Naval Warfare

“The smallest manned navy in the world!”

Peasholm Park is a haven of tranquillity in our North Bay – unless the battle ships are taking pot shots at one another!

At times during the summer season, war breaks out on the Lake when 20ft replica boats recreate the tensions of a battle at sea.

For more than 80 years the “Battle of Peasholm” has been played out for 30 minutes three times every week during the summer season, delighting audiences who still find it hard to believe that these boats are mostly manpowered. Until 1929, all the boats were manpowered, but then electricity was introduced and now only the larger boats need to be steered by Council employees.

In the early days, the models were First World War battleships, called Dreadnaughts, mystery ships called Q-ships, a passenger liner called Orantes and a U-boat.

After the Second World War, the fleet was replaced with new vessels – this time the battle that was recreated was the Battle of the River Plate.

The British boats were HMS Ajax, Achilles and Exeter. The German battleship was the Graf Von Spee; the Royal Mail liner Asturias and a submarine completed the new fleet.

Around 1960, aircraft were introduced, altering the play of the ships but adding to the excitement for audiences who could not seem to get enough of the Battles!

Also in the 1960s more ships were added to the fleet – HMS Jervis Bay, British Pride and even the Ark Royal.

Although some of the smaller boats are steered by electricity and electricity is certainly used to power the aircraft, most of the boats in the Park, even today, are powered by Scarborough Borough Council employees!

A spokesperson for the Scarborough Tourist Information Bureau joked “It is of course the smallest manned navy in the world!”

Today the Battles still take place but now there is far less emphasis on recreating either World War; just on unnamed “friends” and an equally unnamed “enemy”. Gunfire and smoke continue to fill the air, however, and the aircraft drop bombs from above.

People flock to watch the Battles and they have been reported on and mentioned in many newspapers around the world.

Why don’t you take the time out of a sunny summer afternoon, to watch this amazing show?

The shows usually begin around the last weekend of May and continue until September 1st. In June, the shows are on Saturdays only, in July they are on Thursdays and Saturdays and during August, they are on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

THE WIZARD OF OZ - Presented by YMCA Productions

Tue 23rd July 2019 - Thu 29th August 2019

L. Frank Baum’s classic novel comes to life in The Wizard of Oz. This faithful adaptation by the Royal Shakespeare Company features all the most beloved songs and moments from the 1939 classic film, brought to life onstage. Young Dorothy Gale is swept away by a tornado from her Kansas farm to the magical land of Oz. There, she encounters a host of whimsical characters: good witches, bad witches, animals that talk, scarecrows that walk, and things magical to behold. To find her way home, she must journey along the Yellow Brick Road to see the mysterious and all-powerful Wizard in Emerald City. Along the way, she makes new friends, but must also brave many dangers, including the Wicked Witch of the West, who will stop at nothing to get her hands on Dorothy’s magical ruby slippers. To make it home safely, Dorothy must learn an important lesson: there’s no place like home.

Season’s Greetings

Written and directed by Alan Ayckbourn

 

Cast: Matt Addis, Eileen Battye, Rachel Caffrey, Bill Champion, Andy Cryer, Michael Lyle, Frances Marshall, Mercy Ojelade, Leigh Symonds

 

Designer                                            Kevin Jenkins

Lighting Designer                            Jason Taylor

Casting Director                               Sarah Hughes CDG

 

25 July to 28 September (in rep)

 

A revival of Alan Ayckbourn’s classic comedy Season’s Greetings has opened at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre.

 

Directed by the author, it features a cast of nine: Matt Addis, Eileen Battye, Rachel Caffrey, Bill Champion, Andy Cryer, Michael Lyle, Frances Marshall, Mercy Ojelade and Leigh Symonds. Design is by Kevin Jenkins and lighting design by Jason Taylor.

 

Season’s Greetings premiered in Scarborough at the SJT’s former home at Westwood in 1980; this is the first time it has been performed in Scarborough since.

 

Neville and Belinda are hosting their extended family over a long weekend. The presence of two tyrannical uncles – Bernard, whose ham-fisted annual puppet shows are a source of dread to young and old alike, and TV addict Harvey – promises to stir up trouble from the start. And that’s before you add to the mix broken toys, creaking marriages and guest novelist Clive, whose relationship with Belinda’s sister Rachel is going nowhere, causing him to look for love elsewhere.

 

Alan Ayckbourn explains that the play was originally inspired by his two sons mounting a puppet show and his getting involved: “I remember Steven saying: ‘This is only meant to be fun!’ and running crying out of the room as I shouted: ‘It may be fun to you, but this is a show and we’ve got to do it professionally’. By the time it went on, all the joy had gone out of it. Afterwards I thought: ‘What the hell am I doing?’

 

“I think everyone has had at least one disastrous Christmas and so the audience relates to it. I used to say: ‘You may think you’ve had a bad Christmas but wait until you see this one…’.”

 

Season’s Greetings can be seen in the Round at the SJT, in rep, until Saturday 28 September 2019. Tickets, priced from £10, are available from the box office on 01723 370541 and online at www.sjt.uk.com.

Jazz club celebrates 35th anniversary
Aug

Jazz club celebrates 35th anniversary

Not many jazz clubs can claim to have promoted jazz 50 nights a year for 35 years.

Scarborough’s can.

The founders - drummer Dennis Hitch, guitarist Roy Elsey, bassist Bob Walker and keys player Mike Gordon - were just looking for somewhere to play, which is how Scarborough Jazz started.

Dennis and Roy are now playing at the great jazz club in the sky but Mike and Bob are still part of the resident trio, with Tom Townsend on drums.

The club was launched in 1984 at Elvenhome, which later became the Stage Door and is now a storeroom in Clinton’s card shop in the town centre. Its other homes were the Mermaid (part of the Futurist complex), the Golden Ball, the Ramshill, Beiderbecke’s, Scholars and, for two spells, the Cask, where it has been settled since 2007.

Audiences of between 40 and 60 attend Wednesday sessions at the Cask. “Musicians are always commenting on the great atmosphere and how they love playing here”, says Mike, who is chair of Scarborough Jazz. “They are impressed by how attentive our audiences are, without being too formal”.

He adds: “We have had some great highlights including Peter King, Alan Barnes, Martin Taylor, Dave O’Higgins, Clark Tracey, Don Weller, Dave Newton, Jim Mullen, Snake Davis, Stacey Kent and, before they became famous, Clare Teal and Anita Wardell”.

The club’s policy is to actively promote some of the country’s most exciting young bands including Partikel with Duncan Eagles, Yoruba (part of Jazz Yorkshire's Jazz Futures project), the Matt Anderson Quartet, Jazz Aesthetic (a Hull University 12-piece led by Peter Elsdon) and Artephis.

Jazz musicians of all standards have an opportunity to perform at players’ sessions which take place two or three times a year; the next one is on 21 August. Professional film maker Dennis Lowe made an outstanding 13-minute film about the club which has shots of the annual jazz festival. It can be seen on the website www.scarboroughjazz.co.uk. Dennis is famous for his special visual effects in The Talented Mr Ripley and The English Patient.

The club is well aware that its future depends on support from local fans, both at club nights and behind the scenes. Newcomers receive a friendly welcome at club nights.

A free party celebrating the club’s 35th anniversary was held at the Spa in July. Sharing the bill were Dennis Rollins, the New York Brass Band, the Mike Gordon Trio with Kate Peters and Ian Chalk, Social Oven, Hip Hop Jazz Jam (standing in for AC3), Vibeology and DJ Mark Thompson’s Jazz Jukebox. The Sun Court in the afternoon and the Promenade Lounge in the evening were packed, Mike says. “Adrian Riley did a great job organising the events”.

Just as the club was spawned out of the founders’ love of jazz, the town’s annual jazz festival, at the Spa in September, emerged from Mike’s devotion to the genre and is now firmly established on the national jazz-map. The town owes a huge debt of gratitude to Mike for his unswerving work in promoting jazz. In 2017 the festival received a Parliamentary award for the best jazz festival. The competition included the London, Manchester and Cheltenham jazz festivals.

Mike is quick to point out that the club’s continued success depends on the support of  the committee and key individuals. They include David Kennard for writing programme copy and reviews of highlight events; Marian Gordon for her unstinting work behind the scenes, mailing out information and preparing poster content; treasurer Tom Mellor; secretary, soundman and bassist Bob Walker, who puts in an enormous amount of work prior to, and during, each performance; and Sarah Dyson for the club’s Facebook and Twitter presence.

Bill and the Belles will play vintage, old-time country and vaudeville at Woodend in Scarborough on 27 August.

The group puts its own spin on a golden era of American music, specifically the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, says promoter Chris Lee.

“Lead singer and guitarist Kris Truelsen’s distinctive tenor anchors the project while the trio’s harmonies gleam against a backdrop of banjo, fiddle, accordion, ukulele and clarinet”, Chris says.

The band takes its name from 1920s performers Bill and Belle Reed, who recorded the songs Old Lady and the Devil and You Shall be Free in Johnson City, Tennessse, where the band is based.

Tickets cost £12 and can be booked by ringing 384500.

Open Water
Sep

to Oct 26

Open Water

An exhibition of paintings celebrating the joys of open water swimming comes to Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre next month.

 

Each painting by Andrea Hall – herself an open water swimmer – features a tiny rubber duck.

Andrea says: “If you’re wondering why every piece of my artwork features a rubber duck hiding somewhere in it, let me introduce you: Ducky is a thermometer and my long-time open water swim buddy. He tells me the temperature of the water, which is a bit of an obsession to open water swimmers – a bit like the weather to the British.

 

“I come from a swimming background, but hadn’t swam for decades, when I was inspired by watching the marathon 10k swim during London 2012. At that point I was very overweight and inactive and I famously said to my partner: ‘I could’ve done that when I was younger’.

“It was a lightbulb moment that kicked off my passion for the open water. Fast forward to 2018, and after 30 years working as a graphic designer I felt inspired by one of the places I swim at to start painting the view from the water and to try and portray the feeling of both freedom and vulnerability it gives me.

“The sport is really growing at the moment and there’s a huge emphasis on it being great for mental health too.”

Tadcaster-based Andrea is a professional artist and designer. Fascinated by drawing since childhood, she turned five years of art and design study into a successful career as a commercial designer for national and international business.

Inspired to return to swimming by London 2012, Andrea now combines her passion for painting with her relish for the open water, resulting in artwork that comes straight from the heart.

Open Water can be seen in the gallery at the SJT from Monday 2 September to Saturday 26 October. The gallery is open from 10am to 6pm, Mondays to Saturdays, except during show times (mostly evenings, but some afternoons: please check the website before travelling). Entry is free.

The Stephen Joseph Theatre Company in

Birthdays Past, Birthdays Present

Written and directed by Alan Ayckbourn

 

Cast: Jamie Baughan, Jemma Churchill, Russell Dixon, Naomi Petersen

 

Designer                                            Kevin Jenkins

Lighting Designer                            Jason Taylor

Associate Sound Designer            Paul Stear

Casting Director                               Sarah Hughes CDG

 

4 September to 5 October (in rep with Alan Ayckbourn’s Season’s Greetings)

 

A brand new play from celebrated author Alan Ayckbourn is currently in rehearsal, and opens at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre in September.

 

Birthdays Past, Birthdays Present is the author’s 83rd play, and premieres in the year of his 80th birthday.

 

Directed by the author, it will be performed by a cast of four: Jamie Baughan, Jemma Churchill, Russell Dixon and Naomi Petersen. Design is by Kevin Jenkins and lighting design by Jason Taylor. The Associate Sound Designer is Paul Stear.

 

It’s Micky’s 80th birthday, and he and his wife Meg are awaiting the arrival of their son, Adrian, and his new (and latest!) fiancée, Grace.

 

Adrian has, according to his parents, a certain reputation regarding women, and they feel meek, mild-mannered Grace should surely be warned of this. But are things really as they appear? As birthday follows birthday, the truth is finally revealed about Adrian, the suburban closet Lothario.

 

Alan Ayckbourn says: “It’s no coincidence that this is a special year for me, being my 80th. I like to pin things on anniversaries, and I thought ‘why not birthdays?’

 

“But it’s a bit conventional to have one person maybe having his 20th birthday and his 50th and then 80th birthdays, so I thought it would be fun to do it backwards.

 

“Usually in plays, we see the cause first and the effects follow on, but in this case, we see the effect first and our first question is, just how did we get there?

 

“It’s really a story about a man who’s trying to deal with and understand women; it's a sort of companion piece to my 2017 play, A Brief History Of Women.”

 

Birthdays Past, Birthdays Present can be seen in the Round at the SJT, in rep, from Wednesday 4 September to Saturday 5 October 2019. Tickets, priced from £10, are available from the box office on 01723 370541 and online at www.sjt.uk.com

Saturday 7 September 2019, 12-2pm

 

An exhibition of photographs at Woodend, The Crescent, Scarborough, North Yorkshire, YO11 2PW. 

 

"Until the age of 8 years, I was brought up on council estates on the outskirts of Scarborough, a seaside town in North Yorkshire. On 19th March 1963 we moved into the town itself, which opened up a whole new range of possibilities for escape and adventure. I explored the town and particular places as if I owned them. This was a fantastic time for me: an intrepid explorer in my own town, hidden amongst the holiday-makers and day-trippers.

 

"I have decided to embark on a long-term project looking at those special places of my boyhood wanderings, and these images are where I have got to so far. They are not intended to be a record of what was and I have tried to avoid the merely nostalgic. Rather they are images made of what I see there today and what captures my eye now, through the filter of decades." - Mick Fattorini

Build a Rocket

Award-winning play Build a Rocket returns to Scarborough before UK tour

 

Friday 13 and Saturday 14 September 2019

 

Following an award-winning run at Australia’s Adelaide Fringe Festival this spring, Christopher York’s Build a Rocket returns to the Stephen Joseph Theatre for a limited run next month before embarking on an extensive UK tour.

 

The show, which premiered at the SJT last summer before going to the Edinburgh Fringe, can be seen at the theatre for just three performances on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 September.

 

Winner of the Holden Street Theatres' Edinburgh Fringe Award 2018, Adelaide Fringe Best Theatre Weekly Award 2019 and named The Sunday Mail’s Best Female Solo Show (Adelaide), Build a Rocket sees critically-acclaimed Serena Manteghi reprise her role as Yasmin.  Hard-hitting yet inspiring, this funny and heart-warming production, written by Scarborough-born Christopher York, challenges our perceptions about young motherhood.

 

Build a Rocket is directed by Paul Robinson, designed by Helen Coyston, with lighting design by Ben Cowens. The composer and sound designer is Simon Slater.

 

Yasmin is a bright 16-year-old from Scarborough. Her world is turned upside down when she becomes pregnant. Abandoned by both the father of her child and her alcoholic mother, Yasmin faces one of life's great challenges completely alone – but can the thing which threatens to ruin her life actually be the thing which saves her?

 

Writer Christopher York says: “Teenage pregnancy is so demonised and we’re quick to blame teenagers. There was a girl I was at school with who had a child at 15. I was astounded at her resilience; she went on to pass her GCSEs, go to college and university, get married and raise a wonderful human being. She is a phenomenal person. We are still conservative about these topics. If we were more open and Scandinavian about how we tackled sex and sexual health, especially with young people, we may not have the statistics we do.”

 

Director Paul Robinson says: “I’m delighted that Build a Rocket is going on a national tour in co-production with Tara Finney Productions. It’s a key strategic priority for the SJT to be touring bold, resonant and relevant contemporary work as well as to further champion local emerging artist Christopher York on a national platform. The tour will allow us to reach a broader spectrum of audiences geographically as well as engage directly with local schools which is a wonderful prospect.”

 

Build a Rocket is touring to theatres and arts centres across the UK, including Halifax’s Square Chapel Arts Centre (18 September), Interplay Theatre, Leeds (19 September), Pocklington Arts Centre (26 September), Selby Town Hall (28 September), Theatre Deli, Sheffield (18 and 19 October) and Hunmanby Arts Centre (26 October). For further venues and dates nationwide: www.sjt.uk.com/news/39/build_a_rocket_blasts_off

 

Thanks to generous support from the Noël Coward Foundation, it will also be performing to students from schools and college in North Yorkshire, including Malton School, Norton College, Lady Lumley’s School, Scarborough Sixth Form College, Scarborough TEC, Graham School and the Scarborough Pupil Referral Unit.

 

Build a Rocket can be seen in the McCarthy at the SJT at 7.45pm on Friday 13 September, and at 2.45pm and 7.345pm on Saturday 14 September. Tickets are priced from £10, and can be booked at the box office on 01723 370541 or via the website: www.sjt.uk.com

Wild Card have made a name for themselves on the European jazz scene in the last few years and have a residency upstairs at Ronnie Scotts.

‘The disparate genres tumble over one another in a cheerful riot... Great tunes, great musicianship and great fun’  Londonjazznews.com

‘A festival highlight - groovacious music purveyed through jazz edginess to an appreciative audience. Wild Card indeed!’ Paul Pace (Booker Ronnie Scotts)

A festival of Alan Ayckbourn films

A festival of Alan Ayckbourn films

A festival of Alan Ayckbourn films at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre

Friday 20 to Sunday 22 September 2019

A mini season of movies based on the plays of Alan Ayckbourn will be screened at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre in September as part of the celebrations for the author’s 80th birthday earlier this year.

The Ayckbourn film festival will include French director Alain Resnais’ Smoking, No Smoking and Private Fears in Public Places, and the BBC’s Absent Friends and Absurd Person Singular. 

Smoking (20 September at 2.45pm) and No Smoking (21 September at 2.45pm) are both based on Ayckbourn’s epic play Intimate Exchanges, which deals with the consequences of choice and how lives can take very different paths from the smallest to the biggest decision. 

The play has eight significantly different plots dependent on the choices made and the films adapts six of these plots – three for each film – as we see the five female characters (all played by Sabine Azéma) and the four male characters (all played by Pierre Arditi) skillfully recapping what might have happened if they had made or failed to make certain choices and how their lives could have been wildly different. 
(Screened in French with English subtitles.)

 

Private Fears in Public Places (20 September at 7.45pm and 22 September at 2.45pm) is the second Ayckbourn film adaptation from Alain Resnais, 13 years on from Smoking/No Smoking.  Also starring Sabine Azéma and Pierre Arditi, the story explores themes of alienation and loneliness in the 21st century as it follows the lives and relationships of six loosely linked people in London. (Screened in French with English subtitles.)

Absent Friends (21 September at 7.45pm) was one of many plays adapted for the BBC show Theatre Night in 1985. It’s never been released commercially, so this is an exceptionally rare screening. A tea party has been arranged for the recently-bereaved Colin by ‘friends’ and acquaintances. However, his acceptance of his situation and his fufilling time with his fiancée only serves to highlight and widen the rifts in other relationships. Michael Simpson directs Julia McKenzie, Tom Courtenay, Hywel Bennett, Maureen Lipman, Kate Lock and Dinsdale Landen.

Absurd Person Singular (22 September at 7.45pm), another BBC adaptation, was broadcast on BBC1 on New Year’s Day 1985, but despite its success has rarely been seen in the UK cinema, making this another incredibly rare screening. Set in three kitchens over three Christmases, the story charts the relentless rise of the socially aspiring Hopcrofts at the expense of two other couples. Michael Simpson directs Michael Gambon, Maureen Lipman, Geoffrey Palmer, Prunella Scales, Cheryl Campbell and Nicky Henson.

Tickets for the individual films are £7 (concessions available) or see all five for £25. Tickets are available from the box office on 01723 370541 and online at www.sjt.uk.com.

FIRE AND RAIN

YMCA Theatre, Scarborough, YO11 1DY

Wed 25th September 2019

Fire & Rain Supported by Gracie Falls
(perform the Music of James Taylor & Carole King)

Fire and Rain is not a tribute or sound-a-like act. It’s simply a collection of five of the best musicians from the North of England coming together to play music they love.
Expect the classic James Taylor & Carole King songs played with skill, passion, emotion, humour and humility.  Incredibly in-demand musicians in their own right, Tom Townsend (The Tom Townsend Blues Band) Rich Adams & Mark Gordon (Stony), Paul Tilley and Bob Walker abandon their usual bands and projects for this one-off tour to bring the joy of Taylor & King’s music to you in what they call a ‘magical musical holiday’. 
The band is delighted that Gracie Falls and Alex Staples will be supporting them on a number of the concerts. Gracie is an award winning singer and songwriter in her own right, and she will be accompanied by the wonderful guitarist Alex Staples.
Building on the success of the last few years, ‘Fire and Rain’ are delighted to be able to bring this wonderful concert to the YMCA Theatre, Scarborough and hope that you will join them to celebrate the music of two timeless singer songwriters and performers in what will be a memorable evening of first class entertainment.

GRACIE FALLS
 
Gracie Falls has the voice of an angel. Her haunting melodies and engaging lyrics draws the listener to the stories she has to tell. From slow ballads to lively renditions of her own songs and a few country ballad covers she takes you on her musical journey. It is hardly surprising that SHE IS A NATIONAL AWARD WINNING SONGWRITER and worthy of it. Gracie beat three female song writing talents in the 2016 London final of the UK unsigned songwriter of the year 2016. 
Gracie is frequently backed by her partner Alex Staples who is an amazing guitar accompanist.
The following two reviews probably best sum up Gracie –but come to see her and judge for yourself!

REVIEWS
"Gracie's 3 words to describe her music are "emotive, unique, and relatable". And to describe herself: "bubbly, passionate and headstrong". After speaking to her I can add many more positive words to describe her; confident, friendly, professional, driven and down to earth being just a few. And of course she is incredibly talented. Her music is poignant and her lyrics engaging. Her songs will linger in your mind long after they've finished." Lucy, Britz n Beatz

"I was massively impressed with Gracie. She has one of those really lovely angelic voices and the whole audience was rapt with her, you could've heard a pin drop at certain times...her voice just rang out across the wood. I just stood there completely transfixed by that..."
Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2 - Latitude Festival 2016

Legendary Explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes to visit Scarborough Spa

The world's greatest living explorer is heading to Scarborough next year

Sir Ranulph Fiennes will visit Scarborough Spa’s Grand Hall on Wednesday 15th January 2020 as part of his Living Dangerously world tour.

Named by the Guinness Book of Records as ‘the world’s greatest living explorer’, Sir Ranulph Fiennes has spent his life in pursuit of extreme adventure; inspiring generations and risking life and limb in some of the most ambitious private expeditions ever undertaken.

Amongst his many record-breaking achievements, he was the first to reach both Poles, the first to cross the Antarctic and Arctic Ocean, and the first to circumnavigate the world along its polar axis – his current goal is to become the first person in the world to cross both polar ice caps and climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents.

Both light-hearted and strikingly poignant, Living Dangerously offers a personal journey through Sir Ranulph’s life, spanning his early childhood and school misdemeanours, his army life, the Transglobe Expedition and his current Global Reach Challenge; making him a pioneer of exploration with an unparalleled story to tell.

Tickets for Sir Ranulph Fiennes: Living Dangerously go on sale on Friday 12 July at 10am from Scarborough Spa’s Box Office (01723) 821888 and via www.scarboroughspa.co.uk

THE CLOUGHTON RAT PACK

YMCA Theatre, Scarborough, YO11 1DY

Fri 16th August 2019

The Cloughton Rat Pack are a group of five local lads - Paul Mintoft (Sog), Steve Chambers, Tim Osbourne, Clive Welburn and Jeremy (Jez) Pratt - who all have a love of the sounds and humour of the famous Rat Pack - Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jnr, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop.

The show features many of the songs made famous by these huge American icons. All backed by the fantastic King Willy's Big Band, under the direction of Will Oseland. There will also be madcap humour and antics in abundance!

The Cloughton Rat Pack have donated all the proceeds from their previous shows to local charities. They have raised thousands over the last couple of years. Tonight's lucky charities are Saint Catherine's and Scarborough YMCA.

RAT PACK taken from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The RAT PACK was a super-group of actors originally centred on their leader, Frank Sinatra. Later it was revealed by Sinatra that Joey Bishop headed the bunch. By the 1960's, it was the name used by the press and the general public to refer to a later variation of the group that called itself "the Summit" or "the Clan", featuring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop; they appeared together on stage and in films in the early 1960s, including the movies Ocean's 11, Sergents 3, and Robin and the 7 Hoods (in the last film, Bing Crosby replaced Lawford). Sinatra, Martin, and Davis were regarded as the group's lead members.

Countryfile Live… the summer’s best day out! 

BBC Countryfile Live is coming to Yorkshire for the first time this week, as the summer’s best day out gets set to take up residence in the spectacular grounds of Castle Howard from 15th – 18th August. 

Countryfile Live celebrates every part of the British countryside for a full experience of everything the programme cherishes. The event is a celebration of the British countryside and the programme and embodies this with four days of live arena shows, debates, food, drink, farm -animal demonstrations and shopping from over 500 independent retailers and lifestyle brands, in the beautiful settings of Castle Howard.

The Countryfile team will be giving talks and hosting demonstrations, giving the public the chance to speak to and learn more about their favourite presenter, including Yorkshire’s own John Craven and Anita Rani! 

To get a glimpse of your favourite Countryfile presenters, the Main Stage features a daily programme of talks and chats as Matt, John, Anita, Steve, Adam, Ellie, Charlotte and Tom all take turns to host throughout the show!

The fun doesn’t stop there, as Castle Howard’s South Lake will be transformed into ‘The Waterside’ where families can take part in fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding. Elsewhere the Jessops Photography Experience will give visitors the chance to hone their snapping skills and photography fans can also visit the Quilter Cheviot Capturing the Moment contest for some inspiration. 

Visitors can get involved in all the outdoors action at the Wildlife Zone, the Dog Lovers’ Arena and the Equine Arena or enjoy a picnic in the National Trust Acre or a pint of Wainwright at The Craven Arms.

The event also hosts some inspirational debates at the Big Top, which will play host to a variety of guests from Sir Chris Bonington to The Hon. Nick Howard, Keeley Donovan and a myriad of Countryfile contributors. 

There’ll be plenty of food and drink over at the Le Creuset Kitchen Theatre. Hosted by local legend Brian Turner, this is a must see with a host of celebrity chefs dishing up some culinary inspiration.

Stepping Out
Jul
25
to Aug 3

Stepping Out

Richard Harris’s much-loved comedy Stepping Out has opened at Scarborough’sStephen Joseph Theatre.

The feel-good show, with live music and tap dancing, will have what’s believed to be its first-ever in-the-round production, brought to the stage by the same team that created last summer’s sell-out The 39 Steps.

With a cast of ten, Stepping Out is about a group of strangers who come together every week for a tap class in the local church hall, gradually forming friendships and revealing secrets.

The cast is: Natasha Calland, Alix Dunmore, Claire Eden, Joanne Heywood, David McKechnie, Fenella Norman, Gemma Page, Sarah Pearman, Angela Phinnimore and Suzanne Procter.

Stepping Out won the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Comedy and has been seen on stage worldwide and on screen in a BAFTA-nominated movie starring Liza Minnelli, Julie Walters and Shelley Winters.

 Paul Robinson says: “This summer at the SJT, things are kicking off – literally – with the joy that is Stepping Out. With a cast of ten high-kicking, tap-dancing, hugely talented actors, you can expect laughter, drama and plenty of razzle dazzle.”

 Richard Harris says: "To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time the play has been performed in the round and I'm really looking forward to seeing how it works. Not that I have any doubts because if anyone knows how to do ‘in the round’, it's my new friends at the SJT."

Director Paul Robinson trained at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. He then received an Arts Council Directing Bursary at The Manchester Royal Exchange. He was selected to attend the National Theatre's Advanced Directors' Course and was then Staff Director at the National Theatre for three years.  

Paul was Joint Artistic Director of Theatre503 from 2007 to 2012, when the theatre was turned into a multi-award-winning new writing powerhouse. He took on sole leadership of Theatre503 from 2012, introducing the Trafalgar Transfer season and the Theatre503 International Playwriting Award. He has been twice nominated for Best Artistic Director at the Off West End Awards. Paul's productions of And Then Come the Nightjars, A Handful of Stars and Land of Our Fathers all received huge critical acclaim and a total of 12 Off West End Award nominations, including Best Director. The latter was made into a feature-length film.

Paul joined the SJT as Artistic Director in the summer of 2016, since when he has directed The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, Goth Weekend, The 39 Steps and three Christmas shows – PinocchioA (Scarborough) Christmas Carol and Alice in Wonderland.

Paul’s creative team comprises designer Helen Coyston, who also designed Alice in Wonderland, A (Scarborough) Christmas Carol and Goth Weekend at the SJT; lighting designer Jason Taylor, who has worked on many productions at the SJTand Simon Slater, who was Olivier-nominated for Constellations and was Musical Director on the National Theatre’s highly acclaimed recent production of Amadeus.

Stepping Out can be seen in the Round at the SJT on various dates until Saturday 3 August. Tickets, priced from £10, are available from the box office on 01723 370541 and online at www.sjt.uk.com.

British music legends Madness are bringing their 40th anniversary celebrations to Scarborough Open Air Theatre this summer.

Fresher of face and fleeter of foot than ever, it’s hard to believe 2019 will mark four decades since a rag tag of self-proclaimed ‘hoolies and urchins’ first emerged, gloriously unreconstructed, from the back streets of Camden Town fusing reggae, punk and pop on their classic debut album ‘One Step Beyond’.

Now in the 40th year of their near-Imperial reign over popular music, 2019 sees a raft of activity including a not-to-be-missed show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Friday 19th July 2019.

Lachlan Bryan and The Wildes pioneered the alt-country and Americana music movement in Australia, beginning with 2010 debut album Ballad of a Young Married Man.

Spartacus tells the story of its eponymous hero who, after being captured as a prisoner of war by consul Crassus, is trained to become a gladiator in Ancient Rome. Horrified by the violence he is forced to endure, Spartacus is spurred to rebellion and incites his fellow captives to rise up. The rebels storm Crassus’ villa where Spartacus’ wife, Flavia, is enslaved. n a moment of mercy, Spartacus spares Crassus’ life, but this only triggers an epic battle between the Roman army and the rebel forces. Aram Khachaturian’s epic score from 1954 is music on a grand scale, canvassing everything from brass fanfares to Armenian-inspired folk music, driving, energetic rhythms and sweeping cinematic climaxes
