ArtWorks Valleys Cinema presents the ‘BFG’

the_bfg_poster

Monday 12th December, 5pm, Soar Centre, Penygraig.

Ten-year-old Sophie is in for the adventure of a lifetime when she meets the Big Friendly Giant. Naturally scared at first, the young girl soon realizes that the 24-foot behemoth is actually quite gentle and charming. As their friendship grows, Sophie’s presence attracts the unwanted attention of Bloodbottler, Fleshlumpeater and other giants. After traveling to London, Sophie and the BFG must convince Queen Elizabeth to help them get rid of all the bad giants once and for all.

Join us for our last event of the season which is certain to leave you feeling all warm and Christmassy.

The Little Match Seller

lms-poster-finalwebArtworks would like to invite you to the first production by our Penygraig Drama Workshop. These children are aged 8 – 12 and their commitment, passion and dedication to their show is admirable. They have been working tirelessly with their support worker Caroline Bunce to bring you their take on Hans Christian Anderson ‘the LIttle Match Seller’

The performance takes us on a journey of a little girl who is sent out into the freezing cold nights to sell her tapers. She freezes near to death for fear of the punishment should she go home with no money for the family.  One night her beloved Nana appears from the stars and we see the little match seller find her happy place once more.

We would love to show you our story so please join us in Soar Centre at 7pm on Saturday 29th October. We will be serving refreshments after the show and holding a raffle to support the development of ArtWorks and Valleys Kids.

To book your free tickets in advance or to donate a raffle prize please contact Emma@valleyskids.org or call us on 01443 303032

We look forward to seeing you and showing off our stars.

Crow Fall by Maxine Ridge

ArtWorks are so proud to be able to support our very own Maxine Ridge with the launch of her second novel Crow Falls.  We have no idea where she finds the time but we are so blessed to be able to call her one of ours!

They found a doorway to another world.

It has been two years since Robyn and her friends broke the barriers across time and space, but the memories have faded to stories, supernaturally forgotten.

When Robyn falls for someone who doesn’t love her back, heartbroken, she finds solace in parallel world Corvus.

Robyn’s friends need her back – their world is falling apart: the flu pandemic closes down the borders between countries and the terrifying Golden Army draws ever closer and although life in Corvus is sweet, there are whispers on the wind of an uprising of the Earth Born against the First Born.

Crow watches from afar as the end of time hurtles towards them.

You are invited to the book launch of Crow Fall
at The Factory, Porth, CF39 9PP
Friday 30th September 2016 7pm.
Free entry.

After the successful launch of Maxine Ridge’s debut novel When the Crow Cries, Maxine is bringing the sequel Crow Fall to The Factory.

The event includes readings by internationally-famed Mab Jones and Wales’s new and exciting crime writer Victoria Jenkins; an exhibition of the book illustrations by Rhondda-based artist Gayle Rogers; free wine and light refreshments; and music by Tom Stupple’s fantastic folk band Fountainhead. Music albums, reduced-price books and limited edition prints available for purchase.

7.00pm     Doors open.
7.15pm     Readings and Music
8.15pm     Refreshments; Illustrations Exhibition; Book Shop open
8.45pm     Fountainhead
9.30pm    End

Hope you can make it!

Trebanog – Get ready for us!

It’s Art But It’s Not is very happy to announce the re-opening of Rhiwgarn Infant School in Trebanog, with a programme of activities taking place from the 24th of August to the 2nd of September, led by the Welsh artist Owen Griffiths.

Local residents are invited to join artists, partners and designers exploring ideas related to seasons, food and making. The aim behind the inaugural two-weeks of activities is to spark transformation and reintroduce the community to a forgotten place, giving them the space and the tools to make it their own.

Activities designed by the artist Owen Griffiths include bread and pizza making, in a clay oven especially installed for the use of the community.

We’re open

Week 1 – August 24, 25 & 27

Week 2 – August 31st & September 1st

Morning Sessions 11am – 12.30pm (Lunch Provided)

Afternoon Sessions 2pm – 4pm

Evening Sessions 4 – 5.30pm (Dinner Provided)

There will also be a special celebration and surprise on Friday 2nd September….  We look forward to seeing you there. Rhiwgarn Infants School, Waun Wen, Porth, CF39 9LX

‘Changed’

Changed Poster Soar

Sunday 14th August, 7pm Soar Centre, Penygraig, CF40 1JZ

In a small town, buried amongst the hills, a young boy named Phil wakes up one morning to discover he’s changed! Bewildered and terrified by his appearance, he fears his family won’t recognise him! He spends the play tormented by his thoughts both cruel and kind.

Having discovered Phil, the family is horrified by what they see! His father, unable to recognise him and worried he might be vicious; forces him back into his room.

Phil’s younger sister Eira protests that it’s Phil! She gives him hope that in time others will see it’s really him too! 

The Change is a dark, comical and emotive story that explores what it means to be to be truly human? Set against the backdrop of a seedy circus, with stunning physical theatre, it is a terrifyingly real story told in a beautifully imagined way.

Originally Devised by Tonyrefail Nurture group and Adapted by Penygraig Youth Theatre. Written and Directed by Claire Hathway

Kafka’s story told in our own unique way!
