The Memory House Live.

As part of my curatorship at Bakewell Old House Museum we had a multi media event “Live” on the 20th May. Music from Dean Mcphee and Jim Ghedi​ and Neal visual by Richard Hildebrand , words from Nicky Crewe, Photography from Billy Bye and his video work with yours truly .I also exhibited work.A fantastic turn out on what turned out to be a special night.


April ended with a flurry of activity preparing for Open Studios for Beltane. The weather turned cold and overcast with a few bright days.A great day wandering west of white edge was a highlight as we followed an old trackway. Nearer home part of another old way is Dark Lane.A sunny morning revealed buzzards and we could hear but not see a Woodpecker near by. We also took ourselves out west to another of our “secret places” . The countryside is quiet though. A few Lapwings we heard Curlew s but not seen them in the flesh!
