January Events at The Plough

We’re already over a week into 2015, which makes it just over six months since The Plough re-opened! Not wanting to rest on our laurels of course, we’re well into the process of finalising our events calendar for the coming weeks and months of the New Year.

That all starts tonight, with our firstDSC_2987 live music of the year: an Ananda Records showcase featuring a second Plough appearance for Neil Cowlan and Clinton Bowland, followed by debut sets from Emily Fraser and Captain. This is one of our strongest Thursday line-ups to date, and we hope as many of you as possible will be able to join us from 8.30pm in Mandolin.

Then in a week’s time it’s the Preview of the new ‘Stray @ The Plough’ art exhibition. Here’s a word on Stray from our Artists in Residence:

‘Stray’, our inaugural show is the first in a lively programme of art related activities in The Upper Galleries.

Stray itself is is a loose affiliation of professional artists who live in and around Cambridge. Established a couple of years ago, they work in a variety of media and disciplines, ranging from painting and drawing, sculpture and printmaking to photography, film and installation.

We are very excited that Stray will use The Plough as their ‘home’. They see this as an exciting extension of their commitment to bring contemporary art to new audiences and are looking forward to contributing to the full programme of ‘Art at The Plough’ activities over the coming months, including exhibitions, workshops, talks and other art related events.

Meet the Stray artists at the Preview or at one of our Monday evening ‘Art Talk’ sessions, starting Monday 19th January.

DSC_1991The Preview, taking place on Thursday 15th January, will also feature live music from the Hot Numbers Quartet – returning to The Plough for the second time, as well as a set from Steve Logan.

We’re extremely excited to have our art and music programmes kicking off in earnest this year, and will continue to update you all on further details through our email newsletter, as well as via our Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ pages.

And don’t forget that you can recycle your Christmas tree at The Plough this Saturday 10th January from 9.30-11.10am, with hot drinks available throughout as well as recycling and composting advice from local experts.

See you all soon!
