Bristol

Opera for All, Broadmead

What it is: This is a group for all who love opera and for all who would like to know more about opera. We play generous musical excerpts from operas. The convenor generally presents an opera, except when he is not in Bristol, when some other member does it. If anyone would like to present an opera or introduce a chosen work you may but you don't have to. (No previous knowledge of opera is needed to enjoy the programme!). We have a substantial collection of CDs and notes and we discuss each term's programme before it appears in the Annual Bulletin or newsletters.

When it is: The 2nd and 4th Tuesday in the month 10.00 am for 10.30 am to 12 pm approx.

Where it is: The Knibb Room in Broadmead Baptist Church, Broadmead where the monthly meetings are held, though we may occasionally have to occupy some other room there. The room is to the left of the staircase on the top floor. There is access by lift to that floor. Please come punctually between 10 and 10.30 am. Coffee is normally available.

There is a charge of £4 at the beginning of each term towards the cost of room hire. We also charge 50p for coffee and biscuits.

The accommodation has room for more people and we would welcome more members.

Proposed dates for the year are in the Dates for Your Diary section below this page. Items may be changed in the light of views of the group and other exigencies but we generally try to stick to what we have proposed.

While there is risk from the corona virus this group is temporarily suspended. We shall only resume on 9 September 2020 if 'vulnerable' people are allowed out, public transport is safe without masks and we can get the same accommodation at short notice on the same terms as before. If these conditions obtain then the programme will be as below and we will pick up where we were in March. Notice will appear here when we resume.

The leader is Robert Walters who is fortunate to have the notes and CDs of the previous leader,Paul Foss. Robert can be contacted on 0117 968 2639 or send him an e-mail by clicking on the pigeon "send a message" link. If you wish to phone please avoid 1pm till 2pm and after 4.30pm.

Contact before coming. There is wheel-chair access. No parking. 5 mins to nearest bus stop and many buses go there.
