This May we will be bringing you our very fist Opera Screening at The Watermark. Puccini’s Tosca will be screened on Saturday 19th May 2012, starting at 7.30, the showing is 2hrs & 05mins and there will be an interval. Here’s a bit more info:
Set in the Rome of 1800, a political world of control and suspicion, Tosca is a beautiful diva in love with idealistic painter, Cavaradossi, whose beliefs and loyalties bring him into conflict with the malevolent Chief of Police, Scarpia. Conducted by Antonio Pappano, the score includes great set pieces such as ‘Te Deum’ and the arias ‘Vissi d’arte’ and ‘E lucevan le stelle’. Drama, passion and fabulous music – Tosca is one of opera’s brilliant nights out. For more info and a clip, see this link >> http://cinema.roh.org.uk/content/tosca
As for our Live Events, we’re back to our folky roots, with The Toy Hearts & Fairport Convention visiting the Watermark on Friday 4th May & Saturday 26th May respectively. Tickets are booking now. We’ll be posting more about these events in the coming weeks. Tickets for The Toy Hearts are £12 and £11 Concession & Fairport Convention Tickets are £20 & £19 Concessions, as with all our events you can find more info on our Live Events page.
Believe it or not, its true!
This evening The Watermark played host to ‘Ivybridge Showcase’ or ‘Ivybridge’s Got Talent’. The event was fairly well supported, the more the merrier as they say, however, a great night of entertainment was had by all! Some of the acts included, The Ivybridge Choir, Ivybridge Musical Theatre Group (From Ivybridge Community College), 2 Local Bands! , A fantastic Classical Duo, a guitarist, gymnasts and Compering from Morag (Beaconville Nursing Home) and our very own Ex-Mayor, Frances Reeves.
We’ve put together a short (2 minute) video so you can experience at least some of the event, the video is on our YouTube Channel you can view it by clicking the link below:
We also had the trusty camera handy so we were snapping away all night, here are some of the best pictures from the night! Click to read more….
On Friday 18th November we did our bit for Children in Need! As you see from the pictures on our gallery (http://ivybridgewatermark.co.uk/children-in-need-2011), the staff were all dressed up in Pudsey neck ties and Pudsey ears (they loved it really). We had a raffle for tickets to see the Mike Westbrook big band and we had a spotty cake sale (Nicky made some delicious cupcakes for the event)
The biggest event of the day however was a visit from Simon Weston ( http://www.simonweston.com/ ), as you can see from the picture above, there was a huge turnout on the day, Simon talked about a number of things including his recent (and third) children’s book “NELSON AT SEA” and many people who came away from the event were inspired by his talks.
Thank you to everyone who supported the event, leave your comments below and let us know what you thought of the day!
If you had tried to access the site yesterday (Thursday) evening, you may not have been able to view the site, that’s because we have been working away, improving the site, for Friday (Today) Morning! We apologise for any inconvenience, but we think you will like the improvements to the site.
First of all, this won’t be the last update, we are constantly working on ways to interact with our customers and improve the site and the way you can use it. Some of the updates in this ‘Version’ there have been quite a few changes to the home page, we have tried to develop it to make it easier to find out what is happening at The Watermark from day to day, and more importantly, what there is for you to do at The Watermark from day to day.
A few more feature updates, we now have galleries on the site! You will be seeing these very soon, and over the christmas period we will be using them very frequently to document our various events, and yes, you will all be able to download the pictures from any of the events you attend! One of the things we hope this site will provide is a place to talk! We have comment sections on all our posts and we love to hear from you.
After a very long evening, welcome to The Watermark Website, Version 2. Enjoy and feel free to send us any ideas you think might improve the site!
Over the past few weeks you should have received, through your front door, a small leaflet called ‘Which way for Ivybridge?’ Well the past few weeks have been pretty manic for The Watermark, we’ve had the Princes Trust in this week, discussing the plans for Ivybridge, lots of meetings between different people, but the most important two meetings that affect most people in Ivybridge have been the two public meetings. One happened on Monday 7th November and one is happening on Tuesday 10th November.
Monday 7th November
The first of two meetings. Members of the public (the residents of Ivybridge) were invited to the Watermark to put forward their ideas for Ivybridge, over the course of the night, people were invited to write down an idea on a post it note, and having seen the response, it’s pretty incredible. Almost an entire wall has been filled with neon coloured postit notes with all of your ideas on it.
If you haven’t seen these leaflets, pop down to the watermark and we’ve got some here at the front desk!
Thursday 10th November
Today is the day of the second public meeting, it’s official name is: The Presentation of the two masterplans. The princes trust has been working on producing the masterplans with the input of the Ivybridge Community at The Watermark for the past few days and tonight you will be able to see the results and the current progression of the masterplans.
It all starts at 7pm and it is only an hour long.
We look forward to seeing you there!
