Artistry on the Birchmeadow wallsFor some time the Birchmeadow walls have been graced by exhibitions of art and photography, and "looking back" displays.
This exhibition showcases the rich and diverse art work created by the long established weekly art classes based in Broseley. The group formed approximately 20 years ago, initially founded by reputable Artist Betsy Smith and some of the original, as well as long standing group members are still in regular attendance. Since 2010, the classes have been taught by Broseley based Artist and Tutor Caris Jackson and this exhibition features recent work by a number of group members.
The sessions focus upon developing observational and technical skills through structured activities, however experimenting and investigating new media and techniques is greatly encouraged. Group members are supported in developing their own unique style which sometimes involves taking risks and recognising the process is as important as the final outcome.
There are three different art classes per week and new members of an experience and ability can join at any time. For more please contact Caris.

Who’s in it?
What’s it about?This is a drama based on the true story of Christopher McCanless, a young man who leaves his middle class existence to live in the Alaskan wilderness.
Giving up his home, family and all possessions except the few he carries on his back, McCandless embarks on a journey through America. His ultimate goal is to reach the wilds of Alaska to spend time with untamed nature, away from the obligations and relationships of the modern world.
In the months leading up to his ‘Great Alaskan Adventure’ his travels take him on a journey of self discovery where he learns to appreciate the world around him and reflect on his troubled upbringing. When he reaches Alaska he is ill prepared for the hardships to come.

Amateur dramatics with real drama.
Broseley*s highly regarded drama group are going to grip us with yet another outstanding play, directed by Bill Mills – you can expect yet another outstanding performance. It*ll be played in the round, with an intermingling of stage and screen.
Ella Fitzgerald*s is a beautiful rendition of "Someone to watch over Me": a soulful song about love. Frank McGuinness knew it well, and he used it to name his spellbinding play, which is definitely not a love story.
The scene is a cell in the Lebanon, where the Hezbollah are holding three hostages. The trio of men live for months: no, for years, in perpetual fear, trapped in their breeze-block cell.
"Someone Who*ll Watch Over Me" digs deep into the discomforts and complexities of their emotions. McGuinness shows us the intimate relationships and bonds which form in this clever "stuck in a lift" scenario. Trying to alleviate the intense, killing boredom, the inmates share their failings, their ambitions and their paranoia. All of this blends together to create the rich and complex characters. The growing tension is relieved intermittently with banter between the hostages, who are an Englishman, an Irishman and an American. McGuinness cleverly takes advantage of the comic potential between these closely linked yet sometimes conflicting nations, even though he*s caught them up in the most horrendous of situations.
Human resilience in the struggle to survive.
Humour - even in the face of adversity.
Fab film and fab food.The Birchmeadow at Broseley is hosting another evening of treats - this time, it will be Italian tastes.
Our previous evenings - one Indian, the other French - were enormously well enjoyed. The evenings were highly sociable, with 80 people enjoying themselves from start to finish - they were all-round good value.
For the first (Monsoon Wedding was the film), our food came from Zengh, whilst for le soir Francais (La Vie en Rose), it came from the kitchen at the Birchmeadow : all cooked by the theme team.
Questa volta, la squadra de la cucina di nuovo insieme.
The delightful film is

don*t panic - don*t panic !!!Bridgnorth Players return to the Birchmeadow with a visual dramatisation of the 1938 Orson Welles radio play based on H. G. Wells* 1898 novel.
The orginal broadcast had millions of Americans rushing pell-mell into a state of panic - they thought that a real Martian invasion was taking place, so accomplished and believable was the production.
This version, adapted and directed by Liz Herdson, will reproduce most of the sound effects manually, with some help from the audience, so it will be a lot of fun - but be prepared to scream as well!
