Witches, Wee Folk & Watery Beasties

Shaggy Dog Storytellers are proud to present Dougie Mackay at The Stubbing Wharf, Hebden Bridge on Friday 29th June 2018. 7.30pm for an 8.00pm start. £7 admission.

There’s more to Scotland than meets the eye, for amidst the bonnie hills, craggy coasts and lush, green glens, dwell some truly curious beings.

Storyteller Dougie Mackay evokes the gnarly soul of Scotland as clan chiefs, crones, fishermen and fools meet faeries, selkies, kelpies and giants in a weirdly wonderful ceilidh of classic tales and local legends. Bring an iron pin for protection, offerings of oatcakes to carry favour, and watch out for a black dog or yellow-horned goat, as it just may be 'he who should not be named' in cunning disguise.

Dougie is a forward-thinking community artist who is prominent amongst Scotland's emerging storytellers and is passionate about rejuvenating "ceilidh culture”. Hope to see you there!

Friends of the Picture House present
West Side Story

West Side StoryMay's Friends of the Picture House screening will be the 1961 musical West Side Story, in celebration of the centenary of composer Leonard Bernstein's birth.

Winner of 10 Academy Awards (the record for a musical), Bernstein and highly diverse director Robert Wise (The Haunting, The Day The Earth Stood Still, The Sound of Music, editor of Citizen Kane!) adapted the Broadway hit to make one of the most iconic musicals of all.

A retelling of Romeo and Juliet, the film reconstitutes the warring families as street gangs, memorably communicating New York's ethnic tensions through balletic dance. 

The tunes, photography, swooning romance and epic scope are frankly to die for. An outstanding big screen experience.

Saturday May 5th, 4pm (Doors 3:45pm).

There will be specially-baked snacks to suit the theme.

Jesus Christ Superstar is a truly global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years. A timeless musical set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events leading to the Crucifixion but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot, a tragic figure dissatisfied with the direction Jesus is steering his disciples.

Written in 1970 with lyrics by Sir Tim Rice and music by Sir Andrew Lloyd-Webber, this production is crammed full of great songs such as 'Heaven On Their Minds', 'Everything's Alright' and of course 'Superstar'.

Directed by Helen Clarkson and Emma Cook, this adult section musical will be as memorable as the eternal story it depicts.

Seven Centuries Of Recorded Floods In The Calder Valley

Why are they getting worse? What can we learn from history? Has the Environment Agency learnt anything from history?

Nick Wilding

Seven Centuries Of Recorded Floods In The Calder Valley

Using evidence stretching back to the 14th Century, Nick Wilding compares the 2015 Boxing Day floods and other recent inundations to accounts of floods from previous centuries. In the course of doing so, he discovers some interesting analogies. He traces the course of the tributaries that feed the River Calder and finds that the origins of extreme flood events in the past were in many ways no different to the ones that cause them today. However, he finds that today's floods have been exacerbated by a range of late 20th Century and 21st Century factors that were not applicable in days gone by.    

Nick Wilding is an ex BBC producer, an independent filmmaker and historical researcher, who has made a string of documentaries on a wide range of local Calder Valley subjects and has prepared talks, interspersed with extracts from his films, based upon his recorded interviews with local people and his own research.

Picture-house

Friends of the Picture House presents

Topsy-Turvy

Topsy TurveyApril's Friends of the Picture House screening will be Mike Leigh's 1999 comedy drama Topsy-Turvy.

Known for his improvised films shot in modern, urban locations, Leigh took audiences by surprise with this opulently-staged Victorian period piece following the production of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic opera The Mikado in 1885.

Led by Jim Broadbent and Allan Courdner, the cast of Leigh regulars including Timothy Spall, Alison Steadman and Lesley Manville (recently Oscar-nominated for Phantom Thread) romp around the lovingly-recreated Savoy Theatre at the time it had become Britain's first electrified public building. The tensions between the two creators almost brought their partnership to an end, but they went on to write several more of their best-known shows.

As one of Leigh's best-loved films, it became the first of several period films he made alongside Vera Drake, Mr Turner and his forthcoming production about the Peterloo massacre.

Johnny Powell and the Seasonal Beasts

Album Launch and Exhibition

Artsmill, Hebden Bridge. Saturday April 7th, 6:30pm

Johnny Powell

On April 7th, 2018, ‘Johnny Powell and the Seasonal Beasts’ will release a different kind of album. Described by Piccadilly Records as ‘Brilliantly eccentric outsider indie for the soul’, the Hebden Bridge band are ditching soulless plastic CDs and releasing their new 9 song album as an ethical handcrafted and handbound book of illustrated poetry, the lyrics, to go against the grain of throw away products.

BBC Introducing described their 2017 EP ‘Five Past Lives’ as ‘Incredible songwriting’ and ‘Absolutely haunting’.

There will be an album launch at Artsmill, Hebden Bridge on Saturday April 7th (open to the public) featuring a wealth of local talent who have been involved in the ambitious project.

The exhibition on the night will be a collection of specially commissioned illustrations and photographs, presented as high quality giclée prints. The pieces are the artists’ personal interpretations of the feeling or meaning of the songs. There will also be performances by poets who have also offered their own interpretations, and of course, performances of new music by the band themselves.

Album Launch Facebook event

You can read more, watch a video and support the project on the band’s Indiegogo fundraiser page here!

Royal Ballet: Bernstein Centenary Celebration (12A)

7.15pm (Doors 6.15pm)

Advance tickets priced £15/£13/£11

Running time: The performance lasts about 3 hours, including two intervals

Bernstein

The Royal Ballet celebrates the centenary of Leonard Bernstein's birth with an all-Bernstein programme from Wayne McGregor, Liam Scarlett and Christopher Wheeldon.

Leonard Bernstein was one of the first classical composers in America to achieve both popular and critical acclaim. He was eclectic in his sources – drawing on jazz and modernism, the traditions of Jewish music and the Broadway musical – and many of Bernstein's scores are remarkably well suited to dance. He was particularly associated with Jerome Robbins, their credits together including Fancy Free and West Side Story. To celebrate the centenary year of the composer's birth, The Royal Ballet has united all three of its associate choreographers to celebrate the dynamic range and danceability of Bernstein's music.

The programme includes two world premieres by Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor and Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon, marking each artist's first foray into Bernstein. At the heart of the programme is the first revival of Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett's The Age of Anxiety, created in 2014 to Bernstein's soul-searching Second Symphony. Both symphony and ballet are both inspired by W.H. Auden's masterful modernist poem, itself written in response to the atmosphere of disillusionment and uncertainty that followed the end of World War II.

The Alan Petford Annual Memorial Lecture

Township Boundaries and Commons Disputes in the South Pennines

Dr. Nigel Smith

The South Pennines

In upland areas, boundaries across moorland were frequently subject to dispute occasioned by disagreements over grazing and other rights of common. The definition of boundaries thus became an increasingly common issue that reached a litigious peak during the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. This talk will cover a number of disputes around the Calder Valley but will focus on two disputes: one between Midgley and Wadsworth that was still ongoing in the nineteenth century, and one involving protracted litigation by Langfield in the early seventeenth century. This litigation provides evidence of a long-lost boundary that sheds some light on certain early township territories within the Upper Calder Valley. Nigel's research interests focus on the landscape and agricultural history of the Upper Calder valley and the wider South Pennines. He has recently edited "History in the South Pennines: The Legacy of Alan Petford", a volume of essays dedicated to the late Alan Petford.

The Norman Conquest of Yorkshire

Dr. Paul Dalton

The Norman conquest of England is often associated with the year 1066, and with the battle of Hastings, fought on 14 October that year, in which the army of William, duke of Normandy, defeated and killed Harold Godwineson, king of the English. In fact, the Norman conquest took many years to achieve. There was much violent resistance to the rule of William the Conqueror after 1066, especially in northern England. This talk will discuss the nature of this resistance in Yorkshire and the brutal measures William used to overcome it, including his infamous 'harrying of the North'. It will also explore the dramatic, and in some respects catastrophic, impact of the Norman conquest on the aristocratic society, landholding, government, wealth, and landscape of power in Yorkshire between 1066 and 1087.

Dr Paul Dalton is a Principal Lecturer in Medieval History at Canterbury Christ Church University. He has published widely on Anglo-Norman history, including a book entitled Conquest, Anarchy and Lordship: Yorkshire 1066-1154, published by Cambridge University Press.

ArtsMill

This exhibition is a retrospective and covers over a decade of this artist's production.

The artist came late to drawing and painting in the joyous era of 1980s adult education, an incredible time of discovery and re-invention for so many. Carolyn has a studio here at Artsmill and is a proud resident of Hebden Bridge with its incredible history.

'It is about things lost and found. The first part of the exhibition relates to Malta as a home, both real and imagined. The second relates to time lost when someone is incarcerated in a prison but that time is found again through creativity. The third relates to the 'lost and found' of forensics.'

Seven Centuries Of Recorded Floods In The Calder Valley

Why are they getting worse? What can we learn from history? Has the Environment Agency learnt anything from history?

Nick Wilding

Seven Centuries Of Recorded Floods In The Calder Valley

Using evidence stretching back to the 14th Century, Nick Wilding compares the 2015 Boxing Day floods and other recent inundations to accounts of floods from previous centuries. In the course of doing so, he discovers some interesting analogies. He traces the course of the tributaries that feed the River Calder and finds that the origins of extreme flood events in the past were in many ways no different to the ones that cause them today. However, he finds that today's floods have been exacerbated by a range of late 20th Century and 21st Century factors that were not applicable in days gone by.    

Nick Wilding is an ex BBC producer, an independent filmmaker and historical researcher, who has made a string of documentaries on a wide range of local Calder Valley subjects and has prepared talks, interspersed with extracts from his films, based upon his recorded interviews with local people and his own research.

Cat on a Hot Tin RoofTennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played a strictly limited season in London’s West End in 2017. Following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire, Benedict Andrews’ ‘thrilling revival’ (New York Times) starred Sienna Miller alongside, Jack O’Connell and Colm Meaney.

On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out?

The Vagina Monologues

Vagina Monologues

Trades Club

A group of local women have come together to join a global movement to rise, resist and unite. In the month of February the Vagina Monologues is being performed all over the world to raise awareness and money for local groups working to end violence against women and girls. The sprit of the play is one of celebration and humour.

The Vagina Monologues introduces a wildly divergent gathering of female voices, including a six year old girl, a septuagenarian New Yorker, a vagina workshop participant, a woman who witnesses the birth of her Granddaughter, a Bosnian survivor of rape, and a feminist happy to have found a man who ‘liked to look at it’.

‘No wonder male religious leaders so often say that humans were born in sin—because we were born to female creatures. Only by obeying the rules of the patriarchy can we be reborn through men. No wonder priests and ministers in skirts sprinkle imitation birth fluid over our heads, give us new names, and promise rebirth into everlasting life.’

Three estranged sisters meet to organise their mother's funeral and remember her through their own very different memories and relationships. Theresa, owner of an alternative therapy business, is angry that she was left to care for their dying mother. Mary, a doctor, is still struggling with a deep loss from her past. Catherine seeks attention through a succession of short-term partners. As their memories blur and the sisters bicker, will the combination of weed and whisky allow them to repair their lives and relationships?  

Awarded the Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 1996, this wise and insightful play written by the excellent Shelagh Stephenson mixes melancholy and mirth in a story about the healing memory of water.

Damn Your Eyes!

Protection against the evil eye in human society and local architecture Mytholmroyd Farm - the evil eye

John Billingsley

Damn Your Eyes!

John's recent research has been into the material remains of folk magic in our built environment, comprising carvings, deposits and customs aimed at protecting buildings and households. In this talk he suggests that the evil eye should not be seen as an aspect of witchcraft, but as an aspect of human personality aggravated by the growth of wealth disparity, especially in the 17th century. 

John Billingsley's interest in Calder Valley history has focussed on local folklore, particularly legends and aspects of traditional folk magic. He has written or edited seven books and organised or presented various conferences on such topics. He has also edited the antiquarian magazine Northern Earth since 1991.

Scarpia sentences Cavaradossi to death – but promises Tosca that her lover can be saved if she gives herself to Scarpia. Tosca consents but as soon as the order has been given kills Scarpia. Scarpia’s menace continues even in death: betrayed by a double-cross, Cavaradossi dies and Tosca leaps to her death.

The People of the Parish Of Halifax: 1539 to 1670

Parish registers and the reconstruction of the population

David Cant

During the Black Death of 1348, up to a half of the people of England died; it took two centuries before the country reached the same number of inhabitants again. Given that one single event can have such a dramatic impact on the social history of the nation, it is perhaps surprising that local historians have not devoted more time to understanding the size of local populations.  Whether it is in order to appreciate the impact of war, famine, disease, economic instability or political upheaval on a locality, it seems that the changing size of its population is an essential element of the local historian's evidential base.

This talk is the result of a group project run in Hebden Bridge by the Society. It aims to demonstrate how Halifax's legacy of parish registers can be used to discover the size of its population, where those people were living and what events impacted on them.

Free exhibition in stained glass with live demonstrations!

Northlight Art Space
Hangingroyd Lane, HX7 7BZ

Calderdale once produced more fustian clothes than anywhere else on earth. Over the past hundred years the mills have gradually been converted into homes, offices, workshops and, particularly in Hebden Bridge, into artist studios.

Yet the cacophonous churn of the textile mill and ammoniacal tang of the tanneries has not vanished completely. Even today, echoes of industry can be found in artwork produced under the same roofs.

This exhibition continues that theme. Commissioned by the Worshipful Company of Dyers and designed and produced by two local artists, it commemorates the vast Yorkshire textile dyeing industry that dominated our valley 150 years ago.

Shown through a series of large stained glass panels, visitors will learn how North Sea kelp, Yorkshire shale and London urine ( ! ) were combined to form alum, the essential fixative used for dyeing clothes and indeed, stained glass windows.

You will also be able to see stained glass manufacture in person as the glazier constructs the final window of the series in the gallery itself.
