From Friday 28th – Sunday 30th November King Street Gallery in Carmarthen is presenting a weekend of music, dance, literature and light refreshments to get Christmas Exhibition off to a flying start.
The event gets off to a musical start on Friday 28th from 5pm to 7.30pm. Llandeilo tenor Andrew Douglas-Forbes will sing solo and then later be joined by Côr Plygain Llandeilo Fawr, to sing a selection of traditional Plygain carols.
Dance will be the central attraction on Saturday. Charlotte Leadbeater’s ‘Working with Movement’ workshop, which runs from 10am to 4pm, will feature Ballet Russe ballerina Guzel Gareeva as model. The dancer will use music from ‘La Bayadere’ in the morning and ‘Carmen’ in the afternoon as part of the live drawing class, which will be open to public view. There will also be music from cellist Carys Donahue Davies, who will be playing various classical pieces throughout the afternoon.
On Sunday the central theme for the day will be the written word. Artists from the gallery will be presenting readings on seasonal themes from some of their favourite books and poems.
Seasonal refreshments including mulled wine, mince pies, and selection of homemade cakes, will be on offer throughout the weekend.
The event will run from 5pm to 7.30pm on Friday, 12am to 4pm on Saturday and on Sunday.
