PLEASE NOTE VARIATIONS IN DAY (Saturday or Sunday) AND TIME (4 August)

Wall in the Mind ~ Saturday 11 May at 7.30pm

Sound Company Choir weaves together theatre and song with true stories of people whose lives have been disrupted by international barriers, fences and walls -- creating an entertaining evening which is guaranteed to move you and leave you seeing things a little differently.

Elizabeth Kenwood and Peter Reasbeck ~ Sunday 9 June at 7.30pm

Sacred and Profane: the two faces of Naples ~ Sunday 4 August at 3.00pm

Music on the exciting cusp of the Baroque and Classical by two leading Neapolitan composers:  Pergolesi's famous Stabat Mater and Scarlatti's popular but scandalous La Dirindina are performed by acclaimed period-performance ensemble Arioso.

The Cliffords: Lords of Skipton Castle ~ Saturday 12 October at 7.30pm

An anarchic history lesson comes from the Leeds Waits and Friends, who make a renaissance foray in words and music through three generations of the Clifford family in love, scandal and war.

Meltemi Ensemble ~ Sunday 3 November at 7.30pm

Joanna Lewis (flute), David Baker (bassoon) and John Truss (piano), are much in demand in venues around Yorkshire, presenting programmes that are always imaginative, attractive, intriguing and beautifully played.  Details to be confirmed.
