The Dramatic Exploits of Edmund Kean
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
Award-winning RSC actor Ian Hughes presents a one-man show depicting the rise and decline of the great 19th century actor.

Following years of hardship as a strolling player (visiting Richmond in 1811), Kean was catapulted to stardom following his performance as Shylock at Drury Lane in 1814. Quickly becoming the most popular actor of his day, Kean electrified his audiences with his performances in Shakespeare. Yet within a few short years Kean’s increasingly erratic behavior, fuelled by drink, ensured audiences remembered Kean for all the wrong reasons.

By turns humorous and heartbreaking, 'The Dramatic Exploits of Edmund Kean' celebrates the spirit of one of the most unique talents that British theatre has ever produced.

Ian spent over a decade at The Royal Shakespeare Company. He was the winner of the first Ian Charleson /Royal National Theatre Award for Best Actor presented to him by Sir Alec Guinness. His many TV appearances include Dr. Who, Robin Hood, Torchwood, Alienists, Ransom, Gavin & Stacey, Mutual Friends and Stella.

Tickets cost £8 to £16 (includes £1 restoration levy) and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.

Steerdeer Bicycle
Venue: The Station
A collection of faux hunting trophies created from bicycle components and found objects.

Growing up in rural Durham, from a young age, Richard had a keen interest in nature and wildlife in particular. As a born again cyclist, forever tinkering and updating his steed, he came to realize that the ergonomic shapes of certain bicycle components lent themselves to sculpture. The faux hunting trophy or bicycle taxidermy as it has been labelled has become a way of combining these two passions, whilst recycling and repurposing worn parts and found objects destined for landfill.

The ethos being that financially and environmentally art should not cost the Earth .

The Adventures of Captain of the Lost Waves
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
Come set sail with The Captain!

In the time of his extraordinarily colourful exile, The Captain was able to utilise just one thing, his ‘Glass Bottle Journal’.

This exciting evening of musical storytelling is full of wide-eyed refractions, testimonies and chronicles unfolding before you through 'Nu Vaudevillian' song, story and laughter.
The Captain revels in the underground, the magical unseen, the mystical otherworldliness of realms often overlooked and consigned to the shadows.

"Do whatever you can to see The Captain, it is a life altering experience, he was born to be a showman, perhaps even a prophet" The Huffington Post

Simon Evans : Genius
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
An evening with popular comedian Simon Evans who regularly appears on Radio 4, includuing The News Quiz and The Unbelievable Truth.

Ever since he was a small boy, all Simon Evans really wanted was to be recognised by the world as a man of genius. He has, until now, remained thwarted. The world seems increasingly indifferent to true genius of any kind, let alone Evans'.

Endlessly distracted by the trivial, we allow the classical tools of grammar, logic and rhetoric to lie unregarded in the shed of consciousness, rusting to a picturesque hue that would actually look really great on Instagram. But which filter? Hmmm…

Boats and Planes...but mainly Trains!
Venue: The Station
A collection of oil on canvas paintings and photographs of scenes from the Age of Steam on British Railways in the 1950s and 60s.


Ted Parker captures the harsh grittiness of the final years of run down steam locomotives, the atmosphere of smoke filled locomotive sheds and stations with decades of grime encrusted infrastructure.

He has also included some of his sailing and aviation subjects, but the real challenge is capturing the allure of the steam locomotive, often in situations and conditions which would have been impossible to capture on film.

A must see for any transport fan!

Manchester-based Heritage Opera has been touring chamber versions of well-loved operas for ten years.

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”.

In the Beginning was the Sound
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
'In the Beginning was the Sound' is an informal and entertaining rollercoaster ride through the history of music.


The evening starts with Stravinsky, dives back to the Medieval period, motors with Mozart (ignoring Beethoven) and ends up with the Bee Gees.

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!

Tickets cost £16 and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking service.

Shackleton’s legacy and a new route to the pole
Venue: The Green Howards Museum

At this special Museum Talk Wendy Searle will explain how Shackleton’s efforts have inspired her own endeavours to trek to the South Pole.


Polar pioneer, Ernest Shackleton, trained soldiers to cope with the arctic conditions they would face on deployment to Russia in 1919.

It was a fateful and often overlooked campaign in which almost 2000 Green Howard soldiers from the 6th and 13th Battalions were involved.

Wendy Searle will attempt to forge a brand new route to the South Pole in 2020.
Wendy, a former Communications Director of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, shares experiences of her recent adventures in Greenland, and describes the challenges ahead as she leads her own expedition to the very bottom of the world.

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.

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

Tickets cost £15 and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking service.

Talk: Sighing for a Soldier: the lure of the scarlet coattee
Venue: The Green Howards Museum
Time: 7pm - 8pm
In this talk, the Museum’s Director, Lynda Powell looks at the pleasures, opportunities and pitfalls of life in the North York Militia.



“She saw all the glories of the camp; its tents stretched forth in beauteous uniformity of lines, crowded with the young and gay, and dazzling with scarlet; and to complete the view, she saw herself seated beneath a tent, tenderly flirting with at least six officers at once.” Jane Austen’s description of Lydia Bennet in ‘Pride and Prejudice’

The attentions of the local female population were just one of the attractions on offer to men serving with the North York Militia in the 1800s.

This Museum Talk is part of Richmond’s GeorgeFest 18 programme.

Price: £5

Talk: Herbert Read: our forgotten war poet
Venue: The Green Howards Museum
Time: 7pm - 8pm
Carl Watts explores the military and cultural life and work of an extraordinary man, Herbert Read, WWI Green Howards Officer.

Green Howards Officer, Herbert Read is commemorated in Poet’s Corner in Westminster Abbey.

So why is this poet, knight of the realm, art critic and writer so often overlooked in favour of the likes of Owen, Sassoon and Brooke?

Was it because this intriguing Yorkshireman was also an anarchist?

Carl Watts explores the military and cultural life and work of an extraordinary man.

Your family story
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.

Apply to:
APC MS Support – Disclosures 2
MP 535,
Kentigern House,
65 Brown Street,
Glasgow

Tel: 0845 600 9663
Fax: 0141 224 3172
Email: apc-sp-disclosures2@mod.uk

In the case of soldiers from World War Two, if you can get a service record before you come along, we will be able to tell you much more than we would without it.
