Nicholas Charles Williams
Open Studio, Old Lifeboat Station, Towan Head, Newquay, Cornwall, TR7 1HS
24 September 2011
The studio of figurative painter Nicholas Charles Williams will be open to the public on Saturday, 24th September, 2011. The open day will give visitors an opportunity to see inside one the UK’s most unique artist’s studios, Newquay’s former lifeboat station, and view new works in the setting they were made.
Williams’ practice of working in a darkened studio with a single light source is ideally suited to the cavernous space of the lifeboat house. Local people, many from the surfing community have visited the studio to act as models for almost for two decades.
The lifeboat station stands alone on Towan Head, Newquay, Cornwall and is flanked by the sea on both sides. It was built in 1899 and played a crucial role in Newquay’s maritime history with the crews saving over 140 lives. The station had the steepest slip in the British Isles and remained active until 1935.

Cultural Baton's visit to Shorne Woods Country Park
26 February 2011
The Kent Cultural Baton has invited Bridgette Ashton to hold a special Monkey Puzzle planting ceremony in Shorne Woods Country Park, near Gravesend.
The tiny Araucaria Araucana seedling will be introduced to an area of the forest which acknowledges and celebrates the woods’ close proximity to the A2 as well as the park’s ancient and contemporary histories. The sapling will become a future landmark of the park, as an ornamental mark of the exotic in the otherwise classic ‘Garden of England’ scenery.
At the same time, artists Jacob Cartwright & Nick Jordan will be making work inside the woods, celebrating its significance in Kent
Ashton's planting ceremony will form part of her ongoing Monkey Puzzle Tree Club project concerning the identification of clusters of Monkey Puzzle Trees across the country.

The tree planting event on Saturday 26th February will be marked by the launch of an accompanying illustrated limited-edition zine book available for free to visitors on the day.
