October 22nd, 2014: Bermuda Events Update

Morning Troops!

 

So glad we all emerged from Gonzalo without any serious injuries – what a scary night though!  I for one am really looking forward to a storm-free weekend.  Here’s the latest line-up of what’s happening in Bermuda:

October 15th, 2014: Bermuda Events Update

Hi Kids!

 

Well, I guess the short version of this post would have been, “Everything is cancelled, just stay at home”.  This will come as no surprise but you’ll see a lot of cancellations and postponements below.  Since we don’t yet know what the extent of the damage from Hurricane Gonzalo is going to be, please be sure to check with event organisers before heading to anything listed for the next week or two.

Hopefully, you will receive a post next week but this will depend greatly on power outages and internet connection – fingers crossed!  Stay safe, Bermuda – look after each other and see you on the other side!

 

1016 Charles + Chewstick

Discovery Wines present a Roots, Rock Reggae event featuring Geoffrey Markell from Charles Smith Wines and the 3 Kings Band on Thursday, October 16th.  **UPDATE:  This will now be on Thursday, November 20th due to Hurricane Gonzalo**

Charles + Chewstick will run from 6pm until 8pm, including a taste of four different Charles Smith Wines will be served alongside some cheeses. Come on out for a fun evening of great wine, great music and great food!

The cost is $30 per person and reservations are required.

For more information, or to make a reservation, contact 296-9463 or events@discoverywines.bm.

September 24th, 2014: Bermuda Events Update

Morning all!

 

Apparently, the first official day of Fall was yesterday.  Hmmm…I’m not quite ready to accept this yet so I think we can cling onto Summer for a little longer in Bermuda.  Here are the latest island events:

 


0925 Willie Cole

The Alchemy of Objects, the next in the PartnerRe Art Lecture Series at Bermuda National Gallery will be on Thursday, September 25th.

The guest speaker will be acclaimed contemporary American sculptor and conceptual artist, Willie Cole, who is known for assembling and transforming ordinary domestic and used objects such as irons, high-heeled shoes, hair dryers, bicycle parts, and other discarded appliances and hardware, into imaginative and powerful works of art and installations.

Cole’s work combines references and appropriation ranging from African and African-American imagery, to Dada’s readymades and Surrealism’s transformed objects, and icons of American pop culture or African and Asian masks, into highly original and witty assemblages.

The reception will be from 5.30pm, followed by the lecture itself at 6pm.

The cost is $10 for members and $20 for non-members.

For more information, or to RSVP, contact director@bng.bm or 295-9428.
