Festival 2023: Changing Times - FlipSide @ 10
Saturday 23 September, Yew Tree Farm
Standard tickets £80+ Eventbrite booking fee
with Low Income ticket options for £25+ booking fee
Yes, the times they certainly are a-changin’, and everywhere we can see it, but maybe the old questions are just dressing in new clothes: what really matters, what does justice look like, and equality and value? Where is home, and belonging? How do we live in balance with each other and the planet? Can art and culture help us in our search?
To explore these questions, we will be joined by authors and thinkers including Adam Feinstein, Ann Pettifor, Dan Edelstyn, Diana Quick, Gabriel Weston, Hilary Powell, John-Paul Stonard, Penny Campling and Timothy O’Grady.
From poetry to painting, from the hearth to health, and from energy to emigration, this year’s Flipside Festival checks its own pulse as it enters double figures and asks you to join us in its investigations with significant anniversaries from the last 75 years as its prompts, and a constellation of energising guests from across the arts, literature, medicine and social action.
Hosted in a strikingly converted barn, in a beautiful Suffolk setting, it promises to be a day of informing, inspiring and illuminating encounters.
With an intimate salon environment to enhance the experience, please do book your tickets at your earliest opportunity. Tickets are £80 + booking fee, which includes tea, coffee and cakes.
Ruby Colley, presented by FlipSide and musicroom
Friday 22 September, Yew Tree Farm
Tickets £13+ booking fee
Join us on the eve of FlipSide for a special performance from accomplished violinist and composer Ruby Colley.
Known for creating complex soundscapes from string instruments and electronically processed recordings, Ruby's violin style traces a journey from baroque (Bach being her first love), through contemporary classical, to folk and improvisation.
She will be presenting work from her recent album Overheard, accompanied by Lucy Mulgan on double bass.
Tickets for Ruby's performance are £13 + booking fee
