My Fair Lady
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 19:30 - 22:00
Richmond Operatic Society presents this all time favourite!

My Fair Lady, based on George Bernard Shaw’s classic play Pygmalion, tells the familiar story of Eliza Doolittle. Eliza is a Covent Garden flower seller who, inspired by phonetician Henry Higgins’ public boast that he could change her social status by teaching her how to speak correctly, turns up at his door asking for lessons in order to fulfil her dream of working in a flower shop. However, Eliza eventually succeeds so well that she outgrows her lowly ambitions, and manages to become an indispensable part of Higgins’ life.

The original 1956 production of My Fair Lady with Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews helped define the modern musical theatre. The original production enjoyed a seven-year run on Broadway leading to the 1964 film (starring Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn), which won several Oscars, including Best Picture.

Its classic musical numbers include “With A Little Bit of Luck”, "Wouldn't it be Loverly?", “I Could Have Danced All Night”, “On the Street Where You Live” and “Get Me to the Church on Time”.

Decostruttori Postmodernisti (DP if you prefer) are four young Italian professional musicians, featuring the otherworldly sound of the theremin, accompanied by piano, violin and cello, alongside ukulele, melodica, kazoo, bird whistle and slide whistle (and sometimes even in the same piece!).

They blend sharp technical skills with the verve of cabaret, presenting well-known pieces in the most unlikely and entertaining ways imaginable. DP are quite unlike anything else, being almost equal parts serious and silly, and always entertaining!

Shakespeare's Globe on Tour
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: Various
See 1 of 3 of the Bard’s most popular plays performed by the world-famous Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. But which one will it be?

In Shakespeare’s day, when a company went on tour, a small group of actors would juggle a variety of roles in three or four plays from their extensive repertoire. The final choice of play would be left to the most powerful person of the household.

Following this tradition, the Globe Theatre is sending out a company of eight talented actors who will offer three plays to the most powerful person in the household, which in this case is the audience.

You will be asked to decide between three Shakespeare classics - The Merchant of Venice, The Taming of the Shrew and Twelfth Night. The curtain will go up and the most popular choice will be performed.

Join us for an unforgettable experience with Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre on Tour who are making a very welcome return visit to The Georgian Theatre Royal. Live theatre really doesn’t get more exciting than this!

Performances are Thursday 5 July at 7.30pm, Friday 6 July at 2.00pm and 7.30pm, Saturday 7 July at 2.00pm and 7.30pm and Sunday 8 July at 6.00pm.

Amongst other events, we are having a ‘St. Mary’s Got Talent‘ evening on July 14th, where we will be entertained by some of the huge number of talented people in our congregation (and maybe their friends too).

We already have singers, musicians and readers lined up, but are looking for even more talent! If you would like to take part, please let Wendy Pritchard know (01748 850854 or email wendypritchard@btinternet.com). We’re also going to be showing pictures of talented people who are not stage performers – painters, knitters, embroiderers, cake makers, woodworkers etc – so please let Wendy know if you’d be prepared to have your picture taken for this. Please don’t be shy – St Mary’s needs you!

(Tickets (on the door) will be £7 per adult to include wine and cake and under 18s will be £2.
Doors will open at 6.30pm and transport will be available on the night.)

Traditionally, the winner of Britain's Got Talent gets to perform in front of the Royal Family at the Royal Variety Performance. They also get a cash prize of £250,000. This isn’t going to happen here – no judging, no prize - just a great night out. Do please book the date and come to support if not perform!

The Georgian Theatre Royal Youth Theatre - The Belle View and Ash
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A double bill from the talented Georgian Theatre Royal Youth Theatre.

The Belle View: Belle lives the life every teen dreams of; millions of followers, sponsors galore and worldwide fame; but is her life as perfect as it seems? A cautionary tale inspired by Beauty and The Beast. This play explores the meaning of vanity and questions why we put such a high value on our looks.

Gyles Brandreth: Break a Leg!
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
An evening of wit, wisdom, high drama, low comedy, and hilarious name-dropping.



They say all political careers end in tears. In Gyles Brandreth's case it's tears of laughter as the actor, author, One Show reporter, former MP and government whip comes to The Georgian Theatre Royal with his new one-man show 'Break a Leg!'

This is Brandreth unleashed on the stars he's known and the theatre stories that have made him laugh – and, occasionally, cry. Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), Radio 4’s Just a Minute regular Gyles delivers a dazzling evening of comedy.

“Incredibly funny, wildly indiscreet.” Daily Mail

“Very funny.” Sunday Times


“A dead-pan comic to rival Jack Dee.” Daily Telegraph

“Brilliant. A serious talent for making people laugh.” Daily Mirror

Internationally acclaimed classical string quartet opens the 71st season of Richmondshire Concerts.

Haydn's much-loved 'Joke' Quartet leads naturally into one of Beethoven's early Quartets, still rooted in the Classical idiom. The Quartet is then joined by star clarinettist Annelien van Wauwe for Mozart's wonderful Clarinet Quintet.

Tickets are £15 at www.rsconcerts.org or at Castle Hill Bookshop, or on the door, subject to availability. Season Tickets, for all six concerts of the season, are £45.

Richmondshire Concerts present a piano recital by Joanna MacGregor
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
One of the world's most innovative and creative classical pianists.

Joanna MacGregor combines her role as Head of Piano at the Royal Academy of Music with a busy career as concert soloist, teacher and festival curator. She is famous as a performer of Bach and Scarlatti, but her repertoire is diverse, as she shows tonight on a powerful Steinway D concert grand.

From their strong opening chords, through the lyrical middle sections to the stormy finish, Beethoven's 32 Variations explore not only the range and colour of the piano but also every imaginable technique. Then Chopin's Mazurkas, rich and flamboyant, lead into the young Alberto Ginastera's vividly imagined Argentinian folkloric dances, concluding a virtuosic first half. Sofia Gubaidulina's Chaconne follows, another youthful work based on an older form. Black Earth, written by Fazıl Say in 1997, is a fusion of Eastern and Western styles and brings a note of loneliness and loss . Finally, Beethoven's great middle-period Appassionata sonata closes an evening of extraordinary emotions.

Tickets are £20 at www.rsconcerts.org or at Castle Hill Bookshop or on the door, subject to availability

Venue: The Green Howards Museum
Time: 10.30am - 4.30pm
Did your relative serve with the Armed Forces? Do you know where he saw service? Was he a P.O.W? Find out at our family history session.

Come along to the museum with your family stories of military service. We’d love to see any military artefacts, memorabilia, letters or personal items you have.

Our staff will be joined by experts from The Royal Armouries, The York Army Museum and The Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry Museum. They will help uncover the story of your relative’s participation in both world wars, and could even solve the mystery of that military looking thing you’ve had in the loft all these years!

This is a FREE event, included in your museum admission.

Before your visit…

We’ll be able to help more if bring as much official information as possible.

Research into soldiers who served in World War One is relatively straightforward, but for those soldiers who served in World War Two, it can be problematic; individual service records are still held and controlled by the Ministry of Defence but they are available to next-of-kin.
