1.  Telemann and Friends : Classical Music Concert at the Flavel

Be introduced to a man with ‘A’ list friends! Sat 6th Oct 7.30pm.  ‘Telemann and Friends’ will be an intimate chamber music concert exploring the music of the great German composer and some of his contemporaries. Works by this prolific composer reflects this 18th century age of elegance and are known as being most accessible, consequently a performance on period instruments by Mary Pells viola da gamba, Rachel Latham flute and Martin Knizia harpsichord promises to be a very special experience.

Georg Phillpp Telemann is one of the luminaries of early 18th century music. Defying family pressure this young self-taught musician continued his musical studies whilst continuing the formal education imposed by his family. But genius will out and eventually works written by this young composer became more and more popular, leading to Telemann being offered increasingly prestigious roles in the leading music cities within his native Germany. Along the way he counted Handel and J. S. Bach among his great friends, the latter even naming one of his sons, Carl Phillip Emanuel Bach, after Telemann. who subsequently became his godfather. Telemann was also acclaimed as the founder of the Collegium Musicum which met in the garden of a Leipzig Coffee House and provided a platform for young performers.

The programme on Saturday 6th October at 7.30pm includes works by the man himself and also CPE Bach, J S Bach and Michel Blavet . These “A” List musicians regularly perform similar programmes in London to great acclaim, offering an informed insight into this musical era. Music lovers are recommended to book tickets for this performance (£16 – Concessions £15 under 18s £5) at the Flavel Box Office on 01803 839530 or online by clicking here. The Flavel Arts Café will also be offering their fantastic pre-show suppers prior to this concert .


2.  And now for something completely different : Tonight !

Today Thursday 4th October, Browns is hosting a ladies clothing and jewellery sale. Threads Boutique and Helen Butler Jewellery will be setting up their stalls at Browns from 6pm. This a great opportunity for a "girls night out", so bring your friends along for a bit of retail therapy.

To make the night all the more enjoyable Browns is reducing its famous pink fizz, Jansz to just £3.95 per glass (usual price £5.95)!

Threads Boutique buys sample clothing from agents who provide 'boutique' style shops with the following brands: Cream, Kaffe, Peppercorn, Yest and Oxmo. The clothes are brand new, never worn, but tend to be 'one off's', bought as a collection, not in a range of sizes. They are for the every day woman who likes to wear something a little different. The clothes are beautifully made and come from Holland and Denmark. Because they are samples, they can be sold up to 75% off the retail price, so everyone bags a bargain. There really is something for everyone. The age range is limitless and the pieces timeless. Prices start at about £15 for evening wear trousers, £20 for evening jackets and £30 for evening dresses.

Helen Butler Designs is a collection of contemporary jewellery inspired by the beautiful Devon countryside. Helen's pieces are simple and stylish, all handmade in sterling silver. The range is priced extremely competitively which makes Helen's jewellery perfect for a special treat or gift.
