us in 2018 with varied and lively music inspired by the Eastern European gypsy tradition. We haven’t yet opened the box office for this one… watch this space!
