MARLBOROUGH & DISTRICT EMBROIDERERS GUILD

Next meeting:  Monday, 7 January 2019 doors open 1.30pm

at Kennet Valley Hall, Lockeridge: 

 

"1,000 years of weft and warp"

a talk by David Birks of Trowbridge Museum

All are welcome and if you have any queries please contact 01672 861658. 

Further details visit our website: http://www.marlboroughembroiderers.org

 

Report:  Early each December we enjoy a “bring and share” buffet lunch to start the festivities of Christmas. 

After the meal we have a surprise speaker and this year Lynda Warren entertained us with her talk entitled, “He’s Behind You”!
Lynda’s background is in the theatre  and she still works full time giving educational talks about the theatre, film and television. 

She explained that pantomime first started in ancient Greece then came to Italy and France arriving in the UK in the 16th century.
Modern pantomime has become very popular with television actors and pop stars taking the leading roles in

traditional fairy tale stories – Dick Whittington, Jack & the Beanstalk, Aladdin etc. 

A performance of singing, dancing, slapstick and jokes has entertained all ages of a family for years. 

There is always a background of good versus evil with the good fairy and a villain.

Audience participation is encouraged and the finale is usually a 'happy ever after' wedding.
