A dog’s life

Supported by Arts Alive, poet Matt Harvey returns to the county to embellish artist Claudia Schmid’s collection of funny, mad, sad, strange canine drawings with his own quirky poems, captions and observations. ‘Sit!’ comes to Quatt Village on Saturday 9 February at 2pm and the story starts off with dogs and gradually makes its way back again, via an array of other strange and interesting creatures.

Before the performance begins, Quatt Village Hall are also running a Pets and Their People portrait art workshop with painter Tanya Raabe-Webber (and her cat Beeny) from 10.30am to 12.30pm. Bring along a photo of yourself with your dog, cat, rabbit, ferret, parrot, budgie, stick insect or any other kind of pet and see how Tanya captures everyone’s characters.

The performance is £10 (children £6) and the workshop £7.50 per person; cakes will be available but please bring your own drinks. Call 01746 781759 or 781214 for bookings or online.
