ArtERY Live – Sparkling events planned for Spring!

During these dark, cold months everyone needs to plan ahead to brighter times. Which is why we have some high- energy performances lined up for ArtERY Live this Spring. 

Our fun-packed menu is more diverse than ever, with music, cabaret, comedy and special performances planned.

First up, is  Theatre Company  Gonzo Moose – The Thing That Came From Over There – a ’rip-roaring’ comedy adventure. Inspired by the Horror movies of the 1950’s, The Thing That Came From Over There is a fast-paced performance, mixing paranoia, suspense and hilariously gruesome deaths.  It’s 1912, and a meteor has crashed in Antarctica. The whole of planet earth is endangered. What ancient evil lurks inside the crater? What is the dark secret of the slimy fungus? And what is the horrifying fate of those who encounter the parasitic space worms?

Join us and find out. The show is full of shocks, spine tingling silliness, and blood curdling terror. It will appear at Lund Village Hall on Saturday, March, 3, 7.30pm. Tickets 01377 217776.

ShooShoo Baby will have you bent double with The Great Cabaret Safari act. Not only is this show hilariously funny, it’s also full of great musicianship, with much-loved songs from composers as diverse as Verdi, The Proclaimers, Cole Porter and Queen. The group has impressed audiences all over the world with the quality of their singing and have performed on ice, jumped out of cakes and even entertained on stilts before royalty, oligarchs and pop stars .

They will appear at two venues, St Nicholas Community Centre, Beverley, Fri, April 20, 7.30pm Tele 07806 697487 and Bishop Burton Village Hall, Sat 21 April, 8pm, Tickets 01964 552364.

Tayo Aluko & Friends will be at Swanland Village Hall on Sat, April 28, (tickets 01482 634863) and North Dalton Village Hall on Sun, May 20, at 7.30pm (tickets 01377 217523) with  Call Mr Robeson – a Life with Songs. Paul Robeson is a world-famous actor, singer and civil rights campaigner. When he gets too radical and outspoken for the establishment’s liking, he is branded a traitor to his country, is harassed, and denied opportunities to perform or travel. This roller-coaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable life highlights how his political activism led many to describe him as the forerunner of the civil rights movement. It features some famous songs (including a dramatic rendition of Ol’ Man River), speeches, and a spectacularly defiant testimony to the Senate House Un-American Activities Committee.

And finally, Birkett and Fisk will delight audiences at Swanland Village Hall, on Saturday, May 12, 7.30pm (tickets 01482 634863) and Bishop Burton Village Hall on Sunday June 10 (tickets 01964 552364) . If you enjoy live music, this is the show for you. Bringing together their shared knowledge and love of early jazz styles, Emma Fisk and James Birkett present an entertaining mix of jazz violin and guitar. A typical performance includes  compositions by Venuti/Lang such as Cheese & Crackers, Sunshine and Black and Blue Bottom; jazz standards of the 20s and 30s; and specially composed originals that explore the duo’s soundworld.
