Kelston Records is putting on the first Concert for Aural Diversity (6 July at the Old Barn on Kelston Roundhill).
A concert for aural diversity entails music specially composed and performed for people with different states of hearing, including various stages of deafness.
Andrew Hugill talks about Menieres disease, deafness and work for aural diversity in a short film made by GN Resound.
It’s a project by the composer Andrew Hugill, recently of Bath Spa University. Prof Hugill himself suffers from deafness and other symptoms associated with Meniere’s disease. The programme is supported by the specialist Danish hearing aid supplier GN Resound.
We look forward to welcoming composer, musicians and guests to this important event, and look forward to helping make it a beautiful and memorable occasion.
Our neighbour Gerald did some beautiful cutting and laying over the holiday period. Thisnis mainly ash, so may well be susceptible to dieback and may not last. So we plan to check out the sales with a view to underplanting with some more hedge shrubs.

The British Geological Survey has a superb new “Geology of Britain” service offering 3D visualisation of the geology of the UK. The index is here -just type in a location and use the maps. It’s still a trial so they respond to feedback.
