A brilliant ‘double bill’ of entertainment – two thematically linked plays in one evening!


Yorkshire Kernel written by Danny Mellor with music by Jez Lowe - performed by Richard Galloway


Yorkshire Kernel is a witty and fast paced theatrical journey where one actor takes on all the characters in this comic and nostalgic tale. James’s Grandad is at death’s door, but he has one last mission: to find a tree. Many trees in fact, scattered around the country in memory of his Second World War comrades. And James needs just one acorn to plant where his Grandad wishes to be laid to rest. Simple? You’d think so. But divided between being haunted by his plain-speaking grandfather, his mother rekindling her romance with an old flame, and James’s pregnant partner, Rosie, thinking he is cheating on her, Mellor’s “bonkers” solo show undertakes a journey of Yorkshire wit and grit through one man’s determination to leave a long-lasting legacy.


The Land Girl By Kate Bramley, with songs by Jez Lowe- performed by Ellen Carnazza


Inspired by actual stories of Yorkshire Land Army “Girls” collected by Kate Bramley back in 2009, this new one-woman performance showcases some of the highs and lows of working on the land during wartime. From ration books to rat-catching, acres of onions to the American Air Base dances, tap your feet and laugh along to songs and stories that capture the “can-do” spirit of the ladies who kept Britain fed during the hardships of World War II.


“if you get chance to see this show do, for it is an engaging and uplifting experience” – YORK PRESS.
