Impromptu culture enhancing your stay

16 November 2011 / Arts / Culture

It’s great that we have had so many cultured visitors over the last few months all adding an extra something to the social ambience of an independent hostel.

This can bring an unexpected extra element to an evening spent here. Our piano in particular is often put to good use, both instrumental and with vocals. We’ve been very impressed at the talent coaxing life out of our out of tune piano.

We’ve had several artists staying with us including Mark America undertaking a research leg in Cumbria as part of his development for a new mobile phone film project to be aired at Abandon Normal Devices in 2012.

Also poets courtesy of The Wild Women Press preparing for their Naked Muse Calendar in aid of the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation)

Michael J Smith

Also a group of musicians from Holland here in the UK to play music by and in memory of Michael J Smith inspired by Wordsworth’s ‘The Prelude’.

Plus The Sakhioba Ensemble a traditional folk and church choir from Georgia (The Eastern European one).
