The Royal Ballet three associate choreographers celebrate the dynamic range and danceability of Bernstein’s music.

The centrepiece is the ballet The Age of Anxiety, created in 2014 to Bernstein’s soul-searching Second Symphony, inspired by W.H. Auden’s masterful modernist poem, reflecting post-World War II disillusionment and uncertainty.

CALLIGRAPHY The Art of the Pen

One of our Calligraphy Tutors is Manny Ling - Senior Lecturer in Design at the University of Sunderland and Director of the International Research Centre for Calligraphy.

Such credentials mean Higham benefits from a practitioner with a genuine deep knowledge of his practice. Manny was the world’s first recipient of a Doctorate in Western Calligraphy.

With work held in a number of private collections and museums, such a respected teacher can inspire others to develop their skills.

How wonderful to have the chance to be taught by such an accomplished educator.

Manny’s next weekend at Higham is in May - Calligraphy: Italic For All (everything provided). As with all our courses, non-residential places are available.

We’ll leave you with one of the typical comments left after one of Manny’s Calligraphy courses:

“Wonderful! Everything I expected and more. Fabulous tutor, lovely group of people, we all learned so much and lovely food too!”
