The Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) is one of 47 Wildlife Trusts working across the UK to achieve the shared aim of securing a better future for wildlife.

BBOWT was founded in 1959 (as the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Naturalist Trust -  BBONT) by local ecologists who could see the extent of harm being done to the wonderfully rich natural environment of the three counties. For over 50 years we have worked with local people to make Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire richer in wildlife.

BBOWT currently has about 54,000 members and more than 1,300 active volunteers. It is thanks to our members and volunteers that we are able to keep going - we do not receive any core governmental funding. Our income comes from a range of sources including grants, legacies, business support and charitable trusts donations, but most important of all are our membership subscriptions......

Bracknell Choral Society's  Spring Concert, Carmina Burana, will be on  Sunday 29th March 7pm in The Great Hall of Reading University, RG1 5AG.

Bracknell Choral Society will present Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, one of the most popular and exciting choral works of the twentieth century. Although originally written to be staged, the cantata will be performed as a choral piece, with soloists and a children's choir, accompanied by two pianos and a range of percussion.

The songs tell of the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the nature of life, the joy of Spring and the pleasures of drinking, gluttony, gambling and love. Much of the work is based on the turning Wheel of Fortune, beginning with the dramatic ‘O Fortuna’, which is well-known from its use in many films and adverts. The songs were originally based on 24 medieval secular poems discovered in Beuren in Bavaria in 1803, and they are sung in a mix of Latin, German and medieval French.
