There's a lot happening in Dunsden this weekend. A poetry themed flower festival in All Saints Church highlights Wilfred Owen and his local connections, and on Sunday afternoon we are holding a Mementos and Memories day when you can bring your family's stories and objects for evaluation and possible inclusion (on loan) in our November exhibition. Experts will be on hand, and teas will be served. Find out more at http://www.owenindunsden.org/

A440 in concert to mark WW1


Dunsden Owen Association's partner organisation the Reading A440 Choir is performing in two concerts locally this July. They will mark a number of special 2014 anniversaries, including that of the outbreak of the First World War.

The concerts will include the first ever performances of a new drama, 'Travelling with Handel', by the choir's Artistic Director, Patricia Beall Gavigan, with Jeremy Radburn, playing Handel. The evening will also include 'The Hope of Peace' – a narrative on WW1 with readings by award-winning narrator Peter Pearson.

Tickets are available on A440 website and also on the door, but are selling fast, especially for the Binfield performance.
