Thursday 14th – Saturday 23rd – Wrexham
Entertaining Angels is a deceptively profound and comic play which focuses on Grace, a former clergy wife, who is enjoying her new-found freedom following the death of her husband, Bardolph. After spending a lifetime of being on her best behaviour she can now do and say exactly as she pleases.
Joining Grace in this latest stage of her life is her therapist daughter, Jo; her eccentric missionary sister, Ruth and Sarah the new female vicar with some very un-clergy-like credentials.
As the action progresses, Grace faces some disturbing revelations and is forced to confront Bardolph’s ghost and the truth of their marriage.
Richard Everett’s clever, funny and touching play asks whether God can be trusted to do anything at all “or is the whole thing a divine exercise in trial and error?”
Entertaining Angels is directed by the wonderful Brian Gilbert, who has previously directed The Extraordinary Revelations of Orca the Goldfish, Lovers, The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged), The Golden Pathway Annual and Memory of Water. Brian says “This is a play which I hope audiences will enjoy. Performed by a very strong cast, it has a gentle blend of lively wit and real emotion.”
Entertaining Angels is showing at Grove Park Theatre, Hill Street, Wrexham from Thursday 14th February to Saturday 23rd February. There is a matinee performance on Saturday 16th February.
Thursday 14th – Saturday 16th February:
Adults – £8. Children aged 16 years and under – £5.

FINGERTIPS IN TIME
Friday 15th February (6.30pm – 9pm)
Please join us This Friday for the opening of our new exhibition.
All welcome – we look forward to seeing you.
John Hedley – Fingertips in Time
John’s unique work explores combining photography with more tradition intaglio printmaking methods.
John examines geological formations found in GeoMôn UNESCO Global Geopark in Ynys Môn, which is one of 2 geoparks in Wales. He looks at the natural processes in nature like corrosion, erosion and layering and compares them to the same in printmaking. There are also some geological images from the Greek island of Crete. Many of these geological formations found in North Wales and Crete are very similar and John is particularly interested in the fact that although similar, these are hundreds of millions of years younger than those of Ynys Môn.
Fingertips in Time explores imagery for so long exclusive to the natural sciences.
The stress, layering and cracking in the printing process is analogous to processes in geology. The timeless quality of the flowing matter that created the rock seems to reside within the images.
Tree studies are also featured, these grow in response to light and environment and their form, like rocks, is created over many years. The organic abstraction and ambiguous patterns and layering found in the rock and tree formations are helping the work evolve.
John makes a digital negative on acetate, which is then exposed onto photopolymer plates, ready for reworking into Intaglio printmaking.
Based in North Wales, John has over many years, developed a deep and sustained interest in visual aspects of the natural sciences, especially geology and arboreal morphology. Since 2017 he has been funded by the Welsh Arts Council enabling a number of recent one-person exhibitions in public galleries in Wales, including MOSTYN and the Royal Cambrian Academy. ‘Fingertips In Time’ combines works from these past exhibitions and adds new elements and perspectives to take a fresh look at how photography has been used to inform and create these images.
Fingertips in Time continues until 30th March 2019

Exhibition: Josephine Meckseper
MOSTYN – Llandudno
We are pleased to present both existing work and new commissions in the first solo exhibition in Wales, and the first institutional solo exhibition in a decade, by German born and New York based artist Josephine Meckseper.
One of the foremost female artists of her generation working today, Meckseper’s work combines the aesthetic language of modernism with the formal languages of commercial display and advertising. In her shop window installations, large-scale display sculptures and films, she exposes the paradoxes of consumer culture through the combination of mass-produced objects with images and artefacts of historical and political events.
At the core of the exhibition will be a set of glass, resin and steel sculptures, along with two dimensional and film work.
Open Tuesday – Sunday
Admission is FREE
Exhibition: Louisa Gagliardi – Under the Weather
MOSTYN – Llandudno
We are delighted to present the first solo exhibition in a UK institution of the work of Switzerland born and Zurich based artist Louisa Gagliardi.
Gagliardi’s work pulls apart the construction of an image, and of our society, in a digital age while appearing to explore the codes and history of painting. Her works pose questions around ideas of figure and ground, flatness and depth. Working digitally initially – using a freehand digital illustration tool – her pieces are later seemingly translated into paintings.
Presenting both new and existing works, this exhibition places a spotlight on the defining factors of Gagliardi’s practice, which has also turned to the location of the gallery for inspiration. In various ways, the works explore the urban environment and the countryside, and the conflict that can arise between the two.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
Satruday 15th – Thursday 21st – 4:30 – Theatr Colwyn – Colwyn Bay
What began as an unlikely friendship between an adolescent Viking and a fearsome Night Fury dragon has become an epic adventure spanning their lives. Welcome to the most astonishing chapter of one of the most beloved animated franchises in film history: How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.
Now chief and ruler of Berk alongside Astrid, Hiccup has created a gloriously chaotic dragon utopia. When the sudden appearance of female Light Fury coincides with the darkest threat their village has ever faced, Hiccup and Toothless must leave the only home they know and journey to a hidden world thought to exist only in myth.
As their true destinies are revealed, dragon and rider will fight together – to the very ends of the Earth – to protect everything they have grown to treasure.
Cast: Jay Baruchel (voice), Cate Blanchett (voice), Gerard Butler (voice), Jonah Hill (voice), Kit Harington (voice), Kristen Wiig (voice)
