Remember Littondale Fete will be held on the village green in Arncliffe on Saturday 8th August from 1pm.

There will be the usual attractions for all the family to enjoy including Skipton Brass Band, tea and scrumptious cakes, yummy hotdogs and lots of fun stuff to watch and take part in – the Fell Races and our Road Race (supported by Leeds City Athletics Club), the Littondale ‘4′ returns this year.

On a gentler note, the children’s Fancy Dress takes the theme: Heroes and Heroines and there will be the usual children’s races to have a go at. There’s still plenty of time to work on your muscles and technique to enter the Strong Man or Woman Challenges on the day… Look out for the Second Guess in the pubs, have a guess at the seconds of the best time for the Strong Man Challenge.

The Settlement

The Settlement

Thursday 14th May at 7.30pm.

We will be screening The Settlement on Thursday 14th May at 7.30pm in Amerdale Hall. This second major film by local film maker, Geoff Kerr, focusses on the history of Grassington and the people who have settled there over the last 12000 years. With local historian, Cynthia Colley, Geoff has put together an entertaining and informative documentary that travels from the last ice age to the present discussing among other things, the geology and archaeology of this beautiful part area along with sections on mediaeval and early industrial periods of our history. On the darker side there is a dramatised account of the true story of Grassington’s infamous murderer, Tom Lee.

A Month in the Country – Nobby Dimon and North Country Theatre

Thursday 23rd October at 7.30pm.

Adapted from the novel by JL Carr, and directed by Nobby Dimon this haunting evocation of a past time seems fitting in this first year of the First World War commemorations.

Two men, an artist and an archaeologist, recently returned from the horrors of the trenches, find themselves working side by side in a North Yorkshire village church. What they slowly uncover is an ancient village mystery, hidden passions and the healing power of a month in the country.

This prize winning novel was made into a film with Colin Firth and Kenneth Branagh in the starring roles. In 2014 by kind permission of the estate of the late J L Carr, North Country Theatre will be reviving their 2002 production which was the first stage adaption of this moving story.

A Month in the Country is a story of a fondly remembered rural past , a story of love, loss and recovery.

Though we can’t promise you Colin Firth and Kenneth Branagh you know that with North Country Theatre there’ll be wit, invention and imagination as this moving story comes to life on stage.

Adult – £10

Under 16 – £5.00
