Sunday 6 DECEMBER 2015  MUSICAL WALK

Following the success of our February event we have another MUSICAL WALK featuring Frances Shelley and Matthew Bickerton

Gary Battell, leading expert in ancient forests and renewal, will lead us on a magical walk around Staverton Park (www.stavertonpark.com) a famous 1000 year old oak wood originally used by the monks of the Priory for coppicing.  (sometimes you can actually see knights in shining armour riding through the trees, and monks in Cassocks busy at their work . . . !)

Back to Butley Priory for hot soup (roots and coriander?) where composer / improviser Frances Shelley and sound designer Matthew Bikerton will play an hour of  candle lit music improvised in response to the afternoon’s walk.

Tickets £15 from info@butleypriory.co.uk

Booking essential 2 – 6 pm details of walk meeting place will be emailed to you when you book
