Trio Sōra Ilminster Arts Centre Trio Sōra ( Pauline Chenais piano, Magdalēna Geka violin, Angèle Legasa cello ) founded in 2015 at the Paris Conservatoire by three talented young women - Pauline Chenais, Magdalena Geka and Angele Legasa - Trio Sōra has literally soared to fame despite having only played together for three years. This is due in no small measure to their rigorous schedule of rehearsals and competitions, which has helped them reach their current level of excellence. Awards have been reaped along the way, including the Parkhouse Award in April 2017, as well as a number of French and International awards. They were also appointed HSBC Lauréates of the Festival d’Aix Academy 2017 and Lauréate of the Special Prize of the Verbier Festival Academy 2018. But what is really impressive is the strength and sensitivity they use to interpret chamber music. Playing with both warmth and energy, Trio Sōra is now considered an ensemble with a distinct artistic identity. Box Office: 01460 54973 9.30am-4.30pm Monday to Friday www.themeetinghouse.org.uk Tickets: £15. Bar and café, IAC and town parking, plus car parks, disabled access. 15/02/2019 7.30pm £15

Three One Act Plays Warehouse Theatre, Ilminster We are thrilled to have three new directors for this venture and do hope that you will support them by coming on Monday. The three plays are as follows: Andrew Carson has chosen to direct: Thank You for Protesting by Paul Adam Levy. A high-tempo comedy on the subject of a citizen’s right to protest, full of satire and quick-fire dialogue. When a local government worker is tasked with replacing “a thing” on a street with another “thing”, a nearby resident takes it upon herself to put a stop to it in a civilised, law-abiding and dignified manner. When a younger, more eager protester steps in with a more direct approach, all three are caught up in a farce of protesting rights and housing policy when the worker’s boss shows up and starts flexing her administrative might. Characters: Resident - a middle aged woman, ‘Daily Mail’ reader, likes the idea of the ‘big society’, but isn’t quite sure what it means, avid member of the neighbourhood watch Worker - a young man, not too interested in his work, but respectful towards authority Protester – a young woman, new-age hippy type, doesn’t respect the establishment or anyone who disagrees with her ideals Boss – a middle aged woman, a cut-throat clipboard-wielder with a smile Michael Wills has chosen to direct: The Death of Sherlock Holmes by Richard James Holmes and Watson must act fast to prevent the theft of a famous diamond and safeguard the economy of the Austrian Empire. But does Holmes mean to get shot by Watson? Will the Great Detective survive? There are two characters: Holmes and Watson Our third offering is to be directed by Richard Tingley: A Resounding Tinkle by N F Simpson It would be wrong to say nothing surprises the Paradocks, Bro and Middie. It's just that they take in their stride the things that would surprise us. The elephant in their garden, for instance, has actually been ordered, but this year the shop has made a mistake and sent the wrong size. The arrival of Uncle Ted does cause Middie to raise her eyebrows momentarily, for he has become bored with being a he and is now an elegantly dressed young woman. Their social habits are different from ours and their talk satirizes the life of suburbia, and in the intervals, turns a mildly disconcerting eye on all of us. Characters: One male and two female 20/02/2019 TBA TBA

Minster Milers' Mash 2019 Archie Gooch Pavilion, Britten's Field, Ilminster TA19 9FE Welcome to the inaugural running of the Minster Milers' Mash 10k, which will take place on Sunday 30th June 2019 at 10a.m. This will be a fun yet demanding course for all abilities around the historic market town of Ilminster and the surrounding area, including the stunning private estate of Dillington House. The measured, multi-terrain course will start and end at the Archie Gooch Pavilion, Canal Way, Ilminster and is mainly on road and rolling country lanes. There is just 2.4km (1.5 miles) on playing fields (short grass), farm track and across a field edge. Starting from the Pavilion playing field beneath Herne Hill the first half mile climbs up Britten's Field and out of Ilminster before joining the public road for a gentle climb towards Kingstone. Turning left back toward Ilminster there is a descent on a busier road leading to a farm track before crossing the Ilminster to Seavington road. Runners cross a field track before taking to the private tarmac roads of Dillington Estate (with some cattle grids to negotiate!). You are then greeted by the beautiful Dillington House as your backdrop before hitting a steep path out of the Estate and up to the Ilminster Beacon, the highest point on the route. Heading downhill you will arrive back in Ilminster town centre, again taking to footpaths and roads through the town before winding your way along Canal Way and returning to the finishing line at the Archie Gooch Pavilion. There will be a first aid and water station at approximately 4.5km and the route will be fully marked in kilometres and miles with marshals at key points along the route. A full event risk assessment has been completed for your safety.
