Tuesday, 1st October 2019
Richmond Walking and Books Festival
Venue: The Station
Time: 9.00am
Walk 10: High Fells Challenge 2 – Leg 3 – The Shunners

After the diabolical weather last year, we have been asked to repeat this walk so you can see what last year’s group missed! We start in the pretty hamlet of Hardraw, famous for its pub, waterfall and band festival. The ascent of Great Shunner Fell is long and relentless but brings its reward with the highest mountain of this year’s Challenge at 2,349ft. Straddling Swaledale and Wensleydale, on a clear day you can see all the High Fells we will have visited on both last year’s and this year’s Challenge. Little Shunner is a pimple by comparison leading to the start of the descent at Fossdale Moss. The return down the valley beside Hearne Beck is lovely, although sadly most of the wild flowers that thrive here in summer will be over. If you have time and energy after the walk a visit to Hardraw Force waterfall is well worth the small charge.

Tickets £7 available from Castle Hill Bookshop 01748 824 243 or www.booksandboots.org

We can admire Bolton Hall, the present-day home of Lord Bolton before following field and woodland paths to view his earlier, less comfortable, castle home before catching the 15.55hrs train back to Leyburn.

Venue: The Green Howards Museum

Walk 19: High Fells Challenge 2 – Leg 6 – Rogans Seat, Water Crag and Tan Hill – 12 miles hard

Starting from Keld we set off down the limestone gorge passing through the lead mining archaeology around Crackpot Hall and into Swinner Gill. This steep sided valley takes us up to the ridge at High Stone Man, from where we walk up the shooting track to Rogan's Seat at 2,205ft. No stone seat here but fine views of the extensive grouse moors and lead mining waste. We head out over the peat hags, and maybe some bog, onto Water Crag at 2,192ft. If clear we will see the Tan Hill Inn, at 1,732ft, in the distance, and walk past the old Coal Mines (The Tan) to reach its welcome refreshment. We will drag ourselves away to head down the Pennine Way back to Keld.

Richmond Walking and Books Festival
Venue: The Station
Time: 9.00am
Walk 20: Upper Swaledale Barns – 8 miles moderate

We repeat a very successful special interest walk from last year, but with an extension to Ravenseat and the possibility of a tea-break at the farm owned by the Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen. Field barns and other historic buildings are a characteristic feature of the Yorkshire Dales and particularly so in Swaledale. Starting from Keld this walk across the upper dale focusses on some of the buildings, their previous uses and historical setting, and the memories which local people have of them, whilst of course enjoying all the wider aspects of this world class landscape. We head for Angram and walk via Black Hill and High Bridge to Ravenseat, before returning via Cotterby Scars to our starting point.

Walk 22: Both Sides of Swaledale – A Downholme Circuit – 13 miles moderate

This circular walk follows Wainwright’s Coast to Coast route as far as Marske.

Walk 23: Fremington Edge and Calver – 10 miles moderate/hard

This is a classic walk in this part of the Dale giving great views of both Swaledale and Arkengarthdale – but there is plenty of height to be gained – hence the grading. From Reeth we climb up to Fremington Edge and walk along the top, before dropping down to Storthwaite Hall and on to Arkle Town. We follow the track to an old quarry below Cringley Hill then down to Fore Gill Gate. We climb again to the top of Calver Hill before descending back to the finish in Reeth.

Walk 24: The Historic Environs of Richmond – 6.5 miles easy. The walk will last approximately 3.5 hours

Starting with a tour of the Grade II listed Richmond Railway Station, we follow the old railway line to visit the impressive ruins of Easby Abbey, one of the best-preserved monasteries of the Premonstratensian 'White Canons'. The neighbouring parish church contains rare 13th century wall paintings. Passing through the delightful hamlet of Easby, with its Georgian Country House, we walk through rural fields and along farm tracks following the line of the Iron Age Scots Dyke, a linear earthwork extending from the River Tees to south of the River Swale. The elegant country park of Aske Hall provides a contrast to the farmland scenery before we return to Richmond.

Fourum in concert
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
For an amazing 15th successive year, this ever-popular folk band returns for another evening of scintillating entertainment.

Combining over 20 instruments with skilled harmony singing, Fourum bring to the stage a bewitching combination of their own original ballads - recounting the history, legends and characters of Swaledale - with a more traditional folk repertoire drawn from Scotland, Ireland and Tyneside.

Against a backdrop of evocative images, the band also demonstrate their versatility with occasional forays into acoustic classical music and folk-based music from the 70s and 80s.

As always, their performance will be full of audience engagement and humour. This is a fascinating, feel-good evening of music, not to be missed!

Proceeds from this concert will go towards The Georgian Theatre Royal.

Andy Parsons: Healing the Nation
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 8.00pm
An evening of stand-up with Andy Parsons, as seen on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, QI and repeated on Dave.

“It was 24th June 2016 and I found myself contemplating a supermarket meal deal. I only wanted a sandwich and I only needed a sandwich but given that I could get a snack and a drink for only 5p more it seemed financially irresponsible not to. I had spent so long pondering the EU Referendum result from the day before that I was now in a massive rush. The lad on the till scanned the first two items, no problem, but the third item he couldn’t get to scan at all. I thought this is going to be a nightmare – there was a queue building up and he looked like he was going to call the supervisor. Then to his credit, he tried to scan it one more time, it wouldn’t scan – so he went ‘bip’ himself and chucked it through. And it was at that moment I thought ‘oh we’ll be alright as a country we will’.

And we will be alright. Trust me. I’m not a politician.”

Crimes on the Coast
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A secluded island hotel just off the English coast becomes a crime scene, as a scandal-inducing femme-fatale is felled.

Multi-award-winning theatre company New Old Friends present Crimes on the Coast, a comedy thriller by Feargus Woods Dunlop and directed by James Farrell (Associate Director - The 39 Steps, West End). The show enjoyed a sell-out national tour in 2018 (under previous title Crimes Under the Sun) and hits the road again in 2019 featuring four actors playing multiple outrageous characters, and a plot that romps along in the company’s trademark inventive style.

Inspired by Agatha Christie, Noel Coward and PG Wodehouse, you are invited on an hilarious but murderous trip to a classic English Riviera retreat.

Silas Marner
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A stage adaptation of George Eliot's acclaimed novel.

Wrongfully condemned and outcast from society, a poor weaver, eaten up with bitterness and anger, becomes a doomed miser and recluse, until he is forced to take in a young orphan girl. Their mutual friendship leads to joy, love and his redemption.

Silas Marner, the great Victorian epic novel, is thrillingly and theatrically brought to the stage by the renowned Conn Artists Theatre Company in the bicentenary year of George Eliot’s birth. The heart moving action, set in the early years of the 19th century, is performed by an ensemble cast of seven actors accompanied by music and songs of the period.

“...does the production...faithfully capture the cumulative effect of the novel’s chains of incident and commentary? The answer is that it does.” Financial Times

Supported by The Arts Council and presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd. Directed by Nick Young

Tickets from £11 to £16 are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking service.

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.


Tickets are £5 and can be ordered online or by phone.

Of course, the world is still completely messed up – so don’t worry, it won’t be too joyous. A mix of storytelling, observations, a dash of social politics and a lovely routine about a smear test. This show has everything!

The last twelve months have been massive for Ruffell: a smash hit UK tour; heaps of television appearances, including: Live At The Apollo, Hypothetical, 8 Out Of 10 Cats; and she has learnt how to make the perfect lemon cake.

“Ruffell’s new show could hardly be any better” The Guardian

“The Raconteurish Ruffell is a hoot” The Telegraph

“On the cusp of stardom” Evening Standard

Strictly 14+
