What's On at The Mill on the Fleet

From The Mill on the Fleet

Mill Sessions - Nathon Jones and Rhona Norris - with Strandlines Folk

Friday August 29th : 7.30pm
Tickets £8 on the door or online through Ticketsource
We're really delighted to have Nathon Jones and Rhona Norris for our August Mill Session.

Nathon and Rhona will be performing a mix of original songs and arrangements of some of their favourites - songs with influences ranging from trad to bluegrass. So join us for what promises to be a great evening in the company of some really great, local, musicians.

The Mill Café will also remain open for our Session, and light snacks, coffees, teas and cakes, are available before the performance, and at the interval.

Isabell Buenz
Monday 18th August – Saturday 20th September 2014
In ‘Little White Dress’ paper artist Isabell Buenz shows her fairy-tale like collection of paper dresses and accessories made from tea bag paper, inspired by her favourite encounters with nature.

The exhibition combines the artist’s interests and passions: working with paper, close up photography, use of words and her love of fashion.

When shown previously at Gracefield Arts Centre, the Dumfries & Galloway Life magazine reviewed the collection, stating the exhibition was “an outstanding example of how much can be made from so little”, astonished that tea bag paper “in its new couture role … is transformed into delicate, aetherial fabric, muslin-like, pure, clean and crisp.”

Isabell Buenz - Meet the Artist
Saturday 23rd August : 2pm

This exhibition at the Mill on the Fleet will display additional work and be brought to life by the artist during a special event on 23rd August. Free Event.

Until 31st October
The Exhibition is being funded in part by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The content of the exhibition is based on the very comprehensive research carried out by Margaret and Graham Wright of Gatehouse.

In addition to the exhibition a book has been published, based on the website compiled by the Wrights. It contains all the information that is known about the men and women from Gatehouse and District, or who had a connection with Gatehouse, who went to serve their country in the Great War. The book is available at the Exhibition for sale, with the proceeds being donated to Service Charities. The book is intended to provide a lasting Memorial to all those who served.

The children of Gatehouse Primary School have made a film about life in Gatehouse in 1914 including the singing of some popular songs from that time. The film will be shown during the Exhibition.

For the first week of the exhibition there will be a small display of medals and other artefacts associated with the Great War.
