Barnard Castle - Main Shot

Witham Hall Barnard Castle

The Town

Barnard Castle has been recognised nationally as one of the 50 most historically and architecturally important towns in Great Britain and listed in The Sunday Times Best Places to Live in Britain. The Grade II listed Witham Hall is an important, central feature of the townscape, located where Horsemarket meets the Market Place.


The Hall

The Witham Testimonial was built by public subscription as a memorial to Henry T.M. Witham of Lartington, a palaeobotanist and philanthropist who had strived to make provision for the medical and educational needs of Barnard Castle before his death in 1844. Hence the building, which opened in 1846, housed the Mechanics' Institute and a Dispensary for the Relief of the Sick Poor. By 1860, a large music hall had been built to the rear of the Testimonial Building, whilst the premises later incorporated several small cottages in Hall Street. Together these buildings became known as The Witham and have continued to be used by the people of Barnard Castle as a backdrop for celebration, for participation and for people to gain new experiences.

2013 marks the culmination of over 10 years work to raise money and carry out work to restore its historic fabric and make The Witham fit-for-purpose as a fully accessible modern arts venue for the 21st century. The redevelopment project has seen the original Grade II listed Witham buildings restored, and a new link building constructed between the Witham Testimonial and the Event Hall, incorporating a foyer area, café bar and toilets. In addition, Durham County Council has extended and refurbished its Library building to the rear of The Witham buildings, to include new council offices and a customer access point as well as the continued Library service.

Funding of the project principally came from Durham County Council investing over £2 million with match funding of £336,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and £773,879 from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The ERDF funding is part of a wider programme which has brought more than £300 million to the North East. The Witham and Library development project was led by Barnard Castle Vision, Durham County Council and The Witham Directors.

18:30 to 22:00 Glyndebourne : Béatrice et Bénédict
Love conquers all in Berlioz's sparkling take on Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. From Elizabeth and Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, to Hermione and Ron in the Harry Potter series, the age-old premise of verbal sparring to mask true feelings of love or passion is employed to magnificent effect in Berlioz’s Béatrice et Bénédict. Berlioz selected the sunniest and funniest elements of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and set them to ravishing music to create this witty love-hate duel. The opera’s overture explodes with a buoyant sense of fun and elegant wit and there are several splendid numbers for the female characters, especially the sublime Act I duet-nocturne, described by one critic as a ‘marvel of indescribable lyrical beauty’. Conducted by Robin Ticciati and seen through the unique vision of director Laurent Pelly, Berlioz’s comic gem makes its long-awaited Glyndebourne premiere in Festival 2016. With the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Glyndebourne Chorus. Sung in French with English subtitles. Part of the Shakespeare400 celebrations.

10:30 David Gibb : Letter through your Door
Musician, song-writer and story-teller. David Gibb is an award winning song writer, story teller and tallest man in Derbyshire on a mission to create great music for children and families. At just 23 years old he’s already had his music played on BBC Radios 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6, performed at Glastonbury Festival (amongst many others), played over 400 concerts, been nominated for a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award as part of the duo ‘David Gibb & Elly Lucas’, and won the highly commended prize at the Young Story Teller of the Year competition (2011). Frustrated at the lack of high quality music available for children, and inspired by the strong independent children’s music movement in America, he set himself the mission of writing an album of songs aimed at families, with quality and musicianship and song writing being the focus. The result is ‘Letters Through Your Door’, a fun and exciting album and stage show packed full of catchy and toe tapping numbers.

Magnificent...a feast of imaginative music The Telegraph Since his departure from folk-rock pioneers Steeleye Span at the end of 2013, legendary fiddle player Peter Knight has turned his full attention to his trio Gigspanner, and in the process has firmly established their burgeoning reputation as one of the most innovative acts on the folk/roots scene. Justifiably met with significant critical acclaim, Gigspanners riveting new album Layers of Ages sees the band blowing the dust from a collection of well-worn traditional music and song to reveal authentic moments of staggering originality and great beauty, and has been added to the Telegraphs Best Folk Albums of 2015 list. Hailed by Songlines magazine as another milestone in folks rebirth of cool, Gigspanner present a carefully curated and skilfully narrated program of material that goes way beyond the folk genres usual boundaries. Modern in interpretation yet classical in its virtuosity, it is music that continues to inspire audiences of all leanings, bringing them back for more. Peter is joined by Roger Flack on Guitar and Vincent Salzfaas on Percussion. "Gigspanner has taken traditional tunes as a starting point and rearranged, orchestrated and improvised around them to create fascinating new works, leaving no doubt that Gigspanner’s increasingly impressive sound is like no other" Folk Radio UK
