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 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, he has recently launched 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.

Giants of Science
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A raucous romp through the hilarious history of science with this comic duo.

Howard Coggins knows nothing about Science. Stu Mcloughlin knows even less.

Nevertheless, they have agreed to give a lecture on the subject, and after enlisting the help of the smartest scientific sages of the ages, that’s just what they aim to do.

But even with the likes of Albert Einstein, Galileo, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin and… um… Kriss Akabusi along for the ride, the chances of the dim-witted duo making it through the evening with any sense of dignity remaining intact seems less than likely.

Still, they’re determined, like a pair of atoms missing a couple of electrons, to stay positive. With jarring jokes, pitiful puppetry, and the silliest of scientific songs, you can expect an entertaining and hilarious evening. It might even be… scien-triffic!

14+ age recommendation

Acclaimed musicians Chris Green and Sophie Matthews take in 600 years of musical history in 90 minutes!

Featuring long forgotten songs and tunes (not to mention jokes!) Chris and Sophie paint a vibrant and vivid picture of our musical DNA, mixing the familiar and the obscure, the raucous and the reflective and the courtly and the commonplace.

Add to that the wit of Blackadder and 1066 and All That and the stage is set for a veritable musical feast!

Saturday, 9th March 2019
Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
From a conventional upbringing to global notoriety via The Naked Civil Servant, Quentin Crisp was an extraordinary raconteur and wit.

Openly gay as early as the 1930s, Quentin spent decades being beaten up on London’s streets for his refusal to be anything less than himself. His courage, and the powerful philosophy that evolved from those experiences, inspire to the present day.

This much-acclaimed solo play, starring Mark Farrelly, shows Quentin in his beloved Chelsea flat in the 1960s, and in his final years in his adopted New York.

Naked Hope is a gloriously uplifting salute to a true one-off, and a timely reminder of the urgent necessity to live every day as your real self...no matter what they say.

Farrelly’s mastery of his audience is total. Brilliant. ★★★★ Time Out

Age recommendation: 12 years+

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

Shylock
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
The tragic, funny and often unbelievable life of fiction's most famous jew.

Is Shylock, the Jewish money lender from The Merchant of Venice, a villain or victim?

Gareth Armstrong's award-winning solo play, performed by Rhodi Miles, confronts these Jewish stereotypes through the eyes of his only friend (and the only other Jewish man in the whole of Shakespeare) Tubal.

Promoted to centre stage from his minor role in The Merchant of Venice, he proves a born comic storyteller.

Celebrating the richness of Shakespeare's language and conjuring up a whole cast of characters from Portia to Pontius Pilate, from Romeo to Max Reinhardt, and from Barabbas to Richard Burbage, this dazzling, moving, often hilarious play is a fascinating exploration of Shylock and his people.

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

Medals maketh the man - Victoria Crosses and the soldiers who earned them
Venue: The Green Howards Museum
Time: 7pm to 8.30pm
A host of questions surrounding Britain’s highest award for gallantry will be covered in this talk.



The Green Howards were awarded 18 Victoria Crosses, but how are these valuable medals made, and by whom? What are they made from? What are the criteria governing the award of a VC? Has anyone ever earned more than one, or been stripped of their medal?


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

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, he has launched 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.

The Yorkshire Enlightenment
Venue: The Green Howards Museum
Time: 7pm to 8.30pm

Captain Cook was revealing the extent of the known world, aided by the work of John Harrison and his quest to solve the problem of Longitude.


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

Dear Diary
Venue: The Green Howards Museum
Time: 7pm to 8.30pm
Join the museum team for an entertaining and poignant evening of readings from some of the literature in our care.



It’s often difficult to meaningfully display examples of text within our museum cases so we thought we’d use this Museum Talk as an opportunity to make a feature of the written word.

Innermost thoughts, and insightful observations drawn from a range of memoirs, letters and diaries in the museum’s extensive collection of personal papers, plus some surprising entries from official records.


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

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.
