The Hare and The Moon – An Evening With Catherine Hyde

We're delighted to host an evening with renowned artist, illustrator and author, Catherine Hyde. Catherine will be joining us to read from and discuss her long-awaited new book, The Hare and the Moon: a calendar of paintings. As much a book for adults as children, this work is a lyrical tribute to the natural world – an exquisite, full colour country almanac that follows the phases of the moon and a hare's journey throughout the twelve months of the year.

Drinks served from 6.30pm, event begins at 7pm and finishes around 8pm.

For further details and booking, please visit the Elementum website.

The Royal Navy International Air Day

RNAS Yeovilton, the spiritual home of the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm, will open their gates to 40,000 visitors to enjoy the spectacular five hour flying display. The focus will very much be on saluting the past, showcasing the present whilst offering a glimpse into the future of Maritime Aviation Capability along with the capabilities of our sister services the Army and Royal Air Force, as core themes.

With 2020 being the 75th anniversary year of VE and VJ Days, RNIAD will be a marvellous opportunity for nations to come together in commemoration of the end of WW2, reinforcing that international cooperation continues to be vital to us all.

There will be a huge array of educational ground attractions from interactive Service displays to engineering fairs and state-of-the-art defence technology exhibitions. Families will also be able to enjoy trade stalls, arena displays, helicopter pleasure flights, simulators and fairground rides.

Further information on tickets will be announced in due course.
