We have received the information below from the Guildford Classical Association who will be putting on a performance of the Aeneid at Charterhouse, Godalming on 5th October:

The Guildford Classical Association is proud to be hosting The Latin Qvarter’s acclaimed production of The Song of Arms and a Man – a stunning performance of Virgil’s Aeneid – at Charterhouse on Saturday 5th October.
It tells the story of Aeneas’ escape from Troy, his stay with Dido and his struggle to fulfil his destiny as founder of Rome. The Latin readings from Virgil’s Aeneid are selective, but with the help of an English narration tell the whole story of the poem, rarely heard, in a unique presentation of the original verse, echoing the ancient culture of public performance of poetry.
George Sharpley’s adaptation of this extraordinarily musical poem is read by Emma Kirkby, Matthew Hargreaves, Elizabeth Donnelly and Llewelyn Morgan, with the accompaniment of a traditional piper.
This will be a unique and valuable experience, suitable for all, not just for anyone who has studied Latin in the past, but also those new to Latin and those who have no knowledge of the language. A parallel translation of the Latin used in the performance is available in the programme. Students of AL and GCSE would find it particularly useful in enhancing their enjoyment and appreciation of the Aeneid.
For details of the October performance and tickets, please see which gives access to on-line ticket sales. We are able to offer a small discount to students and to school groups. For details of these concessions, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. direct. For anyone travelling by public transport, Charterhouse will be running a minibus shuttle service from Godalming Station.

Surrey Oral History Project - The Great Warww1

Moira Nairn of the Surrey Heritage Centre in Woking wrote to advise us of a Heritage Lottery Project, Surrey in the Great War: A County Remembers that may be of interest to our members:


The Great War’s Impact 1914-1950s. 

Do you have a family story to tell? 

The main project explores all aspects of the impact of the war on the county and more information on this can be seen on our  website

The project’s Oral History component records people’s memories and stories about their and their families’ experiences during the Great War and its aftermath. I’m keen to make contact with anyone who may have a story to share with us. I’ve included some detail from our project information in the link below.
I’d be grateful if you could spread information about the Oral History project across the U3A community and invite anyone who would be interested in talking to us to email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with their contact details. I’ll take it from there!
