Winter Words Festival- 27 January – 5th February – Now in its 8th year. A celebration of the written and spoken word, including…..
“Sir Chris Bonnington returns to Winter Words with some breathtaking images to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his first ascent of the north face of the Eiger. He will also recount his involvement in the dramatic story of extreme climbing – to say nothing of the media circus! – involved in the first ascent of the Eiger Direct in the winter of 1966. “
“Another Winter Words favourite is Neil Oliver whose latest book, A History of Ancient Britain, accompanies the hugely successful TV series of the same name. The multi-talented historian, archaeologist, author and TV broadcaster will share the secrets of the series and demonstrate his passion for the magic of this country’s ancient past.”
Iolanthe – Sunday 12 Feb – presented by the Dunfermline Gilbert and Sullivan Society. A classic G&S opera including much loved favourites such as When I Went To The Bar;The Law Is The True Embodiment, The Nightmare Song and When Britain Really Ruled The Waves. Should be fun. I love G&S!
The Craig McMurdo Quartet – Tuesday 14th February – “Craig McMurdo is renowned as one of theUK’s finest crooners. Frequently compared in the press to Harry Connick Jnr. and Michael Bublé, and often described as a “one man Rat Pack”, he performs an eclectic mix of romantic jazz standards, lounge and swing, imbued with his characteristic warmth and humour. ”
Tenors Un Limited – Friday 2nd March – “Tenors Un Limited combine their own blend of unique vocal arrangements with wit and immense charm to create fresh approaches to operatic standards, classical crossover, Rat Pack classics and original compositions.”
