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.

Ben Amoung the Lentils
Canadian Storyteller Olivia Olsen brings one of Alan Bennett’s most revered monologues to life. A window into the life of a vicar’s wife who finds a vision of God at the local off-licence. She lives in an ordinary small town and is witty, tragic, honest and valiant. This funny, yet poignant and tender piece is a tour de force.

Olivia performs this piece with erudite flare and depth. Directed by Andrew Bridgmont whose credits include An Inspector Calls, War Horse, and recently, Cosmos at the Globe.

Live Music Richmondshire Concerts present the Carducci Quartet
How many times have we had the Carducci Quartet? We think this must be their sixth visit to Richmond, and they are always a huge hit with our audiences. Superb musicians, personable, with an exceptional rapport, they are one of the finest string quartets around.

Tonight the Carduccis perform a generously proportioned concert. It includes a much-loved Haydn piece, one of the very first 'modern' string quartets, and Webern's highly charged Langsamer Satz, described as a "little masterpiece". Composed in 1905, Langsamer Satz was never publicly performed - astonishingly - until 1962, just a few years before Shostakovich's very different, very intense Quartet No. 11. The piece by Philip Glass is a companion to his Third Quartet, which the Carduccis performed in Richmond a few years ago, and which gave our audience such pleasure.

Eleanor Conway's Walk of Shame 2017 Tour
On Saturday 1st April Frazer Theatre Comedy Club presents Eleanor Conway’s Walk of Shame.

What is life without something that makes you feel good?

Ferocious clubber and party girl Eleanor Conway has always been a woman of extremes; she partied around the world as a music journalist, ran off to Asia to work for the triads, made hardcore porn, won Ashley Madison and Tinder’d her way through most of London…

Now sober from alcohol and substances she’s failing to find moderation and meaning. A standup debut about sex, sobriety and sambuca and the modern addict that lies within us all.

As heard on BBC 4 Extra and BBC 5 Live

★★★★★ ‘I’m confused and scared, in a good way… She’s brilliant’ Cream of the Fringe

★★★★’Reminiscent of early Graham Norton (albeit sexier)’ The List
