From present to  June 2018 Programme Plan




Weds 13 Dec

This winter’s panto is The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe at West Yorkshire Playhouse. The performance is in the Quarry Theatre which is ‘in the round’ and should make for a different telling. The curtain is at 19:00, a little earlier than usual.

C.S Lewis’s classic tale leaps off the page and on to the stage this Christmas… The Magic awaits!

Join Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter for the most mystical of adventures to a faraway land where it’s always winter, but never Christmas …

Wave goodbye to wartime Britain and say hello to a talking faun, an unforgettable Lion and the coldest, cruellest white Witch….

Following the magically inventive Peter Pan at the National Theatre and the critically acclaimed sell-out tour of Jane Eyre, Sally Cookson explores this timeless story of magic, mischief and mayhem in a spellbinding new production.Tickets £25-£35 – decision by Friday 17th November


Sun 17 Dec

The walk on the 17th will be a linear walk from Ilkley over the moor to Saltaire (approx 8 miles). Sufficient for a pre-christmas stroll. Times nearer the time


Weds 20 Dec

Mince Pie Night


Mon 1 Jan 2018

New Year's Day will be a 6 or 12 mile walk around Harewood and/or Eccup Reservoir.  The 12 miler will start at 10am, and for the 6 miler people should get to the Muddy Boots Café at Harewood for midday.  The 12 milers should get there soon after for coffee & cake, after which we will all head off together.  After about 3 miles the 6 milers will divert off from near the Emmerdale set back towards Harewood village, while the 12 milers will continue on to Eccup Reservoir and back to their start point.  I guess there is a third, circa 7½ mile option of going from the back to the morning start point, subject to transport arrangements having been made.

WORSBOUGH MILL AND WENTWORTH CASTLE  7 MILES - this is moderate walk from the corn mill at Worsbrough bridge  to Wentworth castle, featuring the engine house and remains of a blast furnace then around to the deer park and follies of Wentworth castle The  oute is along footpaths, but most likely will be muddy - long socks or gaiters will be necessary.
