Big Top Beauty and the Beast – 29th November to 3rd December 2017

“Roll Up! Roll Up! Step right this way for a phantasmagorical delight – the Greatest Show on Earth!”

Bradford Players, in their 91st year, present for you, for one week only, a spectacle the like of which you will never before have seen. Is it a panto? Is it a circus? Oh no it isn’t! Oh yes it is? Oh no, yes… It’s both!

Rose is a beautiful but humble popcorn vendor wishing for better things in life. Zitrot is an evil ring mistress who craves for that one remarkable attraction to complete her menagerie of performers. Meanwhile, something/one lurks in a nearby castle, lonely and in need of love. Who will come out on top? The big top!

Written by one of Bradford Players own, Charlie Vincent (with assistance from Rebecca Stoppard), we hope that when our circus/panto rolls into town, you won’t be left feeling down...

Big Top Beauty and the Beast 29th November to 3rd December 2017

We are so pleased and excited to be given the honour of presenting this brand NEW Pantomime, written by Charlie Vincent and Rebecca Stoppard. Based on the story of Beauty and The Beast with the bonus of being set in a Circus. 

Intrigued, then why not come along and see for yourselves how the many Circus characters help bring love to the Beast.

The cast of characters is endless, but here are a few to give you a taster. Mystic Mallory (the fortune telling Dame) & her silly son Russell, Zitrot the Ring Mistress (and baddy) accompanied by the comedy duo Ruff and Tumble. Cyril and Cecil Butlers to the Beast, and of course the beautiful Rose. In addition, we have an amazing ensemble of Circus acts such as Tina the terrified Tightrope walker, Marjory the Marginally Accurate Knife Thrower, Belinda the Bearded lady, Nellie the elephant, and many more.

There will be all the usual pantomime fun, jokes , songs and dance, great costumes, and of course plenty of audience participation. So why not join us. We are delighted to be performing at The Bradford Playhouse in Little Germany. The Playhouse has a lovely old theatre feel to it with comfortable seating in the Stalls and Circle and a Bar for your interval refreshment, and plenty of secure parking just across the road.

Queensbury Walking Group Ascent Of Penyghent Saturday 25th February 2017

Members of the Queensbury Walking Groups are departing Queensbury on Saturday 25th February and travelling to Helwith Bridge. They will then walk up the gentle slopes of Penyghent, then reaching the steep ascent to the summit, a bit of a scramble to the top. Then down the other side to Hull Pot, Horton in Ribblesdale and a walk along the banks of the Ribble back to Helwith Bridge.

Due to the prevailing weather conditions, 59 mph winds on the summit of Penyghent and safety concerns the walk has been amended. We are now walking the Silsden area.

Penyghent will be walked perhaps next month.
