Eliza Southwood, Wednesday 4 June - Saturday 12 July

Monday - Saturday 10am - 5pm
Free admission

Eliza Southwood has created a range of screen-prints and digital illustrations that trace competitive cycling from the present day to its illustrious past.
Grand Tours and track cycling are reduced to strong and simple representations, often using just four of five colours. “I see everything through a kind of filter in terms of colour and line and wonder how it would look as an artwork,” she explains.
Southwood was an architect before studying art, and takes inspiration from the likes of Lautrec and Hockney.

The Legend of Sohni & Mahiwal, Thursday 5 June

7:30pm, Tickets: £10 /£8 / £5 (Full Price / Concessions / Students)
Recommended for ages 12+

Sohni, an accomplished potter, uses one of her perfectly crafted pots as a buoy to swim across the river. One stormy night, a jealous sister-in-law replaces Sohni’s pot with a flawed one. As she swims across the river, the pot begins to disintegrate. Sohni knows that if she does not turn back, she will drown. She continues to brave the waters because “love itself will be defeated if I turn back”.

The midnight trysts of the lovers Sohni and Mahiwal on the banks of the river Chenab in the Punjab are celebrated in Indian painting, literature, music, dance and film.
The artist Arpana Caur has created a body of work on the legend, influenced by Sufi interpretations of the story, where romantic and spiritual love are entwined. Images of these paintings are interwoven with readings of poems inspired by Caur’s work, with specially commissioned music by David Wilson and Inder ‘Goldfinger’ Matharu, and dance sequences choreographed and performed by Rashmi Sudhir with David Hamilton.

Heavy Metal - A History* by Andrew O'Neil, Saturday 7 Junel

*for people who don't necessarily like heavy metal†

†...but if you do, you'll really like it, we promise.

8pm, Tickets: £12 / £10 (Full price / Concessions)

A hilariously kick-arse tour through heavy metal by the UK's foremost metalhead stand-up comedian.

Want to learn how to headbang? Always wondered what happens in a mosh pit? Keen to learn the difference between blackened thrash and grindcore?

Did you know?

  • Any Old Iron by Harry Champion was the first heavy metal record
  • When Judas Priest singer Rob Halford (writer of the songs Hell Bent for Leather, Ram It Down, Delivering the Goods and Breaking the Law) came out as gay in the mid-90s, the metal community was shocked. They later expressed surprise at the defecatory habits of woodland bears and the religious inclination of the Pope
  • It takes the average metalhead ten minutes longer to get ready due to their all-black wardrobe.
  • The New Zealand All-Blacks are a rugby team and have nothing to do with heavy metal
  • Satan has all the best tunes... though their second album is patchy.

WARNING: This show will contain references to the musical genre known as ‘heavy metal’, not a loosely scientific defined subset of elements that exhibit metallic properties.

Wilde Without the Boy: A Dramatisation of ‘De Profundis', Thursday 12th June

7:30pm Tickets: £12 / £10 (Full price/Concession)

Directed and adapted by the award-winning Gareth Armstrong.

Painfully brilliant and passionate, Wilde Without the Boy is a glimpse into the bruised, loving soul of one of the greatest geniuses ever to have lived.

“...The gods had given me almost everything... genius... high social position... brilliancy, intellectual daring. Whatever I touched I made beautiful... I summed up all systems in a phrase, and all existence in an epigram... I became the spendthrift of my own genius...” Oscar Wilde, De Profundis

Performed by Gerard Logan (Olivier Nominee, RSC and Best Actor, 2011 Edinburgh Festival), this is a dramatic interpretation of ‘De Profundis’, the letter Oscar Wilde wrote in 1897 to his lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, from his cell in Reading Gaol. Two years previously, Wilde had been imprisoned for acts of gross indecency with other males.

Painfully brilliant and passionate, Wilde Without the Boy is a glimpse into the bruised, loving soul of one of the greatest geniuses ever to have lived.

The Rite of Spring, Sat 14th June

7:30pm Tickets: £12 / £10 (Full price / Concessions)

The Rite of Spring/Romeo and Juliet is a radical interpretation of Stravinsky’s ballet and orchestral concert work in the theatrical setting of love and hatred between two of Shakespeare’s rivalling households Capulet and Montague.

Conceived by Concert Theatre, the production uses commedia half masks and piano four-hands to create a music-centred physical theatre piece through the re-telling of Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy, with a collaboration among concert pianists from the Royal Academy of Music, actors and director from Lecoq-based system and mask specialists from Trestle Theatre. Recommended for ages 8+

Monday's Child, Sunday 15th June

1pm & 3pm Tickets: £7/ £6 / £5 (Full/Concession/Child)

Monday’s Child tells a simple poetic story of the unique bond between a grandmother and a child, sharing the delights and surprises of the respective stages of their lives: discoveries, memories, imaginings...
Great Gran can’t remember, but does remember to visit every week and play until bedtime. Together, they love to sing and dress up and are often oblivious of the challenges that the real world throws at them.

At just five years old, Tuesday Wild delights in discovering her world. She revels in the days with her eccentric Great Gran and loves learning new things – how to count, the different colours and the simplicities of ABC and 123.

With live music and dance, this imaginative, dream-like yet funny story explores how we learn, grow old and cope with new challenges.

Recommended for ages 3 – 7, their families and teachers.

Monday’s Child is part of Yorkshire Festival 2014.

The Life and Loves of a Nobody

7:30pm Tickets: £10 / £8 (Full price/Concession)

Life is a juggling act. Love is a high-wire. Try to do both at once, and it’s a long way down. But even if the act goes wrong, you can still be famous for the fall.

Rachel always wanted to be a star. Rachel wanted to run away with the circus. And have her name in lights. And escape from this house. And she dreamed of the future. But people can be ugly. The closer they are the uglier they get. And there’s nobody closer to yourself than yourself. Life is a juggling act. Love is a high-wire. Try to do both at once, and it’s a long way down. But even if the act goes wrong, you can still be famous for the fall.

‘Dizzying and hilarious... a brilliant, immersive performance.’ THE INDEPENDENT

‘Don headphones, goggles and a moustache, and embark on a mystery tour in which you will play a pivotal role and end on a high.’ THE GUARDIAN

An exceptional and unforgettable theatrical experience that puts participants into the heart of the Tour de France like no other.

Part of Yorkshire Festival 2014 100 days of Art & Culture in the lead up to the Tour De France arriving in Yorkshire.

A journey of adventure and imagination. Join Harrogate Theatre’s virtual peloton and star in your own Tour de France, with some brilliant twists thanks to the playful bunch at Il Pixel Rosso.

Video goggles and headphones mean participants become the star of their own Tour de France as they’re immersed into the race – with a brilliantly fun twist. Though they start out on the right track, the ‘rider’ takes a wrong turn, ending up on a fantastical voyage that takes them into space, under the sea and around many more remarkable locations before they re-join the peloton and win the coveted Yellow Jersey. It’s the Tour de France meets Wacky Races via the opening credits of Police Squad!

This promises to be a very special experience for a maximum of four people. Each participant will be fitted with video goggles and headphones and follow audio instructions for simple actions that mirror corresponding actions in the film.

One night, Arthur has an amazing dream about a beautiful pink and green boat with a stripy mast. He can't wait to tell everyone about it, but no one (not even his dog!) is interested. In fact, they don't even notice that this very same boat is growing on his head, getting larger and larger by the minute! Soon, Arthur is bouncing along the waves in his very own dream boat. Maybe now his family will listen to him!

Vin Garbutt is, justifiably, one of the best known performers of today's folk scene. His wealth of songs are either thought-provoking or funny (or both!). They are combined with zany, witty or plain crazy introductions which often sends the audience into uncontrolled laughter. Although Vin has been performing to packed houses for many years, his songs always remain fresh and vibrant and his repertoire is always changing. In addition, he is an accomplished guitarist and a great whistle player!
