  • Lonely Bouquet - Wantage Flower Club

    May 5, 2017
    Wherever you choose...

    Spread some happiness with flowers in National Flower Arranging Day, the first Friday in May. Wantage Flower Club are taking part in the LONELY BOUQUET campaign. The idea of the campaign is to spread a little joy by leaving a small bouquet, posy or even a single bloom by leaving it for a random stranger to find, perhaps on a seat on the bus even. If you would prefer to simply give a bouquet to someone who has 'made a difference' to your life in a helpful positive way then that is also fine. Last year thousands of bouquets were made and distributed throughout the country. The campaign began in Europe a few years ago to spread happiness with flowers. NAFAS embraced the campaign on Flower Arranging Day- the first Friday in May. This year the WI is also joining NAFAS in this event. Bouquets can be tagged as Wantage Flower Club giving contact details as wantageflowerclub@gmail.com Tags can be downloaded from the NAFAS BB&O area whats on page.

    NAFAS have created a video 'How to create a hand tied bouquet' on youtube if you aren't sure quite where to start. Wantage Flower Club would love to know where your flowers ended up so please share your comments and photos via Wantage Flower Club facebook page or send directly to wantageflowerclub@gmail.com

    We look forward to finding out what happened to your flowers...

    Jude Law (The Young Pope, Closer, The Talented Mr Ripley) stars in the stage production of Obsession, broadcast live from the Barbican Theatre in London. Ivo van Hove (NT Live: A View from the Bridge, Hedda Gabler) directs this new stage adaptation of Luchino Visconti’s 1943 film.

Irresistibly attracted to each other, Gino and Giovanna begin a fiery affair and plot to murder her husband. But, in this chilling tale of passion and destruction, the crime only serves to tear them apart.

    The stage production of Obsession is produced by Barbican Theatre Productions Limited, London and Toneelgroep Amsterdam; co-commissioned by Wiener Festwochen and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg; co-produced by Holland Festival and David Binder Productions; and supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

    National Theatre Live is the best of British theatre broadcast live to The Beacon Cinema.

    Sonia Friedman Productions present Imelda Staunton (Gypsy, Vera Drake, the Harry Potter films), Conleth Hill (Game Of Thrones, The Producers), Luke Treadaway (A Street Cat Named Bob, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, The Hollow Crown) and Imogen Poots (A Long Way Down, Jane Eyre) in James Macdonald’s critically acclaimed, 5 star production of Edward Albee’s landmark play, broadcast live to cinemas from the Harold Pinter Theatre, London.

    In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor and his wife to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.

    ★★★★★
    ‘Imelda Staunton is at her magnificent best. A first-rate revival of an astonishing play.’

    The Guardian

    ★★★★★
    ‘Conleth Hill is superb. Exquisite.’

    Evening Standard

    ★★★★★

    Merson is famous for his vision, silky skills and eye for a goal. He has played under some of the world's most famous managers, including: George Graham, Arsene Wenger, Graham Taylor, Harry Redknapp and Glenn Hoddle, and lining up with some legends of the game: Ian Wright, Tony Adams, David Seaman, Matt Le Tissier, Alan Shearer, David Beckham, Gary Neville. Merson is a much-loved pundit on Sky where his vast experience and larger-than-life personality combine to entertain.

    Hosted by comedian Adger Brown, hear Paul’s stories about the highs and lows of his career in and out of football. After making his debut for Arsenal in the 1986–87 season, Merson played eleven seasons as a key player in the club's success, winning the League Championship twice, the FA Cup, the Football League Cup, and the European Cup Winners' Cup. During such a successful spell, Merson was also battled to overcome an ongoing addiction to alcohol, drugs and gambling.

    In 1997, he joined Middlesbrough in a dream midfield line-up alongside Gascoigne, Emerson and Townsend, helping the club gain promotion to the Premier League. After joining Aston Villa in 1998, Merson went on to become club captain, playing in the 2000 FA Cup Final, the last ever to be held at the original Wembley Stadium. Merson was capped 21 times for the England national football team and represented the nation at the 1992 UEFA European Championship and the 1998 FIFA World Cup.
