The Winter's Tale
Aug

7:00 PM19:00

The Winter's Tale

Written by Shakespeare in his later years, The Winter's Tale is an intriguing mix of drama and comedy.

Sparked by an obsessive envy of a perceived relationship between his Queen and his oldest friend, Leontes, the King of Sicilia, sets in motion a chain of events which affect two kingdoms and two generations; there is jealousy and joy, revenge and romance, loss and discovery, remorse and revelry, and an amazing revelation.

Tremendous entertainment for a Summer evening!

Notes on Performance:

Doors open at 6pm, so why not bring a picnic and come and enjoy the beautiful surroundings before the show?
Chairs, picnics, blankets and any other low level accessories are welcome.
In case of rain, please don't bring umbrellas as they block sight-lines for other audience members. Ponchos and raincoats are just as fetching anyway, so please wear these instead! In very bad weather, the performance will be in the barns.
Refreshments will be available.

Tickets are just £14 per adult, £9.50 children (under 16).

Available online, via the Cogges website, or at the Cogges welcome desk. 10% discount on tickets available for Cogges Season Ticket holders.

Bampton Day of Dance
May
21
8:30 AM08:30

Bampton Day of Dance

A day of dancing through the village - an annual celebration of Morris Dancing in a tradition dating back 500 years.

Bampton has three world-renowned Morris Dance teams. On the Monday of the Spring Bank Holiday, the teams start the dancing at around 08.30, and continue through the day at various locations in the village – including outside the pubs. The programme for the day’s events can be obtained in or around The Market Square. In the evening, visiting teams join in the dancing, and ‘make merry’. And do try the ‘fertility cake’, which is carried around the streets with the dancers.

Morris dancing typically involves six dancers, in a performance formation of two lines of three, plus various ancillary characters such as fool and cake/sword bearer.

The pubs are open all day and there are usually great music sessions in the evening.

Rare Plant Fair

Rare Plant Fair

fruit-2477515_1920.jpg

The Old Rectory, Quenington, Nr Cirencester

 

This Grade II listed Old Rectory with its organic garden has been developed over the past 40 years and is in a very tranquil setting on the banks of a mill race, with the River Coln running through the gardens. The wooden bridge that spans the river encapsulates the quirky spirit of fun, creativity and history that comes together at Quenington. The history of the site probably stretches back to the 12th century, when the Knights Hospitaller had a preceptory in the village.

Esme Bradburne, a former head gardener, who read Agriculture at Oxford, was one of the original founder members of the Soil Association.  The garden is still run completely on organic lines and Esme’s work was seminal in creating much of the planting that we see today.  Although the present layout goes back to 1928 when the Old Rectory was bought from the church.

There are herbaceous borders, mature trees, pool and bog gardens, as well as the large vegetable garden. The garden contains a permanent sculpture display.

Traditional Easter Saturday Concert

guitar-2999850_1920.jpg

Oxley-Meier guitar project
Traditional Easter Saturday Concert at Worton Organic Garden

£25.00 per person, to include entry, a drink and snacks.

 

“This album is a wonderful example of the high level of music that can be made by combining two great guitarists/composers/improvisers such as Pete and Nicolas. They have put together a feast of virtuosity, delivered with depth, wit and joy” ~ Ralph Towner (Oregon etc.)

 

 

The above was pertaining to the duo’s double-CD, ‘The Colours of Time’ (MGPrecords CD019). Released in February 2017, this is their most ambitious project to date, in that it is a ‘double’: one disc in duo format, the second in quartet with bass and drums. The release of the album coincided with a major UK tour of 35 dates, which was followed by further touring in the UK and Europe in autumn 2017. 

 

This album follows Oxley – Meier’s second release in 2015, ‘Chasing Tales’, which was supported by three tours, totaling 90 dates. Pete and Nick are now preparing further tours to support The Colours of Time in March/April 2018, covering both the UK and Europe. They are also booked to play at several major jazz festivals during the summer of 2018.

 

Since the spring ’17 tour, the duo has been offering venues the option to perform as a quartet: as per the second disc of the new album, the quartet for live gigs features the incredible rhythm section of Raph Mizraki (acoustic & electric basses) and Paul Cavaciuti (drums).

 

Oxley & Meier were invited by Jazzwise to be the first ever featured artists to have a covermount CD attached to the magazine (December/January 2015/16 edition).

 

 

Expect a dazzling display of contemporary fare, ranging from Turkish panache to soundscapes of latin America to English pastoralism. Hear this played on nylon string, steel string, electric and acoustic 12 strings, fretless, slide, guitar-synth, glissentar guitars and more! 

 

Headline quotes about ‘The Colours of Time’:

 

“When it comes to empathy, this duet of guitar virtuosi comes close to perfection” - The Observer ★★★★

 

"Not just a guitar album to love, a jazz album to savour but a joyous album of music that reaches toward a goal beyond” – Jazzwise  ★★★★

 

“these two resourceful maestros reach out to a wide audience” – The Guardian ★★★★

 

 

Pete Oxley  ~ Guitar  

 

Pete began his musical career in Paris in the mid ‘80s before relocating to the UK in 1997. Shortly afterwards he opened The Spin jazz club in Oxford which in 2012 won the Parliamentary jazz award as ‘The Best Jazz Venue In The UK’. Pete regularly performs with some of the world’s leading jazz artists including Chris Garrick, Gilad Atzmon, Tim Whitehead, Dave O’Higgins, Bobby Wellins, John Etheridge and his own band Curious Paradise. He has now released 14 critically acclaimed CDs featuring his original compositions.  

 

As a composer, Pete was recently selected as one of only a handful of British jazz musicians to have his compositions included in the definitive ‘European Real Book’ (Sher Music). www.peteoxley.com 

 

Nicolas Meier  ~ Guitar 

 

With his unique style that is a blend of Metheny-esque jazz and Turkish inspired world music, Nick has toured extensively around the world with his band the Meier Group, sharing the bill with some of the biggest names in jazz including Bill Evans and Brad Mehldau. This wonderful band (featuring sax maestro Gilad Atzmon) won the overall prize for ‘best band’ at the Juan-les-Pins jazz festival! 

 

His recent album Kismet is a wonderful heady mixture of Flamenco, jazz, Latin and Middle Eastern music. His prodigious jazz talent is matched by his other great passion: playing heavy metal guitar in his scorching group ‘Seven7’. Nick was, for the last three years, guitarist in guitar supremo, Jeff Beck’s band, with whom he toured all over the world, performing at major venues and festivals. He has recently recorded a stunning album with the A-lister rhythm section of Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets) and Vinnie Coliauta  (Sting, Frank Zappa etc.). www.meiergroup.com/oxley-meier

 

~ for the quartet concerts ~

 

Raph Mizraki  ~ Acoustic & electric basses

 

Raph has a hugely varied musical career behind him, ranging from high-level Medieval music (a former member of the Dufay Collective) to the funkiest of felonious funk! Although a genuine multi-instrumentalist, he is now specialising in bass and as such has credits with all sorts, but relevant to jazz, has worked with, among many others: Jamie Culham, Ross Stanley, John Etheridge, Mornington Lockett, Dave O’Higins etc. etc. A world-class player on both electric and acoustic basses.

 

Paul Cavaciuti  ~ Drums

 

Paul is an internationally renowned performer, composer and music educator. He is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, and of the Institute for Music and Health in New York. As a performer, he has played, toured and recorded with some of the top names in British and American music, including Jim Mullen, David Gordon, Tony Woods, Theo Travis, Mornington Lockett, Nigel Price, Chris Garrick, Chris Allard, Tim Whitehead, Jacqui Dankworth, The Hot Orange Big Band, Sheryl Bailey, The New York Festival of Song (NYFOS), and the London Chamber Orchestra.  His playing has been described as “inspired” (Jazz Journal International) and “outstanding and virtuosic” (Musician Magazine).

Charlbury Farmers Market

Farmers Market.jpg

Charlbury is a Cotswold Market Town with a Charter granted by King Henry III in 1256. The original market place was in Church Street but nowadays there is too much traffic and street closure is not an option. The Playing Close is a superb location and the Trustees of Thomas Gifford's Charity (the landowner) has agreed that Charlbury farmers' markets can take place there. Charlbury has a long history, which can be viewed in the Museum and its five Churches, it also has a hotel, a variety of pubs, delicatessen, book shop, newsagents, chemists, estate agents, general stores and a library. 

To this was added our first Farmers' Market in July 2001 of 8 stalls. We now attract about 30 stalls quarterly with a range of products from plants to willow baskets, chillies to sheepskins. All the produce comes from within a 50 mile radius of Charlbury and complies with TVFMC rules. 

We also allow stalls that promote Charlbury's many activities such as the annual Street Fair, Beer Festival and Children's Playgroup.
