Here comes this summer…
We can dream! As the weather starts to warm up the Ropery Hall programme winds down but before we go dark there a few treats left in store.
The 2013 “last Saturday of the month” folk sessions promoted by us in conjunction with Mad Dog Folk are doing really well and we look forward to full houses for Faustus, Sam Cater / The Young ‘Uns and Vin Garbutt. Many thanks go to Beverley Folk Festival which is sponsoring the Sam Carter/ The Young ‘Uns evening at the end of May. If you have been enjoying the folk nights you will love Beverley Folk Festival in June – well worth a try if you haven’t been before.
Mark Steel is sold out but if you want a laugh tickets are still available for Neil Innes at the end of May. We round of the current film season with a very strong finale with Anna Karenina, Great Expectations, Les Miserables and Zero Dark Thirty.
A new venture sees Cook’s of New Holland offering early evening meals in our Coffee Shop. Places are available on 4th and 24th May with 6.30pm and 7pm sittings. The 6.30pm sitting allows you to eat and then be in time for the show in Ropery Hall. The menus for the evenings are in the Coffee Shop section of the website. Booking is essential.
Finally we are venturing out of the building this summer. Anyone who has been in Ropery Hall for a sell out show when the temperature outside is above 15 degrees will be able to confirm that the hall gets too hot for comfort. Over-heating is the main reason that we close down over the summer – that and we know you are on holiday or gardening! For something different The Ropewalk is having a change of scene and on 12th July we will be presenting our favourite saxophonist Snake Davis with his Snake Strings at St. Mary’s Church in Barton. Tickets costing £12.50 are available from The Ropewalk.
We hope to see you there on a pleasant, warm summer’s evening…again we can dream.
