The Autumn/Winter season at The Mart Theatre begins this weekend.

The Kast-Off Kinks and The Sounds Of Simon
Returning by popular demand are The Kast-Off Kinks on Friday 11th November and The Sounds Of Simon on Saturday 12th November.
Crafts In The Pen
Over the weekend of 19th and 20th November Crafts In The Pen will return for its second year. This year’s event sees an increase in stallholders showcasing and selling their hand-crafted gifts. There will also be a greater range of products available.
This will be an excellent weekend to kick off your Christmas shopping by finding some original, unique gifts. Items include ceramics, jewellery, glassware, woodwork, metal, glass, festive decorations and much more.
This year Santa will be paying a visit to his Grotto. The Grotto is free and includes a small present so there’ll be something for all ages to enjoy. Also look out for some of Santa’s reindeer who will be parked up waiting to take him home.
The event is open between 10am and 4pm on both the Saturday and Sunday. There will be two cafés serving hot and cold food and beverages.
Entry is £5 per person, with under 16s getting in free, and this includes free parking and a visitor brochure. All monies raised will be invested into The Mart Theatre which currently runs without any form of funding.
Although sheltered from the wind and rain we advise you to dress warm.

Elvis Is In The Building!
Chris Connor, the world’s leading Elvis performer, is back again on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd December. This is a must-see show for any Elvis fan but book soon because these tickets always sell out fast! On Sunday 4th December The Houghton Weavers will return for an afternoon of songs.
Panto! Sleeping Beauty
Finally we wrap up the season with The Mart’s Christmas Pantomime, which has become a Skipton family tradition. This year the three good fairies will have to battle to evil Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty. Join us for songs, dance, plenty of booing and a hint of cheekiness from Friday 16th December to Sunday 18th December.
