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.

    Back in 1986, an ordinary home in suburban Derby was the unlikely setting for some puzzling paranormal activity. Inspired by his favourite film, little Gareth became a self-appointed Ghostbuster to launch an investigation into his playful poltergeist. 

    Join us for a nostalgic trip back to the 80s; a comic exploration of a childhood haunting where nothing is quite what it seems — all wrapped up in some formidable fashions and set to a cheese-tastic chart-topping soundtrack.

    Dan Webster is described as ‘one of the U.K’s best kept musical secrets and one not to miss!’ and an ‘An insightful lyricist with a great voice’ Acoustic Magazine. According to Americana UK - ‘He is the missing link, the joining point, where folk fuses with country – as good as you’ll hear on any record out of Austin or Nashville - beautiful – he is Anglicana’. Dan is a road seasoned English singer-songwriter, his music is influenced by the sounds and storytelling traditions of American and British Folk music, which he uniquely blends into his own distinct fusion of Folk and Americana.

    Dan’s second album release DIAMOND LAND (2008) received a number of plays on BBC Radio 2 and was well received critically in the press. His 2012 single release Frank Dalton was nominated for Fatea magazine’s track of the year and the press were unanimous about his 2015 release THE TIN MAN.

    “THE TIN MAN will make it on to a fair few ‘Best Of’ lists, and deservedly so." Maverick Magazine ****

    “Mixing folk, country and even a little rock ‘n’ roll, all delivered with a clear, distinctive voice, some great playing and an immaculate sound, it stopped me in my tracks.” Folk Radio UK – The Tin Man – featured album Feb 2015

    “The Tin Man may forever be in search of a heart on the road, Dan Webster has it in abundance and it shows with each passing song on his latest album.” Liverpool Sound and Vision ****

    ‘He is the missing link, the joining point, where folk fuses with country – as good as you’ll hear on any record out of Austin or Nashville - beautiful, a malleable mash of folk, country and Alt rock.’ Americana UK 9/10

    “His delivery is passionate, this album boasts a big, big heart.” Folk Radio UK

    Dan is a formidable live performer, having played too many shows to count over the years, and has shared the bill with acts such as The Levellers, Seth Lakeman, Glen Tilbrook, Martin Carthy and Midge Ure to name a few. Live, Dan inspires attention; pulling you into his work with finely crafted melodies and lyrics - delivered with a powerful and honest vocal...fantastic solo, or with his band.
