Beech Tree War Memorial – Artist’s Sketch


An artist’s sketch has been received from Lukasz Beben and is shown below. Also shown is the proposed design of the plaque which it is intended will be at eye level in the centre of the carving. It is proposed that a meeting is called on Thursday 24th October at 7pm in the Reading Room to further discuss these designs and the further progress of this project.

Robinson Crusoe – Rehearsals

People may have been wondering what’s been going on with the North Country Theatre van being parked outside the Reading Room over the last couple of weeks.

It’s simply that the Reading Room is being used for rehearsals for a production of Crusoe’s Island by Fell-Foss Theatre who will be touring the region during the Autumn  under the North Country Theatre banner.

North Country Theatre specialised in taking professional theatre out into the country, touring to village halls, small theatres, arts centres, churches, auction marts, castles, railway waiting rooms, hotels, gardens, almost anywhere in fact. For over 20 years our productions generally toured in the Autumn entertaining over 5,000 people around the country. There were various Summer productions too, often out doors, including our community plays and Shakespear’s Twelfth Night as part of our 20th Anniversary celebrations.

If you’re interested in attending one of the performances – which commence on September 19th at Richmonds Georgian Theatre Royal – then there’s a full list on the Fell-Foss Theatre Web Page Here
