    • Location: Farnham Library, Vernon House, 28 West Street, Farnham, Surrey, GU9 7DR
    • Cost: £10

    As part of Body in the Library, Surrey Libraries' inaugural festival of crime writing, join us at Farnham Library where we welcome Nicola Upson for the evening.

    Nicola Upson's crime novels featuring the author Josephine Tey have been praised as 'historical crime fiction at its very best' (Sunday Times) and 'a masterstroke of literary theft' (Independent on Sunday).

    Set in the 1930's, they weave original murder mysteries around a celebration of Tey's life and work, bridging the Golden Age and the contemporary.

    The latest, 'Nine Lessons', takes readers from Cambridge to the Suffolk coast, following a series of audacious murders inspired by M.R. James' famous ghost stories; the book has been shortlisted for the 2018 CWA Historical Dagger and was a Publisher's Weekly Best Mystery of 2017 Nicola Upson will be joining the staff at Farnham Library for the inaugural Body in the Library, Festival of Crime Writing, running from the end of October and throughout November.

    The festival offers a series of talks and book signings with some of today's foremost crime writers.

  • Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (PG)

    • Friday, 30 November 2018 at 20:00 - 22:30
    • Location: Cinema - Borough Hall Godalming
    • Cost: Adults - £7.50, Children - £3.50, Concessions - £6.50

    When Sophie suddenly finds herself pregnant, she journeys into her mother’s past to unearth the answers to some burning questions.

    Mamma Mia! Here we go again

     

    10 years after Mamma Mia! and Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is back on the sun-drenched Greek island of Kalokairi, however, her circumstances are a little different this time. Now pregnant, Sophie is struggling to find the knowledge and strength to move on to the most important chapter in her life.

    Searching for inspiration, she retraces her mother Donna’s (Meryl Streep) steps from the past in the hope of finding the courage to be the best mum she can be. We then flashback in time to a young Donna (Lily James) back in 1979, who is enjoying the prime time of her life, singing in a band and dating a familiar trio of gentleman, named Sam (Jeremy Irvine), Harry (Hugh Skinner) and Bill (Josh Dylan).

    Back in the present day, Sophie is wondering if she is about to discover which of her three possible fathers is the real deal.

  • Lumiere: the beautiful light

    • Saturday, 10 November 2018 - Saturday, 5 January 2019 at 10:00 - 17:00
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
    • Cost: Free

    Irresistible hand-crafted lighting and illuminated artworks make a wonderful festive statement this season. We explore all facets of lighting where sculpture, colour and form meet.

    Hannah_Nunn_Lamps_153Our intimate Balcony Gallery will be full to the rafters with beautiful pieces which can easily fit into home environments. We are careful to note the power of light as a medium in its own right, where light and shade create shadows and the colour and textures of shadow shifting with each piece create physically powerful works that take on the appearance of sculptural forms in space.

    Visitors are encouraged to move freely around the space to take the lighting pieces in from all angles.

    Presenting pieces by: Clio Anastasiou, Nichola Bendall - Words Ink, Dobby and Rose, Liv Cornall, Adele Goulty, Denis di Luca, Hannah Nunn, Liz Scrine, Surrey Woodsmiths and Meryl Till.
