Talk on the Floorboard Finds

22 Jul 2024

14:30 - 15:30

East Riddlesden Hall

Join Mark Newman, the National Trust’s archaeologist for East Riddlesden Hall, for an exploration of the exciting and unexpected worlds that lie hidden under the floor of National Trust houses.

Thanks to causes ranging from rats to lazy builders, objects get hidden and dropped into the voids beneath our floorboards. When carefully collected and recovered by archaeologists like Mark, they can tell an amazing array of stories of how rooms were used and lived in in the past. Two of the rooms at East Riddlesden have been explored in this way, revealing over a thousand objects ranging in date from medieval times to the 1980s. Drawing on these finds and those from other NT Yorkshire properties, Mark will explain how we can read these often overlooked shadows of the past.

And if you’ve got something intriguing you’ve found in your hose or garden, and don’t know what it is, do bring it along and quiz him about it.

It's free to attend the talk, normal admission does apply. Free entry for National Trust members and under fives.

We are very excited to be ending our season with the first ever visit to the UK of the internationally famous Buenos Aires Symphony Orchestra of Colón Opera.

We are very pleased to welcome the brilliant German National Orchestra, featuring the very best young players performing in Germany.

They will be conducted by the all-round phenomenon Wayne Marshall who will also be soloist in the sensational blend of jazz and classical music in Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. The concert will begin with Benjamin Britten’s much loved Young Persons Guide to the Orchestra, with its rousing finale, and then the second half of the programme will feature a performance of one of the most popular works ever composed by a British composer – Gustav Holst’s The Planets with its ominous, tantalising rhythms of Mars, the beauty of Venus, the grandeur of Jupiter and the mysterious ethereal music describing Neptune that finishes the work. This concert, highlighting three of the most popular pieces of music ever composed, is not to be missed.

Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra & Bradford Festival Choral Society

29 Mar 2025

19:30

St George’s Hall

Bradford Festival Choral Society, in collaboration with the Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra, presents a dramatic and diverse concert - promising to captivate audiences with its blend of contemporary and classical masterpieces.

The concert opens with the first Northern performance of Reena Esmail's This Love Between Us: A Prayer for Unity, a captivating work bridging Indian and Western musical traditions. The music weaves a rich tapestry uniting two different musical traditions. The chorus, orchestra and soloists are joined by sitar and tabla as sound worlds merge together.

Following the interval, the massed musical forces perform Carl Orff's iconic Carmina Burana. Packed with dramatic intensity, bold tunes and exhilarating percussion, Carmina Burana features the famous O Fortuna, a piece synonymous with epic soundscapes.

Together, these two works create an evening of profound emotional and musical contrasts, showcasing the talents of Bradford Festival Choral Society and the Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra. This concert is not only a celebration of diverse musical traditions but also a testament to the power of music to convey universal themes and connect people across cultures and centuries.

West Yorkshire Savoyards presents: Gilbert & Sullivan’s Ruddigore

28 Sep 2024

19:30

Bingley Arts Centre

The West Yorkshire Savoyards make a welcome return on September 28th with the Gilbert and Sullivan gothic melodrama, ‘Ruddigore’, not as well-known as some G&S operas, but arguably funnier and more tongue in cheek than ever.

Expect all the familiar G&S elements: terrific music, social satire, comic pathos -- but with a seasoning of sinister spectres! A family curse means a baronet must commit a crime every day or perish. In trying to escape his fate, he encounters dancing sailors, frustrated bridesmaids and a chorus of ghostly ancestors. What could possibly go wrong?!

Be prepared for laughs, thrills and fabulous music in this touring production directed by Graham Weston with professional orchestra conducted by Oliver Longstaff.'
