What’s On Soon
Cobbles and Clay Opening Mic started the Festival off in true local style. A gathering of nigh on 50 performers and audience members recreated the once familiar feeling of the old monthly Open Mic.
Monday 20 June
Haworth Festival continues at The Black Bull Haworth with Ben Blue Waters Blues and Roots and Steak Night. Great tasting steaks available from 6-8 pm. Great music after dinner! On the bill Ben Blue Waters, Martin Plock and Keystone Acoustic. Free entry. Music from 8.00pm.
Or if you fancy a bit of Storytelling instead head to Haworth Old Hall for Haworth Storytelling Circle’s Solstice Session at 8.00pm.
“It is that time again when the bards, poets and storytellers descend upon Haworth. This time falls close to the Summer Solstice. In the 7th century, Saint Eligius warned the recently converted inhabitants of Flanders against the age-old pagan solstice celebrations. According to the Vita by his companion Ouen, he’d say: “No Christian on the feast of Saint John or the solemnity of any other saint performs solestitia [summer solstice rites] or dancing or leaping or diabolical chants.” So, no diabolical chants then, but some diabolically good yarns.”
Sunday 19 June
Join Jim on the steps of the church at 10.00 am. for the Festival walk to Top Withins.
At 6.30 head down to Pied Piper Pianos on Mytholmes Lane for Captain of the Lost Waves. It’s going to be a great intimate gig down there. Arrive early if you want to get in!
Saturday 18 June
On Saturday 18 there is plenty to do. Give one or more of these a go.
Get into the drumming mood at Haworth Old Hall at 2.00pm for a Fun Drum.
Later choose between seeing the wonderful Kala Sangam at Cobbles and Clay. The Kala Sangam artists, in partnership with the Museum, will present a physical tapestry of movement, music and spoken word, inspired by the poetry of the Brontë sisters. 7.00pm.
Or head to Pied Piper Pianos to see Susan Askey’s first public, solo exhibition opening event today from 7.00 – 9.00pm and running for a month. (Closing on Friday 8th July).
Based in Hebden Bridge, Susan makes art that is feminine, semi abstract…sometimes figurative, sometimes landscape based or focused on a detail…varied in style, but always heartfelt, her paintings are interspersed with delicate, natural hanging sculptures. Come along and enjoy an evening in our bright and beautiful piano gallery. The artist will be available to chat about her work/commissions.
If some live music is what you fancy then the Black Bull is the place to be where the excellent Sapphire will be playing from around 8.00pm.
