We are thrilled to be hosting, another celebrity Benefit Evening, on Saturday, 23 September, at 7.30. Following her coup in organising an audience with Timothy West and Prunella Scales last year, Jenny Gore has managed to secure an evening with award-winning author, Sally Wainwright.
Sally is well known for her popular and critically-acclaimed television dramas, such as Last Tango in Halifax and Happy Valley, both filmed locally, and To Walk Invisible, a TV film about the Brontes, shown last Christmas. She is currently working on an eight-part series for the BBC about Anne Lister of Shibden Hall.
Sally’s roots are in Calderdale. She went to Sowerby Bridge Grammar, and she has come back to the area to write. Jenny taught her when she was at Sowerby Bridge, and the two have recently renewed their acquaintance, resulting in her generous offer to do a Benefit Evening for the theatre.
Jenny will be chairing an informal evening of conversation, with questions and answers, and some film extracts. Tickets priced at £15, are available at Innovation, Hebden Bridge, or by ringing Sue Riches on 01422 843907.
Book now, for what is sure to be a very special and entertaining evening.
