COMPOSER Frederick Chopin will be portrayed in drama and music when Michael Lunts returns to Thornbury with his one-man show Winter in Majorca.

The production is a play and concert rolled into one, with professional actor and classical pianist Lunts appearing as Chopin as man and musician in the drama about his stay in a deserted monastery with the so-called first modern liberated woman, George Sand.

  Incorporated into the action are live performances of some of the pieces Chopin composed while there.

The event on Saturday, September 9, starts at 7.30pm in the Cossham Hall and will be the first in an autumn series of concerts to raise funds for phase one of the Armstrong Hall redevelopment project.

Tickets cost £13 and are on sale in Thornbury Town Hall or can be obtained by phoning 01454 412272.
