NEWS 21/10/12

Hi all,

This is the news.


We have two big projects coming up in Otley this December.

First of all, on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th December, Otley Community Players will be presenting ARTHUR RANSOME'S WINTER HOLIDAY at the Courthouse Arts Centre. The popular children's novel has been adapted by Duncan and Nick; Nick is directing the production (and playing a couple of small parts) and the show will feature music and songs. Those who know Otley musicians might well recognise a few other familiar faces in the cast...

Tickets are priced at £7 (£5 concessions) and can be purchased here.

A couple of weeks later and we're back at the Courthouse again (by popular demand!) for a repeat of last year's 20th Anniversary Concert. This one's the 21st!

It's Saturday 22nd December. Tickets are £10 (£8 concessions) and go up a little if you wait to get them on the door (this is not recommended as it sold out in advance last year and tickets are already selling well). Get them here!

As with last year, the evening will start with a set from Plumhall, then Dave Vermond and finally The Hall Brothers & John Carey and a host of special guests. Ask anybody who was there last year - it was a great night and this one promises to be even better. What could be better for a Christmas night out?

2) CDs

The last physical copies of Songs From the Shore and Time & Tragedy have now been sent out (thanks for buying at Otley - should be with you by midweek!!) Although we are exploring the possibility of "print-on-demand" CDRs of these albums (alongside the no-longer-available Dark Waters, No Place on Earth and a collection of previously unreleased material) as things currently stand, the only way to get these recordings is to download them. They are available from iTunes and many other standard download sites (see links on the website) - including, now, (here and here).

Expect something new in 2013...

Please get in touch if you need any info re: any of the above.
