Event:Art Exhibition: Making A Mark
Details: Caroline Bartlett, Flea Cooke, Anita Ford, Alfred Huckett, Esther Wragg and Steve Wragg

This jewel of an art centre located near the centre of Hertford is hosting an exhibition not to be missed. Six artists representing various disciplines from watercolour to stitched textiles via printmaking and mixed media have come together to express their individual approaches to mark making. These are artists who show both nationally and internationally and are proud to come together to present a visual feast of an artistic conversation.

See the pleated and stitched textiles of Caroline Bartlett and the cool fragile textiles of Flea Cooke. The watercolours of Alfred Huckett describe music transformed into paint whilst Anita Ford’s monoprints and paperworks describe struggles in life overcome. Esther Wragg presents her impressions of landscape and ancient culture with both wall pieces and free standing work, and Steve Wragg his colourful visual comment

Saturday 17 June One night only

Event:Susan Calman: The Calman Before the Storm
Details: Its Susan Calmans tenth year in comedy and shes back with a brand new show.
You may have seen or heard her on shows like QI, HIGNFY, News Quiz, Listomania or Mock the Week, now you have the opportunity to see her in person, life size if you will.
For information, Susan is taller than a borrower but shorter than the average thirteen year old child.

The show?
Well shes ready to create a storm, to set the record straight, to give it to the man (whoever he is).
Incidentally she would also like to be Batman.
Ninety minutes of comedy that you will enjoy if youre over 16, like what she does, and wont be so drunk that she has to throw you out.
Sounds like a terrible personal ad doesnt it?
She also likes fine wines, kittens and walks along the beach.

Seriously. Its going to be epic.
