Exhibitions Isabel Alexander: Artist and Illustrator
Isabel Alexander (1910-1996), artist and illustrator, has been described by admirers as ‘the English Georgia O’Keeffe.’ This first major Yorkshire retrospective of her life's work, featuring over 50 prints, paintings and drawings, reveals the lifetime in art of an artist who is worthy of greater recognition.

Alexander trained at the Slade School of Art, London in the 1930’s then travelled widely in Europe and lived for the last 20 years of her life in Yorkshire, where her work attracted a strong following. The works on show reveal her extraordinarily diverse career as an illustrator and artist, influenced by her great love of the British landscape and the natural world, as well as her great empathy for the disadvantaged.

Admission Free
Open 10am – 5pm, Tuesday to Saturday and 2 – 5pm on Sundays. Closed Mondays except Bank Holidays. Closes at 4pm November to March.

Aladdin and the Pirates
In January 2017 the Knaresborough Players will be presenting their annual family pantomime. ​This year’s production is Aladdin and the Pirates, a modern take on the traditional family pantomime story.

​Set in Old Peking, the story centres around Widow Twankey and her son Aladdin who is in love with the Emperor’s daughter Princess Eugenie. Meanwhile, evil pirate Captain Abanazer and his wicked crew trick Aladdin into helping them locate a magical lamp on Pirate Island. The Gene Genie who appears from the lamp sets out to help Captain Abanazer become the richest and most powerful man in the kingdom, kidnap the Princess and turn Aladdin’s dreams to dust. Assisted by his friend Wishee Washee and their pet penguin Monty, Aladdin stumbles upon a powerful (if a little awkward) genie of his own who helps him stand up to his wicked uncle. But can Aladdin defeat the pirates, win fame and fortune, marry the princess and live happily ever after?

​Performances will take place on:

Live Music Richmondshire Concerts present the Frith Piano Quartet
We haven't had a visit from the full Frith Quartet since 2009, and it's good to welcome them back. This time the group is accompanied by John Tattersdill (double-bassist for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra). In Schubert's Trout Quintet the unusual instrumentation brings an added richness to this sunny, attractive work, and allows the cello to be more playful than is usual. Vaughan Williams chose the same un-familiar lineup for his own Brahmsian Piano Quintet, which we will also hear. In between the two quintets is Mozart's K478, widely held to be the first major piano quartet in the chamber music repertoire, and considered exceptionally difficult when it was published. Fortunately that shouldn't be a problem for tonight's pianist, the excellent Benjamin Frith.
