SUSSEX JAZZ KINGS

Dave Stradwick, the well-known player of hot, traditional, jazz trumpet, leads the band. Early in 2000, Dave and Lesley Stradwick moved from their London home to Sussex for a “quieter life!” Dave had been the leader of Vintage Jazz for many years and also played with other busy bands. A decision was made to leave Vintage and so cut down on the workload to give time to renovating the Sussex house. It soon became obvious, that people missed his humour fronting a band, and he decided to form a new band, The ‘Sussex Jazz Kings’. It started with a ‘low key approach’, but natured the ‘fun element’ for which Vintage had been renown. Inevitably this, combined with the fine musical ability of the chosen musicians, resulted in the band becoming more and more popular around the M25 area and beyond. Dave now concentrates on leading his own band again. The band has been resident band in a club at Box Hill near Dorking, Surrey’ they regularly play to a crowded club and take the opportunity to introduce new numbers, judging their reaction before inflicting them on unsuspecting audiences elsewhere. In many peoples opinion, the band is now a fine exponent of happy traditional jazz, in the broad New Orleans style. The ‘jazzers’ come back every week, so the band must be doing something right. The band now plays at all major jazz festivals and tours the country to perform at most great jazz clubs, in the last few years they have had many bookings across Europe and beyond.

Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway Now Open

Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway
From: 11 Mar '18 10:00am -
To: 04 Nov '18 04:00pm

A visitor once described Exbury Gardens as ‘Heaven with the gates open’. It is a garden for people young and old, horticulturalist or enthusiastic gardener, or just a lover of beautiful places.

Lionel de Rothschild was a keen collector of plants and he was also a highly successful hybridiser of many different species and Exbury is still filled with his creations. This tradition has been continued by his descendants, Edmund and Leopold and his grandsons, Nicholas and Lionel who actively continue to develop the gardens to this day.

Lionel had several strands in his hybridisation programme but it was generally

dominated by a desire to produce increased hardiness, better flowers and improved flowering.

In the years that Lionel devoted to Exbury, he was innumerable crosses of which he kept only the best. His stud book records 1210 hybrids that he considered successful. He further analysed these and decided that 452 were worthy of being individually named and registered with the Royal Horticultural Society.

Subsequent generations have continued to hybridise and Rothschild crosses continue to grace the show benches of the RHS.

‘A truly fantastic day out. My wife and I were bowled over by the amazing spring colours of rhododendrons and azaleas and there was literally colour everywhere. There are beautiful areas to walk through as well as places to sit. We took a picnic in the hope of being able to sit by one of the ponds and were not disappointed – the reflections were as spectacular as the real thing! The next thing we want to do is return in the autumn to see the colours change as it must be beautiful’

David Parker, Christchurch

The academy has produced many players who have gone on to play international football and become shining stars on the world stage.
Southampton Football Club has a strong spirit of community, with a legion of loyal fans, and has been an integral part of the City’s life since its foundation more than 130 years ago.

RIVER CRUISE

Buckler's Hard
From: 30 Mar '18 10:30am -

DISCOVER HISTORY & WILDLIFE

Originally granted to the monks of Beaulieu Abbey by King John in 1204, the rights and responsibilities of caring for the Beaulieu River later passed to the Montagu family. Their careful ownership has created a river which is largely unspoilt and a haven for wildlife.

An engaging commentary will reveal the fascinating history of this unique river as well as the creatures that inhabits its riverbanks.

During August only there is also a sailing at 17.15.

All sailings are subject to conditions of carriage.

The Tropical Butterfly House is open to end of October 2018.

In the pupae emerging box you can watch the pupa wiggle and move until the pupa split open to allow the adult butterfly to emerge. It takes many hours for its wings to dry and be ready to release into the butterfly house.

The exotic adult butterflies are colourful as they enjoy the warmth of the Tropical Butterfly House.

You may be lucky and see some butterfly eggs and/or caterpillars on the the underside of the leaves (especially the banana leaves).

Can you find one of the many stick insects in the butterfly house?

George Shaw: My Back to Nature

Southampton City Art Gallery
From: 04 May '18 10:00am -
To: 01 Sep '18 10:00am

This exhibition features over 50 paintings and drawings made by the artist George Shaw during his two year residency at the National Gallery.
With unrestricted access to the gallery and its collection Shaw was inspired to create new works that offer a contemporary response to the mythological landscapes painted by masters such as Titian, Poussin and Constable. Shaw is interested in how the stories in these paintings – often featuring violence, illicit sex and drunkenness – have parallels in the way that people might behave in the woods today, when they think they are unobserved. This is complemented by Shaw’s interest in Christian imagery, especially how landscape artists of the past often alluded to the Crucifixion in their depiction of trees.
Shown alongside the works by Shaw will be two paintings from the National Gallery’s Collection which served as inspiration during the residency.

Kelly Richardson: Pillars of Dawn

Southampton City Art Gallery
From: 25 May '18 10:00am -
To: 06 Oct '18 03:00pm

Taking cues from 19th-century painting, 20th-century cinema, and 21st-century planetary research, acclaimed Vancouver Island based artist Kelly Richardson crafts prints and videos that offer imaginative glimpses into the future which prompt a careful consideration of the present. For over a decade, Richardson has made works which speculate on what lies ahead given our current trajectory, often by imagining sublime, apocalyptic landscapes that have become inhospitable to humanity.

Exhibiting across two galleries, Pillars of Dawn presents us with a scenario seemingly from the near future, in which all of our points of orientation are placed in doubt. The works ask us not only ‘how did we get here?’ or ‘what have we done?’ but ‘what have we become?’ and ‘what can we do - collectively?’ For Richardson, there can be no more urgent a set of questions.

SHAKESPEARE AT BEAULIEU

Beaulieu
From: 11 Jul '18 07:30pm -
To: 13 Jul '08 10:00pm

Castle Theatre Company, from the University of Durham, present one of Shakespeare’s most iconic and witty comedies, Twelfth Night. The complex tale of lost siblings, mistaken identities and drunk knights is at once moving, side-splittingly fund and builds to a genuinely heart-warming ending.

After a horrible shipwreck, the noblewoman Viola is separated from her twin brother, Sebastian. Assuming her brother has drowned and fearing for her life because she washed ashore in enemy territories, she disguises herself as a boy and gains employment in the house of the nearest Duke, called Orsino. The Duke is trying to get the wealthy heiress Olivia to marry him. After taking a liking to the new ‘boy’, Orsino sends Viola to propose on his behalf, despite the fact Viola has fallen head-over-heels in love with the Duke himself.

Meanwhile, at Olivia’s mansion, the fool Feste returns after a year’s travel; he is scorned by the snobbish steward Malvolio, who has designs upon his mistress and considers himself the de facto Lord. And Sir Toby Belch, the Lady’s cousin, is warned about his heavy drinking. Worried that his rich relatives will stop subsidising his hedonistic lifestyle, he summons his young friend, Sir Andrew, to woo Olivia so that he can continue to live with her. All the while, Olivia has been using the recent death of her brother to avoid making any choices about her marriage.

Into this walks Viola, with whom Olivia falls madly in love, thinking she was a boy. As everyone competes for Olivia’s hand in marriage, Sir Toby becomes worried that such rivalry will be too much for Sir Andrew. After a severe dressing down from Malvolio, Sir Toby plots to make Olivia think her steward has gone mad and to engineer a duel in which Sir Andrew can kill Viola.

Things get even more complicated when Sebastian arrives on the scene, having tracked his sister to this house. He immediately finds Olivia asking to marry him and Sir Andrew trying to kill him, though he’s not sure why…

For over 35 years Castle Theatre Company has taken its annual summer Shakespeare tour around the south of England and the USA, performing classic comedies on the lawns of stately homes, gardens and abbeys across two continents. Renowned for its high-standard, the Summer Shakespeare promises an evening of excellent family entertainment.

This summer the Tower is celebrating all things under the sea! A special Sea Life trail will encourage youngsters to explore the building in search of letters to solve the mystery location of Oscar the Octopus and the Tower’s mischievous explorer, Vugo.
