What's Happening in Ross This Week?

Sadly, Ross Carnival is over for another year. However, there are still many events taking place in and around the town during the coming week and I'm sure there will be something amongst this week's events that will appeal. Please note that the events contained within this article are featured in order of occurrence and not preference.

Ross Heritage Centre is currently hosting an exhibition of the works of Goodrich Village Art Club, which will run until September 3rd and can be viewed during normal Heritage Centre opening hours.

For those of you who enjoy classical music, Ross Live are putting on a lunchtime concert at Ross Baptist Church on Wednesday 8th August. The concert is a piano trio, who will be performing popular trios by Hummel, Shostakovich and Rachmaninov. Tickets cost £5 and the concert begins at 1pm.

At the same time, as part of the Ross Live festival, Heartbreak productions will be running a theatre workshop at The Prospect, where they will work with up to thirty young people on Shakespeare's 'Twelfth Night'. Tickets for this workshop are £5. Tickets for the evening performance at 7:30 pm of Twelfth Night at The Prospect cost £10 and £8.

The Bowman's Tale returns to Goodrich Castle on Thursday 9th August. For further details of this event, please contact the castle direct on 01600 890538.

On Friday, 10th August there is another Ross live event. This time there is a concert of Baroque Masterpieces being performed at Ross Baptist Church, beginning at 7.30 pm. Tickets cost £15 and 10. Alternatively, you may prefer to go along to the Hope & Anchor and watch guitarist / vocalist Simon Blight perform his range of rock cover songs from 8:30 pm.

Saturday 11th August has much to offer by way of entertainment. Ross Horticultural Society are holding their 72nd annual show at The Larruperz Centre and there is another Ross Live lunchtime concert being held at Ross Baptist Church at 1 pm, where a brass ensemble will be performing popular pieces ranging from Gabrieli to Gershwin.

From 2 pm until 11 pm there will be a rock concert held at The Bandstand. The audience will be treated to performances by many local, talented bands and solo performers, culminating in a performance of 'Dark Side of the Moon' courtesy of Totem Pole.

If you prefer something a little easier on the ears, popular local duo, 'Little Sister, will be playing at The White Lion from 8.30 pm and female vocalist 'Mitch' will be providing the entertainment at The Prince of Wales from 9 pm.

Sunday afternoon's 'Bands in the Park' entertainment will be provided by the Forest of Dean Brass ensemble. These events are quite well attended when the sun shines, so lets hope for good weather at the weekend.

Tuesday, 14th August sees the final concert in the Ross Live! Festival 2007 programme. BBC Young Musician of the Year contender, Hannah Roper, aged 11, will be performing at Hom Church at 7:30 pm. Tickets for this event cost £15. Hannah has reached the next round of the Musician of the Year contest. We wish her well.

Details of these and future events can be found on the 'What's On?' page of Have a good week.
