DIARY DATES CINEMA SPIN A YARN CRAFT SOCIAL Calling all knitters, crocheters, weavers and spinners: this free online Zoom call get together takes place on the second Tuesday of every month (in normal times, crafters meet at the Halifax Piece Hall). No need to book. Email the organisers for details (via the Piece Hall website). SEPTEMBER 30–OCTOBER 4 MATTHEW BOURNE’S THE RED SHOES At the time of writing, at least parts of the Stephen Joseph Theatre were opening again: the Eat Me Cafe, the shop – and the cinema. The cinema opening is good news, because The Red Shoes, a screening of Matthew Bourne’s Olivier Award-winning adaptation of the Powell and Pressburger classic, is a must-see. Safety measures will be in place in the SJT cinema: limited capacity to ensure social distancing, staff assigning seats on arrival to maximise social distancing and, of course, mandatory face coverings. Other measures besides, so see the website for full details. thepiecehall.co.uk/events/spin-a-yarncraft-social facebook.com/ groups/804910276699198/ EAST RIDING THEATRE At the time of writing, The ERT was about to relaunch its online programme ‘with an enhanced and more interactive programme of events, which will be available across social media and online via our website.’ 01482 874050 eastridingtheatre.co.uk Stephen Joseph Theatre 01723 370541 sjt.uk.com OCTOBER 11 BRIDLINGTON VEGAN ONLINE FESTIVAL OCTOBER 9–11 WIDESCREEN WEEKEND The Vegan Festival was scheduled to take place at Bridlington Spa this month. Instead, it’s moved online and will be free to view via Instagram. If you want to do something in person, however, there will be a trail around Bridlington’s veganfriendly businesses. More details on the website. On the bill this year is the work of pioneering female film editors (including Verna Fields, who edited Jaws and American Graffiti), childhood favourites (we’re talking The Goonies and Harry Potter) and early 3D cinema (notably 1954’s The Creature from the Black Lagoon in 3D). Various safety and hygiene measures will be in place throughout, including socially distanced seating arrangements – and you’ll need to prebook, of course. See the website for full details. bridlingtonveganfestival.co.uk WETHERBY ARTS FESTIVAL YOUTUBE CHANNEL The Wetherby Arts Festival would normally be taking place this month. It’s not, of course, for obvious reasons, which is frustrating because the line-up is always reliably good. There is, however, a YouTube channel you can visit which, the organisers say, they are hoping to expand.
