Jeni & Billy


Nashville-based Appalachian Folk duo, Jeni & Billy, sing the hard-knock stories of life from the Virginia coalfields to the streets of Baltimore, from West Texas desert to the red clay of North Carolina.

Billy, a virtuoso instrumentalist who honed his skills on the Grand Ole Opry and backing up folk legends including Tom Paxton, creates the perfect musical setting for Jeni's enchanting and sometimes heartbreaking lyrics.
As Paul Kerr of Blabber & Smoke writes, Jeni & Billy's collaboration is "stunning for anyone into Old Time Americana."

Lunchtime Lectures with Tim Tubbs

Join Tim Tubbs in the handsome, panelled Sitwell Library at Woodend for more enjoyable Tuesday lunchtime lectures on popular historical and literary subjects. 


"HISTORY MOST FOUL" September 2016
Probe the murky depths of British history's most famous murderous mysteries...
...and decide for yourself "whodunit?"


The Princes in the Tower (6th September)
Was Richard III really guilty of having his royal nephews murdered in the Tower of London, or was there a Tudor cover-up, later reinforced by Shakespeare? It all depends who gets to write the history...

An Accident in the New Forest (13th September)
William the Conqueror's son William II ("Rufus") was killed in 1100 by a stray arrow while hunting in the New Forest. "Divine justice!" said the monkish chroniclers. A fatal accident? Or was a more sinister agency at work?

Lady Dudley Falls Down a Staircase (20th September)
In the insecure early years of Elizabeth I's reign, speculation was rife that the "heretic queen" would marry her handsome favourite Lord Robert Dudley...except that he already had a wife. And then, suddenly, Amy Dudley fell down a staircase and died, creating an international scandal.

The Guilty Queen of Scots? (27 September)
In 1566, Edinburgh was awoken by an explosion that destroyed the Provost's Lodging in Kirk o' Field where Queen Mary's estranged consort Lord Darnley was convalescing. When his strangled body was discovered, Mary's reputation was ruined. Had the Queen conspired to murder an unwanted husband?


Tickets £5 (£4 concession) 
Book for series of four lectures at £15 (£12 concessions)

Lunchtime Lectures with Tim Tubbs

Join Tim Tubbs in the handsome, panelled Sitwell Library at Woodend for more enjoyable Tuesday lunchtime lectures on popular historical and literary subjects. 


"NOTORIOUS" October 2016
A series of talks on four very different personalities, from four different centuries, who shared a reputation for genius, celebrity, outrage and  - always - notoriety. 
  

Rochester, the Libertine Poet (4th October)
The flamboyant and dashing John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester (1647-1680), renowned for his irreverent wit and often pornographic poetry, blazed a trial through the court of Charles II, the greatest libertine of the Restoration. 

Casanova, the Great Lover (11th October)
The life of Giacomo Casanova (1725-1798), the world's most famous lover, offers a fascinating insight into the 18th century. The Venetian adventurer and writer was a clergyman, soldier, musician, gambler, lawyer and inveterate traveller.

Oscar Wilde, the Daring Wit (18th October)
Famous for his outrageous wit, the irish playwright, poet, novelist and poseur Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) cut a dash through late Victorian society, before his self-destructive streak turned fame into notoriety, disgrace and tragedy.

Aleister Crowley, "The Beast" (25th October)
Painter, novelist, mountaineer, occultist, self-declared magician and prophet, Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) lived life to the full, contentious, destructive, eccentric and charismatic...definitely "mad, bad and dangerous to know"!


Tickets £5 (£4 concession) 
Book for series of four lectures at £15 (£12 concessions)
