Eastern Angles Present Medieval Miracles

Saturday, 15 April, 2023 - 19:00
The Street Bradfield CO11 2UU
Heaven is empty and Hell is full – what is God to do? Lower the bar? The answer comes in The Trails of Mary, a series of mystery plays telling the Nativity story – but not as you know it. The search for an Immaculate Conception hits a doubting husband, local opposition and scandal, and some sceptical midwives, until some starry eyed shepherds gets this wellknown story back on track. Plus Mankind, England’s most popular comedy of the 90’s (that’s the 1490’s) retold as a boisterous story of a climate conscious young man caught between the temptations of three mischievous devils and the need to be a good person. “East Anglia was the Broadway or West End of the 15th Century English theatre” once said a stage historian. With live music, comic twists and a sense of the ridiculous Eastern Angles brings two of its biggest hits right up to date this spring.

Daniel Bridge is running a one-day workshop designed to help you get more from your coastal photography, exploring composition, and more. The Naze at Walton, Essex, is a stunning backdrop to the beaches with a wide variety of features to allow a range of images to be made, and this workshop runs from late afternoon to dusk, hopefully including a colourful sunset. Itinerary: The day starts at 2.30pm at The Naze Nature Discovery Centre. The afternoon session consists of a classroom based slideshow and discussion about techniques, subjects and equipment. After a short snack break at around 4.30pm, we will go down to the beach to explore what we have covered indoors, allowing some one-to one time with each participant. We will stay at the shoreline as the tide comes in until around 8.30pm, completing the workshop.
