How to Dress When You Are Not Surfing

Consideration has been given for the editing and publishing of this post

When the surf is up so are you. Riding those waves like you don’t have a care in the world. But when the surf is low and you are not on the water than you might need to wear something more dinner appropriate if you decide to go to dinner this evening instead of roasting hotdogs on the beach. Whether you are going out to dinner with a date, your significant other or some friends you should present yourself in the best manner possible. It is a known fact that what you wear can say a lot about you as well as how you feel about yourself. According to an article by Scientific American, your personal mental and physical state could very well be influenced by the clothes you wear. According to an article on Forbes, since we don’t have a system to determine classes such as an aristocracy we use our clothes to determine out ranks. A study from Northwestern University attempted to explain a concept they referred to as ‘enclothed cognition’. What this concept says is that your clothes speak to you and not about you. What we wear can determine how we feel and our feelings can determine our mood. The moral of the story is simple, wear what makes you feel good about yourself.

All the right notes, and in the right order: DUNCAN HONEYBOURNE and NDS play Grieg at the Landmark

North Devon’s resident symphony orchestra, the North Devon Sinfonia, is joined by one of the UK’s leading pianists in the famous Grieg Piano Concerto at the Landmark Theatre on Saturday 10th May.

Award-winning pianist, teacher and broadcaster Duncan Honeybourne is the soloist in the Grieg A minor concerto – a work which audiences of a certain age will remember being murdered by Eric Morcambe in the classic 1971 comedy sketch.

Mercifully – unlike Morcambe, who famously played “all the right notes; but not necessarily in the right order” – Duncan can be relied upon to give a sparkling performance of this much-loved concerto.

A graduate of the Royal Academy of Music and Birmingham Conservatoire, Duncan tours extensively as a recitalist and can often be heard performing on Radio 3. He is also currently Tutor in Piano at Southampton University and gives regular masterclasses and lecture recitals.

In 1999, at the age of 22, Duncan was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. He has since built a reputation as a thought-provoking and entertaining speaker on his experience of life on the autistic spectrum.

Duncan’s performance will mark the climax of a thrilling concert by the North Devon Sinfonia at the Landmark. Other works in the programme include Mendelssohn’s overture The Hebrides, the Slavonic Dance No.8 by Dvorak and Stravinsky’s dramatic orchestral suite from his ballet The Firebird.

• North Devon Sinfonia performs at 8:00pm on Saturday, 10th May at the Landmark Theatre, Ilfracombe. All seats £12 (under-18s free) and are available from North Devon Theatres box office: 01271 32 42 42. www.northdevontheatres.org.uk
