HENLEY LIFE - April 2018
Welcome to our Spring issue, which is brimful of hopeful portents for the season ahead. With any luck the snow is behind us, the daffodils are in full bloom, and the tulips and bluebells are beginning to poke their heads above the thawing ground.
During early Spring the local area is host to some wonderful art exhibitions not to be missed. The Henley Arts Trail is held over the bank holiday weekend with craftmakers and artists such as
jeweller Wendy Penrose and artist Este MacLeod, featured on page 14.
As part of our regular feature about women who inspire us, we interview Assendon Glass artist, Anne Arlidge, who features on this year's arts trail. Turn to page 12 to read about how she reinvented herself as an
artist and at the age of 73 continues to evolve and develop her work. Another iconic female artist is celebrated British sculptress Barbara Hepworth who we feature in relation to the River and Rowing Museum's exhibition of some of her most outstanding work.
In this edition Nicky Bird continues his reminiscences on local stately homes. At this time of year they are well worth a visit for an insight into their fascinating history, architecture and magnificent gardens. See page 16.
This month's My Henley Life is real life lady of the manor and actor, Lucy Fleming. Our Meet the Founders feature is all about the rise of healthy eating bakers, Melissa Sharp and
Lindsay Stark who are set to revolutionise the food industry form their kitchen in Kidlington, Oxfordshire. Less healthy, but enjoyable nonetheless, we review a wine tasting evening at Phyllis Court Club with master of wines Richard Bampfield on page 19.
With Spring comes fragrance and this month we highlight new perfumes on the market. And fashion covers easy-to-wear pieces for special occasions whatever the weather has in store. Meanwhile, If you always wanted the perfect pout turn to page 22 to get the low-down from Henley Clinic's medical aesthetics expert, Dr Daria.
With lighter evenings and beautiful countryside to explore what's not to love about early Spring? Have fun and we hope that you enjoy this April edition of Henley Life.
