NO WORDS can adequately describe the awe inspiring beauty of Martin Fry's audio visual presentation, 'Cotswold and Cornish Cream'.

Combining his own superb photographs with poetry and music from Cornwall and the Cotswolds, Martin gave us an experience to treasure.

We followed the Severn to the sea.

We watched transfixed as mists rose from our commons and valleys.

We wondered at the rich variety of nature - fields of Cornish daffodils and Cotswold poppies, the exotic fruits of Heligan, the Longhope orchards, bluebells on May Hill and fritillaries in Cricklade's water meadows.

But there were solemn, thought provoking moments too, as wild garlic flowers in Slad's sunken lanes were slowly transposed into the trenches of 1917 Flanders and Johnny Coppin sang Frank Mansell's haunting, "He will not walk again by Severn tide."

John Betjeman's, "Cornish Love," set the mood for fantastic seascapes.

Peaceful, crystal clear water slowly turned into a raging storm and then back again to the consoling sea of the poem.

It was all so amazingly beautiful and clever.

But "The Mousehole Cat", an audio visual version of the children's book by Antonia Barber was possibly the star of the show.

Martin's skilful fusion of his photographs with narration and illustrations from the book was utterly delightful.

There was more - a tribute to the Cornish tin miners, "Postcards from Cornwall" and a journey through the seasons, all enhanced by Johnny Coppin's music.

It was certainly an evening to remember.
