ArtERY gets off to a harmonious start!

Pacific Curls

Live music, drama and adventure are coming your way if you live in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Rural touring programme ArtERY is just about to burst into life. This means that between October 2014 and May 2015, we will welcome nine professional companies and artists to the area, starting with a blistering performance from musicians, ‘Pacific Curls.’

Pacific Curls is a world-class band made up of talented musicians: Kim Halliday (Rotuman NZ Scottish) Ora Barlow (Whānau-a-Apanui, English) and Sarah Beattie (Scottish).

Between them, they have managed to fuse together their indigenous roots to create an entirely new and unique sound and have managed to accumulate an impressive instrumental collection along the way!

This includes ukuleles, cajon, fiddle, Taonga Puoro – traditional Māori instruments, guitar, stomp box, kalimba, various percussive instruments and vocals with lyrics in Te Reo Māori, Rotuman and English.

But don’t just take our word for how good they are. Have a listen to them here, click on the video (and weep)!

This is a family friendly event and their  music will appeal to all ages. For more information visit

Two Gents Productions

Following hot on the heels of these talented musicians is an unusual take on a Shakespearean comedy.

Two Gents Productions is a London-based cross cultural touring company whose innovative take on Shakespeare has bowled over audiences across the country.

Their production of The Taming of the Shrew will be shown in Bridlington, North Newbald and Swanland this October.

The production is “Uproariously entertaining,” according to The Guardian.

With only two actors on a bare stage, Two Gents bring the play to life, tackling the classic war of the sexes.
Is Petrucchio’s ‘taming’ of Kate an act of love, of violent submission, or (perhaps more controversially) both? Come along and find out for yourself.

The play is suitable for all ages and ethnicities. For more information go to Or to see them in action, click on the video.
