,Lara is one of our "goo.gl/uNG6onlocals" even if she has chosen to settle down in the Midlands. You never really leave Hogsback. You always leave a part of your soul here in the hearts and minds of those who live here. She will be fondly remembered for her "wild and whimsical" daring act of cycling down the Hogsback pass in the nude. (see https://goo.gl/uNG6on). Maybe we can bring some of that excitement back?
So we are extra delighted to have her back here even if it is just for a short while, to perform her current acclaimed recital called "the Resonating Pulse". The recital will take place at 3pm at Back of the Moon on Sunday 23 July. To book you place contact Norma, 0459621017. It includes a glass of Sherry.

Even though it was bitterly cold during our #AutumnCelebration, we had lots of gluhwine, good cheer and activities to keep us all warm! From the unique music events, to the very successful cooking demos, a lot of fun was had by all those who dared to braved the cold!
The children learned how to create their own permaculture garden while the adults attended the very interesting talks by local fundis on topics from permaculture to the history of some of our amazing gardens.
As this was our first #autumncelebration, we were still finding our feet and did not quite bargain on the severe cold hampering some of the outdoor activities. Luckily not all the autumn leaves got washed away by the rain, and the garden enthusiasts had a glimpse of the radiant beauty of Hogsback in Autumn. St Patrick on the Hill chapel had a lovely exibition of autumn themed flower arrangements.
The celebration dinners, high tea, food pairing, sheep in a barrel and cooking demo catered for all the different foodie tastes and Hogsback is quickly establishing itself as a connoisseur food destination.
The #wintercelebration will be even bigger and better, so keep your eyes peeled for more information and go and have a look at the provisional draft programme with more items being addedd daily!
