With kind permission of Lord and Lady Ronaldshay

The event is being held by Richmond Building Preservation Trust to raise funds for the restoration of Richmond Grammar School.

The school once boasted Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) as one of its many famous pupils. After Richmond School, Charles attended Rugby and Oxford University and became a brilliant mathematician. However, fame came his way under his pseudonym of Lewis Carroll when he wrote the Alice Books.

We hope the event will highlight his association with Richmond and The Old Grammar School.

Nowadays, after some introductory remarks by the Town Mayor, and thanksgiving prayers by a clergyman, a local farmer presents to the Mayor a small sackful of newly threshed corn. This the Mayor hands over to a miller, who examines the corn and when he passes favourable judgement on its quality, the Mayor presents the farmer with a bottle of wine. Other bottles are broached, and bystanders are invited to join in a toast to a good harvest.

Haydn's much-loved 'Joke' Quartet leads naturally into one of Beethoven's early Quartets, still rooted in the Classical idiom. The Quartet is then joined by star clarinettist Annelien van Wauwe for Mozart's wonderful Clarinet Quintet.

David Cemmick
Venue: The Station
An exhibition by the internationally renowned artist and sculptor.

David Cemmick has been a freelance artist since his first sell-out solo exhibition in 1974, at the age of nineteen. Over the past four decades he has travelled extensively, gathering field experience and documenting scientific expeditions in some of the world’s remotest habitats.

This has helped fuel his deep respect and fascination for the animal world and given him the thirst to make ‘art’ from what he has seen in nature. From field sketch to finished painting, sculptures in bronze and clay, figurative sculptures and sketches.

Deeds Not Words with Helen Pankhurst
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 2.30pm
Suffragette descendent and campaigner Helen Pankhurst charts how the lives of women in the UK have changed over the last 100 years.

It is one hundred years after the Fourth Reform Act, which saw propertied women over 30 gain the vote for the first time.

At this last event of the Richmond Walking & Book Festival Helen Pankhurst celebrates landmark successes, little-known victories, where progress has stalled or reversed, looking into politics, money, identity, violence, culture and social norms.

Combining historical insight with inspiring argument, Deeds Not Words reveals how far women have come since the suffragettes, how far we still have to go and how we might get there.

We Are Bronte
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A riotous interpretation of the Bronte myth, taking the real and imaginary worlds of Yorkshire's literary siblings as their inspiration.

Morecambe and Wise meets David Lynch in this madcap reimagining of the Brontë myth, presented in Publick Transport's irreverent and playful style.

With only a handful of props, two performers combine rigorous physical theatre with anarchic comedy to deconstruct not only gothic themes of love, madness and revenge, but also themselves. So, expect wind, spooky houses and really bad coughs!

Part play, part enquiry into the act of putting on a play, this promises to be no ordinary Brontë adaptation.

Richmondshire Concerts present a piano recital by Joanna MacGregor
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
One of the world's most innovative and creative classical pianists.

Joanna MacGregor combines her role as Head of Piano at the Royal Academy of Music with a busy career as concert soloist, teacher and festival curator. She is famous as a performer of Bach and Scarlatti, but her repertoire is diverse, as she shows tonight on a powerful Steinway D concert grand.

From their strong opening chords, through the lyrical middle sections to the stormy finish, Beethoven's 32 Variations explore not only the range and colour of the piano but also every imaginable technique. Then Chopin's Mazurkas, rich and flamboyant, lead into the young Alberto Ginastera's vividly imagined Argentinian folkloric dances, concluding a virtuosic first half. Sofia Gubaidulina's Chaconne follows, another youthful work based on an older form. Black Earth, written by Fazıl Say in 1997, is a fusion of Eastern and Western styles and brings a note of loneliness and loss . Finally, Beethoven's great middle-period Appassionata sonata closes an evening of extraordinary emotions.

Tickets are £20 at www.rsconcerts.org or at Castle Hill Bookshop or on the door, subject to availability

Trump. Your wrong. Brexit. Your wrong. Facebook. Your wrong. Tinder. Your wrong. Religion. Your wrong. Fashion. Your wrong. Grammar. Your wrong!

The pressure to ‘get it right’ is tremendous! Right?

'Your Wrong' questions the nature of understanding and explores our modern day need to be right about everything.

Jimmy's Fiddle
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A fantastic evening's entertainment presented by Tom McConville and Alan Fitzsimmons.

James Hill was probably the most famous fiddler on Tyneside during the late Georgian and early Victorian periods. He wrote more than 40 tunes, mainly for hornpipes, inspired and informed by the places and characters he came to know.

This story is a reflective account of his life, told through ‘Jimmy’s ghost’ and set in and around The Hawk public house, which was owned by his future father-in-law. The narrative unfolds to a back-drop of James Hill’s own compositions, clog dancing and songs from the time, incorporating some newly commissioned pieces.

Featuring two top virtuoso fiddle players Tom Mcconville (BBC Musician of the Year) and Stewart Hardy, this show provides fantastic entertainment for all the family. Tom and Stewart will be joined by two of the North East’s finest singers Alan Fitzimmons and Jim Mageean and clog dancing champion Natalie Rae.

Come along to the museum with your family stories of military service. We’d love to see any military artefacts, memorabilia, letters or personal items you have.

Our staff will be joined by experts from The Royal Armouries, The York Army Museum and The Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry Museum. They will help uncover the story of your relative’s participation in both world wars, and could even solve the mystery of that military looking thing you’ve had in the loft all these years!

This is a FREE event, included in your museum admission.

We’ll be able to help more if bring as much official information as possible.

Research into soldiers who served in World War One is relatively straightforward, but for those soldiers who served in World War Two, it can be problematic; individual service records are still held and controlled by the Ministry of Defence but they are available to next-of-kin.

Richmondshire Concerts present the Royal Northern Sinfonia Wind Octet
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
A return visit by the musicians from Sage, Gateshead.

Royal Northern Sinfonia loved coming to the Richmondshire Concerts last year and gave us our largest audience ever. It's a pleasure to welcome them back, this time as a wind octet.

Two familiar and very lovely works by Mozart are interspersed with works by modern British composers, Stephen Oliver and Jonathan Dove, both of them passionate Mozartians.

Tickets are £15 at www.rsconcerts.org, or at Castle Hill Bookshop, or on the door, subject to availability

Richmondshire Concerts present Divertimenti
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
Excellent classical string quintet.

The five members of Divertimenti are top ranking performers, with a wealth of world-wide concert experience as soloists, orchestral principals and chamber music players.

A number of beautiful quintets have been written for the unusual double-cello lineup. First tonight is Boccherini's famous String Quintet - which will have many in the audience exclaiming "Oh, but I know this!". Next comes Sally Beamish's Divertimenti, written for this very ensemble. Just before the interval, the cellos take a rest during Dvořák's luscious Terzetto.

Finally, Schubert’s great C Major Quintet forms the backbone of the evening's programme, and will be a fabulous ending to the 71st season of the Richmondshire Concerts.

Tickets are £15 at www.rsconcerts.org or at Castle Hill Bookshop, or on the door, subject to availability.
