The Power of Compassion

Tashi Lhunpo Monastery Tour 2004

St Michael's Church, Mytholmroyd

8.00pm (to 10.00pm approx) 8 (6)

Following their triumphant sell-out performance at the 2002 Festival, we are delighted to welcome back the monks from Tashi Lhunpo. They bring a programme of dances, music and chants, which illustrate the full range and diversity of this astonishing culture. The monastery (established in South India following the Chinese occupation of Tibet) is famous for its unique traditions of masked dances and sacred music.

An inspiring and moving journey through the mind of the visionary genius William Blake by Britain's leading poetry and prose performer, Ruth Rosen. Poet, painter, engraver and prophet, William Blake was one of England's most fascinating and original sons.
