11am – 2pm
It’s Where We Go
is a site-specific performance which explores the British seaside and the phenomenon of nostalgia, through live performance and audio. The audience are invited into a collective and personal journey, as they are given a pair of headphones and an audio device, which invites them into a curated collection of memories gathered from across the country, related to the seaside.
Incorporating both local themes and universal, the performance questions the notion of ‘The British Seaside’ as a recognisable neutral space as well as including specific stories from beaches all over the UK.
It’s Where We Go, celebrates personal, local and national identity and community, and the audience are invited to share their own memories on a postcard at the end of the performance, which leaves traces of their identity upon the place and within the collected archive of the performance.
The legacy that this creates will be available as an online public platform for further contribution, discovery and exploration.
Here is the link to the event:
11am – 2pm
Madi Stimpson Trio
Madi and his trio take you on a wide-genre-engaging journey via Django Reinhardt, Chet Atkins and Les Paul to some of Madi’s contemporaries, including Van Morrison, Moving Hearts and even a bit of Frank Zappa. Jazz, Roots & Boots, perhaps, but always engaging with awe inspiring musicianship.
All this and a delicious meal with views across the picturesque Tenby Harbour.
12 – 3pm
Tickets £15.00 in advance only from Fourcroft Hotel
