Romesh Ranganathan returns to Ropery Hall

Just months after he wowed the audience at his first visit to Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall, comedian Romesh Ranganathan has announced he is returning with  new show ‘Irrational’ next spring.

Tickets are already on sale for the gig on Sunday, March 20 and after just days on sale it looks like his appearance will soon be sold out.

“Romesh’s impact on the comedy circuit since his debut in 2010 has seen him quickly make a name for himself.  He certainly did when he appeared at Ropery Hall in February this year with his critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival show, Rom wasn’t built in a day,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk.

In his new show. Irrational,  Romesh will examine the issues close to his heart, and explains why everybody else is wrong about them.

“This new show promises to be as much of a hit as his previous shows!” Liz continued.

If is followers can’t wait until March 20 to see him at the Malt kiln Road venue Romesh will be launching his very own six-part series for BBC Three “Asian Provocateur” that sees his mum sending him off to Sri Lanka in search of his roots on the trip she has always hoped he would make.

He will also be taking a regular place on the panel of The Apprentice You’re Fired that begins later this month alongside the business experts and celebrities who appear each week to discuss the outgoing candidates’ performance.

Tickets for Romesh’s show will cost £14 in advance or £16 on the door and are available now from www.roperyhall.co.uk by phoning 01652 660380 or by calling into the Craft Gallery at The Ropewalk.

Knight & Spiers 

On a summer’s day in 2016, the organisers of FolkEast Festival masterminded one of the most intriguing and exciting collaborations on today’s folk scene.

Peter Knight, legendary violinist and ex-member of folk-rock band Steeleye Span was paired with leading melodeon player and ex-Bellowhead member, John Spiers, for a special one-off performance which left audiences in awe.   With no space to be found in the marquee, people stood five deep in the pouring rain in order to witness the bringing together of two of the most genuinely gifted musicians in their respective fields.

With a standing ovation and roars for more, and much to the delight of folk fans everywhere, Knight and Spiers decided not to leave things there.

The pairing of violin and melodeon is not a new one, but in the hands of Knight and Spiers, improvisation and invention meet the listener at every turn. Together they have created a musical document that resonates with history, but also something that should inspire future generations of musicians to engage with Britain’s folk dancing heritage, and the beautiful, mysterious tunes that can be found within that heritage.

These uniquely gifted musicians make a sublime pairing, and create a live performance to be remembered for a long time.
