Acting Workshops

<p>Join Paper Doll Productions for a series of lively and fun acting workshops ideal for professional and amateur actors and anyone looking to apply to drama school.<br /> Monday's workshop will be an introduction to Improvisation.<br /> On Tuesday bring along a modern monologue to work on.<br /> On Wednesday bring a Jacobean verse monologue to explore.<br /> Thursday will see a workshop based around the play "Bunny" by Jack Thorne.<br />

Psychesoma presents Ebony

<p>Join us for an experimental afternoon of art, dance, song, film and the written word. In creating Ebony, PsycheSoma started with the question 'What is poetry?' Does it have to be the written word or can it be music, dance and art? Does transforming a poem into other art forms mean it is no longer a poem?<br /> Poetry has many layers and when created, transformed and performed by those who truly love it, it can touch not only your mind but also your heart and soul.<br />


<p>For the duration of the festival the High Road will become an inside/outside art gallery showing a variety of art utilising shop windows, local spaces, and eatery walls kindly donated for the weekend by local businesses. In this exciting artist led event returning for a second year, look out for unexpected additions to shop window displays on your daily travels, or follow the art trail on a journey of discovery. A map of the full trail will be available at participating venues.</p>

Festival Choral Evensong

<p>In Streatham's oldest parish church - a place of worship for over a thousand years - St Leonard's Church Choir sings a Festival Choral Evensong including works by some of the greatest British composers of sacred music: Parry, Britten and Vaughan Williams. Come and recharge your spiritual batteries through this beautiful service of words and music in the tranquillity of this ancient building: all are welcome.</p>

Where do novelists get their ideas from?

<p>The most common question we’re asked – how on earth does the whole, detailed, complex world of character, location, plot and subplot, arrive in your mind? Prizewinning local author, Bobbie Darbyshire, will reveal how this happens, from initial spark to realisation on the page. Her three gripping novels are ‘Oz’, ‘Love, Revenge &amp; Buttered Scones’ and ‘Truth Games’. Find her on Facebook, follow her @BobbieDar, check out her Amazon page</p>
