Climate change and increasing energy costs will alter our way of life - how we work, shop, travel and live will need to adapt.
Transition Lostwithiel is about using our own creativity and talent to build a closer and more resilient community for everyone to enjoy. It's about making a transition from an unsustainable way of life to a sustainable one.
Rafters Acoustic Sessions - Starts: Wednesday 8th April 7.30pm. Players, singers, listeners all welcome. These regular acoustic music nights aim to:
- Give amateur musicians the chance to perform in a friendly, supportive environment, and to develop their musical skills and confidence.
- Offer an opportunity to meet and get to know other fellow performers.
- Provide an enjoyable evening of entertainment for music lovers who want to come along and just listen.
Although these sessions are titled ‘Acoustic’, this term really describes the instruments. There will in fact be a PA system/ mikes/ mixer to plug into. Players are free to choose whether or not to plug in instruments and use microphones. Note - These are not Jam Sessions, unless a performer invites others to join in.
Venue: The Rafters Bar, Lostwithiel Community Centre. £2 Entrance Fee to cover costs. Licensed Bar.
Plant Swap - starts in St Barts Churchyard from Saturday April 18th 10-12 and then every Saturday morning (unless it's torrential) until Sep/Oct. Come and swap your extra seedlings or cuttings... pick up a plant or seeds for a donation.
