There Be (81) Dragons in Guildford Cathedral.

And in more respects than one. On Saturday we attended a fundraiser for Multiple Sclerosis at Guildford Cathedral and were confronted by 80 dragons (before we lost count!) of the Pontarddulais Male Choir. If you have never heard a Welsh Male Voice Choir live then you have yet to experience a true wall of sound. I wish I could find a track of their Welsh Anthem for you, but there is another Welsh piece on the music box for you to enjoy. Guildford Cathedral is also hosting a wonderful needlework exhibition by the Wey Valley Workshop, which accounts for the 81st dragon. Small but Beautifully Formed is the title of the Wey Valley Workshop exhibition which will be in the Cathedral from 11 May – 4 June 2010. Wey Valley is a group of renowned stitched textile artists from the south of England, and was founded in the early 1980’s by Vicky Lugg and several other City & Guilds tutors. It consists of colleagues and fellow mixed media artists & embroiderers. Several of the members have collected over the year some wonderful embroidery from all over the world. If you are in the neighborhood do pop in to see their work. I am coveting a biscornu evening bag.....
