1 Cheshire West & Chester Council Exhibi{ions&Even{s Grosvenor Museum I OCTOBER 2014 JANUARY 2015

2 Exhibi{ions COVER: Picturesque Chester: The City in Art Until 12 October The Great War: Personal Responses by Cheshire Artists Network Exhibition Gallery Two Members of Cheshire Artists Network have produced work in a range of media which represent personal responses to the Great War, seen through collective recollection, documentary accounts, and family histories. Even though the subject matter cannot help but be emotional, and is often personal through the involvement of ancestors and their loved ones, the clouding of memories will increasingly be a threat. The artists hope to slow that process by means of their work, and in this way pay their respects to those who paid the price of our freedom. Until 2 November Buildings, Battles and Bodies: A History of Heronbridge Exhibition Gallery One 85 years of excavations at Heronbridge have revealed some amazing secrets. This exhibition begins by exploring the Roman origins of Heronbridge, where a settlement was established on the edge of the River Dee close to the fortress at Chester. It then jumps forward to the 7th century and the Battle of Chester to investigate Heronbridge s fortified enclosure and mass grave. Visitors can even come face to face with two Anglo-Saxon warriors who fought, died, and were buried on the site. Until 19 December Dulce et Decorum Est For many of the young men who volunteered to fight for their country in the Great War it was a great adventure regular meals, good companionship and an outdoor life which was sure to be over by Christmas. Neither they nor those who so actively encouraged them to enlist had any idea of the horrors that were in store. Using photographs drawn from both our own collection and those images and stories that were shared at our recent Roadshow, this exhibition looks at the local men and their families whose lives were irrevocably changed by the war to end all wars. 01 Wha{ s On I Exhibitions and Events in Chester

3 Exhibi{ions Exhibitions Until 19 December The Nurses Story This exhibition, contributed by the Backford, Mollington and District Local History Society, looks at the experiences of two dedicated nurses during the Great War, drawing on their photographs, diaries and letters. nurses story 1-3 images Until 19 December For Those in Peril: HMS Chester Until 19 December From Bombs to Bandages The flow of casualties from the battlefields of the Great War overwhelmed the existing medical establishments at home, and many civilian buildings and houses were turned over to military use. Chester was no exception and these images, taken from a donated photograph album, show the young convalescent patients and nurses of the Voluntary Aid Detachment from Hoole Bank, their smiling faces shining out at us from that long ago sunny afternoon when the booming guns of the front line must have seemed a world away from those peaceful gardens. It was an exciting moment for the citizens of Chester when a ship was named after the city and launched in At the Battle of Jutland in June 1916 HMS Chester came under heavy fire and amongst the gun crew fatalities was 16 year old John Cornwall, who received the Victoria Cross for his dedication to duty despite being mortally wounded. This display commemorates his courage throughout that terrible battle and the ship and crew that he was so proud to be a part of. Wha{ s On I Exhibitions and Events in Chester 02

4 Exhibi{ions Exhibitions Until 2015 Motherhood Costume Gallery This small exhibition explores the role of motherhood between 1860 and 1960, with interpretation extending into the surrounding period rooms. Recognising that the role is not always fulfilled by the biological mother, the exhibition examines the themes of baby and child-care, home-making and time out. Through objects, costumes and ephemera, the exhibition considers the roles of motherhood, laboursaving equipment, and the implications of social developments during a century of enormous change. 18 October 18 January Cian Quayle: Points of Departure Exhibition Gallery Two Cian Quayle is an artist whose work investigates ideas of place. He uses journeys and travel as a means of recording the experience of urban space and landscape, and of what lies between. The exhibition brings together paintings, photographs, prints and object-based works, which span a period of twenty years. Dr Cian Quayle is a Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader in BA Photography at the University of Chester. Exhibition organised in partnership with the University of Chester 15 November 22 February Picturesque Chester: The City in Art Exhibition Gallery One Chester is England s most picturesque city, the two-mile circuit of her Roman and medieval walls enclosing two thousand years of history. Chester s rich architectural heritage includes the unique Rows, the majestic Norman church of St John the Baptist and the Gothic cathedral, charming Tudor and Stuart half-timbered houses, a monumental Greek Revival castle, and the spectacular buildings of the Victorian and Edwardian black-and-white revival. Chester has inspired artists for more than four centuries, and the cream of the museum s remarkable collection has been selected to provide a fascinating exploration of this enchanting city. 03 Wha{ s On I Exhibitions and Events in Chester

5 Exhibitions 6 January 27 March Oh You Pretty Things! The 1970s was the decade of the Space Hopper, Aquamanda perfume, the Ford Cortina, and the Winter of Discontent. Despite strikes and water shortages the whole nation celebrated The Queen s Jubilee in 1977 and British popular culture still led the world. This exhibition looks at people and places in Chester during those years, which for many of us meant glam and glitz as much as trouble and strife. 6 January 27 March Band of Gold With St Valentine s Day in mind, this foyer display looks at Chester weddings some high church, some not and all of them joyful days full of promise and new beginnings. From weddings in the cathedral to a 1970s register office ceremony, we take a look back at the dresses, bridesmaids and proud families involved in making this a day to remember. 6 January 27 March Voluntary Action on the Home Front in Chester: History & Legacy Set up days after the outbreak of the Great War, the Council of Social Welfare (later to become Chester Voluntary Action) co-ordinated the provision of assistance on the Home Front, providing relief to those in need due to the war. This centenary exhibition shines a light on the significant contribution made by local charities to support families whose main breadwinner was away in the services, wounded or killed, and those affected by unemployment arising from the disruption to trade. It highlights major events and social issues in Chester from 1914 onwards, showing the significant impact of Chester Voluntary Action then and now. Calling All Artists! The Grosvenor Museum s 11th Open Art Exhibition will run from March to June This biennial show celebrates the best of the region s contemporary art, providing a diverse and stimulating exhibition for the public and giving artists in the area an opportunity to show their work. Entry forms will be available after 5 January from Ruth Marshall, telephone , andchester.gov.uk 24 January 19 April Louise Rayner: Victorian Watercolours Exhibition Gallery Two The much-loved watercolours of Louise Rayner ( ) present a uniquely charming vision of Victorian Chester. She delighted in the textures of crumbling plaster, weather-beaten timber, peeling posters and rough cobbles. Her views of Chester s picturesque streets are brought vividly to life with ordinary people going about their daily lives in the sunlit city. Louise Rayner came from a family of artists, and the exhibition includes watercolours by her father Samuel and sister Margaret.

9 Even{s Events for Adults Wednesday 15 October Chester College: The Formative Years, pm 3, pay at the door. In this talk, Professor Graeme White will explore Chester College s early history. At the time of its founding it was a pioneering institution the first purpose-built teacher-training college in England and the first founded specifically to serve a diocese. Indeed, in its early years Chester College offered a distinctive educational experience with an emphasis on workshop skills. After nearly collapsing in 1869, it revived following the 1870 Education Act and by the First World War was thriving as a college preparing young men to teach in elementary schools. Wednesday 22 October Chester College: The Transformative Years, pm 3, pay at the door. This talk focuses on the history of Chester College from the First World War until the 1970s. Professor Graeme White will explore the institution s relationship with the city during this sixty year period. As a relatively small college, its most obvious impact on Chester residents was through the annual Rag Day inaugurated in the 1920s. But after the Second World War there were some major changes, including the replacement of dormitories by residential hostels in the 1950s and the admission of the first women students in the 1960s. Thursday 23 October The Eccleston Project 1-2pm Eccleston, two miles south of Chester on the River Dee, is documented in the Domesday Book and may date from AD 600. Fieldwork coordinator, Dr Niall Macfayden, will provide an update on the ongoing excavations by the Chester Archaeological Society. Saturday 25 October The Secret Life of a Recorder 2-3pm 3, or 2 if carrying a ticket for the evening Piva concert. Pay on the door. It s easy to take the recorder for granted, but it has a long musical history and was once seen as superior to the flute! The Grosvenor Museum has a unique set of recorders made by master instrument maker Peter Bressan in the 17th century. To celebrate this collection and as an introduction to their evening concert this talk by the Renaissance music group Piva will take you on the recorder s musical journey from early medieval times through to the Baroque, giving a unique insight into the life and times of the instrument and the people who made and played it.

10 Even{s Events for Adults Saturday 25 October Measure for Measure: Music from Shakespeare s Time pm 8, includes a complimentary glass of wine. To book call To mark the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare s birth, the Renaissance music group Piva presents a concert of popular dance and ballad music from the theatres of the day. Shakespeare wrote for all of society, and Piva will reflect this with pieces ranging from village green to stately court. They will also bring the period alive with stories about life in Shakespeare s theatre. One of the country s leading early music groups, Piva play throughout the UK and across Europe. Using a wide range of period instruments, the members are all multi-instrumentalists who create music of the past played for today. Wednesday 29 October From Teacher Training College to the University of Chester, pm 3, pay at the door. During this talk, Professor Graeme White will consider why Chester College survived during the 1970s, when many similar colleges closed or merged. One of the reasons, as he will explain, was that Chester College diversified beyond teacher training. More recently, the institution has grown considerably in size, maturity and economic impact. Since the turn of the millennium it has become a university and has spread to new campuses at Warrington and Thornton as well as in Chester itself. However, the original campus on Parkgate Road continues and its diverse buildings illustrate changing educational priorities over the past 175 years. Fridays 31 October & 21 November Chester Ghosts 2-3pm Free, but booking essential at A ghostly film looking at some of the most haunted sites in Chester from the atmospheric Thornton s shop and the spirit of Sarah, to the chilling Bear & Billet Inn where desperate screams can still be heard today.

11 Even{s Events for Adults Friday 7 November Put That Light Out! pm 3, book at Chester History & Heritage The war to end all wars became one of the most common catchphrases of the Great War but in 1939, for the second time in many people s lives, our country was again in conflict with Germany. Join the inimitable Len Morgan, who chooses from his vast collection of photographic slides to show just what these years of hardship and loss meant to Chester. Wednesday 19 November Contemporary China through Chinese Opera Wednesday 26 November Cian Quayle: Artist Journeys 2-3pm Dr Cian Quayle s illustrated talk introduces the work in his current exhibition. He explores the significance of artist journeys via personal practice and researchrelated influences and projects, which, amongst others, make reference to the work of Dada artist Kurt Schwitters and Wirral born writer Malcolm Lowry. 2-3pm Whilst Western opera is considered a high art, in China it is mainstream entertainment and integral to the common people's way of living: feeling the breeze within a garden venue and listening to familiar song whilst sipping tea and discussing classical lyrics. Dr Haili Ma was a member of the Shanghai Luwan Opera Company and is now Senior Lecturer in Contemporary Chinese Cultural Studies at the University of Chester.

13 Even{s Events for Adults Wednesday 21 January Exploring Medieval Chester 1-2pm 3, pay at the door.

The Castle, the Cathedral, the Church of St John the Baptist, the Rows, the Pentice, and the Old Dee Bridge all feature, along with the Chester Mystery Plays.

Professor Peter Gaunt explores the city s role in the main civil war of , during most of which it served as a royalist base and housed a royalist garrison but was subject to intermittent though eventually successful blockage, siege and bombardment by parliamentarian forces. In particular, he examines the differing views held by local, regional and national royalist and parliamentarian generals, administrators and politicians about the importance and potential of Chester in the wider war effort, and thus also the very different levels of priority and importance which they attached to holding or capturing the city. Wednesday 4 February High and Broad Walls with many Towers and Bulwarks 1-2pm 3, pay at the door. Chester is famous for retaining, virtually complete, its circuit of city walls. They are built of the local friable red sandstone and have survived in spite of chance, neglect, war and changing needs. Recent restoration work has refocused attention and research on this most iconic of Chester s monuments. Using the results of recent discoveries, Simon Ward will explore how politics, warfare, resources and changing fashion have moulded and developed the walls into the monument we have today.
