On Saturday 18 November, 8pm, it's Strange Face - Adventures With A Lost Nick Drake Recording. Writer /performer, Michael Burdett discovered the recording in a skip in the 1970s and some 30 years later decided to share it in an extraordinary way. The result is a quirky, funny and poignant award-winning solo show, a celebration of life, coincidences and the legacy of singer-songwriter Nick Drake. “Gorgeous one-man show’ The Times **** £10 adv / £12 otd.

On Sunday 19 November 7.30pm, 21 amazing local singers in Miscast Concert – Right Song Wrong Singer! Working with award-winning Director, Anita Adams, on fabulous West End and Broadway songs, the twist is, everyone is miscast… the result an hilarious and moving concert! £9 adv / £10 otd

Celebrating Leeds Gathering, this week's Screen Seven movie on Monday 20 November, 8pm, is The Journey, a what-if drama about the extraordinary rapprochement between two old enemies – the DUP’s Ian Paisley and Sinn Féin’s Martin McGuinness. Set within the Northern Ireland peace process, the film imagines that Paisley had to make a long car journey to get to his 50th wedding anniversary party and for reasons of diplomatic protocol, McGuinness travelled with him.

On Tuesday 21 November, 8pm, it is Café Scientifique - Antibiotic Resistance. Lars Jeuken and Jonathan Sandoe will discuss antimicrobial resistance (AMR), how it comes about, the difficulties of diagnosing infections and how their current research might help to reduce prescriptions of antimicrobials.  Hat donations.

On Wednesday 23 November, 7.45pm, a great concert from JazzLeeds – Arun Ghosh Quintet. Using the spirit and language of jazz, with Hip-Hop, Indian Classical and Folk, Western Classical, Rock, Pop and Avant-garde, Ghosh's music is full of lyrical melodies and searching harmonies. With support from the Fruit Tree Collective.  £16 / £14 conc. Doors 7.30pm

Also part of  Leeds Gathering on Friday 24 November, 7.30pm, it is Cronin with Songs of Shane McGowan. Leeds/Irish brothers Cronin play a special show for Leeds Gathering. Two sets, one of their own songs and one the songs of Ireland’s finest legendary songwriter, Shane MacGowan. £10 on the door.

Rounding off the week, Saturday 25 November, 8.30pm, what promises to be another excellent  TumbleweedAmericana - The Way Down Wanderers. Equal parts fast-paced and soulful, 5-piece modern-folk Americana act, the Wanderers combine folk with boy-band appeal: a quintet with gorgeous vocals, instrumentals, some dreads and a whole bunch of youthful energy. £11 adv / £13 otd.  Doors 8pm.

Tickets for most events are found at  www.ticketsource.co.uk/sevenleeds/events Where not sold out, tickets are always available on the door.

Every £ spent at Seven helps support high quality arts in a local setting. We look forward to seeing you at Seven very soon.

Creative Kirklees Newsletter November 2017


We’re back!!  We have had some technical issues with our email recently which has meant that the Newsletter has not been sent out for a few weeks.  Hopefully this is all sorted now and you should receive the newsletter again weekly as normal but from a slightly different email address - arts.creativity@creativekirklees.com.  We are sorry for disappearing!

This week’s newsletter has to highlight the 40th edition of the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (hcmf//) which starts on Friday 17 until Sunday 26 November.  The festival offers a packed programme of concerts, talks, workshops and family events taking place at venues across the town centre.  The festival dates back to 1978 and you can look back on all the programme covers here http://bit.ly/hcmfProgrammeCovers - which one is your favourite?
Also around are lots of Christmas Fairs to visit where you can stock up on stocking fillers or join in one of the festive Workshops where you can have a go at making your own! 
As always, the district is crammed with creative activities for you to enjoy so take a look through the What's On section on the Creative Kirklees website..
