Ireby Festival 2016: Fri, 27 May 2016 until Sat, 28 May 2016

With a range of music to suit most tastes, performed in small intimate venues and a main stage restricted to just 600 people, Ireby festival presents an unforgettable and unique atmosphere and is considered among the best for those with a real love for live music. This is the festival’s 14th year and it has developed a reputation for selling out early, so be sure to react fast to be part of one of the last festivals where the actual love for music and one another is still the main point of focus.

The Vertical Hour : Fri, 27 May 2016 until Sat, 28 May 2016

Theatre by the Lake
Nadia Blye, an American war reporter turned Yale professor, has seen the horror of war up close. Advising President Bush as an advocate for ‘humane intervention’ in Iraq, she’s more than used to defending her divisive opinions. But one weekend in the Shropshire countryside she meets Oliver. He’s caustic, vehemently liberal, ferociously intelligent, an inveterate womaniser and the father of her boyfriend. He can’t resist taking her to task and the two soon lock horns in an intellectual debate that will have far-reaching consequences for them all. Personal philosophies are pitted against global politics, idealism clashes with realism and cynicism challenges moral obligation. But who is right? This gripping and moving play, by one of Britain’s finest playwrights, will challenge, enthral and pitch you into passionate discussion all the way home.

Watch It, Sailor!: Fri, 27 May 2016 until Sat, 28 May 2016

Theatre by the Lake
A family wedding-day should be a time for celebration, but not in the Hornett household. The bride has already been left waiting at the altar once that morning and the sailor bridegroom is about to receive a telegram that will change everything.

For anyone who met the characters first time around in Sailor, Beware! join us for the next episode, but this rollicking northern comedy is also the perfect introduction to the loveable, eccentric and thoroughly hilarious characters that make up the Hornett family as they battle to get to the church on time.

Threlkeld Village Hall
On 8th June 1924, George Mallory, Britain’s leading climber, and Andrew Irvine, a young powerful oarsman, vanished into the mist on their final push toward the unconquered summit of Everest. They were never seen alive again and passed into mountaineering legend. The mystery of what happened to them remains one of the most compelling questions in world exploration. Did they get to the top almost 30 years before Hillary and Tenzing? We will probably never know the answers to this question, but the story remains compelling. John Burns is a writer and mountaineer living in Scotland. He admits to being fascinated by these two men and has written a one-man play about George Mallory and his three attempts to climb what he referred to simply as The Mountain.
