    In the quiet gloom of the old curiosity shop, Little Nell Trent waits for her ailing grandfather’s return. Each night he leaves her all alone, disappearing into a secret shadowy world of seedy gaming houses and sleazy gambling dens. Already deep in debt to the stunted, lecherous and demonic money-lender Daniel Quilp, Nell’s grandfather clings on to the hope that his luck must surely change? But it never does, and when his shop is seized, grandfather and Little Nell are forced to flee. On their journey they meet some of Dickens’s greatest comic and grotesque creations. But will they evade the lustful clutches of the loathsome Quilp?
    Join us to find out…the chase is on!

    Creative Age Project  |  The Witham Arts Centre in Barnard Castle is seeking to recruit adults aged 55+ for a craft-based project led by local artist and former farmer, Trevor Dixon. Trevor produces beautifully detailed, miniature models of farmhouses, outbuildings and drystone walls using natural materials. These models reflect the landscape he has worked since adolescence.
    The project aims to bring together people who share a common background, i.e. working in rural Teesdale. While learning a new skill, or developing an existing one, it is hoped that the group will also use the session as an opportunity to socialise and share past experiences. The emphasis is very much on having an enjoyable afternoon in the company of like-minded people. No previous modelling experience is required, just enthusiasm! At the end of the project the work created by the participants will be displayed, alongside Trevor’s work, in the Gallery at The Witham during March 2020.

    Commitment: you must commit to attend weekly sessions on Thursdays, 2–4pm commencing 3rd October and concluding 27th February 2020. (No sessions over Christmas or New Year).
    Cost: This project is free of charge thanks to a grant from County Durham Community Foundation. Refreshments will be provided.
    Where: Sessions will take place at UTASS, 9-11 Chapel Row, Middleton-in-Teesdale, DL12 0SN

    Hailed as the UK’s most influential comedian of all time, legendary Scot Billy Connolly is coming to cinemas with this brilliant show from his final stand-up tour.

    Recorded in 2015, during the Australian leg, this whip smart routine is a riotous journey filled with outrageous tales and blistering observations of everyday absurdities. Screening as a special one-night-only event, Connolly will also muse upon his career, life and legacy in a deeply personal interview filmed exclusively for cinema audiences.

    Prior to retiring in 2016 following his diagnosis with Parkinson’s Disease, Connolly toured worldwide continuously for 50 years, performing to an audience of over 10 million. The Sex Life of Bandages is a big screen tribute to an iconic funny-man whose sharp wit and anarchic storytelling is still as hilarious as ever.

    ★★★★ ‘Can he still hold an audience in his thrall – warm us, cheer us, tickle us? Abso – Billy – lutely!‘ The Telegraph

    ★★★★ ‘Beautifully funny‘ The Guardian
    ★★★★ ‘Connolly has still got his funny bones‘ The Evening Standard

    Puccini’s opera of young love in 19th-century Paris is packed with beautiful music, including lyrical arias, celebratory choruses for Act II’s evocation of Christmas Eve in the Latin Quarter and a poignant final scene over which the composer himself wept. Richard Jones’s character-led production perfectly captures La bohème’s mixture of comedy, romance and tragedy, with striking designs by Stewart Laing. The cast features some of the greatest interpreters of Puccini’s bohemian lovers performing today, as well as former members of The Royal Opera’s Jette Parker Young Artists Programme.

    What if you were the only man on Earth able to remember the iconic music of The Beatles?
    A collaboration up there with Lennon-McCartney, Yesterday is the brain child of director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting) and screenwriter Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually).

    As full of soul and heart as any of the Liverpool lads best tracks, this is an hilarious story of finding your own voice. Jack’s (Himesh Patel) career as a singer-songwriter is not going well. His friend Ellie (Lily James) thinks he’s got talent, but no one else agrees. But after a mysterious blackout, it turns out he’s the only one who can recall the Fab Four’s back catalogue. With the iconic songs in his arsenal, he becomes world famous, but at what cost?

    “What’s it like being the best guitar player in the world…?” Martin’s modesty and grace prevented him from answering this BBC Radio 4 interviewer’s question recently, but the facts speak for themselves.

    The remarkable intimate solo performances Martin gives go from strength to strength – every gig is a masterclass. He travels the length and breadth of the UK and beyond, giving rapt audiences passion, sorrow, love, beauty, tragedy and majesty through his playing.

    40 years after he recorded his first album, Golden Vanity, in 1976, Martin is known as a guitarist of formidable talent. Equally at home playing English traditional folk, American folk and blues and his own compositions, he is consistently named as one of the very finest fingerstyle guitar players in the world.

    He is listed in Gibson Guitars’ Top 30 Acoustic Guitarists of all time, and Acoustic Guitar readers voted him number 12 guitarist in the world in 2005.

    Universally acclaimed as one of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players, and a fine banjo-picker to boot, his solo shows bear witness to an artist at the very top of his game. Whether interpreting material from tradition or singing his own potent self-penned songs, Simpson is a remarkable storyteller: captivating and profoundly moving. His own songwriting produced the poignant ‘Never Any Good’, from Prodigal Son, 2007’s Folk Album of the Year.

    Martin continues to collaborate with a dazzling array of people from across the musical spectrum: Jackson Browne, Martin Taylor, June Tabor, Richard Hawley, Bonnie Raitt, Danny Thompson, David Hidalgo, Danú, Richard Thompson and Dom Flemons are among the great musicians he has worked with.

    He was also nominated ‘Musician of the Year’ – BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2018

    Martin Simpson has transcended borders and oceans to quietly become a superb storyteller and musician of great depth and unquestionable taste.” Stephen Fearing

    Exploration, insight and imagination are vital ingredients in Melvyn Tan’s blend of artistic attributes. He established his international reputation in the 1980s with pioneering performances on fortepiano and continues to cast fresh light on music conceived for the piano’s early and modern forms.

    Tan possesses a profound understanding of his instrument’s history, its technical evolution and musical development. His performances of piano masterworks, whether on a late eighteenth-century fortepiano or today’s concert grand, penetrate the surface of interpretive traditions and received wisdom to reveal countless expressive nuances and rarely heard tonal contrasts.

    Acclaimed for the wit and poetry of his playing, Tan has also received ovations for his bold programming and exceptional ability to switch from fortepiano and modern piano, even in the same recital.

    Exploration, insight and imagination are vital ingredients in Melvyn Tan’s blend of artistic attributes. He established his international reputation in the 1980s with pioneering performances on fortepiano and continues to cast fresh light on music conceived for the piano’s early and modern forms.

    Creative Age Project  |  The Witham Arts Centre in Barnard Castle is seeking to recruit adults aged 55+ for a craft-based project led by local artist and former farmer, Trevor Dixon. Trevor produces beautifully detailed, miniature models of farmhouses, outbuildings and drystone walls using natural materials. These models reflect the landscape he has worked since adolescence.
    The project aims to bring together people who share a common background, i.e. working in rural Teesdale. While learning a new skill, or developing an existing one, it is hoped that the group will also use the session as an opportunity to socialise and share past experiences. The emphasis is very much on having an enjoyable afternoon in the company of like-minded people. No previous modelling experience is required, just enthusiasm! At the end of the project the work created by the participants will be displayed, alongside Trevor’s work, in the Gallery at The Witham during March 2020.

    Commitment: you must commit to attend weekly sessions on Thursdays, 2–4pm commencing 3rd October and concluding 27th February 2020. (No sessions over Christmas or New Year).

    Matthew Bourne’s Romeo and Juliet has been hailed as ‘the single most eagerly awaited dance show for 2019’ by The Daily Telegraph. This passionate and contemporary re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic story of love and conflict is set in the not too distant future in ‘The Verona Institute’. Here ‘difficult’ young people are mysteriously confined by a society that seeks to divide and crush their youthful spirit and individuality. Our two young lovers must follow their hearts as they risk everything to be together. A timeless story of forbidden love, repressed emotions and teenage discovery, filmed live at Sadler’s Wells in London especially for cinemas.
    Bursting with youth, vitality and Matthew Bourne’s trademark storytelling, the UK’s brightest young dance talent join the New Adventures company, with direction and choreography by Matthew Bourne, design by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable, sound by Paul Groothuis and new orchestrations of the Prokofiev score by Terry Davies, played live by the New Adventures Orchestra conducted by Brett Morris.

    ★★★★★    ‘ELECTRIFYING. One of Bourne’s smartest, SEXIEST, most stirring shows EVER’    DAILY MAIL
    ★★★★★    ‘STORYTELLING at its finest, should not be missed’    DAILY EXPRESS

    Born from the work of the duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin, Edgelarks combine exquisite folk with influences as diverse as the blues and Indian classical slide guitar, to create a sound that is “Subtle, atmospheric and bravely original” (The Guardian).

    The BBC Folk Award winners take their strong roots sound, mixing original songwriting with stomping beatbox harmonica, soaring fiddle and vocal harmonies, running wilder with each repeat play. A busy collaborative period has included work as part of the Gigspanner Big Band (featuring members of Bellowhead and Steeleye Span); and performing at BBC Radio Two’s Festival In A Day to a Hyde Park crowd of 50,000 – supporting Kylie Minogue!

    Now they are back on the road with their formidable live show, making much more noise than only two people should be able to, taking audiences on a story telling journey around a new musical landscape.

    production, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Jonas Kaufmann plays the political prisoner Florestan, and Lise Davidsen his wife Leonore (disguised as ‘Fidelio’) who daringly sets out to rescue him. Set in strong counterpoint are the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determined love and the cruelty of an oppressive regime. The music is transcendent throughout and includes the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners’ Chorus and Florestan’s impassioned Act II cry in the darkness and vision of hope. Tobias Kratzer’s new staging brings together the dark reality of the French Revolutionary ‘Terror’ and our own time to illuminate Fidelio’s inspiring message of shared humanity.

    James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.
    Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all – if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano – or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?
    Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.

    Presented by the University of Leeds Theatre & Performance students as part of the Year of the Dealer project.

    Quinneys is a comedy-drama of love, money, social climbing and fakes and forgeries set in the world of antique dealing.

    Written in 1914 by Horace Annesley Vachell (1861-1955) and based on the real-life antique dealer Thomas Rohan (1860-1940), the play tells the story of Joseph Quinney, a hard-nosed antique dealer, stubborn but endearing and keen to see his daughter marry well.

    The performance of Quinneys is part of ‘Year of the Dealer’, an Arts & Humanities Research Council project organised by the University of Leeds. Directed by George Rodosthenous with actors from the Theatre & Performance programme at the University of Leeds, the play was hugely popular in its day and this performance will be the first in more than 50 years.

    Your £5 includes an invitation the wine reception from 6.30 pm.
