The Virginia Monologues

Virginia Ironside

Virginia IronsideLittle Theatre,
Holme Street, Hebden Bridge
8.00pm to 9.00pm
£8 (£6)

While everyone around her is moaning about the miseries of old age, Virginia Ironside, one of the nation’s top agony aunts, finds that her sixties are the happiest time of her life. Join her in this Edinburgh Festival preview directed by Nigel Planer as she takes an off-beat, touching and wry look at the pleasures of the Third Age.

Virginia will be signing books after the performance.

The Festival would like to thank Virginia for donating her fee to the Festival.

Hangingroyd Lane, Hebden Bridge
9.00pm to 10.30pm

An exciting blend of violin, clarinet/sax, accordion and mandolin teams up with guitar, bass and drums forming Klonk, a six-piece world-music ensemble based in West Yorkshire, dishing up a reliable meze of hot footstomping klezmer, bitter-sweet Middle Eastern laments and the odd spicy tango. ‘Beautiful contrapuntal folk . . . the real thing’
