The Art of Rural Life- Exhibition @ The Corn Hall
Jan 16 @ 10:00 am – Mar 9 @ 4:00 pm

THE ART OF RURAL LIFE- Free exhibition in the Main Gallery

Venue: The Corn Hall

Living in rural England we form a unique perception of the relationship between home and landscape. What may be extraordinary to someone from a city may seem common-place to someone who lives in the countryside. Tractors on roads, hedgerows abundant with fruit, fields ploughed in the evening sunset. Sometimes tranquil, sometimes isolating – it is all part of the art of rural life.

The agricultural environment has been inspiring artists through the generations. This exhibition includes works by a diverse range of artists who have been influenced by rural life.

WORKING THE LAND BY HAND- An Exhibition in the Upper Gallery

16th – 23rd February 2019

10am-4pm FREE

Venue: The Corn Hall

Agriculture has long been a mainstay of Diss and the local area, with a rich tradition of handcrafted tools. On display, in collaboration with Diss Museum, are a collection of implements used to work the land by hand; before machines were developed to do the work more quickly and efficiently. The function of several of the tools showcased in the exhibition is now a mystery, with vital information having been lost over the years. Can you help identify any of these handcrafted tools?

Regular exercise is the best anti-ageing medicine you can give yourself.

A body in motion tends to stay in motion and the team at Plates East Anglia firmly believe that including some Pilates practise into your weekly routine can help improve posture, muscle tone, balance and joint health.

Clinical Pilates is now well recognised in the medical world – consultants, surgeons and GP’s regularly advise patients to undertake Pilates exercise, many health professionals consider it one of the best forms of exercise for pre-surgery preparation and post surgery recovery.

Our instructors are trained to help you use specialised equipment during the courses to help you monitor and improve your lumbar stability, one of the main ways to reduce and manage back pain.

As Pilates is a mind and body exercise requiring concentration, focus and breath control, it can also be beneficial in relieving stress and aiding relaxation.

We have different levels to suit from complete beginner to advanced inclucing Pilates Barre classes.

We also offer catch-up classes so if you are sick or away no need to miss out!

Venue: The Corn Hall

Directed by Paul Wright, UK, 1hr 18mins, 2018

Combining over 100 years of archive film, BAFTA award winning director Paul Wright constructs an exhilarating study of the British people’s shifting —  and contradictory — relationship to the land,  going on a sensory journey through the contrasting seasons, taking in folk carnivals and fetes, masked parades, water divining and harvesting.

Set to a grand, expressive new score alongside folk music, this captivating film captures the beauty, brutality, magic and madness of rural Britain.

1hr 40 mins including interval

Production Company: The Book of Darkness & Light
Venue: The Corn Hall

Written & performed by Adam Z Robinson with live music by Ben Styles

As intimate and cosy as it is hair-raising, this trio of delightfully thrilling ghost stories – set to the haunting sounds of the violin – is a riveting and creepy storytelling experience.

The Book of Darkness & Light contains within it some of the most chilling tales ever told. Supernatural mysteries stir from its pages. You feel a prickle on your neck. Your blood stills. A monstrous thing creeps in the shadows. Is it all in your mind? Tricks of the light? Or something far more sinister?

“A gripping, ghostly tale” Leeds Living

Recommended for age 14+
