|Rock Diabetes Festival|
11th October 2014
We are a group of people trying to raise awareness for Type 1 diabetes and in particular in children through the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund (JDRF). One of our parents has a daughter, Cerys 12, who suddenly developed this terrible condition when she was 9 years old and has to manage her sugar levels with insulin injections for the rest of her life unless a cure can be found.
On the 11th October 2014, we are holding the hugely popular charity event called Lets Rock Diabetes Festival at The Trowbridge Civic Centre. As you can probably guess it is a rock concert, but featuring local bands as well as some top names such as Diamond Head. We are also holding a prize draw with all proceeds going to the charity.

|Fascinating Shakespeare Workshop Set to Inspire Actors this October|
|For one day only, Cue-Script Shakespeare is running a brand new acting workshop which promises to unravel the scripts of the world’s most famous playwright. On Saturday 11th October, Paul Doust will be showing actors how to bring these plays to life as never before - letting participants see Shakespeare in a completely new light.|
Shakespeare is the pinnacle of the theatre world, with actors dreaming of playing Hamlet, Rosalind, Macbeth and Cleopatra. This one day workshop will help actors and drama students get to grips with the complex language and action of the plays. It will be held at Little Mill Oast in Marden, Kent. Little Mill is a unique timber building and the perfect place to replicate an Elizabethan playhouse.
Shakespeare’s plays remain as popular as ever, drawing audiences from all backgrounds and cultures. The roles attract actors of the highest quality. For instance, Benedict Cumberbatch is the latest to take on the title role in The Barbican’s Hamlet, which has already sold out its 12 week run a year in advance of the 2015 production. More than 400 years after they were written, Shakespeare’s plays are still pulling in the audiences - with new generations of theatre professionals bringing fresh creativity and insight to scripts.
Paul Doust is in the vanguard of this exciting movement.
|Paul, founder of Cue-Script Shakespeare, said, “Shakespeare’s plays sometimes carry the reputation of being confusing and daunting. People think you have to be very academic to read or perform them. This really isn’t the case – so I’ve created this one day workshop to dissolve that misconception. Having worked with a whole range of people, I know that absolutely anyone interested in acting can easily get to grips with Shakespeare – if only they are shown how. All it takes is an informed approach, and the use of practical, tried and tested methods based 100% on the way Shakespeare’s actors would have prepared his plays in the 16th century.|
“I’ll be teaching a set of simple but remarkably powerful techniques for unlocking Shakespeare. Central to this approach is the use of cue-scripts – a key method that Elizabethan actors used when preparing plays for performance. Cue-scripts are not the whole play – rather they are a “part” written out, with just a couple of “cue” words to link each speech together. Working with cue-scripts has a remarkable impact on how the play is revealed in rehearsal. In the evening of the workshop, once we’ve worked the cue-script magic, participants will apply what they’ve learnt in a public performance of on-the-book scenes and extracts. This performance is especially exciting because of the unique, timber-built venue of Little Mill Oast – replicating closely, as it does, the very particular conditions of an Elizabethan stage and auditorium.”
Paul Doust is a trained actor, director and playwright. He is also a properly qualified adult tutor (holding the Certificate of Training Practice, awarded by the chartered institute of Personnel & Development). Paul trained at Guildhall School of Music and Drama - the London home of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Having been taught by the very best Shakespearian experts, Paul is now passing on his knowledge and enthusiasm through Cue-Script Shakespeare.
The one-day workshop will be held at Little Mill Oast, Marden, Kent on 11th October. It is suitable for anyone wanting to improve their skills in understanding and performing Shakespeare. For a free example cue-script and to book your place, email email@example.com.

|THE OSILIGI MAASAI WARRIORS|
CROMER PARISH CHURCH, Cromer, Norfolk
Contact: Victoria Clements
Sunday 12th October at 3pm
The Osiligi Maasai Warrior Troupe will perform in concert at Cromer Parish Church their first performance in the town, as part of their UK tour
The Troupe are stunning performers. Every performance they give sees them receive rapturous applause, leaving behind unforgettable memories for their audience.This is their eleventh year of touring the UK, which has seen them perform so outstandingly at many prestigious venues,including the Cathedrals of Ely (twice), Salisbury and Exeter, and have performed before Royalty on three occasions.
The tours help the members of the Troupe raise money for their families and their community, which is situated some 30 miles south of Nairobi, where life is tough. Over the years, the tours, and the charity (www.osiligi.org ) which they brought about, have seen the lives of the Troupe, and the families around them, move from abject poverty, where, for example, water came from a stagnant pond some five miles away, whereas they now have fresh clean water in two points in their community.The Troupe’s success and the spin-off to the charity have subsequently seen the unhealthy kerosene, to light their homes, now replaced by solar lighting, the building of a new church, and,most wonderfully, a new school. The latter now has 130 pupils, all sponsored by UK supporters
The Troupe’s performance is a sensation to watch, with all ages, from five to ninety five, being enthralled and excited by their natural rhythm and song, and their jumping, for which they are famous, is wondrous to watch ! All performances, which tell the story of their lives, are fully narrated, and audience participation a part of the show. Tickets priced £9 adults, and £1 children) are available from North Norfolk Information Centre, Louden Road Cromer or K’s Hardware 37 Church Street Cromer
A unique,once in a lifetime experience ! An unforgettable event, not to be missed! -And photography is permitted both during and after the event. - The troupe are quite open to this.
Any questions please do ask. Hope to see you there!!
