Newport Music Club

Saturday 19th October Cosy Hall 7.30pm


nmc1.pngNewport Music Club brings Clara Schumann to life at Cosy Hall You are probably familiar with the music of Robert Schumann but you may not be as aware of his wife Clara’s major contribution to nineteenth century music both as a prodigy, virtuoso pianist and composer in her own right. All this as well as being the mother of eight children!

Clara’s life and times will be narrated and illustrated in words and music by Reiko Fujisawa and Crawford Logan who bring their acclaimed programme to Newport at 7.30 p.m. on Saturday 23rd November at Cosy Hall. Reiko will play some of Clara’s own compositions and those of her husband Robert, as well as Chopin and her close friend Johannes Brahms.

Based in London, Reiko is a renowned pianist who fuses the sensibilities of a musician raised in the Far East and who trained in the West. With regular performances in London, around the UK and abroad, she has established herself as a formidable virtuoso performer. Crawford has worked for many years in theatres throughout the country and as a voice on radio, he is well-known to BBC listeners as Paul Temple. He has made over a thousand broadcasts and records talking books for RNIB and audiobooks. He also works regularly with musicians such as the Carducci Quartet and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra

Gnosall Heritage Group

Gnosall Heritage Group [GHG] was formed in May 2015 by a small group of individuals from Gnosall who were interested in the history of Gnosall Parish including Moreton, Outwoods and Knightley. Since the inaugural meeting the membership has steadily increased to more than 20.

GHG is a voluntary organisation with membership open to everyone and operates under the umbrella of Gnosall Parish Council. Membership is free.

The aims and objectives of the group are to create and maintain an Archive, with an historical perspective, for Photographs, Documents and Artefacts appertaining to the Parish of Gnosall and its immediate environs thereby providing a resource and reference material for future generations. Typically GHG is interested in: 


h1.pngPast Parish News ▪ Audio/video recordings ▪ Parish documents ▪ Ephemera

A number of detectorists have joined the group recently which adds an extra dimension to the group’s activities and some interesting finds have been made already thanks to the cooperation of individuals and local farmers.

The group holds Open Days biennially and contributes to the GFest activities in alternate years.

The Heritage Group meets every second Friday of the month in the Brearley Room at the Grosvenor Centre at 2pm. If you are interested in joining the group you will be very welcome to attend any of our meetings without obligation. The dates of our next two meetings are - 8th November and 13th December 2019.
