Threlkeld Activities Association (TAA) have announced the first part of their programme of music, drama and film for 2019.
Barbara Lowesmith of the TAA said: “We had another successful year in 2018 with a diversity of music and drama plus some film nights and a bigger, better Craft Fair last month. So, 2018 will be a hard act to follow. However, we will continue to strive for diversity with a wide range of musical genres.”
Over the last couple of years, it has become a tradition to start the year with a Sing-Along film in January on a Sunday afternoon and these have been enthusiastically received! This year it will be GREASE on 13th January – so brush up on your Jive dancing or just come and enjoy the atmosphere! It’s a great way of having fun on a dark January Sunday afternoon.
This event includes a mid-interval break where Cumbrian style hot-dogs and apple pie will be available. There will be a limit on numbers – so this year you can pre-book on-line through the village hall website. February sees the start of the music programme with a classical concert by The Cumbrian Duo on classical guitar and harp, playing the music of Cumberland and Westmorland.
This event will include a short recital of some Cumbrian dialect. This will be followed in March by the well-known Steve Knightley from Show of Hands on his solo tour ‘Roadworks’ and then in April, the ever popular Burden of Paradise featuring the renowned saxophonist Snake Davis.
The first half of the year will also include some original indie rock/pop in the style of 60s West coast by Mylittlebrother, Country music with Lisa Stanley and her band and we end the first half of the year with ‘The Chef Show’ which is best described as part play – part cookery demonstration! This unique event will include tasters of the Indian food cooked at the interval and at the end! Certainly not to be missed.
