Archæology of Pompeii, David Elkington
Recent discoveries of Roman remains in Somerset have sparked increasing interest in that period. David Elkington returns to the village hall on 12th February to describe the record left by the volcanic eruption at Pompeii, providing outstanding information about Roman life generally.
He will take a brief look at the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, and contrast Pompeii with Herculaneum, which was also buried in the eruption, and with unaffected sites on the other side of the mountain.
A Bristolian, David has taught in Somerset since the 1960s. He studied at Durham, digging at Hadrian's Wall, took a Master's in Roman studies, and gained a scholarship to study and photograph in Rome and Pompeii.
NCS meets on the third Wednesday each month. Annual membership £5; visitors £1. We look forward to welcoming you to our 2020 programme.
Anything Goes is a 1934 musical with music and lyrics by Cole Porter and the original book, a collaborative effort by Guy Bolton and P. G. Wodehouse, The story concerns madcap antics aboard an ocean liner bound from New York to London. Billy Crocker is a stowaway in love with heiress Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and Public Enemy Number 13, “Moonface” Martin, aid Billy in his quest to win Hope. The musical introduced such songs as “Anything Goes”, “You’re the Top”, and “I Get a Kick out of You”. The casting is done, musical numbers are being rehearsed and you might even catch of bit of tap dancing as well. All makes for a good fun evening at North Curry Village Hall. Do look out for advertising and tickets in the New Year, and we look forward to setting sail with you all on board.
