Sherry and chocolate at the Wee Crook

Saturday 9th December

Following the success of last year’s port and cheese tasting, we’re exploring the delights of two other Christmas favourites – sherry and chocolate.

If you don’t know your Fino from your Oloroso, and you’ve always wondered how chocolate can possibly be good for you, this evening should answer your questions.

Mostly, though, it’s about having fun and perhaps trying something new.

Tickets are limited and must be booked in advance. Over 18s only. Email or text 0776 313 9964 and we’ll send you an online payment link. The cost is £7.50 per person, for sherry, suitably Spanish savoury snacks – and chocolate!

Bar opens at 7pm, event starts at 7.30pm.

Tweedsmuir harvest celebration

Harvest celebration in Tweedsmuir

On Sunday 15th October from 2 – 5 pm

Over the summer, events have been taking place in five community gardens along the River Tweed, to record the sights and sounds of these different locations.

The resulting recordings have been professionally edited into short films which you can watch in the Moving Images Cinema Caravan on its visit to the Wee Crook.

We will also be celebrating the harvest season with food and drink; live music; recipe card printing; natural dye activity; and a display of drawings inspired by the garden.

This is a free event, supported by Connecting Threads – please join us at the Crook gardens if you can!

Poster for Film our Gardens event in Tweedsmuir

Film our Gardens at the Crook

Next session – Tuesday 8th August, 6.30-8.30pm 

Harvest Celebration, date tbc

Film Our Gardens is an Audio-Visual Pollinator project, where film and sound will act as pollinators between community gardens along the River Tweed.

Between June and October 2023, Connecting Threads River Culture Animateurs and invited sound and visual artists will visit five community gardens along the river, collaborating with garden volunteers and visitors to creatively document the sights and sounds of each garden. The stars of the films will be the plants, trees and flowers, filmed by those who care and nurture them. We will be getting up close – taking a bee’s eye view of the botanical world.

We will also be working alongside Buglife’s Pollinators Along the Tweed project, to monitor pollinator activity in each garden as part of the filming sessions.

The resulting short films will be screened in each garden in the solar powered Moving Images Cinema Caravan at celebratory harvest events in October, audio-visually pollinating garden-to-garden to share inspiration.

Come along if you can – it sounds fascinating!
