Visit to Grinton Smelt Mill

30th Jun 2018 10.00 and 14.00

Swaledale Museum, The Green, Reeth DL11 6TX
Join one of two guided tours of the Grinton smelt mill site in Swaledale, the only uninhabited lead smelting mill still with its roof on.

The guide is Richard Lamb who will talk about the mill and its environs with the lime kiln and quarries on Sharrow Hill, the flue, mining remains, the water supply, the peat house and associated buildings which have not survived, and the development of, and structures remaining within, the mill itself.

The visits will be at 10am and 2pm and numbers are strictly limited. Advance booking is essential through the Swaledale Museum in Reeth.

The cost is £9 per person which also includes a CD of Richard’s recent paper ‘A Smelting Miscellany No. 3’, describing in detail the likely arrangement of Grinton Mill prior to its redevelopment in 1820 and the survivals of part of a slag hearth and the wooden framework for a large bellows.
10am and 2pm £9 per person. Advance booking essential.

John Tams & Barry Coope

20th Oct 2018 20.00

Reeth Memorial Hall DL11 6QT
John Tams described by Mojo as 'one of the ultimate British songwriters' has had a career spanning four decades in every medium. A member of the Albion Band and Home Service he is perhaps best known for his work at the National Theatre and as Rifleman Daniel Hagman in the Sharpe television series. He also worked as a music consultant on War Horse at the National Theatre. War Horse received six nominations for the Olivier Awards, including one for the Best Sound, for Tams and fellow team members Chris Shutt and Adrian Sutton. He is a five times winner of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Barry Coope is one part of the vocal folk trio, Coope, Boyes and Simpson. Formed around 1990, their sound is rich and often includes unusual vocal harmonies. Together, Tams & Coope are an award-winning duo. Their voices sounded perfect: rich, powerful and full.

A Christmas Carol

6th Dec 2018 20.00

Reeth Memorial Hall DL11 6QT
GreenMatthews bring you a brand-new retelling of the best-loved Yuletide adventure of them all – Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”.

First published in 1843, the story is credited with reinventing and reinvigorating the British Christmas and has been loved and retold by every generation since. Using new lyrics and traditional English folk tunes, GreenMatthews (with special guest Jude Rees of Pilgrims’ Way) use a bewitching blend of voices and instruments to create a musical retelling of this seasonal favourite.

The first half of the show presents a blend of Victorian carols and midwinter folk songs which paint a vivid and colourful picture of the festive season in Dickens’ time. The second half is an hour-long ‘folk opera’ of his most iconic novella – the tale of how flinty-hearted miser Ebenezer Scrooge undergoes several ghostly visitations over the course of a cold and bitter Christmas Eve and awakes the following morning transformed into the epitome of the Christmas spirit – warm-hearted, generous and loving. This heartwarming tale is presented entirely in narrative song, using brand-new lyrics set to traditional English folk and carol melodies.

The show is the latest in a long line of similar ‘folk operas’ which fuse traditional song and storytelling such as Peter Bellamy’s The Transports, Fairport Convention’s Babbacombe Lee and of course Ewan McColl’s classic Radio Ballads. Composer Chris Green says “A Christmas Carol is one of those rare works of literature that has been completely assimilated into the popular consciousness. It’s a tale that has been retold and reinvented by each new generation for the last 170 years, much like a classic folk song – so it seemed a natural progression to retell it using traditional melodies with new words.”

“A Christmas Carol: A Folk Opera” is the perfect show for anyone looking to recapture the simple Yuletide delights of fellowship, laughter and good cheer.

Tickets £12 (£14 on the door); under 16s £3
