Trial by Jury – Gilbert & Sullivan

The first G&S collaboration resulted in a timeless comedy of the sexes (and a send-up of the judicial system) in which a jilted girl sues her ex for Breach of Promise. Her award is something rather more than she bargained for…

[about 40 minutes]

The Parting – words by Federico García Lorca, music by Edward Lambert

A surreal moment – a dream, perhaps? – when Enrique leaves home and heads for the mountains. As he bids farewell to his loving wife, an old coachman appears and offers his assistance. The first performance of a short new opera for three singers.

[about 15 minutes]

In Windsor Forest – Vaughan Williams

A choral cantata from Vaughan William’s opera Sir John in Love first performed in 1929. The composer himself wrote the libretto drawn from Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor.

[about 10 minutes]

Following their successful appearance in Hungerford last year, The Music Troupe presents an evening of English opera, old and new, comic and serious. An excellent cast is joined by the Newbury Chamber Choir.

Tai Chi/Qi Gong @ The Wellbeing Centre
Oct 16 @ 9:15 am – 10:15 am

qi gong qigong tai chi chi kung newbury berkshire total taiji simon keith

Qi Gong (Qigong, Chi Kung, Chi Gung) is an exercise system based on repetitions of very precise sets of movements which are specifically designed to promote wellbeing, health, healing and vitality.

Tuesdays 09:15 – 10:15

Increase your life force energy

The direct translation of Qi Gong is “energy work.” Qi Gong exercises are designed to increase one’s Qi (Chi) or life force energy. Only living beings have this Qi. More Qi means being healthier and feeling more alive.

The aim of Qi Gong is to promote the movement of Qi (energy) in the body; this is done by opening certain gates and stretching and twisting energy channels. A key point in Qi Gong practice is relaxation and deep breathing, both of which are prerequisites to allow Qi to flow.

Qi Gong exercises also help to move the energy in our bodies for health and can balance one’s Qi to aid healing. A smooth energy flow throughout the body, especially in any injured areas, can lead to a faster recovery. Its ability to help in healing a large variety of chronic and acute injuries and illnesses has been the subject of various research programmes led by Chinese medical authorities.

Qi Gong is easy to learn and enjoyable to do. Even a few minutes of practise can have an invigorating and rejuvenating effect. Regular practice brings about a deep strengthening effect for the whole body and its various systems (nervous, digestive, respiratory, skeleton-muscular, hormonal, gynaecological, etc).

Some Qi Gong movements are very gentle, others more vigorous. Some movements are very large and expansive, others are more subtle, almost imperceptible. All are different and have a very specific effect on body and mind. The more you practice, the more you will understand the purpose of each movement which deepens the work and makes it more enjoyable.

Classes run Tuesdays 09:15 – 10:15

A midday energy boost

Meditation doesn’t necessarily mean crossing your legs lotus position and dedicating an hour or more to the practice.

In our increasingly fast-paced world it can be hard to find time for this among all your daily cares whether at work or as part of a growing family. And yet it is when we are this busy that we most need the benefits of meditation and mindfulness practices.

Researchers have found that mindfulness-based programming not only helps individuals manage stress, depression and anxiety but also enhances productivity, creativity and concentration. Meditation-related physical benefits include lowered blood pressure, improved sleep and chronic pain management.

Fortunately, these benefits can still be felt from shorter meditation practices such as the 30 minute Lunchtime Meditations now taking place on Tuesdays 12:30 – 1pm at The Wellbeing Centre, Newbury.

These Lunchtime Meditations will allow you to:

  • Clear your mind
  • Give yourself a break
  • Re-centre
  • Re-focus
  • Come back to yourself
