Potted Herring

In 2010 Diana and Tim Laycock performed “Potted Herring” in East Chaldon Church,near Lulworth Cove, Dorset. This was as a result of discovering the village (also known as Chaldon Herring)and its’ literary and artistic history. In 1930s it drew writers and artists to live and work there, in particular The Powys Family. Phillipa Powys, inspired by the land she worked on, wrote the poems that were used in the concert and interspersed with Diana Johnstone & Tim Laycocks’ music. Tim, also an actor and director, read most of the poems and Diana Johnstone set the poem “Ploughing” to music. The Powys Society ¬†supported the event.
