Calderdale Lower Valley Blog – Communications and updating you on the Coronavirus

Posted on Updated on

The Calderdale Lower Valley Blog will carry on bringing updates to you as and when they become available. We have taken all the necessary steps to keep you informed on essential updates whilst remaining safe.

The team can still be contacted by email or our other online communication pathways as usual. It may be however that the phone will not always be picked up, as some of us have chosen to work from home.

If you need to contact a specific member of the team by phone, it may be worth requesting that person to provide you with a best contact number.

Again, we will monitor the situation and continue updating you.

Best wishes, Calderdale Lower Valley Blog team

Facing the Music – Dame Patricia Routlegde & Edward Seckerson at Brighouse Arts Festival

Posted on Updated on

Facing the Music – Dame Patricia Routlegde & Edward Seckerson

 

It is still one of the best kept secrets in show business that Dame Patricia Routledge trained not only as an actress but also as a singer and had considerable experience and success in musical theatre, both in this country and in the USA.

Her many awards include a Tony for her Broadway performance in the Styne-Harburg musical Darling of the Day and a Laurence Olivier Award for her performance in Leonard Bernstein’s Candide. Her one woman show Come for the Ride toured the UK in 1988 and in 1992, she played Nettie Fowler in the highly acclaimed production of Carousel at the National Theatre. In 1998, she was honoured with the Gold Badge of Merit by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors.

Matthew Harrison-Lord, Brighouse Arts Festival Director, said “This is the first time we have been able to book someone with such prestige, both in title and awards, and it is an honour to announce Dame Patricia as our headliner for our festival in October.”

Dame Patricia, 91, is best known best known for her role as Hyacinth Bucket in the BBC sitcom Keeping Up Appearances, for which she was nominated for the BAFTA TV Award. Her film appearances include To Sir, with Love (1967) and Don’t Raise the Bridge, Lower the River (1968). More appearances on television, include the monologues by Alan Bennett and Victoria Wood; appearing in Bennett’s A Woman of No Importance, as Kitty in Victoria Wood as Seen on TV, and being nominated for the BAFTA TV Award for Best Actress for Bennett’s Talking Heads: A Lady of Letters. She also starred as the lead Hetty Wainthropp in the British television series Hetty Wainthropp Investigates.

 

Steven Lord, Arts for Brighouse Charity Chairman, said “The conversation will be a beautiful evening of culture in the heart of Brighouse, and it is on my birthday, it’s not every birthday you get to spend it with a Dame who has an Olivier and Tony Award – this will be a top event”

 

Edward Seckerson, is well known for presenting BBC Radio 3 series Stage & Screen, in which he interviewed many of the most prominent writers and stars of musical theatre. He also regularly produces podcasts of interviews with notable musical and theatrical artists and makes regular appearanceson the BBC Radio 2 Arts Show, BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4. Edward has also had a successful career in journalism and was the Chief Classical Music Critic for The Independent and The Sunday Correspondent as well as being the Classical Music Critic for The Guardian.

 

Facing the Music is a fascinating encounter with the writer, presenter and broadcaster Edward Seckerson, as Dame Patricia recalls this very special part of her career with access to some rare and treasured recordings.

Facing the Music with Dame Patricia Routlegde & Edward Seckerson, Saturday 10th October 2020, 7:00pm, St Martins Parish Church, Brighouse, Calderdale, West Yorkshire. £22.
