Memories and Melodies at the Victoria Theatre

From Neil Hurst
Each christmas I take the role of the comic in the Halifax Victoria Theatre pantomime and while having a conversation with the management I became aware that the theatre actually doesn’t provide anything for older, retired audiences and one of the main forms of entertainment requested by the audiences is something for older people who don’t want to go to the theatre at night but want some sort of entertainment during the day. So along with the Victoria Theatre we got our heads together and will be presenting the first of what will hopefully be many, matinee shows for retired and older audiences. the show is called MEMORIES AND MELODIES and is going to be starring TV Comedian JIMMY CRICKET, i will be hosting and we have a full company of other variety acts including Sam Lane, comedy magician and 2009 Britain’s Got Talent Semi Finalist.
MEMORIES AND MELODIES
THE VICTORIA THEATRE, HALIFAX
WEDNESDAY 25th MARCH 2015 – 2.00pm
BOX OFFICE – 01422 351158
Tickets are £14.50 but we have a group deal if bringing more than 10, making each seat just £12.50 and free seats for carers. The theatre also has excellent disabled access and plenty of wheelchair spaces.
Like i said, if it is successful, this will be the first of what we hope will be many matinee shows for retired audiences in Calderdale, hopefully providing something for local older audiences who do not want to go out on an evening.

Fruit Tree Planting at Blackshaw Head

Planting of fruit trees on the land belonging to Carol & Garry King will take place on Sunday 1st March at 10am. Anyone is welcome to come and give a hand for an hour. Children are welcome too if supervised by an adult.
You can walk to the site from the New Delight Inn (Newdy) in less than five minutes. Just go along the road next to the red telephone box at Jack Bridge, which runs along the stream uphill.
If you have not planted trees before there will be people present to show you how to do it. BEAT is covered by an insurance policy. If you do not know where the site is go to the New Delight Inn and walk from there as it will only take a few minutes to walk to the site along the stream where the red telephone box is.
If you have a spade or can borrow one please bring it along. Do not worry if you cannot bring a spade as we have spare ones. If you do not like digging you can put newspapers around the planted trees with a hessian mat on top to act as mulching. You are also welcome to bring newspapers and magazines on 1st March – even if you cannot participate in the activities.
If the site is covered by heavy snow on the day we will postpone the tree planting. If you want to check in advance email finn.jensen@rocketmail.com or phone 01422 846863.
After the tree planting BEAT will be providing vegan soup with bread and a drink (beer, wine, tea, coffee, hot chocolate or juice) at the New Delight as a thank you and to warm you up again. This will also give you a chance to ask questions to experienced fruit growers if you are considering planting fruit trees and bushes in your garden.
Once the community orchard provides fruit, members of the community can help themselves to fruit but only for their personal use. Surplus will be given to the food bank in Todmorden and to Great Rock Coop
