Friday, 2nd June 2017
My Sweet Patootie
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
My Sweet Patootie is contemporary roots and ragtime at its best.



It brings tight harmonies, monstrous guitar, sizzling fiddle and percussion together in one perfect package.

Founded in 2007 by Canadian Folk Music Award winners Sandra Swannell and Terry Young, the trio has a growing international reputation.

From humorous original swing to funky fiddle-tunes to exquisite ballads, their vintage-style song writing is rooted in folk, Americana and jazz; heavily influenced by the likes of Chet Atkins, Lenny Breau, Les Paul and Mary Ford, and the Andrews Sisters. Throw in a penchant for light-hearted satire and their love of artists like Patsy Cline and Hank Williams, and you get a show that has been described as two parts exemplary musicianship and one part vaudeville comedy.

Tickets from £8 to £16 (includes £1 restoration levy).

Monday, 5th June 2017
Painting the Theatre: Garrick in Action
Venue: The Paul Iles Learning Centre, The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
Art historian and guest curator at the Bowes Museum, Veronique Gerard Powell, will talk about the current Garrick exhibition.

To mark the 300th anniversary of the birth of England's best-known actor from the 18th century, David Garrick (1717-1779), the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle is presenting an exhibition of paintings that represent Garrick in action.

At the centre of the display are two paintings by Johann Zoffany (1733-1810) that were recently acquired by the Museum. These two paintings were commissioned by Garrick and show 'David Garrick and Mrs Cibber as Jaffier and Belvidera in 'Venice Preserv'd'' and 'David Garrick and Mary Bradshaw in David Garrick's 'The Farmer's Return''.

Through these and other paintings, engravings, contemporary mezzotints and theatrical paraphernalia that make up the exhibition, Veronique will consider how artists depicted the 'theatrical action' and how these representations encouraged the emerging phenomenon of 'celebrity'.

Tickets cost £5 and include a glass of wine. They are available from the Box Office and online via the Theatre's website.

The Loves of Mars and Venus (or Mr Weaver's Dramatick Entertainment)
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 4.00pm - 5.00pm
This event is part of The Swaledale Festival.

Celebrating the 300th anniversary of the world’s first ballet, performed at Drury Lane Theatre in 1717, this enchanting production tells the story of John Weaver’s heroic struggle to create his groundbreaking dance drama in a theatre world which saw dance as a frivolous side show.

The magic and excitement of early 18th century theatre is evoked by an actor portraying Weaver and his stage character Vulcan, baroque dancers playing Venus and Mars, and an on-stage ensemble performing contemporary music by Lully, Purcell, William Croft and Jeremiah Clarke. The production includes original 18th century choreographies and splendid baroque costumes.

Tickets for this event are available from The Georgian Theatre Royal box office only, and not from Swaledale Festival.

Tickets from £12 to £16 with under 19s half price (includes £1 restoration levy).
