Decorations on Five on Friday

Hello

Thanks for popping in.

We're back on with Five on Friday today thanks to Amy at Love Made My Home. I'm looking forward to catching up with you all, I've missed you!  Having hit December already, there's a Christmassy feel to all the usual places. Here's what's happening inside the Arts Centre at the Park by the shops on a cold, frosty day.

One  - Cinderella

Panto season starts this week, oh no it doesn't, oh yes it does! To celebrate the new Cinderella production, the café has been transformed with large clocks all over the walls to remind us all to make a dash for home at midnight before the car is turned into a pumpkin.



Two - Trees

The 'elves' are busy putting up the Christmas trees. I didn't see any although a couple of ladies were creating something special with the chandelier.  I'll have to have a peek next time.



It looks like a spooky shadow on the wall but in actual fact, the darker colour on the wall is how the room looked in days gone by and they decided to leave it like that when they redecorated so everyone could still appreciate the original colours.





Three - Arts Week

During the school holidays, free community projects took place over the area. I rather liked this banner made in Binfield library. Have a look at the link to see all the events they ran, what a great idea to give the community the chance to get together and have a go at making something. Looks like another Arts Week is being organised for next year.

Four - Wilderness

Andrew Hawkins has an exhibition of wild landscape paintings made up of thick layers of unconventional materials, showing moorland through all the seasons. The information sheet says  'They remind us that we are but another layer in time.'



Five - Outside

So beautiful on a frosty day, hope you enjoyed my photos yesterday.



Wishing you all a great weekend.

Cheerio

  5. Beautiful photos. At this time of year one of the things I miss most about England is the panto. There is nothing quite like it. When I'm trying to explain it to Americans they just look really puzzled.

    Thanks for sharing your Five on Friday - it's good to be back!

  9. Lots of Christmas delight in this post. The clocks on the wall for Cinderella are really apt. We're not familiar with panto over here in Canada.

    1. It's just a theatre show really full of fun and audience participation. I like the way they decorate the café to match the show.

  11. What a lovely greeting, thank you! I have missed you too, although I have been reading even if not commenting. Great to see your five today, I like that "painted/unpainted" bit too, it is good to see a little of the past isn't it.

  13. I would love to see an English Panto, yes I would. Reading a mystery set around a panto, Smoke and Mirrors by Elly Griffiths.

  14. Yay - a frosty Christmas. We're just celebrating the first days of summer and it never quite feels christmassy here, I could certainly do with some of those Christmas Elves over here! Oh Yes I could!
    Have a great Sunday!

    1. They'd be great at packing all your things up, wouldn't they. You must have it down to a fine art now though. Enjoy the sunny weather. x

  16. I noticed out your window that you still have color also. I'm so surprised that many trees in our subdivision still have lots of colored leaves. They should have bare limbs by now. Truly are having a climate change, I guess.

    1. Yes it's been a very warm Autumn, the leaves have been really beautiful but we've just had a few sharp frosts and they've all fallen off now.
