Tasty Tuesday Treats!

Anyone for pizza? We’re now home to Magic Mountain Wood Fired Pizza, on Tuesday evenings from 5pm. ‘Lulu’, the trusty pizza van, will be parked just outside the centre providing delicious treats for the town. On a night when most of our other pizza places are closed we’re sure this will be a welcome addition to the Kirkgate Quarter.

Check out the menu here, and place your order online or by calling 07463715806.

Talisk

Friday 12th Nov. 8pm

£16/£10 U18

Ground-breaking, chart-topping, genre-bending, globetrotting, instantly enthralling… it’s little wonder that Talisk rank highly amongst the most in-demand folk-based groups to emerge from Scotland in the last decade and more.

Mohsen Amini (BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards’ Musician of the Year 2018), Graeme Armstrong and Benedict Morris  (BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2019) fuse concertina, guitar and fiddle to produce a truly innovative, multi-layered signature that has captivated audiences around the globe. At its core, three seemingly acoustic instruments – but in the hands of three master craftsmen; one unmistakable, bold sound and a captivating live show.

Same same… but different!

Tuesday 26th Oct 11.30am & 2pm

Playful, colourful dance theatre for families. Three dancers take you on a funny, delightful and heart-warming journey, exploring our curiosities and fears, the times we feel different, and when we belong.

Inspired by the well-known Anglo-Asian phrase ‘same, same…but different’, meaning “Yes, something kind of similar, but not the exact same thing”, the performers conjure a magical atmosphere, where we celebrate our individuality, diversity and the bonds which connect us all.

Same Same…But Different mixes Kathak, Contemporary and Street dance, with physical storytelling and hints of live music, creating celebratory dance theatre for everyone to enjoy.
