BOOK FESTIVAL

SAVE THE DATE!


The Flavel is embarking on a brand-new venture: a Book Festival on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 September 2024, in partnership with Browser Books, The Community Bookshop and Dartmouth Library.


Dartmouth has become known, not only as a sailing and tourist destination, but also as a town that holds very successful and enjoyable festivals: the Music Festival, the Food Festival and Dartmouth Royal Regatta.So, we thought a Book Festival would to be a wonderful addition to the busy calendar of events in the town. We have a large number of authors living in the area, and this will be a superb way to showcase their work, and of course, to welcome authors from further afield.


This is an exciting new venture for The Flavel Centre, in partnership with Browser Books, Dartmouth Community Bookshop and Dartmouth Library, and one which we hope will evolve into an annual event.


For the Book Festival, we are planning a range of events, such as speaker sessions, panel discussions, workshops, film, and children’s events. These events will take place in different areas of The Flavel Centre, Dartmouth Library, Browser Books and Dartmouth Community Bookshop, which are all within a concentrated area.


The Flavel Centre’s new patron is John Suchet, the renowned broadcaster, journalist and author, and we are delighted that he is supporting the Book Festival, and will be participating in the event.

We are also delighted that Jo Loosemore, a prolific BBC producer and presenter, will be participating.


We are currently working on the programme, and several authors have expressed an interest across a variety of genres. We will be sending out more detailed information as soon as we are able and look forward to seeing you there.

Beyond The Raging sea (PG)

Extreme athletes Omar Nour and Omar Samra accept the Talisker Atlantic Challenge, a 3,000-mile Atlantic Ocean crossing by rowboat with no assistance, and no stopping. Training and preparing for two years, they commit their adventure to the plight of displaced people crossing the Mediterranean with support from UNHCR and UNDP.

After a slow start and bad winds, sickness, and exhaustion, day 9 dawns in a gale, 600 miles from shore.  A rogue wave flips their boat and both men are in the water. With beacons failing, they wait and pray and struggle, fighting 45-knot winds, and riding 8-meter waves. For 13 hours, Nour and Samra face the same dangers and decisions of the desperate refugees to whom they dedicated their row. In this true-life adventure, survival demands a miracle or two.

Cara Dillon, an extraordinary, multiple award-winning Irish folk singer, and acclaimed musician and producer Sam Lakeman, will captivate listeners once again with their exquisite and enthralling live performance. Every note and word sung with a passion and confidence earned through a life of experience singing traditional songs. Throughout an enviable career which has seen them explore opportunities to tread many different paths – from releasing folk crossover albums on indie label Rough Trade; recording on Disney soundtracks; to collaborations with orchestras and even leading dance DJs – Cara has continuously chosen to firmly plant herself within the landscape of her Irish cultural heritage and that’s something to celebrate.  


Their enduring partnership has ensured they have remained at the very pinnacle of the folk genre for well over two decades and this performance will feature a selection of acoustic songs from previous releases and may also include material from her highly anticipated 2024 release, “Coming Home”, her first in over six years. Within it Cara effortlessly blurs the lines between spoken word and song to stunning effect, exploring profoundly personal memories, her native Co. Derry and the people, places and customs she holds closest to her heart; revealing a newly found freedom to express herself within the tiniest of details and life’s larger mysteries. Join Cara and Sam for an intimate evening full of exceptional music and the genuine warmth they bring to the stage.

DAN WHITEHOUSE ‘A NIGHT OF GLASS’

A NIGHT OF GLASS Dan Whitehouse - A musical journey into the heart of glass in its myriad manifestations


Saturday 14 September 7.30pm

Tickets £20 (includes £1.50 MyFlavel)


Over the past two years, acclaimed singer-songwriter, storyteller Dan Whitehouse has been in a transparently reflective mood with three albums all themed around the physical and metaphorical nature of glass. On The Glass Age, produced by Swedish multi-instrumentalist Gustaf Ljunggren and inspired by keeping in contact with his young son living in Japan, he explored how, in terms of communication,  both positively and negatively, we have become a screen-fixated society  exchanging  virtual emotions with an emoji or a coded text, our smartphones as indispensable an appendage as an opposable thumb.  As the song Campfire succinctly puts it, “When you change the way you look at things/ Watch the things you look at start to change”.


This was followed by Voices From The Cones, an album that approached glass through a  different lens, an Arts Council funded radio ballads styled project commemorating the history and legacy of glassmaking in Stourbridge in the heart of the Midlands, the epicentre of the nation’s  glassmaking industry for over 400 years. A social history song cycle, he drew on both interviews and oral archive material, both playful and poignant, from some 100 former glassworkers who had been the industry’s molten heart. Then came Reflections On The Glass Age, a mirror image of the electronic pulses of the first album  refracted through acoustic reinterpretations, intimately sung and played to distil the sweet melancholia of the material.


Songs and stories from these projects have now been gathered together for ‘A Night Of Glass’, a simple but hypnotic live experience in which, variously behind a piano or on guitar he takes audiences deep into the heart of glass in its myriad manifestations, his expressively nuanced crystalline vocals, a hint of Bowie here, a touch of Cohen there, effortlessly mining a wealth of emotions and ideas. This is where the light gets in.


George Bernard Shaw said “You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul” a  testament to Dan’s intoxicating songwriting, consummate musicianship and quiet, unassuming charisma  with songs like Rainbows Never End, Thin Blue Line, the anthemic New Love and the infectious, crowd-friendly Work, A Night Of Glass is the melting point where art transforms.

Exercise Tiger: Concert

EXERCISE TIGER 80TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT


With the Celtic Male Ensemble, Donna Marie Broomfield (soprano), and soloists from BRNC volunteer band


This concert marks the 80th anniversary of Exercise Tiger, the ill-fated rehearsal at Slapton Sands by American forces practising for the D-Day landings on Utah Beach, Normandy, in June 1944.


The first half of the concert focuses on remembrance and gratitude and includes Ensemble songs such as ‘Tell My Father’, ‘For the Fallen’ and ‘Mansions of the Lord’, the ‘Last Post’ played on the balcony and soprano solos from the era, such as ‘Berkeley Square’ and ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’.


The second half focuses on the freedom which those who fought and died in D-Day, in WW2, WW1 and other conflicts have given us, along with hope for the future. Items in this half include ‘Stars’ from ‘Les Misérables’, ‘Fascinatin’ Rhythm’ and ‘The World in Union’ as a soprano solo with military drumming.


The Celtic Male Ensemble, a vocal group from Cornwall of around 16 singers, directed by Alastair Taylor, were formed in 2014. They have performed all over Cornwall from the Minack Theatre to Truro Cathedral and were named Best UK Choir at the 2019 International Male Choral Festival. Tonight they cross the Tamar to give their first concert in Devon.


Joining the Ensemble will be guest soprano Donna Marie Broomfield (a Friday Recitals’ favourite) and soloists from the ever popular BRNC Concert Band, playing flute, trumpet, clarinet and military drum.


Proceeds from the concert will go to The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and The Flavel.

Linear B


Speaker : Peter Barker



Linear B is the oldest known script to write ancient Greek. The ability to read the script was lost and forgotton in ancient Greece. The script was rediscovered in the 1800's and finally deciphered in 1952.

Peter looks at the history of the script, how it was deciphered, and what the texts tell us of life before Classical Greek times.

Roadways in the Ancient World



The Romans laid out over 250,000 miles of roads, 10,000 miles of which were here in Britain.


Steve will cover what we know about the network, how the routes were laid out and constructed, how to find lost Roman roads. And an ingenious experiment involving fungus (yes - fungus) and to emphasise the importance of good roads we’ll look, just for fun, at the salesman’s biggest problem.
