Skelwith Fold reopens on March 1st 2017 for the new season! While we have been busy over the Winter getting ready for 2017, have you been getting ready for the year ahead? To help you get started, here are a few activities going on nearby for our first weekend – just to give you an idea of what you might want to do while enjoying your time back at Skelwith in March!
Many of you might have ended your 2016 at Skelwith by enjoying our Halloween spook-tacular. Why not start the new year in the same way? Parapsychologist Steve Mera has spent the last 33 years working professionally in the field and some 16 years working confidentially for bodies like the Ministry of Defence and police authorities. In this hotly anticipated lecture, Steve will reveal a number of cases from his vast experience that appear to defy rational explanation.
Entrance is £5 at the door which includes refreshments. The event is hosted at Kendal Unitarian Chapel Schoolroom, Branthwaite Brow, Market Place, Kendal LA9 4TN and starts at 7pm.
For a lighter start to 2017, there is always the Comedy Club at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal. The artists performing in March have yet to be announced, but the Brewery Arts Centre has a good reputation for attracting some fantastic up and coming comic acts so is well worth a visit if you fancy a good laugh!
Tickets are just £13.50 and the show starts at 8.30pm on Friday evening.
Just down the road from Skelwith in Keswick is an antique and collectors’ fair on Saturday 4th March. It promises to be a fairly refined event, but with a good selection of fine and vintage jewellery, antiques, collectables, decorative arts, furniture, vintage linens and china from number of local dealers.
The fair runs from 10am to 4pm and costs just 50p entry for what promises to be a fascinating visit.
For those of an artistic temperament, you might be tempted to visit the Brewery Arts Centre (again!) for the latest production of the Sleeping Beauty ballet. First choreographed to Tchaikovsky’s great musical score by Marius Petipa in Russia in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty has wonderful ensembles, solos including the Rose Adage as Princess Aurora meets her suitors, and of course the concluding celebratory dances for the happy union of prince and princess.
The show starts at 2pm with tickets at £18.
