About the Hall

Mickleton Village Hall was built in 1993, on the site of the no-longer-habitable 100 year old Church Institute. It’s a full-sized, award winning hall, built in one year entirely by the enthusiastic efforts of virtually everyone in the village. The Hall was formally opened by the Earl of Strathmore on Jan 1st 1994 and has been well used ever since. Its prime purpose is to serve the village and it’s three associated parishes; but its size and layout make it an ideal choice for private parties, weddings etc and business functions. It is also a popular venue for visiting theatre companies and musical events from R’n’B to choral concerts. It is used by a variety of clubs and organisations as well as Parish council meetings and much more besides. The hall is available for hire for: • Meetings/Seminars • Social Events • Wedding Receptions • Fairs and Sales • Rehearsals • Training • Functions • Parties • Dances • Sports Classes • Stage Productions/Concerts • Presentations with IT facilities Regular activities ongoing in the hall include the Cinema Club, Teesdale Day Clubs, stage productions and concerts and the extremely popular R ‘n’ B nights. To visit the MICKLETON LIVE website please click on the link below: http://mickletonlive.uk

The Village

Mickleton is a busy yet peaceful farming village in the valley beside the River Tees. The village has a population of around 350 and sits on what used to be the borders of the North Yorkshire Moors until the boundaries were redrawn to shift us into County Durham. But the views are still as beautiful! There are two thriving pubs, The Crown and the Blacksmiths Arms, a busy village garage, Mickleton Service Station, and a Post Office in the hall. ‘Beckstones Wath’ the new footbridge over the Tees – pictured above – with its connecting footpaths is becoming increasingly popular with walkers.

    Starring: Jude Hill, Judi Dench, Jamie Dornan

    Director & Writer: Kenneth Branaugh

    Brief synopsis: Kenneth Branaugh's Belfast is an autobiographical account from his childhood. It depicts a story about a young boy and his working class family experiencing the tumultuous late 1960s in the hometown of Belfast. I'm going to say it, I've never been taken away by Branaugh's direction in the past. He's a great actor and all, but when it comes to filmmaking, everything I've seen from him has either just been okay or disappointed. Maybe it's because he's never made something as personal as this. Though I don't think it's as wonderful as everyone makes it out to be, I did find myself enjoying Belfast. It manages to create a story centered around family and what it feels like to be a child growing up in a place that's dear to you. With the story being almost auto-biographical, you see the world as Branaugh did. It's a fun and lovely story, even if it touches on heavier subjects like loss and riots. I found the screenplay to be written well. Honestly, this movie could very well be considered a comedy. It's full of humor and light. Still, it can play out a bit melodramatic, especially the end. The ending for me was a little abrupt. I was told there was going to be a scene full of emotion to make everyone cry, but that moment passed and it was the end. I'm glad it ended on that note instead of Branaugh's original ending which had a documentary sort of thing going on and him returning to Belfast. Luckily we have editors to cut things out.

    Katie Doherty formed the Navigators in 2018. Their power and dynamic is often described as much bigger than its component parts. Katie’s songs hang on the precipice of the current state of the world. There is enormous heart filled hope but there is much riding on where we go from here. The songs paint sweeping pictures and intricate portraits of NHS Workers, Musicians, Teachers, Artists, Protesters and Parents. They are rooted in a craggy North East landscape looking outwards across the sea, with a telescopic lens pointing firmly up, out and forward to the best future possible.
    Listen for echos of Regina Spektor, Nancy Kerr, Guy Garvey and Anais Mitchell all of whose influence can be found within the sound of FLOW.
    The music exudes heart, warmth and melody which leaves you feeling uplifted and welcomed.
    * With support from local Teesdale musicians Florence Backes and Nigel Fletcher

    Director: Kat Coiro

    Brief synopsis: Kat Valdez is half of the sexiest celebrity power couple on Earth with hot new music supernova Bastian. As Kat and Bastian's inescapable hit single, "Marry Me," climbs the charts, they are about to be wed before an audience of their fans in a ceremony that will stream across multiple platforms. Divorced high-school math teacher Charlie Gilbert has been dragged to the concert by his daughter Lou and his best friend Parker Debbs. When Kat learns, seconds before the ceremony, that Bastian has cheated on her with her assistant, her life turns left as she has a meltdown on stage, questioning love, truth, and loyalty. As her gossamer world falls away, she locks eyes with a stranger-a face in the crowd. If what you know lets you down, then perhaps what you don't know is the answer, and so, in a moment of inspired insanity, Kat chooses to marry Charlie. What begins as an impulsive reaction evolves into an unexpected romance. But as forces conspire to separate them, the universal question arises: Can two people from such different worlds bridge the gulf between them and build a place where they both belong?
