1. BBC Piano Young
Musician Winner 2006 - to play at the Flavel
Cordelia Williams : Classical Music
Concert at the Flavel : BBC Young Musician Piano Winner 2006:
Fri 12th April 7.30pm
Since becoming the Piano Winner of BBC Young Musician 2006,
Cordelia Williams has continued to build an international career
as ‘one of the outstanding pianists of her generation’. She has
given recital and concerto performances throughout Great
Britain, as well as in France, Italy, Thailand, China, America,
Kenya and the Gulf States, and always likes to introduce the
music to her audience. She has recently been awarded 1st prize
at the Concours International de Piano in Aix-en-Provence and
2nd prize at the Dudley International Piano Competition.
Hearing her mother teach piano,
Cordelia wanted to learn to play too, and began lessons at home
as soon as she could climb onto the piano stool. She gave her
first public piano recital to celebrate her eighth birthday. She
went on to study at Chetham’s School of Music, Manchester, Clare
College, Cambridge and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama,
where she studied with Joan Havill. She was then invited to
become a Fellow of the Guildhall School.
Alongside her performing career, Cordelia runs Cafe Muse, an
innovative series of events bringing classical music out of the
concert hall and into the relaxed setting of London bars and
brasseries. She hopes to attract a new audience to classical
music, especially people of her own generation.
Don’t miss seeing this amazing
pianist up close at the Flavel. Programme to include:
Schubert: Sonata in A major D664 : Liszt: Apres une Lecture de
Dante : Mozart: Adagio in B minor : Schumann: Fantasie in C op

Simon Hart new original work
Simon Hart has new original work
showing in Baxters Gallery in Foss Street this week. It’s a
departure from the Dartmouth scenes which he is known for but
instead depicts wildlife in collage format.
They are made using a multitude
of techniques from mono-printing to mark-making and also
include some stamped images from the old Tozers printing
blocks. There is a selection of birds and creatures to
choose from and all are priced at £325, an affordable price
for an original artwork.

The Guard : showing next week
Just a quick reminder that there
is no film this Thursday (4th April). Our first film back
after the Easter break will be on Thursday 11th April.
Director: John Michael McDonagh
: Actors: Brendan Gleeson, Don Cheadle : 96 minutes : Cert.
15. Comedy/Crime/Thriller : ‘By the brother of In Bruges
director Martin McDonagh, The Guard is already Ireland’s
second most successful film. And it’s very, very funny.’
Brendan Gleeson is on fine form as unorthodox Garda Gerry
Boyle (special interests: class-A drugs, Russian literature,
prostitutes, swimming, swearing) whose quiet corner of
coastal Connemara becomes an international crime hotspot,
when urban FBI agent Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle) arrives
on his patch in pursuit of half a billion dollars’ worth of
cocaine and the drug smuggling ring responsible. Everett is
polite, focused and professional. None of these words apply
to Boyle, whose performance at the first case briefing is
caustic, insulting and racist – though he protests: “I’m
Irish, racism is part of my culture!” It’s this superb
central relationship that sets The Guard apart from the cop
buddy movie rank and file and the film lights up from the
moment Gleeson and Cheadle first share the screen, their
dialogue hissing and fizzing with outrageous slurs, brutal
wit and a keen slice of intelligence.
This film is on Thursday 11th
April. Films are screened at The
Guildhall, Victoria Road, Dartmouth. The bar is open from
7.00pm and the films start at 7.30pm Guest tickets are
available on the night for £4.00 each from “The Windjammer”
Victoria Road between 7.00pm & 7.25pm only. No guest tickets
will be sold on the door. For more information call Clive Osborne on: Tel. 07968
Facebook killed the Newsletter ?
Video killed the radio star,
then CD's killed records, after that downloads killed
CD's. e-mail killed writing letters and now Facebook
has killed both email and newsletters. How ?
well our Facebook News page can get 113,018 individual
views on a single article from a reach of 434,583 Dartmouth
liking users (figures taken today). Even a simple
story about Dartmouth being featured in the Western Morning
News can easily get three times the readership of this
Reporting news on Facebook is
very easy for us, it's a lot less formal and way more
immediate. But the two big issue are that we get more
readers and it takes a fraction of the time that this weekly
newsletter takes to compile. So from this week
onwards, unless there is a lot of important news, we will be
fortnightly. So no news next week. Just news
every other week, that is unless we get 1,000's of people
complaining and pledging ten pound notes to us !
Don't believe what you hear
about Facebook, you can join and keep everything totally
private. We won't bombard you with stuff, just news as
and when it happens, immediately with no delay! So
for a no obligation, no subscribe preview ?
We have been producing weekly
news since May 2006,

you know who you are and we thank you and will continue to
work with you both here and on Facebook.

in: "Love the newsletter and look forward to catching up
with Dartmouth each week.
We have been visiting for over 30 years during which
time the 'Gunny' has had its ups and downs and latterly
empty for years - what a waste of a prime riverside
position. What is going on now - will it eventually
become apartments? You know everything so perhaps you
can enlighten us." Anyone know ?
