Summer Fringe – Thursday 18 August

Book your free place to this event here.

Our Summer Fringe is back! Come and watch local Yorkshire creatives perform in a range of artforms in the atmospheric courtyard of Ilkley Manor House, including poetry, music, comedy improv and spoken word. There will be five evenings of outdoor performances taking place on Thursdays from 6.30pm, running from 28 July to 25 August.

This evening we present:

Barbara Howerska, born in Bradford, celebrates diversity and local characters, telling the story of the changes, challenging perceptions with up front poetry.

Bring Me Sunshine Triois an Ilkley-based social enterprise using strings and song for well-being, playing a mix of classical, folk and popular music using string trio, voices, guitar and percussion.

Chalk and Cheese: Thought-provoking observations (mostly geological) or just plain silliness (with added cheesy rhymes). Two poets as different as Chalk and Cheese.

Please note, this event takes place outdoors and attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating. This event is also weather dependent and changes may be made to the programme line-up due to unforeseen circumstances. Please follow our social media for regular updates to the programme.
