The Ritz Cinema

Thirsk's volunteer-run Ritz Cinema will have subtitles on its films at Sunday evening showings. This starts with Operation Mincemeat on Sun 15 May.

Hopefully subtitles will be useful for film-goers who have difficulty hearing the soundtracks.

In another initiative, the takings at the showings of Downton Abbey: A New Era on Sat 28 and Sun 29 May will be donated to the Red Cross in support of the Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

See the listings in the What's On section for film details.

Thirsk Hall Festival

Blog image

A Carnival, Mozart, Folk, Poetry, Samba and a live orchestra to film – the organisers of Thirsk Hall Festival are delighted to announce this year’s exciting performances.

Starting on Fri 19 Aug at St Mary’s Church (next to Thirsk Hall), Heritage Opera Director, Sarah Helsby-Hughes will direct Marriage of Figaro. Festival organiser Benjamin Ellin will conduct Mozart’s comedy classic, a unique production uniting leading professional singers and instrumentalists alongside a festival chorus from members of the local region.

On Sat 20 Aug there will be a Carnival themed day in the grounds at Thirsk Hall, free for under 16s. There will be live performances, fairground rides and food stalls. Two performances of Roald Dahl’s Little Red Riding Hood will take place in the Sculpture Garden’s newly renovated gallery and there will be Samba workshop and parade for everyone to join. In the evening, audiences will enjoy a journey through the world of folk music, from across the Tudor period up to traditional folk. There will be food & drink as well as a space to dance.

Closing the Festival on Sun 21 Aug at The Ritz Cinema, there will be Film & Orchestra – Charlie Chaplin’s ‘A Dogs Life’ and a selection of new short films by students of the acclaimed National Film and Television School will be accompanied by live 13-piece orchestra, conducted by Benjamin Ellin.
