Theatre Tour & Tea
York was the largest Roman town in northern England, and the site of York Theatre Royal fell within the city walls, an original section can be seen across the road. Through the medieval period, the site was used as a hospital and for the site of a mint – a theatre was built in 1744, and has been producing and displaying work ever since. Come and join us to find out more about the fascinating history of theatre in York and learn why there is a Georgian folly backstage, why a stage is called a deck and why you should never whistle in a theatre. Our expert tour guides will lead you on a 75 minute tour of the whole theatre site, before tea and scones are served in our upper foyer. Please note that due to the number of stairs involved on the tour, it is not currently possible to accommodate customers with impaired mobility. Tours 10.30am Saturday and 3.00pm Friday.

Turner: Northern Exposure at the Mercer Art Gallery
The varied Yorkshire landscape inspired Turner to explore deeply Romantic architectural subjects, including Kirkstall Abbey and Bolton Abbey, where he uniquely captured both the last glimmers of sunlight and the first hints of a sublime harvest moonlight through the ruins. He sketched Scarborough Castle on the Yorkshire coast from every angle and in various shades of light and weather too, honing the skill that was to influence his whole career and which introduced him to special Yorkshire places that were to occupy his imagination for decades.

Pride & Prejudice* (*Sort Of)
This is an adaptation like no other. Drawing on over two-hundred years of romantic pop history is Blood of the Young’s unique take on a beloved novel – the hugely acclaimed Pride and Prejudice* (*Sort Of). Six young women have a story to tell. You might have seen them, emptying the chamber pots and sweeping ash from the grate; the overlooked and the undervalued making sure those above stairs find their happy ending. Of course, they’ve always been running the show – after all ‘You can’t have a whirlwind romance without clean bedding’ – but tonight, the servants are also playing every part.

Encounters with Jesus by Ali Thistlethwaite
Secret transactions with God in prayer have life-changing consequences. Within worship and prayer, sorrow can be turned to joy, tension to peace. Alison Thistlethwaite’s paintings aim to capture some of this process in paint. Her paintings are not just depictions, or recollections, of encounters with God through the Spirit. They are themselves painted in encounter with God, much like the prayers of any one of us, but in physical form.

Art Happens Here
This exhibition brings together the work of a recently formed collective of artists working at Community House in Malton, a building they have transformed into artists’ studios. For this exhibition each artist presents an element of their current practice. How do these individual practices overlap or speak to each other, as practitioners share a building to develop their work? The artists highlight the need to work within a supportive creative arena where values and interests can be discussed and nurtured.
