What’s on


Sun 22 Oct: Big Apple Take-Away

2.30pm on the Playing Close every other Sunday afternoon from September through to November. All welcome, please come along and help yourself to FREE fruit.

10th & 24th September, 8th & 22nd October, 5th & 19th November

Last year we have had about 60 varieties of apple, also plums, grapes, pears and quinces. This week we will probably have 13 different eaters, 12 types of cookers, and also Conference pears.

If you have spare apples (or grapes, plums, pears, quinces and medlars) for picking and you'd like them to be given away free at these events throughout the autumn, please contact sharecroppers@charlburygreeenhub.org.uk or 01608-811057 - we pick fruit from within an 8 mile radius from Charlbury. Enormous thanks to everyone who offers their surplus fruit for picking and redistribution every year rather than see it wasted - we couldn't do this without your generosity.

In May, Charlbury Sharecroppers' received this year's OCVA Environmental Award from the Oxfordshire Community and Voluntary Action organisation at Oxford Town Hall. This is county-wide recognition that what we are doing in Charlbury is a really good model for other communities to follow.

2017 is Charlbury Sharecroppers' 10th year - last year we redistributed about 2 tonnes of apples, do you remember your favourite varieties and when they were available? The fruit is given away FREE and you can take it for eating fresh, cooking, or storing.

When to eat apples and pears?

Early season apples don't store well fresh and need eating or cooking straight away but varieties that ripen in October will store for several weeks, keep them in the salad draw in your fridge or in a cold garage - perforated plastic bags are good to stop russets shrivelling. Pears need to be stored in fridge and brought out a few at a time to room temperature for a few days until they are soft enough to eat - test by pressing the neck or if gentle pressure of thumb nail goes through the skin - then they will be divine - an unripe crunchy pear is such a wasted opportunity!

Sat 25 Nov: Will Killeen at The Rose & Crown!

Will Killeen, originally from County Mayo, Ireland, is a highly acclaimed acoustic blues guitarist, singer and songwriter. He has a unique style - Celtic roots mixed with American blues. You can expect songs from early blues standards through to Dylan classics delivered with inimitable percussive guitar and whirling vocals. He's also considered to be one of the foremost slide guitar players in Europe today.

Will taught himself guitar from the age of 10 then, influenced by Howlin' Wolf, Doc Watson, The Pretty Things, Robert Johnson, Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones, to name a few. Soon he was performing around London and once replaced Rory Gallagher when Taste was formed. He plays regularly at countless venues in England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Italy, Germany and the United States.

Will is a walking blues history manual, taking you on a journey from Robert Johnson and Elmore James through to an unlikely but brilliant version of "Duelling Banjos" - all on one acoustic guitar!

Will has been playing in Charlbury for over 20 years! Don't miss this outstanding musician!

The music starts at 9pm.

Sun 14 Jan: A piano recital by Margaret Fingerhut

At 3pm in the Memorial Hall, Charlbury

Tickets £10 (under 15, £5) include tea and cake. Please email charlburyrefugee@gmail.com to book.

Appropriately for the occasion, all three composers can be said to have been 'migrants' in some way or other. Haydn felt isolated and very unhappy during the years he had to live in rural Hungary at the Esterhazy Estate, Chopin of course was always yearning for the homeland which he could never see again, and Rachmaninov likewise had to leave Russia after the revolution …

~ Haydn: Sonata No.60 in C major Hob.XVI, 50

~ Chopin: Nocturne in F sharp minor Op.48 No.2; Mazurka in C sharp minor Op.50 No. 3; Ballade No.3 in A flat Op.47

~ Rachmaninov: Two Moments Musicaux Op.16: No.1 in B flat minor, No.4 in E minor

Margaret Fingerhut is regarded as one of the UK's most distinguished and poetic pianists, renowned for her exploration of the highways and byways of the repertoire.

As a concerto soloist she has appeared with the London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the London Mozart Players, in major venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall and the Barbican.

She is often heard on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM and many radio stations worldwide.
