Meet the Fitzgeralds – a family group consisting of fiddling and step dancing sensations Tom, Kerry & Julie Fitzgerald.  These siblings, from Canada’s renowned Ottawa Valley, have come a long way from their small town roots. Featuring 3-time Canadian Grandmaster Fiddle Champions and Ontario Open Step Dance Champions, this unique act features high-energy fiddling and mind-blowing step dancing.  It is the rare combination of exceptional musicianship, incomparable dancing, audience interaction, love of performing and genuine sibling connection that resonates with audiences of all ages and sets this group apart.


The Fitzgeralds are some of the most talented, energetic, animated, and genuine performers you will come across.  This is a group of entertainers who truly love what they are doing and thrive on interaction with their audiences.


Target audience: 1 to 100!


This is one energetic and entertaining family! Guaranteed to burn calories just watching this show!  No group has generated as much curiosity, compelling our audience to return for a second set, as the Ottawa Valley style dancers that Julie Fitzgerald so excels at.  The warmth, energy and enthusiasm has hooked generations from young to senior, then the talent lets loose – pure vibrant magic.

SOLD OUT!!! DOUBLE BILL!! Beverley musician, Simon Davey meets young Canadian dance company, Les Bordeliques on a Blind Date!

Simon Davey


Beverley musician Simon Davey has been playing folk music of some sort another for over forty years.  On guitar, whistles and flute he works as a solo musician and has also fronted Inertia Reel in his native Manchester and Cunla since moving to East Yorkshire in the early 90s .  His work is drawn from the traditions of the British Isles, from contemporary heroes such as Richard Thomson and the late John Martyn and from his own pen.  Two albums, The Set and Set Free have proved popular with his audiences and represent the wide range of his work.  He continues working alone and playing with his friends Paul Blackburn, Brian Swinton and Nick Rooke in his adopted home of Beverley.



Blind Date!


Would YOU go on a blind date? The trials and tribulations of the dating game will be explored in a fun production from young Canadian company Les Bordéliques.  A night of laughter and awe is promised as they examine the awkwardness of seduction and the potential for almighty clashes between three couples who have never met before. 


With a script whose characters include Pretentious, Neurotic, Rebel and Femme Fatale as well as Romantic and Shy, what could possibly go wrong?  The show, performed by two ex Cirque du Soleil performers, is a real mix, using stilts, high heels, classical violin and contemporary music as well as dance and a healthy dose of comedy to bring the story to life.

Panta Rai Danseteatre I WISH HER WELL




          I Wish Her Well


                 Panta Rai Danseteatre


             SUNDAY 9 OCTOBER 7 PM







Four women, a collection of stories, a handful of hourglasses and a huge mirror, I Wish Her Well tells simple stories of everyday events that are universally meaningful, but nonetheless remain invisible when official history is written.


I Wish Her Well is an intricate performance, combining storytelling, high tempo energy and an evocative sound score by British composer Nathaniel Reed that infuses the performance with melody and atmosphere. It is a captivating production that seeks to move and engage. Act one is based on the stories of four women who are closely related to the dancers, whilst act two is based on the diaries of a 16 year-old girl. She is now an 85 year-old woman who generously shared her thoughts and experiences with the choreographers and dancers. The production period took place in Norway, Sweden and Tanzania, culminating in a premiere performance for CODA Oslo International Dance Festival’s 10th anniversary at the Dance House, Oslo, in 2012. The performance has continued on tour in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, England, Zimbabwe and Tanzania. 


“Strong, physical, fast, beautiful, precise storytelling, thought-provoking and very beautiful."

Sunday’s Child


Monday 2 May 7.30pm Beverley, St Nicholas Community Centre HU17 0PY
Saoirse lives in a peach coloured bungalow with her Da and big brother Brendan. Her best friend is Siobhán, who has a glorious fountain of ginger hair, a whisper like a foghorn and distracts all the men at mass. Saoirse prefers running through fields to chasing after boys, but her best friend has other ideas. After a night out drinking with the lads, Saoirse discovers her pregnancy and is forced to set out on a journey that will take her miles away from her home and the carefree adolescence she once knew. My Name is Saoirse is an award-winning one woman show, set in 1980s rural Ireland.  Described as “humorous and heart-warming,” the piece is a tender and moving coming of age story that follows Saoirse, an ordinary, extraordinary 15 year old growing up in conservative Catholic Ireland.
To set the scene, local musician Simon Davey will play a short set of Irish folk music.
Bar opens at 7pm.
Presented by the BEVERLEY ARTS TRUST as part of the ARTERY LIVE Spring 2016 season.
