Programme Note

Vision explores the extraordinary life of the visionary medieval abbess Hildegard of Bingen, providing an insight into the painful and visceral visionary experiences Hildegard suffered throughout her life. It is an “imagined testimony” as Hildegard, played by actor Teresa Banham (subject to availability), revisits and re-experiences meaningful memories alongside her haunting and distinctive chant, with full staging and stunning lighting. 


"[The singers] are mesmerising in the music. An austerely beautiful piece about a woman whose faith gave her extraordinary strength and courage" 

The Guardian 


From 7pm, Folkestone History Society will give a 30-minute talk on St Eanswythe, an Anglo-Saxon princess, who is said to have founded Folkestone Priory, one of the first Christian monastic communities for women in Britain.
