Rachel

Small Nose and Trestle Theatre Company weave together intricate full mask theatre, with elements of clowning, to share this incredibly moving performance of ‘Rachel’, the story of Mrs Rachel Levy, (Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen Survivor).


With great generosity, Mrs Levy has given her story about her extraordinary resilience and survival from the worst horror our world has ever seen, the Holocaust, so that we can pass this on and share with people.


We introduce some of Rachel’s family to you. Her and her brother Chaskiel were the only survivors, her mother, father, two younger sisters and younger brother Ben did not. Each of those who survived and those who did not have a story that should be told and never forgotten.

Music Workshop: Singing The Songs of Henry Burstow

This day long workshop, is the first of two linked events at Holy Innocents Church, Southwater, to celebrate the wonderful folk music of Henry Burstow, as arranged by Lucy Broadwood.


Henry Burstow (1826–1916) was a shoemaker and bellringer from Horsham, Sussex, best known for his vast repertoire of songs, many of which were collected in the folksong revival of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He was also the author of Reminiscences of Horsham, which gives a lively picture of life in the mid-nineteenth century.


The workshop will be led by Alex Hodgkinson, Director of Music at Christ’s Hospital, with a folk singer to demonstrate how the songs were originally sung. Please arrive from 9:30am for a 10am start and bring a picnic lunch, other refreshments will be provided.


The workshop will finish by 4:30 pm. Family and friends are welcome to come along from 3:30pm onwards to hear the songs.


We hope the majority of those attending the workshop will be able to sing in the concert to be held on 10th February at 15:30.
