WHAT DO YOU HAVE PLANNED…
… over the Bank Holiday Weekend? On Sunday 26th May, Sarah Farmer presents Made with Passion, a small collection of pieces set to supercharge your wardrobe and take you on a journey in style. This will all be on display in the Georgian Music Room in the Clonterbrook Courtyard from 10am – 8pm. For the Sat Nav CW12 2LS, but otherwise it is just over the road from Clonter Opera Theatre – Just after the S bend (and beyond the temporary traffic lights) on the left, if you are coming from Congleton, and just after you have passed the theatre, on your right, if you are coming from Lower Withington.
This also gives you an opportunity to see inside this exquisite bespoke Georgian music room, converted from a derelict shipping, for the mezzo-soprano Betty Bannerman, by her husband, Derek Lockett, of daffodil and watercolour fame. Intrigued?
If the sun is shining, you will also be able to enjoy the glorious rhododenrons, by the pond. Another of Derek Lockett’s passions.
A heron was out today enjoying the sunshine. If you fancy sprucing up your plumage, Made with Passion might have just the thing.
