Sunday, 4th March 2018
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 .

Venue: The Station
By Harriet Fraser

Farming and landscape in the Yorkshire Dales go hand in hand, and have done for at least a thousand years. But what’s the story today? What farming practices persist unchanged? Are some farmers tending to revert to less intensive farming? What new tools or approaches are affecting farming today? Voices From the Land shares the reflections of Yorkshire Dales Farmers about their day-to-day practices and their relationship to the unique landscape of fells and dales.
