Events in September

On one side of the border, there's h.Art coming up from 6th to the 14th September, with open studios, exhibitions and workshops all over Herefordshire. Right here in Hay we have the Caemawr Studio opening, on the lane down to the Offa's Dyke path near the car park, and opposite the Castle. There's a picture of Hay Castle, painted by Gaynor Funnell, in the brochure, along with a portrait by Eugene Fisk. Other artists are Sarah Putt, Mary Simpson and Tracy Thursfield - all of them worth a look.
Meanwhile in Glasbury, at the River Cafe, Sophie Windham is exhibiting her paintings, and in Clifford at Walkers Cottage there are paintings and drawings by Veronique Avon, Ellie Ling, and Martina Jirankova-Limbrick. They're doing refreshments in the cottage garden, too.
Also in Clifford is Chris Armstrong, the furniture maker, sharing The Workshop at Paddock House with Benjamin Hills, and over the river in Brilley is Maureen Richardson with her paper and jewellery from found materials.
And in Brecknock at the same time, it's History Week. Hay is taking part in this over the weekend of 5th to the 7th September, with a showing of the film Resistance, and several World War I and II events, as well as vintage stalls, a Hay Castle open day and a pop-up museum.
And later in the month, we will have visitors from Timbuktu again, in the shape of the Malian Honorary Consul. There will also be a film night at the Globe, and shops around town are being asked to have Malian themed windows, as they did last September (I wonder where those Malian flags went....).
