The Garden Cinema


Coffee Morning and Free Film Showing
THURSDAY 24th November 11:00am

Thank you to everyone who requested a free lifetime membership to The Garden Cinema. It was wonderful to receive over fifty requests. The Garden Cinema have invited members of the Dragon Hall to a coffee morning and then stay for a free showing of the A Sense Of History by Mike Leigh, a dark comedy which I enjoyed very much.

If you are interested in taking part in the FREE event and seeing this beautiful cinema, please complete the link below:-

Royal College of Music


Chamber Spotlight: Appalachian Spring
Wednesday 9th November 2022, 7:30pm

Hear chamber music favourites alongside works you might not know in Chamber Plus, with this concert inspired by American landscapes.

Copland’s enduringly popular Appalachian Spring, containing the recognisable ‘Shaker’ melody, tells the story of a group of American pioneers in this 1944 version written for 13 instruments. Alongside Dvořák’s String Quintet no 3, composed during a summer he spent in Iowa, is music from American composers Leonard Bernstein and Caroline Shaw – the youngest composer to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music at the age of just 30.

I have six FREE tickets – please complete the form below:

And Finally…

If you need to contact me, please contact me only on this mobile number 07759 646507.
Please do not visit me at Dragon Hall. I work at different venues throughout the week and I might not be there.

It is essential that all events/workshops or classes are booked in advance. Dragon Hall is still following social distancing guidelines and most sessions are now fully booked. If you would like to attend an event, please ALWAYS contact me beforehand.

Please note that all payments for classes are paid online via our website. If you have any difficulty with this, I am happy to assist. But again, this must be done beforehand and booked with me.


Thank you for your support and cooperation.
