Out of this World by David Bent

The exhibition runs from 30th June to 29th August 2021. Opening times are 11-4pm Wednesdays through Sundays. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

We are delighted to be hosting this new exhibition of David Bent’s art of flight collection inspired by the Red Arrows. This is the first time that these iconic works will be displayed together at the Goods Shed Tetbury.

Andrew Morton of the Red Arrows has written:

“Leading modern aviation artist David Bent was first invited to collaborate as Artist in Residence with the Red Arrows in 2006. This remains a positive and enduring goodwill relationship and David is the artist most closely associated with the team. His work is exhibited on the walls of the team’s Lincolnshire home base of RAF Scampton, including in the crew briefing room.

With wonderful use of colour, expert detail and creativity, his work perfectly showcases both the excitement of flight and its inherent beauty. David’s art reflects the precision and engineering excellence of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team. In addition, he captures the imagination of those who see and are inspired by his pieces – just as the Red Arrows do with every performance and display.”

David Bent

Awarded Honorary Companionship  of the Royal Aeronautical Society, David is credited with leading a new movement in modern aviation art

Recent Exhibitions include the National Memorial Arboretum, St George’s Bristol, Royal Air Force Museum, Swindon Museum & Art Gallery and Russell Cotes Museum & Art Gallery.

20%  of sales from this Exhibition of David’s work will go directly to benefit the work of Tetbury Goods Shed.

There will also be a number of opportunities to meet the artist.

King Arthur brought to you by The Last Baguette

21 July | 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Tickets: £8 for Adults  –  £6.00 for 6-18 years – Family Ticket £25.00 (2 Adults & 2 under 18 years)

booking fee applies. All tickets to be pre-booked via www.shed-arts.co.uk or by calling into Tetbury Visitor Information Centre.

Somewhere in England, a long time ago, a very, very, very long time ago.  So long ago that nobody quite knows whether it happened or not. Or where it happened or not.

A boy pulled a sword from a stone and became King. A story of the old world, with knights, wizards, mist, and mediocre magic.

This fun and farcical adventure is a deliberately anarchic and anachronistic re-telling of the Arthurian Legend with live music, physical comedy and lo-fi acrobatics.

Suitable for all ages 6+

PLEASE NOTE:

This is an open air performance and will take place on the Loading Bay adjacent to The Goods Shed.  Please bring your own blankets and cushions to sit on.

The show will go on regardless of the weather so please do dress accordingly (and we politely request no umbrellas so as not to obscure the view of others – thank you)

“The energy and commitment of the company is infectious…this is unique small scale theatre with a great heart” – Theatre Bath on The Little Match Girl

COVID INFO

Arthur Fleck is a wannabe stand-up comic who suffers from many mental illnesses, including one which causes him to laugh uncontrollably when he is nervous, and often gets him into bad situations. Arthur’s mental health causes almost all people in society to reject and look down upon him, even though all he wants is to be accepted by others. After being brutally beaten, having his medication cut off, Arthur’s life begins to spiral downward out-of-control into delusions, violence, and anarchy until he eventually transforms into Gotham’s infamous Clown-Prince of Crime.

COVID INFO

A new post-lockdown piano club has started at The Goods Shed, Tetbury.  Our next gathering takes place on Wednesday 28th July from 2-4pm. Offering a wonderful opportunity for amateur musicians who have worked hard at their music for the past year finally to play for other people.

Since acquiring the Steinway grand piano the Goods Shed has hosted hugely successful and popular Tea Concerts on Wednesday afternoons with local amateur musicians playing for an appreciative and interested audience. It is hoped that Piano Club 21 will build on this and incorporate the warm social atmosphere of these gatherings with the opportunity to play for a group of peers. The Whistle Stop Café will also be open from lunchtime and during the afternoon offering a range of refreshments.

Due to social distancing  measures –  numbers will be strictly limited and all participants will need to book in advance.

Anyone wanting to perform should contact in the first instance:

Maggie Dyson

[email protected]

Telephone: 01666 837 358

and she will be able to confirm availability and performance time slot

We do hope you can come along and maybe bring a guest.    There is just a small charge for all who attend, whether playing or listening and tickets can be booked here

Wednesday 28 July – Shed Talk with Peter Barham: ‘A Physicist amongst the Penguins’

Tetbury Goods Shed Arts Centre – 7:30 pm

Professor Peter Barham has enjoyed a varied career including being involved with the research and conservation work on penguins. Initially using his expertise in polymer physics to design novel marking techniques that could be used by field biologists.

The research project he set up in 2000 to test new rubber flipper bands for penguins has since evolved into one of the longest running penguin monitoring and research projects on any species and the data collected feeds directly into decision making on penguin conservation.

Although the main focus of the talk will be on African penguins, he will begin with an introduction to each of the 18 (or thereabouts) species of penguin and include a few interesting facts about their individual characteristics and behaviour.

Following that Professor Barham will talk in more detail about the African penguin and explain why they are now an endangered species with a high probability of becoming extinct within 25 to 50 years and the work being done to try and change the situation.

All tickets to be pre-booked via www.shed-arts.co.uk or by calling into Tetbury Visitor Information Centre.

Tickets: £8.00 each plus booking fee. Pre-booked seats only (no tickets on the door).

Featuring the voice of Helen Marshall, backed by Dave Roach and Phil Harris (guitars), and Peter Martin (bassist), the band members are seasoned musicians, each with their own rich and varied tale of performing, each with their own eclectic mix of inspirations and influences, each bringing their own musical personality to the band’s sound.

All tickets to be pre-booked via www.shed-arts.co.uk or by calling into Tetbury Visitor Information Centre.

Tickets: £12.50 each plus booking fee. Pre-booked seats only (no tickets on the door). Licensed bar. Doors open at 7.30 pm

Rodmarton

Rossini’s The Barber of Seville
Saturday 31st of July

Written in three weeks, Rossini’s masterpiece is one of the wittiest and most immediately appealing comic operas in the repertoire today and is as fresh to the ear now as when it first burst upon it’s Italian audiences in 1816. On first hearing, the utter joy of one melodic masterpiece flowing into the next is thrilling to any audience. As the plot unfolds and is dramatically told through Rossini’s brilliant musical structure, it helps us to understand, in part, the Barber’s special place in the history of opera.

Performance begins at 7.30pm until approx. 10.20

Gates open at 6-30pm for you to enjoy the beautiful grounds.
Bring your own rugs, chairs and a picnic.
