  • WI dame stella rimington

    WI Presents: An evening with Dame Stella Rimington

    • Date: 28th October 2019
    • Location: Main Hall
    • Time: 19:15
    • Cost: £26.46

    The name's Rimington, Stella Rimington, in this case MI5 not MI6. What was it like being a real spy master? How did she get recruited?

    Stella Rimington was the first woman to head up MI5, but she was also the first Director General to be named in public. What was that like and why did MI5 take the decision to reveal her identity. Now, Dame Stella Rimington is also the author of a series of fictional spy stories centred around the character Liz Carlyle - but just how fictitious as character is she really?

    This promises to be a fascinating evening when you will hear first-hand from the person herself and ask her all those questions.

    Arrive early for a glass of wine. Dame Stella will be signing copies of her latest book during the evening.

    Sheku Kanneh-Mason, star cellist and 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year, is a player just as intelligent, sophisticated and enchanting as Saint-Saëns’s first cello concerto. He makes his debut with the Orchestra at this Oxford Town Hall concert which includes another young talent to watch: Assistant Conductor Hannah Schneider, who takes the Orchestra through one of Rossini’s most mischievous and excitable overtures. In a concert bookended by Mendelssohn, Marios Papadopoulos finishes with the composer’s vivacious, inspired symphonic postcard from Italy.

    AGMP presents FROM THE JAM "Setting Sons" 40th anniversary concert + special guests: THE VAPORS

    This autumn From the Jam will tour the UK celebrating the 40th Anniversary of The Jam’s 4th studio album ‘Setting Sons’. The critically acclaimed album reached #4 in the UK and was the band’s first album to enter the US charts. Succeeding 'All Mod Cons', the album became a commercial success, earning them their first top ten hit single - 'The Eton Rifles'. 

    “We can’t wait to perform the whole of ‘Setting Sons’ live” says vocalist and guitarist Russell Hastings. “The album has been noted as another one of The Jam’s best albums along with ‘All Mod Cons’. It seems that even the obscure album tracks like ‘Little Boy Soldiers’ and ‘Thick As Thieves’ are as popular when we play them live as the hit singles.” says Hastings.
