Where is Mrs Christie?
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A drama centred on the real-life mystery surrounding Agatha Christie's disappearance in 1926.

Agatha Christie was one of the greatest thriller writers of all time and certainly amongst the most prolific.

In 1926, she was at the centre of a mystery as perplexing as any of her fiction. Her crashed car was discovered in Surrey and the famous author was missing, presumed dead by many, for eleven days. However, she was eventually found at a luxury hotel in Harrogate. She claimed then, and for the rest of the life, that she was suffering from amnesia and remembered nothing. Neither the press nor the police believed her.

Liz Grand stars in this intriguing one-woman show. Did Agatha Christie lie, and if so why? Did she suffer from amnesia? Was it a publicity stunt? Or was there a darker secret involved in this disappearance which was to affect her for the rest of her life?

Tickets cost £14 and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking service.

1001 Moments with Troy Hawke
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
One of the British Fringe Guide Top Recommended Shows of 2017 and 2018. Pure comedy gold!

Society doesn’t have a clue what to do with home schooled naif, Troy Hawke. Equally, Troy is clueless as to how to process what’s going on in front of him. He’s puzzled by so much… the middle aisle of Aldi, the word ‘sick’ as a compliment and being falsely accused of shouting in Poundland.

Troy is on a quest to make sense of it all. A quest that also leads to his involvement in a Liverpool street robbery that made the national news.

As seen on Benidorm (ITV), Live at the Electric (BBC3) and Blue Go Mad in Ibiza (C5).

***** “Character comedy that is near perfection” - The New Current

**** “Undeniably funny” - Chortle

**** “Perfectly worded jokes” - Broadway Baby

I, Malvolio
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
“Be not afraid of GREATNESS. Some are born GREAT, some achieve GREATNESS, and some have GREATNESS thrust upon ‘em!” Malvolio


I, Malvolio is the story of Twelfth Night told through the eyes of Shakespeare’s most pent-up steward. Written by Tim Crouch, it is a charged, hilarious and unsettling rant from a man who was “notoriously wronged”.

In this story of lost dignity, prudery, practical jokes and bullying, Malvolio draws his audience into the madness of Shakespeare’s play and makes it his own.

A show for anyone who has ever been told off, called a name or fallen in love with the wrong person!

Tickets cost £12 and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.

Top antiques expert David Elstob will be hosting a free valuation day at The Station for all your antiques, fine art and collectables.

While there is no obligation at all attached to the valuations, anyone wishing to sell an item will be given the option to have it included in the next auction at the Bedale saleroom.

Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act is a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship and a reason to REJOICE!!

Orlando
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
Orlando: Who is she? Who is he? Who are we?

Find out in the life-affirming, comedic tale of an immortal poet, whose gender cannot be pinned down, whose spirit cannot be caged, and whose irreverent, romantic adventures across British history – from the 1500s to the present day – provide a magic-realist exploration of human identity; personal, sexual and national.

Drawing on a decade’s worth of critically-acclaimed theatre-making, Dyad Productions – performer Rebecca Vaughan and writer/director Elton Townend Jones – explore what it means to find our place in the world whilst remaining utterly true to who we are.

Based on the satirical 1928 novel by Virginia Woolf, this production comes from the award-winning creators of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Christmas Gothic, Dalloway, I, Elizabeth, Female Gothic, The Time Machine and Austen’s Women.

Drama Baby by Jamie Brittain


It’s the final rehearsal before the practical exam for A-Level Theatre Studies and two competing groups attempt to achieve the ever-elusive top grade whilst negotiating sex, alcohol and Antonin Artaud. As egos clash and new relationships are formed and broken, Drama Baby goes to the heart of what it means to perform and what it’s like when the costumes and lights are stripped away.


The Changing Room by Chris Bush


This lyrical piece explores what it means to be a young person in the age of digital nativism. Are they teenagers? Are they adults? Set in and around a swimming pool, The Changing Room follows a group of teens full of excitement, impatience and uncertainty, each with their own secret worries and desires.

Forty Five Minutes by Anya Reiss

When a computer error means a group of students are given an incorrect deadline for their UCAS application they take to the school IT suite in a state of sheer panic. Forty Five Minutes explores what happens when young people are forced to make decisions about their future and being rushed headlong into adulthood when you still feel like a child.

Shanghai: Revolutionary City
Venue: The Green Howards Museum
Time: 7pm to 8.30pm
Museum Director, Lynda Powell explores the role of the men sent to Shanghai to serve British interests.



During the 1920s, Shanghai was crawling with spies, missionaries, political agitators and colonial entrepreneurs. Many countries, including Britain, made lucrative treaties with the Chinese, enabling them to establish trading outposts outside the ancient fortress city, and channel much-needed cash into near bankrupt post-war economies back home. The Green Howards were part of this intoxicating environment.

Antiques Valuation Event
Venue: The Station
Time: 10.00am - 3.00pm
Top antiques expert David Elstob will be hosting a free valuation day at The Station for all your antiques, fine art and collectables.

David is one of only a small number of auctioneers in the country to be recognised as a RICS Chartered Arts and Antiques Surveyor; a rare distinction that puts him firmly into the industry’s elite. Having held senior positions at premier auction houses in the region, now runs his own business with his wife Beth, a leading jewellery consultant and valuer.

Elstob & Elstob is based at Bedale Hall in Bedale and aims to provide a focal point for buying and selling high-quality antiques, fine art and objects of distinction. The couple are joined by a team of specialists who have previously worked at high-end institutions including Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Bonhams and Doyle in New York.

This free valuation day provides an ideal opportunity for people to find out more about a whole range of contemporary or antique objects, including silver, ceramics, glass, pictures, sculpture or other collectables.

While there is no obligation at all attached to the valuations, anyone wishing to sell an item will be given the option to have it included in the next auction at the Bedale saleroom.

For more information about Elstob & Elstob’s valuation services, sales or the event at The Station, please call 01677 333003.

Eat Your Greens before they Eat YOU!
Venue: Gilling West Village Hall
Time: 19:30
A talk on The Wonderful World of Carnivorous Plants with Peter & Hellenentje Walker

An illustrated talk by the proprietors of Wack's Wicked Plants, a North Yorkshire nursery that specialises in unusual plants - and carnivorous ones in particular! Their passion for their subject, and their fabulous display, won them a Gold Medal at Chelsea Flower Show last year.

They'll be regaling us with terrific colour images of their collection, and bringing along a selection of their favourites for us to get up close and personal with. (Well, maybe not too close!)

Members free, non-members always very welcome at just £3.

Hosted by Gilling Gardening Society
