Book NowThis is a high-flying combination: a singer/ songwriter extraordinaire, a superb traditional singer and one of the folk scene’s most sought-after instrumentalists. Pete, Maggie & Chris all excel in their own departments. Together they deliver a richly textured collection of vibrant new songs, beautiful old songs and stunning instrumentals – plus all three voices in three-part harmony... and they have a great time doing it. Superb acoustic music!

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 Thursday 8 July is Pay What You Want and tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis on the door on the night. Doors will open at 7pm. Tickets £10 (£8)
