Basildon Arts Forum launched… and Old Man Stan on the fate of “The Woodsman” #woodsman #toryfail

Exciting news from Basildon’s artistic community.

The first “Basildon Arts Forum” is to be held at St Martin’s Church Hall, Basildon Town Centre on Monday 1st March at 7pm. Anyone interested in seeing a thriving artistic community in Basildon is welcome. As spaces have to be limited for health and safety reasons please drop an email to Liz Grant if you are intending to come: lizzy_grant@btopenworld.com.

Also, in the best traditions of anti-establishment art, the irreverent Old Man Stan has decided to share his views on the fate of “The Woodsman”. He really is the most incredible creation, sort of like Alf Garnett crossed with Statler and Waldorf and “Grandad Trotter”. I hope that those it lampoons remember that satire in Britain has a handsome pedigree – and take it in the spirit of Fousgasse and Hogarth.

Or at least Spitting Image.

  1. Whilst anyone can and is entitled to launch a site – I think once the meeting on 1st Marhc has been held this name can be confirmed or another name adopted. At the mmoment I think it is confusing to those who are attending due to the Woodsman issue and those who are attending because of the bigger picture that the Woodsman is indicative of. Suggestions for the name of our organisation, association or group would be more than welcome.
