Come and hear the full entertaining story of how local writer Nevin Ward wrote the words and music for The Dam Play – the Story of Nidderdale’s Reservoirs and the People Who Built Them, and Gouthwaite Hall, a darker play about a colourful incident in early 17th century Nidderdale.
Both plays received high acclaim on their sold-out runs at the Pateley Bridge Playhouse.
"Congratulations on bringing a rich but seldom explored part of the area’s history to life, and for portraying it so well - I was highly impressed by the whole performance. “
Sir Thomas Ingilby, descendant of Sir William Ingilby
“We did enjoy the play - the acting was of a very high standard”
David Yorke, descendant of Sir John Yorke
Both their named ancestors were presented as characters in Gouthwaite Hall.
With home made light refreshments, the cost is £7.50 (members £6.00)
