MU­SIC en­thu­si­asts were able to cel­e­brate the Chi­nese new year in style on Satur­day, with a spe­cial con­cert at St Mary’s Church in Ash­ford. The in­ter­na­tion­ally-recog­nised per­form­ers of the UK Chi­nese Mu­sic Ensem­ble were per­form­ing their reper­toire of mod­ern and classical Chi­nese mu­sic, as part of the Equa­tor mu­sic project. This se­ries of con­certs, or­gan­ised by Ten­ter­den-based mu­si­cian Priti Pain­tal, is bring­ing vir­tu­oso per­form­ers from all over the world to the bor­ough, in­clud­ing her own group, ShivaNova. Priti said: “I’ve been in Ten­ter­den since 1992, and we’ve gone to play ev­ery­where else in the county, but never Ash­ford, and now fi­nally, fin­gers crossed, it’s tak­ing off.” The next event in the se­ries sees the Mul­ti­story Theatre Com­pany putting on a pro­duc­tion for all the fam­ily at Brake Hall in Ash­ford School this Satur­day. Tattercoats blends tra­di­tional songs and mu­sic from the Far East with com­puter an­i­ma­tion, act­ing and danc­ing.

All tick­ets are £6, and the per­for­mance be­gins at 5pm. To book, call 01233 629165 or visit
