Sat 23 Feb: Electrical items for next week's Bring & Take

The Bring & Take is next Saturday on 2 March but please bring your plug-in electrical items this Saturday to Janet's house at 23 The Green between 11am and 12 noon ONLY (no other time please). This will enable them to be PAT-tested in advance and made available next week - this is because there are usually too many to be PAT-tested on the day itself. Please do not bring old-style big TVs, no-one wants them and they need to be taken direct to Dix Pit for recycling.

Organised by Charlbury Green Hub.

Sat 23 Feb: Southill Solar thatch removal

Happy days are here again, in the form of another great opportunity to spend an hour or so in the fresh air listening to the early larks ascending at Southill Solar, whilst helping us to improve the biodiversity at Southill on Saturday morning, 10 am- 12 noon!

We have to remove the ‘thatch’ that has been created by a late season mowing of our lovely meadow, next to the beehives, so that our wildflowers can flourish again, so if you have lawn rakes/ leaf rakes (not conventional garden rakes, please) that you could bring along and utilise in raking the thatch up and moving it to less damaging margins of the site, we would love to see you. We will be at the car park at 10am, with gloves and rakes at the ready. If you arrive later then walk over the north field (in the direction of Charlbury) to the beehive area to find us!

Fri 1 Mar: World Day of Prayer

The World Day of Prayer is a global ecumenical movement led by Christian women. This year women in Slovenia have prepared a service on the theme 'Come - everything is ready'. In Charlbury the service will be held on Friday 1st March at 11am in the Baptist Church, Dyers Hill. Everyone is welcome - men as well as women!

The art work is by the Slovenian artist Rezka Arnus. It represents a table laid for a celebration with typical Slovenian food. The people at the top of the picture are enjoying a party but those at the bottom represent people who are often marginalised in society. The picture illustrates a parable from St Luke's Gospel in which wealthy people refused an invitation to a feast and poor people living on the streets were invited in their place. Rezka uses her art to combine traditional figures with inner thoughts and feelings.

Tue 16 Apr: A Charlbury Festival Fundraising Event

Backing into the Limelight: The Enigma of Lawrence of Arabia

Friends Meeting House 7.30
£5 on the door

This talk is in advance of a performance of Shadow of the Desert, a radio play by David Lines which, after a very successful run in Stonesfield last year, is being staged on 15 June as part of the Charlbury Arts Festival.

The speakers are David Lines and Becki Sherlaw-Johnson (the play's director).

Many of us know something about T.E. Lawrence, usually from seeing David Lean's film Lawrence of Arabia. Perhaps you have managed to read Lawrence's famous book Seven Pillars of Wisdom, widely regarded as a definitive work when attempting to understand the Middle East, but who was this enigmatic hero and icon?

As we researched and prepared the script, we found a brilliant Oxford scholar, archaeologist, tactician and adventurer alongside a shy, very private man who lived the life of an ascetic. The popular image of Lawrence revolves round two intense years of fighting in the desert, behind that lies a man who was, and largely remains, an enigma despite the many attempts that have been made to understand who and what he was.

This talk aims to shed some light on both the man and the influences and politics that inspired him.

Sat 15 Jun: Shadow of the Desert

Memorial Hall 7.30

Shadow of the Desert - What happened to Lawrence after Arabia?

Written by David Lines

Directed by Becki Sherlaw-Johnson

T. E. Lawrence achieved international celebrity almost as soon as he returned from the desert. Thanks to his work attempting to create an independent Arab state he also created enemies in the establishment. But haunted by his experiences in the desert, and considering Lawrence of Arabia to be a failure, Lawrence sought to escape the icon he had become.

With the threat of another war growing; media harassment, politics, government agents, doomed relationships and a man who cannot escape his past, contribute to a powerful play about personal freedom.

David Lines’ critically acclaimed radio play will be performed as if for a live recording and there will be an exhibition about Lawrence’s life in the bar.

‘A crunchy, rolling, crisp and exciting play.’
