The Village Hall and Playing Field Committee is organising an Italian Night,  to be held on Friday 19th January 2018 at 7.00pm in the Village Hall.

Along the lines of past Curry evenings, you are invited to get out your Italian cookery books and bring along a contribution to the shared meal.  Don’t forget to bring something Italian to drink!

Please make antipasti, pasta dishes or tiramisu – contact Sheryl on 870554 or Sue on 860374 to let them know what you intend to make – you can have too much of a good thing, even tiramisu!!

There will be a £5 charge at the door, all proceeds being split between the Village Hall and Playing Field funds and the Mary Budding Trust, a local children’s charity.  Click here to find out more about the Mary Budding Trust

Duo Villanesca at Brentor Village Hall

Duo Villanesca are a London-based flute and guitar duo comprising Spanish flautist Ana Estefania Rodriguez and ex-Brentor resident the English guitarist Peter Joe Bennett. 
Formed whilst students at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2015, they have progressed from learning and performing the complex master work “Toward the Sea” by Toru Takemitsu,  to discovering and exploring the flute and guitar repertoire from all periods.
Together and separately they have performed regularly in concerts around the UK and Spain at venues including Cadogan Hall, St Martin in the Fields, Cheltenham Town Hall, Ateneo de Madrid, Blackheath Halls, Kings Place, Royal Greenwich Guitar Festival, Greenwich University and Madrid Royal Theatre.
Their concerts are a chance to express the joy they find in bringing this wonderful music to life, sharing with audiences some fantastic repertoire and combining intimacy with a joint sense of spontaneous risk taking.  Their repertoire ranges from early music through to works of the 20th/21st centuries with a particular focus on original music from the 20th century.
Peter and Ana are winners of the Alison Stephen´s Competition and the Harold Clarke Competition respectively.  They are recipients of the Colin Blythe Bursary Fund, awarded to support careers in chamber music and have been part of Trinity Chamber Music Artists since 2015.  Ana has been nominated for the prestigious Gold Medal Award, Trinity’s highest accolade which takes place at Kings Place in January 2018.
