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.

Green Door

Traumatic, funny and ultimately triumphant. 

Ann Brown's true story of escaping a toxic relationship that almost killed her is a must watch for anyone over 14. 


Her play, Green Door, comes to Square Chapel, Halifax on 2nd April at 7.45pm.

"I strongly suspect 'Green Door' will be back before too long and even more strongly advise people to attend."

Easter Monday Duck Race

Postponed, with a view to holding the event later in the year, depending upon the situation

The annual Hebden Bridge Duck Race will take place on Easter Monday 13 April 2020.  This much-loved event organised by the Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge, will once again be supported by Jet2holidays, The Travel Centre Mytholmroyd and Benchmark Travel. 

The Rotary Club are hoping that the event will bring some life and much needed visitors back to the Town, as many businesses are still suffering from the recent flooding. All the profits from this year's event will be going to help the flood victims of Mytholmroyd & Hebden Bridge. 

The Duck Race is a family orientated event attracting vast numbers into the town to experience not only the race but a fun fair, entertainment, charity stalls and a fantastic array of food on sale. This year there will also be a Duck Fancy Dress Competition with an array of goodies for the winning entrants.

Honest, revealing and urgent, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet is a powerful first-hand account of humanity's impact on nature and a message of hope for future generations.

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.

Vintage Weekend

Hebden Bridge will, once again, be the place to be on the 1st and 2nd August 2020 when the Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge hosts the iconic charity fund raising Hebden Bridge Vintage Weekend.

The show has been described as 'The Best in the North of England'. Others describe the fabulous location and that spectators can walk amongst the vehicles and converse with the owners about their prized possessions.

This will be the 38th year for the event which is now well established as a premier attraction for the display of some 700 veteran, vintage and classic cars, motorcycles, military & commercial vehicles. 

Held in the heart of Hebden Bridge, at the picturesque Calder Holmes Park, (HX7 8AU), most of the famous British marques are represented at the rally, along with famous names from across the world. The open plan layout of the site allows members of the public to get up close to the exhibits and chat to their owners.

There are different display classes over the two days offering visitors a completely different show each day. Prizes will be awarded to all the winning entrants.
