Subject: Doc Rowe, Guildford 20/10/06
On Friday,20th October 2006 at 8pm the Music Institute Club in Guildford will be hosting Doc Rowe and his illustrated talk "Blood Booze and Bedlam".

For anyone who has not come across him before, Doc is one of the country's leading authorities on the traditional customs of Britain, and its foremost chronicler and archivist. His photographs, videos and sound recordings of our traditions are second to none and this illustrated talk will launch a two week exhibition of his pictures at the Guildford Institute. The richness, colour and variety of Britain's seasonal events is often over-looked, ignored or quite simply unknown. You can expect this presentation, with photographic and video examples from Doc's own archive, to be both lively, stimulating and surprising!

The evening includes a preview of the two-week exhibition at the Guildford Institute of Doc's photographs of the traditional customs of the British Isles.

Admission £9.00 - Members £7.50 (Tickets are limited to 50 in total, and are already selling fast)

I recall seeing this presentation several years ago at Tate Britain, and can heartily recommend it personally!
