                                              The picture depicting the unique landscape of
                                          Bournemouth incorporating, the river Bourne, and our

                                           incorporate using song and dance in a performance,
                                              with a finale uniting the children to become a
                                                contemporary landscape of Bournemouth.



         The ‘living’ picture will be photographed from the air and made into a commemorative
       postcard of the occasion. There is a unique opportunity for local businesses to get involved
        in the project through sponsorship support. This ambitious project coordinated by ‘Room

      Visitors to the website will be able to see how their own street developed by clicking down
        through a layer of historical maps. They’ll also be able to call up associated images and
       information about Bournemouth’s people and buildings, its development as a health and
                   seaside resort, and many other defining aspects of the town’s story.

       10 Sept 2010                 UK Business Book Festival 2010
        On Friday 10 September, Bournemouth will host the first ever UK Business Book Festival.
       The festival has secured top names, including Rachel Elnaugh from Dragon’s Den and Geoff
        Burch, ‘Britain’s Toughest Business Guru’, who appeared on the BBC programme All Over
       the Shop. There will also be talks on How to Start Your own Café and How to Launch Your
                  Own Airline from people who have done it, and lived to tell the tale.

         The event will be a festival of entrepreneurs, rather like the fringe at a Party Political
       Conference, with dozens of seminars with different speakers taking place on several floors
                      of the new Executive Business Centre on Holdenhurst Road.

       The first UK Business Book Festival will be a chance to meet people with ideas and visions,
          which could change the world and make money. The conurbation, with its dozens of
            different business groups, is already the networking capital of Britain. This is an
       opportunity to widen the town’s horizons and win the town an international reputation for
                                      its character and dynamism.

                                         coastal settings into a series of magical worlds.
        The festival starts with dance performances in the Town Square from 2.30pm – 7pm and then the
      world premiere of “Congregation”, a new interactive video installation in Bournemouth Square,
       created by KMA and curated by SCAN, that turns pedestrians into performers as they interact
       with projected images, colours and shapes. “Congregation” will be in the Square from Friday
                                     10th – Sunday 19th from 7.30-11pm.

         The festival continues with a weekend of free outdoor dance-inspired events, presented in
            partnership with Pavilion Dance. Expect the unexpected as town centre locations are
       transformed by thrilling outdoor dance: Bournemouth Square on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th
      will host English premieres of Trajets de Ville (at 10am) and Trajets de Vie (at 4pm), whilst the
      new Pavilion Dance Terrace will see the highly entertaining “Tracking” from integrated dance
                   company StopGAP on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th at 2pm and 3.30pm.

       StopGAP will be leading a workshop at Pavilion Dance on Sunday 12th at 10am. You can also
      meet the artists, choreographers and curators at Pavilion Dance on Saturday 11th September at
                             6:30pm and hear a discussion about their work.

                          Don’t miss the First Pavilion Dance performance…
        In 1983, Tom illegally taped the very first ‘Now That’s What I Call Music’ LP onto a C60
          cassette. 25years later he played it to Pete and they made a show about it. Britain’s
       funniest dancers deconstruct this classic album to inspire new moves that shed their own
                               twisted light on then, the future and now.

      The performance will take place at 9pm in the Ocean Room, Pavilion Dance and tickets are

          to                 a Summer
      30 Oct 2010
                         In May 1816 Mary and Percy Shelley travelled to Lake Geneva to stay with
                           the infamous Lord Byron. It was here; late at night by candlelight that
                           Mary discussed her fascination of the medical experiments of the 18th
                         century. Prompted by her imagination, Byron forms a challenge- for Mary
                                    to create a supernatural story entirely of her own…

                            The Dorset Corset Theatre Company bring their own unique style of
                         theatrical magic, live music and drama to this fantastic tale! The Shelley
                           Manor Theatre, Boscombe, will host this production for four nights in
                         October 2010. This is your opportunity to see a theatre production in the
                           very theatre that was built for the Shelley Family back in the 1800’s.

                         Tickets are £15 per person on Weds 27th and Thurs 28th and £20 per person
                                                  on Fri 29th and Sat 30th.

      28 Oct 2010                            Boscombe Vintage Market
                                   Boscombe Crescent will be host to the first Boscombe Vintage
                                  Market on Thursday 28th October between the hours of 10am and

                                   Inspired by London markets such as Camden and Spitalfields, this
                                     high class vintage market with ‘a creative edge’ will be selling
                                 textiles, clothing, jewellery, furniture, collectables and unique hand
                                                             crafted goods.

                                    Organisers believe the Vintage Market has major potential in the
                                  area, shown by the high interest from businesses to be involved and
                                   are planning to do a series of markets, rather than a one off. This
                                   will help fulfill the objective of new investment for the area and a
                                   number of businesses will be watching the success of the Vintage
                                    Market as an indicator for the areas potential. The event is also
                                     supported by BARG (Boscombe Area Regeneration Group), the
                                    umbrella group that is growing to represent businesses and local

      parade of ex-service men and women, pre-service and youth organisations will be marching
         from Exeter Crescent, through the Town Centre and the Central Gardens to the War
                                              Memorial.

      After the service, there will be a wreath laying ceremony. The parade will re-form for the
      March Past in the Central Gardens and will march back through the Town Centre, to Exeter
                                               Crescent.

       Veterans wishing to take part in the parade should go to Exeter Crescent by 10.20 am and
      await instructions from the Parade Commander. Alternatively, veterans may go straight to
                    the War Memorial if they are unable to take part in the parade.

       Youth organisations will be handing out Orders of Service to members of the public so that
      they can join in the service – Bourne Avenue provides an excellent viewing area for both the
                                          service and parades.


      15 Nov 2010                 Crab by the Sea: A Sideways Look at
                                  Architecture
          As part of the Bicentenary celebrations, The Gallery at the AUCB are holding an
          exhibition by CRAB (Cook Robotham and Architectural Bureau) from Monday 15th
                              November through to 7th January 2011.

      Throughout his career Sir Peter Cook has been an enthusiastic communicator of innovative
      approaches to architectural design. A founding member of the Archigram group (1961-74)
                      he has had a profound influence on architectural theory.

         This exhibition is co-curated between CRAB and Simon Beeson and is the most recent
          manifestation of Cook’s ideas, focusing on both the realisation of projects and the
        continuing dissemination of architechural ideas. It celebrates the joint inspirations of
       experimental architecture and of the seaside (the heritage of both Cook and Robotham).

            This calendar reflects upon the events held in connection with Bournemouth’s Centenary
                     Celebrations but is not intended to be a detailed historical document.

              It is hoped that the views and information within this calendar will convey a flavour of
               some of the scenes and events from 1910, together with a brief understanding of the
                                                      town.
