The Heron Theatre, Beetham -  the Theatre currently remains closed to protect the welfare and safety of our audiences, volunteers, performers and surrounding community during the continuing uncertainty of the spread of pandemic variants.  However, we are excited to announce that we are working towards reopening the theatre in Spring 2022 with a full programme of drama, music, film, and art. This will give an opportunity for proposed work on the building ventilation to be completed during the autumn, and ensure that the theatre complies with all the latest covid recommendations published over the coming months.

Acoustic show from internationally acclaimed singer songwriter - Kirk Brandon in the intimate setting of Arnside Sailing Club.

Kirk started his career in 1978 with punk band "The Pack". He rose to fame as the frontman of post-punk rock band "Theatre of Hate" in the early 1980s. Their 1982 album "Westworld" climbed to No 17 in the UK charts. 

Kirk went on to form "Spear of Destiny", releasing three Top 30 albums in 1980s. Their single "Never Take Me Alive" reached No 14 in 1987. Other well known tracks include "Liberator" and "So in Love with You". "Spear of Destiny" had a more melodic and less aggressive sound than "Theatre of Hate".

In later years he has performed in the punk supergroup, "Dead Men Walking", before reforming and touring with "Spear Of Destiny" in 2007 and 2008. 
Brandon continues to tour with "Spear of Destiny", "Dead Men Walking", "Theatre of Hate" and "The Pack".

Over the last 20 years, Kirk has produced a series of solo acoustic albums (Dutch Masters 1 to 5). With Sam Sansbury, he has brought out the "Cello Suites" albums, combining Sam's haunting cello playing with Kirk's vintage guitar and vocal sound.

'Jacaranda'  - 7.30 pm at the Arnside Educational Institute, Church Hill, Arnside, LA5 0DF
Pentabus and Theatre by the Lake, Keswick present a brilliant new drama from award-winning playwright Lorna French.

‘Sometimes it feels so exposing just walking in the village. I told Jimmy to ignore it at first, he tried to, but it’s isolating he said, eyes on you, not a word spoken. Even when you meet their eyes they don’t look away. Like they have a right to, like you’re a spectacle, an object.’

Olivia has recently moved into her grandfather’s farmhouse. She’s not local, but she knows her way around. Matty is a gamekeeper, but he doesn’t often tell anyone. He’s wary of newcomers. These unlikely strangers find themselves beside a stream on the longest night of the year.

Suitable for age 14+.
The performance length is approx. 70 minutes. There will be NO interval.

Tickets: £12*
*Pentabus is offering free tickets for people under the age of 25 (limited availability)

Arnside Sailing Club Music Nights - 8pm at the Old Customs House, Promenade, Arnside 'Carolyn Francis and Mike Willoughby from Striding Edge (Folk)'

Mike Willoughby and Carolyn Francis have played Cumbrian traditional and Roots music together as half of Striding Edge, the legendary Cumbrian ceilidh band, for almost a quarter of a century. www.striding-edge.org 
Tonight they will perform separate solo sets, followed by old favourites and new material, as a duo.

Mike’s passionate songs take in a swathe of topics from Northern cultural roots to current ecological issues. There are also deep meditations on the landscape and the meaning that poetry and song have in our lives. 
His articulate vocals are complemented by his jangling bouzouki and infectious melodies from his melodeon and harmonica.
Carolyn is currently consolidating her 23 years of work with the “Lakeland Fiddlers” www.facebook.com/LakelandFiddler1 
through developing a solo show of poems, songs and tunes using a loop pedal to layer harmonies and textures, so creating a soundscape reflective of this environment we know, love, and work within.

They will be returning in early 2022 to premier their new show “Roots Down” with the full band.

Tickets:  £6 (members free)

'Larks and Magic' - 7.30pm Arnside Educational Institute, Church Hill, Arnside, LA5 0DF
Brought to Arnside by the Highlights North rural touring scheme.

Alison Neil (enchanting performer, award-winning playwright and Highlights regular), tells the story of 'The Railway Children' author, Edith Nesbit, in the latest of her entertaining one-woman shows about amazing women from history.

Quixotic, charming and maddening, Edith’s bohemian private life was jaw-dropping, even by modern standards. She knew everyone: G B Shaw, H G Wells, E M Forster, Noel Coward; was a founding member of the Fabian Society; and wrote a staggering quantity of books, short stories and poetry.

'Larks and Magic' tells the story of her struggle to keep her strange family above water, without losing her zest for life or sense of humour, and provides a dazzling glimpse into a tempestuous, joyful, brilliant and extraordinary life.

One audience member said ‘I was transported to another age and another time as you brought Nesbit alive for me’.

The performance length is approx. 60 minutes.
There will be NO interval, but, after the performance there will be a short break followed by Q&A.

Tickets: Adult - £10*, Child £5
* 2 for 1 ticket offer available for 16-35 year olds
