Andrew Carnie - picture by Joe LowThroughout the Spring and early Summer, Hyde900 put the spotlight on some of the best known artists and designers associated with the Hyde area in The Art of Conversation, a series of in-depth analyses and discussions of their work. In front of attentive audiences in Hyde Parish Hall, the well-known glass engraver Tracey Sheppard and nationally-recognised architect Robert Adam underwent in-depth questioning from interviewers Bill Lucas and Sophie Cunningham Dawe about their craft, their creativity and their careers. Also included in the series were Stephen Boyce (poet), Alex Hoare (visual artist), Andrew Carnie (visual artist, pictured here) and Mark Eden and Helen Sanderson (Guitarists).

Outside in Hyde

datePosted on 18:53, June 10th, 2011 by Madelaine

The first outdoor event held by the Hyde900 Third Thursday BYO Literature group was a great success. A number of readers shared their work in the chamber of Hyde Gate and repaired to the Hyde Tavern afterwards for refreshment.

Please join us this Thursday 7th July at 7.30pm in the Hyde Abbey Garden for the second open-air reading evening in this historic setting.
This evening’s readings will be poems on the theme ‘Inspired by Winchester’.
Read your own work, or just come and listen. Bring a chair or rug to sit on.
Directions: Hyde Abbey Garden is near River Park Leisure Centre.
  • If you’re driving, we suggest you park in the back half of the leisure centre car park (free after 6pm). The Garden lies between the two halves of the car park.
  • If you are walking then from the Hyde Tavern, walk towards the City centre, take the first left into King Alfred Place and walk as far as you can until you enter the leisure centre grounds, where you will find the Hyde Abbey Gardens.
We look forward to seeing you then.

Hyde 900 Procession in Hyde Abbey GardenMeeting on 12th March will point way towards a new agenda for Hyde’s community based group .

2010 was a remarkable year for Hyde. Building on the 900th anniversary of the founding of Hyde Abbey – the final official resting place of King Alfred the Great – people of all ages came together through Hyde900 to celebrate and find out more about the history, the talent and the physical environment of our area. So do we stop now that the celebratory year is over? That is the question that the Hyde900 executive has been asking itself over the past couple of months. Our answer now is firmly NO.
