EVENING TALK: MR. WAINWRIGHT TO APPEAR IN KENDAL AGAIN

EVENING TALK: MR. WAINWRIGHT TO APPEAR IN KENDAL AGAIN

Fri 2 Jun | Doors 7pm | £5

The alter-ego of Alfred Wainwright, the famous Lakeland Guidebook writer and creator of the famous Coast to Coast walk (voted the 2nd most favourite walk in the world), is presenting his talk to the festival on the Friday evening.

John Burland, the founder of the Wainwright Society, has written and devised a dramatic presentation of the life and works of AW. This was first presented at the Wildman Theatre at Ilkley Playhouse as part of the Ilkley Literature festival on Thursday 15 October 2009 when over 130 people attended the event. Since then John has given the talk over forty times to various groups throughout the north of England.

In the presentation John takes the audience on a journey through AW's life from his humble upbringing in Blackburn through his life-changing visit to the Lake District in 1930 and then his eventual move to Kendal in 1940 and the fifteen years spent writing the outstanding Pictorial Guides to the Lake District between 1952 and 1967. It also includes a look at the more passionate side of the man with his surreptitious love affair in the mid ‘60’s. The presentation concludes with his final journey “in a little box” to the summit of Haystacks where his ashes were scattered in 1991.

As a result of these talks, many thousands of pounds have been raised for various cancer charities and also refugee & children’s charities abroad.

If you are a lover of The Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales or walking in general, this is an evening not to be missed!

KENDAL YARDS AND HISTORY

KENDAL YARDS AND HISTORY

Aimed at/grading: Easy

Duration/length: 1 ½ - 2 hours

The Yards of Kendal are one of the town’s most distinctive features. They are a characteristic portrayal of parts of Kendal’s unique history.  In days gone by they were a series of thriving little communities lined with cottages and workshops.  With the march of progress and the wholesale destruction during the slum clearances of the 1960s, their number has been drastically reduced to become little more than a tourist attraction.  Having said that, there is still life in the yards and they deserve more than a superficial inspection. This walk will take you down some of the more picturesque ones revealing their history.

SPOOKY MEN’S CHORALE CONCERT

Sat 22 July | Doors 7.30pm | £16 | Concert & Workshop combo price £25


Saturday’s concert: “Men singing songs. Some of them are funny”

Is that it?

Alternatively, The Spooky Men’s Chorale is a vast, rumbling, steam powered and black clad behemoth, seemingly accidentally capable of rendering audiences moist eyed with mute appreciation or haplessly gurgling with merriment. Based on the twin pillars of grand foolishness and the quest for the perfect subwoofer-rattling boofchord, the Spooky Men seek to commentate on the absurdity and grandeur of the modern male armed only with their voices, a sly collection of hats and facial hair, and a twinkle in the eye.

That’s it.

Feeling inspired? Following the concert on the Sunday morning The Spooky Men's Chorale will be holding a 2 hour singing workshop... and we have a special combo ticket offer so you can do both at a great price!


Venue: Kendal Town Hall (seated)

HENNING WEHN : WESTPHALIA IS NOT AN OPTION

HENNING WEHN : WESTPHALIA IS NOT AN OPTION

Fri 20 Oct | Doors 7.30pm | £18

Join German Comedy Ambassador Henning Wehn for an evening of Teutonic jolliness at its best. After his last show tackled those well-known staples of light entertainment that are the British obsession with home ownership and the self-serving nature of most fundraising efforts, this time Henning’s having an unbiased look at immigration. He also wonders, if, generally speaking, people are competent. Luckily in his case this doesn’t matter as either he’s funny or he lives up to a national stereotype. It’s a win-win situation. Come along. Or else.

“Very entertaining and very accessible” The Scotsman

“Forget about the Euro, Henning hits the Mark” Nottingham Post

“His accent is not so much German as indescribable” Daily Mail

 

Click here for more info: www.henningwehn.de

 

Henning’s latest TV appearances include presenting An Immigrant's Guide To Britain (Channel 4), Have I Got News For You (BBC1), Live At The Apollo (BBC2), Would I Lie To You (BBC1), Bake Off - Extra Slice (BBC2), The Road To Rio co-presented with Mark Watson (six part series for Dave and 70+ territories worldwide), various 8 Out Of 10 Cats & 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Room 101 (BBC1), Newsnight (BBC2), This Week (BBC1), Backchat (BBC3), QI (BBC2) and Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave, unsurprisingly).  On radio he recently presented Wall In The Head (BBC World Service) and This Is Me, Totally Sausage (BBC Radio 4) and can be heard regularly on Fighting Talk (BBC Five Live) and The Unbelievable Truth (BBC Radio 4).

Three acclaimed operatic soloists come together for this year’s KADGASS performance of Gilbert & Sullivan’s HMS Pinafore.

The role of common sailor Ralph Rackstraw is played by strong tenor Peter Bowden who studied at The Royal Northern College of Music. His opera credits include Alfredo in La Traviata as well as several leading roles with Musica Lirica Opera and New Rosemere G&S. 

Ralph is in love with, and loved by, Captain Corcoran’s daughter, Josephine, portrayed by Emily Robinson, soprano, whose wide repertoire is well known in the musical community of the South Lakes area.

Their powerful voices combine to produce spine tingling moments of romance and longing.

Also appearing is Jenny Brooks, a KADGASS regular, who starred as ‘Evita’ in the acclaimed KAOS production last year. She plays ‘Little Buttercup’ whose storyline is key to the twist that brings about the eventual resolution of the plot.

Completing the strong cast are Graham Beevers as Sir Joseph Porter KCB, Keith Hildrew as Captain Corcoran, Jim Thompson as Dick Deadeye, Stella Coxon as Cousin Hebe and Iain Lamb as the Boatswain.

    


The event is suitable for all.
Running time is 2hrs 30mins.

Fri 5 Jun | 8pm
Tickets: £10/£7 conc

Part of the Songlines encounters Festival 2015.
Songlines Encounters Festival is part co-curated by Songlines Magazine and Ikon Arts Management. 

Monsieur Doumani, nominated for 'Best Newcomer' in Songlines Music Awards 2014, was formed in 2011 in Nicosia by Antonis Antoniou (tzouras), Angelos Ionas (guitar) and Demetris Yiasemides (wind instruments).

Although each member of Monsieur Doumani comes from a different musical background all three are influenced by Cypriot folklore on various levels.

They focus on rearranging Cypriot traditional songs adding their own particular color to the sound and feeling of the songs. They also compose their own songs in the Cypriot dialect, which are inspired by contemporary Cypriot society, as for example the recent financial crisis that hit the island and the corrupted political system.
