Northcott delves into its archive
Posters, programmes, board minutes, photographs and much more from the Exeter Northcott’s archive will be explored to engage in now and look to the future. Dating from 1967 the theatre’s info will convey a range of perspectives of the theatre’s story so far. There will be a number of events and talks inspired by the archive.
Electric planes from Exeter
If all goes to plan, electric planes will be taking off from Exeter to Newquay in the not-too-distance silver-tinged future. A consortium of organisations, including the Heart of the South West LEP, have bid for some money to develop the hybrid flying machine, according to Devon Live.
The short film La Volpe by Plymouth Collage of Art student Yergalem Carimini has been selected for the National Association for Higher Education in Moving Image (NAHEMI) 2020 programme. The film is inspired by tragic events linked to the Taiwanese electrical company Foxconn. It is set in a dystopian future where you live and work in the same space.
Haunted House Party
The Scribes know how to get a joint jumping… and more. And with their razor-sharp raps and jumping beats, their new tune Haunted House Party certainly does that, while reminding us all of when live music was performed in front of an audience. Check out the Listen With Monger review, or pop over to the PRSD.
If your Easter Eggs hardly make it to the bank-holiday Monday, you might be interested in the curate’s egg that Torquay’s Bygones has acquired as an attraction. The Bygoners have got their mitts on what’s claimed to be the World’s Oldest Uneaten Easter Egg. Dating for 1924, the egg was valued at between £200-£300, says Devon Live. The Torquay venue bagged it for a cool £1,040, which warrants its own cabinet, apparently.
