Survivors of Torture Fundraiser

7.45pm

Hebden Bridge Little Theatre

This 65 minute performance is a result of extensive research into the dark world of state-sanctioned torture and its stark impact on victims, perpetrators, families and those who collude in the ‘process’.

Immersive in style, Feeding the Darkness frames verbatim monologues, and dramatic monologues based on true stories, duologues, poetry and testimonies which challenge our ignorance and avoidance of this sensitive and disturbing subject.

It features such wide-ranging material as the experiences of the mother of Private Lynddie England (court-marshalled for her role in the abuse of Abu Ghraib detainees), that of a Kurdish asylum seeker at an appeal tribunal, and the role of trained medical professionals in state sanctioned torture, amongst many others.

Feeding the Darkness is on at the Little Theatre, for one night only, Friday 24 January 2020, starting at 7.45pm (doors open 7pm).

Tickets are £10, and are available from the Bookcase, Market Street, Hebden Bridge, and from The Little Bird Café, 53 Halifax Road, Todmorden. 

This production has been commissioned by Q-CAT (Quaker Concern for the Abolition of Torture) and is raising money for the Survivors of Torture Activity Fund.

To book a performance or for further information please contact Journeymen Theatre

Proceeds go to Survivors of Torture Fund.

‘John Shuttleworth's Back’... is giving him trouble...

Years of strenuous DIY, not to mention playing his organ whilst perched upon a multi pack of Diet Sprite with no lumber support, has taken its toll. But - ever the trouper - John returns to regale audiences with an evening of his classic songs (plus new ones and hilarious 'back' stories), pausing only to reapply his deep heat rub!

The Runaways with Director Q&A

Hebden Bridge Picture House
4.30pm (doors 4.15pm)

The Runaways

When misguided father of three, Reith (Mark Addy) passes away, his children, Angie (Molly Windsor), Polly (Macy Shackleton) and Ben (Rhys Connah), are left to cope alone; Angie acting as surrogate mother.

As Whitby, the coastal town where they live, closes up for winter their Uncle Blythe (Lee Boardman) suddenly returns from prison, harbouring a grudge over a long-standing family debt. With no other option Angie is forced to go on the run with her siblings and two of the family’s donkeys.

After a desperate scrabble through the alleyways of Whitby, the three children escape in to the harsh landscape and wilderness of the North York Moors. Here Angie begins an odyssey, the search for their estranged mother Maggie (Tara Fitzgerald).

With Blythe in close pursuit, the children and donkeys venture west across the country, crossing paths with chancers, thieves, and a boy on a horse named Toby (James Senneck).

Angie ever resilient, forces the family on despite the hardships, ever hopeful of meeting the mother she’s idolised since birth, but what if she doesn’t live up to expectations? Through the many lessons learnt along the way, Angie, and their siblings discover for better or worse, what it truly means to be a family.

This screening will be followed with a Q&A with Director, Richard Heap. This is Richard Heap’s debut fiction feature film. He has previously been twice BAFTA long-listed and nominated for Grierson Award

The Alan Petford Annual Memorial Lecture

Causes and cawseys

Making and repairing highways through the Wakefield manor court, 1550 – 1700

Murray Seccombe

Causes and cawseys

It can be difficult to find out much about local roads and how they were looked after before parish and turnpike trust records in the 1700s. The Wakefield court leet records provide an exceptional – possibly unique – record of complaints, repairs and local office holding in the townships of Halifax parish in the turbulent years of Elizabethan and Stuart England. This lecture will discuss the place of highway policy and practice in the transition from manorial regulation to governance through the parish and county.

Murray is Secretary of Hebden Bridge Local History Society, in the throes of doing his PhD at Lancaster University, researching road administration in the South Pennines, c. 1550-1800, with a special emphasis on aspects of social development and local governance. His background was in the not-for-profit transport sector, and he has lived and walked in Hebden Bridge area for 35 years.

Methodist Church, Market St. Hebden Bridge. 7.30. Free to members; £3 for visitors.

8.15pm (doors at 7.30pm)

Cllr Dr Carol Stow, the Mayor of Hebden Royd Town Council, is delighted to invite you all to a fundraising screening of the climate change documentary 2040, in support of CROWS – Community Rights of Way Service

All profits will go to help CROWS continue their work improving and maintaining footways and bridleways across Calderdale.

Award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream.

Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.

"A much more optimistic vision"
— Fenja Akinde-Hummel, The Upcoming

"Entertaining and uplifting"
— Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter

Doors open at 7.30pm and the film commences at 8.15pm. The film is 92 minutes long.

National Theatre Live: Cyrano de Bergerac (15)

Hebden Bridge Picture House
7pm (doors 6pm)

James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.

Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all – if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There's just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano – or can his mastery of language set Roxane's world alight?

Edmond Rostand's masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano's powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.

Celebrating our woodland heritage

Chris Atkinson

Celebrating our woodland heritage

Woodlands in the South Pennines have until now received only minimal attention concerning their development and use through human history. Since 2017 communities across the South Pennines have been working to change this. Led by Pennine Prospects as part of the National Lottery Heritage Funded project and supported by the University of Bradford, volunteers have undertaken 38 archaeological woodland surveys and 5 excavations, all of which have aimed to improve our understanding of the role of woodlands in human history.

Chris Atkinson is an archaeologist with many years’ experience in community archaeology and landscape surveys. As Heritage and Landscape Development Manager at Pennine Prospects, he has played a leading role in the ‘Celebrating our woodland heritage’ project. He is also Honorary Visiting Lecturer in the School of Archaeological and Forensic Sciences at the University of Bradford.

Royal Opera: Fidelio

Hebden Bridge Picture House
Tuesday 17 March at 7.15pm (doors 6.15pm)

Live from the Royal Opera House

Beethoven's only opera is a masterpiece, an uplifting story of risk and triumph. In this new production, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Jonas Kaufmann plays the political prisoner Florestan, and Lise Davidsen his wife Leonore (disguised as 'Fidelio') who daringly sets out to rescue him. Set in strong counterpoint are the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determined love and the cruelty of an oppressive regime.

The music is transcendent throughout and includes the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners' Chorus and Florestan's impassioned Act II cry in the darkness and vision of hope. Tobias Kratzer's new staging brings together the dark reality of the French Revolutionary 'Terror' and our own time to illuminate Fidelio's inspiring message of shared humanity.

Common Problems

The history of common land in Northern England 1851 – 1901

Professor Angus Winchester

CommonsNorthern England contains the largest expanses of common land in the country, but this is only a fragment of the extent of the communally used land which existed before the wave of moorland enclosures in the 18th and 19th centuries. Commons were an integral part of the rural economy, providing not only essential grazing for livestock but also fuel for the hearth, building materials and other resources.

This lecture explores how past societies tried to achieve sustainable management of these shared resources on which they depended for their livelihood.

Angus Winchester is Emeritus Professor of History at Lancaster University. He has longstanding research interests in the history of upland landscapes and of common land in particular. His publications include The Harvest of the Hills: rural life in northern England and the Scottish Borders, 1400-1700 (Edinburgh University Press, 2000). He is currently working on a book on the history of common land in Britain.

Royal Ballet: Swan Lake

Hebden Bridge Picture House
Wednesday 1st April at 7.15pm (doors 6.15pm)

Swan Lake

Liam Scarlett's glorious production of Swan Lake, new in 2018, returns for its first revival. While remaining faithful to the Marius Petipa/Lev Ivanov text, Scarlett's additional choreography and John Macfarlane's magnificent designs breathe new life into what is arguably the best-known and most-loved classical ballet. The entire Company shines in this eternal tale of doomed love, a masterpiece filled with iconic moments. Tchaikovsky's first score for ballet soars with its symphonic sweep and combines perfectly with exquisite choreography from the grand pas de deux of Prince Siegfried and Odile to the swans at the lakeside. An intoxicating mix of spectacle and intimate passion, the overall effect is irresistible.

Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night.

The evil spirit Von Rothbart, arbiter of Odette's curse, disguises his daughter Odile as Odette to trick Siegfried into breaking his vow of love. Fooled, Siegfried declares his love for Odile, and so dooms Odette to suffer under the curse forever.

Royal Opera: Cavalleria Rusticana & Pagliacci

Doors 6pm

Damiano Michieletto's Olivier Award-winning production of Mascagni and Leoncavallo's one-act operas is a thrilling, cinematic experience.

 

Two opera classics are drawn together in this wonderfully observed re-creation of life in a south Italian village as a travelling theatre visits and emotions erupt. The award-winning production by Damiano Michieletto presents vividly the fast-moving, shocking events brought about by secret love and uncontrollable jealousy.

The music is full of Italianate melody in the great choruses that bring the villagers together in celebration and revelry, alongside the solo arias and tense confrontations that provoke violence and tragedy. With thrilling singing and intense drama, 'Cav and Pag' distils into one wonderful night out, the enduring appeal of Italian opera in its most familiar form.
