An inspirational story from holocaust survivor Ruth Schwiening

Did you get to see Susi Wright’s fabulous exhibition, Six Million White Roses, in The Buttermarket in Newark last month?

It finished a few days ago and attracted lots of visitors to explore the amazing artwork on display…

And raised some well-deserved funds from the sale of quite a few of them, which is going to The National Holocaust Centre over in Laxton.

One of the exhibitors was holocaust survivor Ruth Schwiening who’ll be speaking at the centre on Sunday 11 December. This is a great chance to hear her story which Susi quite rightly describes as moving, humbling and inspiring.

Ruth’s new book, which was on sale during the exhibition in The Buttermarket, will be available to buy and Ruth will be on hand to chat to visitors and sign copies too.

Booking for the event is essential and tickets are on sale, priced £9 for adults and £7.50 for over 65s and children between 8 and 16 years old. Children aged 3 to 8 are admitted free and family tickets, for 2 adults and up to three children, are just £28 each.

The talk itself runs from 1pm to 2.30pm and the centre will be open from 10am to 4.30pm to allow visitors to explore the exhibitions and memorial gardens.

To book tickets, call 01623 836627 or visit the centre’s website and click on the What’s On tab on the menu at the top of the home page.

If you weren’t able to visit Six Million White Roses in person, you can follow this link to see some recent coverage on Notts TV – just fast forward to around 13 minutes in to find it…

And make sure keep an eye out for the flipbook coming soon, with lots of photos of the fantastic work Susi and all of the artists brought to town last month.

New fun-filled classes for kids now open in Newark

Two more first-time guests on this week’s Girls Around Town

When June will be welcoming Harry and Megan Hindley onto the show to tell her – and you – all about bringing Copper Studios to Newark!

A Performing Arts Academy for students aged two to 18 offering training in acting, singing and dance, their Nottingham studio opened its doors four years ago, although they’d been running classes in various venues across the city since September 2015.

Fast forward to October 2022 – those classes can now be enjoyed by youngsters living in and around Newark…

And Harry and Megan will be live on air from just after 11am with details of what those kids will find when they join in the fun at the new studios over on Slaughterhouse Lane.

They’ll be looking back at some of the highlights of the last few years and looking ahead to what’s in store for the near future, when some of their 300-plus members will be sharing that fun as they take to the stage to showcase their different skills.

Make sure you Put On Your Sunday Best this weekend, on 107.8FM, on the apps, on Alexa or online, to hear what they do and why they do it…

And how and where to find out more, especially if you’ve got youngsters who might want to develop existing artistic skills or even learn some new ones right here in Newark!
