2 shows, one at 7pm the next at 9pm.
This is the producer’s blurb:
Join Hull Urban Opera for a unique opportunity to experience Erik Satie’s hauntingly beautiful one-woman opera “Socrates” led by mindfulness expert Jim Rogers and sung by Hull-born soprano Poppy Shotts. The performance includes mindfulness, meditation and sensory prompts such as sounds and smells to powerfully experience a woman’s journey from the shock of sudden loss to acceptance and peace. You won’t have experienced a piece of music-theatre quite like this.

The Beverley Folk Fringe Festival comes to the Memorial Hall, Saturday 16th June 2018, Doors open 7 pm. Dan Webster & Very Special Guests, including, Polly Bolton & Bella Gaffney, Jack Parker, Katie Spencer.
Dan Webster says “We were really sad about the demise of the Beverley Folk Festival this year. We were particularly looking forward to our main stage support for festival headliners.
The news that ticket holders were not going to be refunded we felt couldn’t be just left uncompensated so we’ve hired the Memorial Hall in Beverley and if you have a ticket to the Beverley Folk Festival you can attend this event for free. Joining The Dan Webster Band on the bill for this show are the fantastic Bella Gaffney and Polly Bolton, Jack Parker and Katie Spencer who were all due to be playing the festival this year.
If you have a ticket for the Beverley Folk Festival simply present it or proof you purchased one on the door.
Dan Webster is described as ‘one of the the U.K’s best kept musical secrets and one not to miss!’. According to Americana UK – ‘He is the missing link, the joining point, where folk fuses with country – as good as you’ll hear on any record out of Austin or Nashville – beautiful – he is Anglicana’. Dan is a road seasoned English singer-songwriter, his music is influenced by sounds and story telling traditions of American and British Folk music, which he uniquely blends into his own distinct sound.
Bella Gaffney Folk and acoustic singer Bella Gaffney writes folk inspired songs which she performs along with her own original arrangements of traditional pieces.
She started her acoustic music career several years ago at the Topic Folk Club. Her songwriting is influenced by lyrical songwriters as well as those with strong narratives, artists as diverse as Richard Thompson, Jez Lowe, Billy Bragg, Jack Savoretti, Roger Davies and Michelle Shocked
Polly Bolton Talented vocalist, singing a range of haunting, traditional ballads.
Katie Spencer Katie picked up her Dad’s guitar in December 2012, to stop it from collecting any more dust. Since her first union with the guitar, she has developed her own style, based on her eclectic music taste – an ever changing and infinite list at that! Growing up in Yorkshire and going to many folk festivals has nurtured Katie’s love for folk music, and has recently inspired her to begin writing her own material.
Saturday night is our musical party, blowing the lid off our folk theme – a big shindig for performers, audience, volunteers and the town of Beverley. A happy gathering that Norwegians would call folkefest (literally, ‘party people’).
Tickets (£15) available OnLine HERE or by Phone 01482 874050
or In Person from The East Riding Theatre, Lord Roberts Road, Beverley.
The music begins at 7.30pm with an informally presented concert of folk- and dance-inspired music given by the New Paths artists, who include some outstanding folk musicians. The stunning programme ranges from energetic Argentinian tango, to haunting folksong of the British Isles, and traditional music from Scandinavia. Benjamin Rimmer’s recent Rise for harp and string quartet is dreamy and magical, whilst the top-hit toe-tapping Danish music Woodworks will have you itching to dance!
And so at 8.30pm we push back the chairs, get out the hay bales, and hand over to Triple Scotch, feted as the finest Ceilidh band in the UK, for two hours of solid barn dancing. Do-si-do!
Doors open at 6:45pm.
