Hebden Bridge Arts Festival 2010

Thursday, 8 July

Dominic BruntHebden Shorts

Little Theatre, Holme Street, Hebden Bridge
7.30pm to 9.30pm

First Night Special
- Pay What You Want

Six successful writers based in Hebden Bridge experiment with writing short plays for the theatre. Fantastically varied in tone, style and subject matter these pieces pack more wit, drama, and energy into fifteen minutes than most full-length West End pieces can manage. Featuring a full professional cast – including some very famous faces – Hebden Shorts shows the surprising things that can happen when novelists, TV writers and radio dramatists get the chance to work with live performance.

Hebden Shorts will also be performed on Friday July 9 and Saturday July 10 at 7.30 pm. Tickets £10 (£8)

Eduardo Niebla Quartet

A formidable flamenco-jazz guitar virtuoso, Eduardo Niebla is a master of today’s generation; technically superb, breathtakingly versatile, supernaturally talented.

Inspired by tours to India, the Middle East and his adopted Yorkshire homeland, Eduardo presents his stunning new album and compositions from his acclaimed 30 year career - intricately brilliant, passionate flamenco infused with a myriad of Eastern colours and a Gypsy-jazz edge. Accompanied by his brilliant quartet, this is an amazing opportunity to hear world class guitar playing at its very best.

Presented in association with HX7 Jazz Club.

‘An imaginative and stimulating instrumental set in which flamenco is infused with classical Indian music and a contemporary jazz edge... top-class playing and beautiful theme’.
