Ten Strings Duo, an exciting Italian music event.

A very special underground candlelit event, 100ft underground!
The Ten Strings Duo are two young sicilian virtuosos; Marianatalia Ruscica, violinist, and Davide Sciacca, classical guitarist. They are performers and Conservatoire teachers and their repertoire varies from early 19th century composers to contemporary. Their concerts are popular with the public and critics alike. Recently they have performed classical music in prestigious theatres, concert halls, and heritage sites. In 2016 they performed in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales and other members of the Royal Family at Crathie Kirk, Aberdeenshire.
The concert will be in two parts, 35 minutes each, with a 20 minute interval. Refreshments available.

Hell Was Passchendaele
Friday 22nd September 2017
A unique opportunity to see this moving production in the beautiful surroundings of Clearwell Caves
Ceridwen Theatre Company proudly present a gripping tale of survival, courage and impossible choices in the most terrible of conditions.
Between July and November 1917 an average of 5,000 men lost their lives every day, trying to capture 5 miles of desolate terrain and a village in Belgium.
Relentless torrential rain filled the shell holes, creating lakes 10 feet deep where wounded soldiers drowned, horses floundered helplessly and whole tanks disappeared.
Let us descend into this Hell and seek three soldiers cut off from their allies, beset on all sides by enemies and surrounded by unimaginable horror. If they are to survive they must rely solely on one another. Their story is just one amongst thousands - but it is a story that must be seen to be believed.
This production commemorates the centenary of the "Battle of Passchendaele" and the brave souls who lost their lives there.
You will journey through the caves to the main cavern, meeting various characters along the way, then get yourself a drink before settling down for the main performance.
Recommended for ages 12+
Tickets: £12.50 no concessions.
Seating is provided in the main cavern, you are welcome to bring a cushion if you require more comfort.

Exciting and adventurous - Try Caving!
Explore beneath the Earth's surface, have fun and enjoy challenges at the same time, as you discover this unique natural cave and mine system. If you don't see a date available that you can manage, give us a ring and we may still be able to arrange a trip for another time. You can book for individuals, or small groups on the website, or groups of six or more, call the Caves to enquire, or book.
Specialist and educational visits by schools are particularly welcome from 7yrs+ - we are licensed by the AALA for caving activities and hold the LOtC Adventure Mark.
There are two levels of caving activity: Deep Level - for more adventurous visitors ... and Semi-Deep Level - combining a tour of the show cave with a shorter caving activity, both trips are suitable for most able bodied persons and can be suited to complete novices through to experienced cavers. The next caving activities are shown on the link below, or if you have a group of six or more please ring to book, throughout the year. Maximum 15 persons for each group, but up to three groups can be taken at a time. Both activities are great fun, but will involve getting dirty.
