Save the date for two popular events later in the Hull UK City of Culture year

Let the good times roll

A brand new version of That’ll Be the Day returns to Hull City Hall in October. This show has been touring for three decades, a feat in itself, and is rated by many as the UK’s number one rock ‘n’ roll variety production. The show is highly acclaimed for its stunning live entertainment value and is described as an outstanding celebration for all true fans of the golden era of popular music.

This latest production features a new line-up of smash hits songs from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s guaranteed to stir those dancehall memories, all performed live on stage.

Originally established on the cabaret circuit in the late 1980s, That’ll Be the Day began playing regional theatres in the early 1990s. Now it performs more than 200 shows a year to capacity audiences across the UK.

Trevor Payne, who first created the show back in 1986, still directs, produces and stars in the production today. He spends at least six months planning and preparing each new show every year to create an unforgettable night of nostalgia, laughs and rock ‘n’ roll.

Tickets for That’ll Be the Day at Hull City Hall on Tuesday, October 24th are from £23.50 and are on sale now.

Fifteen years ago beacons of cultivated retailing did exist in Haworth, but they were outnumbered by purveyors of Brontë souvenirs of sometimes questionable taste. Today that precipitous street is a hub of stylish and artistic shops, the latter in particular often drawing upon local artists and craftspeople. ‘It used to be mainly souvenir shops selling “a thimble from Haworth”,’ says painter George Bowden, who with his wife Sarah opened the tiny gallery Wuthering Arts last year. ‘Haworth has come late to the party compared to Hebden Bridge, but we’re getting there, with a number of art-led enterprises on Main Street, and more on the way – a friend has bought what was the Edinburgh Woollen Mill, an old weaving shed, and that’s going to be a huge gallery.’
