Comedy Club 4 Kids
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 2.00pm
A family version of an adult comedy club.


Since 2005, Comedy Club 4 Kids has been getting the best stand-ups and sketch acts from the international circuit to do their thing for an audience of children and their families… but without the rude bits!

Over a decade later, the company has expanded from one London residency to being countrywide, running shows and workshops all over the UK from Peebles to Portsmouth, even producing a book on how to write and perform stand-up.

The show is family friendly, but without any patronising idiocy. In fact, it's just like a normal comedy club, but it's on in the day and the kids are allowed in. This is cracking entertainment for everyone over six years old.

‘A highlight for children... giving them a taste of some of the biggest names in comedy with the fun, rowdy feel of a real comedy club.’ The Guardian

Tickets £9 available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.

Chaplin: Birth of a Tramp
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
“What a sad business, being funny” - Limelight (1952)


For over 100 years, Charlie Chaplin has been the world’s best-loved clown. His brilliant comic creation of The Little Tramp is the first and most recognisable cinematic icon in history. But his remarkable story of stardom and success has a darker side.

Raised in the horrific, grinding poverty of a Victorian slum, Charlie never knew the security of a stable family. Whilst his parents destroyed themselves with disastrous ambition and unshakeable vice, Charlie was thrown at the mercy of the workhouse. Desperate to escape his feral existence on the streets of South London, Charlie became captivated by the shining lights of vaudeville, and gradually began to see a way out.

Critically-acclaimed Arrows & Traps theatre company return with an examination of the relationship between experience and creativity, and invite you to discover how Chaplin spun personal tragedy into universal comedy, in a psychological exploration of one of the world’s most remarkable lives.

Written and directed by Ross McGregor, this production is being produced with the full endorsement of the Chaplin Estate and the Chaplin Family.

Tickets £11 to £16 from Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.

People Show 137
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 4.00pm
A Swaledale Festival event.


Forty years ago, People Show Cabaret toured the world. It was an amazing show which turned everything cabaret on its head, and the four protagonists were dubbed “the Beatles of performance art”.

Now, decades later, the youngest one, Chahine Yavroyan, has sadly died and the other three - Mark Long, Emil Wolk and George Khan - along with their brilliant friend Bill Palmer, have reassembled to make a new show. Well, new…and on the other hand…old.

Years of tumbling, verbal and musical gymnastics are revisited and taken to the next dimension…where the black hole of life is finally challenged.

Felt and Photograph
Venue: The Station
Time: 9am - late daily
An exhibition of original feltworks and photographs inspired by rural life and landscapes from a mother and daughter collaborative.

Alison Foster uses her spare time to create artwork. For many years she has enjoyed drawing painting, textiles and photography. Recently she has transferred her drawing and painting skills into felt making – exploring wet felting using a range of wool fibres and silk, then adding detail with needle felting techniques. Inspiration for her work is drawn from wildlife and Yorkshire landscapes.

Rachel Foster is a professional photographer specialising in canine and equine portraits, game shooting and agricultural imagery; providing private commissions and unlimited edition prints. Rachel is often found behind the lens, photographing our four legged friends and creating memories that last forever. She is a true country lady: a farmer’s wife, passionate about field sports, the Yorkshire landscape and the animals within it, all of which comes to the fore in her work.

Stepping Out
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
The heart-warming comedy with two left feet.


RADS present a warm-hearted comedy with laughs, drama and pathos as a group of women ̶ and one man ̶ attempt to overcome their inhibitions and left feet in their weekly tap dancing class.

But before the dancing begins Mavis must mediate the minor dramas that erupt among this motley but loveable crew. As the play progresses, so do the dance skills, but will they have the ability to be transformed into triumphant tappers?

Stepping Out won the Evening Standard Comedy of the Year Award in 1984.

Presented by Richmond Amateur Dramatic Society by arrangement with Samuel French, Ltd. Directed by Lynne Kerr.

Tickets £7.50 to £14.50 are available from Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.

Confluence: The Joining of Two Rivers
Venue: The Station

Rachel Morrell follows the River Swale from the source to the confluence with Cod Beck. She creates textiles and paintings inspired by the colours and shapes of the landscape it passes through.

Jane Wilson walks along the Cod Beck from its source in the North Yorkshire Moors, through her home town of Thirsk, until it meets and merges with the River Swale. She creates textile based work to map out her journey and raise awareness of the social and environmental context of the river.

Of the North
Venue: The Station
Time: 9am - late daily
A painting extravaganza of all things Northern

Rae Clarke’s paintings are impressionistic to semi-abstract. With a background in interior design she brings a passion for translating the colours, contrasts, shapes and patterns of her surroundings, into the feelings that they evoke.

Strongly motivated by the horizon between the sea or land and the sky, Rae also enjoys clashes in natural plus built phenomena which produce dramatic scenes and create experiences of places that reside in our memories. The seasons, storms, clouds plus the night sky and our responses to them, are a key ongoing part of her practice too.
