David is a Norwich-based printmaker with a reputation for capturing the beauty of our fine city:

“Evidence of the past is all around us if we look closely enough. Modern streets follow old tracks and many of today’s buildings stand on lines fixed hundreds if not thousands of years ago. I am particularly interested in architecture, though many of my prints are about people. They may well depict contemporary life but in fact they are still concerned with history since I am recording what will in time become history.”

The Pasture and The Plough

On Sunday 11th December, The Assembly House Trust, working in partnership with Cinema City Education, proudly presented The Pasture and The Plough, an evening of live music and archive film.

The event featured a selection of archive films of rural Norfolk and Suffolk from the East Anglian Film Archive, brought to life by an original live musical soundtrack from composer Alex Carson and members of Wooden Arms.

Our Daily Bread (1938)– Made on location near Hemsby, Norfolk just before the war. Engineer and amateur film enthusiast Alex Bax filmed his family in scenes of the harvest, threshing and milling as his summer ‘production’ of ‘Our Daily Bread’.

A Celebration of Midsummer (1966)– Produced for the BBC, this film features pastoral scenes of village life, from midsummer bonfires to wheat stooked in the fields and cows grazing.
The Story of a Norfolk Farm (1930s)- The day to day life on a busy Norfolk farm in the 1930s is shown in this instructional film, detailing all the processes that keep the farm running throughout the year.

The Herncrake Witch (1913)– An excerpt from a silent supernatural short film by Heron Films. Sir Blondel visits a local school with his son, insisting that Jackeydawra, granddaughter of the ‘Herncrake Woman’, should be allowed to attend, much to the dismay of the girls in the classroom. Running to the woods, Jackeydawra encounters her grandmother, a witch, sparking a fantastical chain of events…

The event was proudly supported by The Assembly House Trust, in partnership with Cinema City Education.

The evening was a great success with an enthusiastic audience treated to a rousing performance from Alex Carson and Wooden Arms, giving a new perspective on the heritage of the county.
