About this event
For two nights in 1972, Aretha Franklin went back to her roots to perform in a Los Angeles Baptist church. The recordings became ‘Amazing Grace’, her most successful album and still the top-selling gospel record of all time; but the accompanying footage (shot by the late Sydney Pollack) has never before been shown on screen.
It’s a revelation, even to those familiar with her extraordinary talent. In a spare, stripped back setting, Franklin and her audience commune spiritually, soulfully and emotionally via the transcendent power of her phenomenal, awe-inspiring voice. Unmissable.
“an abundance of time-capsule treasures” ★★★★★ Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
