net-machine2Bridport Museum are seeking people to help them identify a new and exciting collection of rope and net making machinery as part of their redevelopment plans. The aim to rebuild them and display them in the refurbished museum so visitors can really see how rope and net were made.

You may have heard that we have  entered an exciting phase of re-development which has come about as a result of a bequest from the Sanctuary family of the contents of their museum which was formerly located at Uploders. Part of that bequest consisted of some rope and net machinery which had been dismantled and is now in pieces.

The New Elizabethan Singers will perform Brahms’ “Ein deutsches Requiem” on consecutive Saturdays in February. “Ein deutsches Requiem” was Brahms’ largest single work and his first work for chorus and orchestra. Deeply moving, profound and powerful, its status as one of the greatest monuments of choral music is unchallenged. It is meant primarily as a consolation for mourning survivors, but also contains much hope and blessing for the departed. The closing section of the sixth movement is among his grandest creations. The work was probably inspired by the death of his mother in 1865.
