The Old Jewish Cemetery, off Lambhay Hill, opened to the public for the first time in its history recently and the Ripple Theatre Collective have produced an audio tour to try and bring a sense of the people buried there.
At the Barbican New Street artists (Studio 2), I met Dave Crocker and Glyn White. I did a painting course led by Dave at Wembury a few years ago, just after he had finished his SW Coast Path 365 project, producing a painting a day en route.
Following the trail of events into town, then back along the Barbican to the galleries, we stumbled upon the Elizabethan Garden; an oasis tucked away in a quiet courtyard.
I came home filled with inspiration, armed with a red silk scarf and a dressed crab!
