A presentation and interactive discussion

About Richard Swift

Richard has practised and taught specialist business planning for over forty years.   From the turn round of Aston Martin in the 80’s to European Business Manager at the University of Westminster in the 90s to projects in healthcare and social development in recent years, Richard has a reputation for finding practical solutions to difficult problems.

The Effective Entrepreneur
This interactive talk is aimed at students and startups and is essentially a talk about  'How to not fail in business.' In a world where the definition of a job is constantly evolving and technology is disrupting the 'employed' status more rapidly than ever, this presentation and talk will give you greater insight into what is currently relevant and may assist you in future career choices. You will explore and understand the common ground of employment and entrepreneurship. Examine what it takes to be an entrepreneur and whether or not you have those qualities.

Carmen

Wednesday 26th June 2019

Help us celebrate our 30th anniversary as we team up with Rogue Opera for a performance of Bizet's Carmen.


Tickets: £30.00 (Inc. VAT)

We are delighted to work alongside Rogue Opera to celebrate our 30th anniversary with Bizet's opera Carmen.

We invite you to join us at the Wandsworth Town Hall Civic Suite on Wednesday 26th June 2019 from 6pm. There will be a paid bar and of course one of our famous tombolas, Spanish themed!

Ticket price includes food but please do help us by confirming if you would like the vegetarian or chicken option upon purchasing your ticket.

The performance will start at 7pm and Act 1 will run until 8.20pm.

There will then we an interval in the banquet room where food will be served from 8.30pm-9.40pm.

Act 2 will run from 9.45pm - 10.40pm. The bar will be open until 11.15pm.

Bizet's Carmen is one of the most popular and familiar operas, with it's music and characters known well outside the genre. But it is more than just a grand spectacle or operatic tragedy. When Bizet created Carmen from the short story by Prosper Merrimee, he broke operatic convention by celebrating proletarian and immoral ways of life. He also vividly brought to life the character of Carmen (almost a side note in the original text) as a complex, proud and spirited women who strove at every turn to claim independence and agency in her life, love and friendships.

Rogue Opera strips away the pomp and pageantry to present a raw and intimate piece of theatre, examining the power dynamics between people and social classes, through his tale of seduction, obsession, rejection and revenge, heightened by Bizet's captivating music.

We look forward to welcoming you in June to celebrate this special 30th anniversary with us. We will also be remembering our beloved founder and chair Patrick Lethaby who would have loved to have been able to celebrate this event with us.
