Talking about the event Paul Attterbury said, “I am looking forward to sharing stories and anecdotes of my childhood collecting and early interests in antiques, working in publishing, lecturing and writing, canals and railways, and working as a curator at the V&A.  I will also share stories about my time with the Antiques Roadshow.  The evening will be about various passions that have absorbed me (including Dorset), and the series of accidents that have taken me along my personal journey.”

A celebration of Bridport’s Rope and Net Industry

net-makersPlans are gathering speed for Bridport’s first rope and net fair over the weekend of 9th-11th May.  Designed primarily to highlight Bridport’s unique rope making past, it also celebrates the current netting industry. Furthermore, the event is designed to raise much needed funds for the Museum and the Literary and Scientific Institute’s redevelopment project.

Now is the chance for people to get involved in a variety of ways!

For their next concert, The New Elizabethan Singers will return to the great classics when they sing Haydn's "Nelson" Mass and Mozart's "Requiem", accompanied by a full orchestra and professional soloists.

Tickets (£12, under 18s free) available from Bridport Music and Goadsby, both in South St.
