Paloma Faith, Alison Moyet & Sophie Ellis-Bextor @ Bath Festival Finale Weekend
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
2pm - 10pm

BRIT Award winner Paloma Faith will headline the Saturday night of The Bath Festival Finale Weekend of May 26-27 as an extension to her sell-out summer tour. This follows Tears for Fears having been forced to postpone their sold-out UK tour on doctor’s orders due to unforeseen health concerns.

Lets wish Tears for Fears the quickest recovery so they are soon again performing their past and new songs to appreciative audiences.

Paloma Faith comes to the Saturday night headline of The Bath Festival Finale fresh from her acclaimed Number 1 Gold album ‘The Architect’, which included the singles ‘Crybaby’, ‘Guilty’ and ‘Till I’m Done’. She is one of only two British female artists this decade to have their first three albums go Double Platinum in the UK. ‘The Architect’ was Paloma’s first album in more than three years since giving birth to her first child and became her first UK #1.

Accompanying Paloma, will be special guests, the iconic voices of Alison Moyet and Sophie Ellis-Bextor along with a host of contemporary artists and emerging talent.

Three-times BRIT Award-winner and Grammy-nominee, Alison Moyet, has released 9 solo studio albums with 2017 seeing the release of the critically-acclaimed album ‘Other’, and her biggest world tour for thirty years.

“Revelling in her new-found artistic freedom, Ellis-Bextor is a star”, The Telegraph. The Brit Award nominated singer, songwriter and model came to prominence in the late 90s, reaching number two in the UK Albums Chart with the double platinum selling Read My Lips which spawned three top three singles, including Take Me Home and Murder on the Dancefloor (Europe’s most played song of 2002). Sophie also sang on the universal number 1 Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love), which won the Ericsson Muzik Awards for Best Single and Best Ibiza Tune of 2000. There were three more Top 10 singles that decade before Sophie’s fifth studio album, Wanderlust marked a change in musical direction, rising to number 4 in the UK on its release in 2014, followed by the album Familia in 2016.

Pencil To Paint: Apr - Jun 2018
18th April - 13th June

“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 8 week Pencil To Paint course will be abstraction and we will look at how form, gesture and emotion all play their part in successful picture-making, regardless of genre.
Topics will include:
Line, measurement and proportion
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  18, 25 April; 02, 09, 23, 30 May; 06, 13 June (8 x 1.5 hour sessions)
