2040: CROWS Fundraising Screening

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.

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.

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

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.

Picture-house

Friends of the Picture House present

Way Out West + The Music Box (U)

Laurel and Hardy

January's Friends of the Picture House screening is a double bill of the Laurel and Hardy classics Way Out West and The Music Box.

The Music Box might be the duo's best known short film, and perhaps best known film of all, pitting the hapless friends against the might of a piano that must be lifted up a long flight of stairs.

The main feature, Way Out West, has equally high stature in the pair's canon, seeing them tied up in the business of scheming gold prospectors as they travel to the frontier to deliver a deed. The feature length format gave Stan and Ollie the chance to show the many strings to their bows, such as delightful song and dance numbers. 

It's a treat to have these two on the big screen!

A Victorian artist paints Hebden Bridge

Discovering the landscape, paintings of John Holland

Diana Monahan and Justine Wyatt

Lecture 2

In 1869, at the White Horse in Hebden Bridge, there was an exhibition and sale of sixty-one paintings of the area by established landscape artist John Holland. This talk will focus especially on ‘View of Hebden Bridge from Fairfield’ which captures Hebden Bridge at a time of considerable change.

Both Diana and Justine are long-standing and active members of HBLHS. Their interests include walking the local landscape, and this has fed their historical researches. Diana began by researching the area around her own house, but has expertise in many areas; Justine has published her research into local water-powered industry and Fustianopolis.
