*** 2017 Events***

Saturday 16th September 7.30pm   The Opera Dudes

Take a bricklayer, a pub and club singer, a highly-experienced operatic tenor, an organ scholar, a cassock-clad chorister, a Cambridge Graduate, an impressionist, a couple of comedians, and a prize-winning conductor with appearances on the TV, mix them together and what do you get? Just a couple of seriously talented guys giving you a great night out. In other words, the Opera Dudes. 

Two modern day Mario Lanzas performing some of the world's most romantic music, in their own unique vocal arrangements. The Opera Dudes comprise a posh former Cambridge scholar and an ex-builder turned international operatic tenor.
Between them, Neil and Tim have performed over 50 operas as well as more than 3000 concert performances in most of the major theatres and concerts halls around Great Britain.  Each of them is an accomplished and established performer in their own fields. Their different experiences and backgrounds form an integral part of the act.
Neil’s extraordinary journey as a performer from his early days in Scarrington Minors' Welfare and The Cocked Hat in Broxtowe to St. James’s Palace, The President’s Palace in Malta, Villa Carlotta in Lake Como and theatres in Manhattan will be revealed as part of the show in all its humorous glory.
With his credentials, on the other hand, Tim could never have dreamed that he could team up with a former bricklayer. However, years of study at such illustrious institutions as St. Paul’s Cathedral, Trinity College, Cambridge, The National Opera Studio and subsequent professional experience at Covent Garden, Scottish Opera and Glyndebourne finally enabled him to achieve this dream.

Saturday 21st October 7.30pm  - The Houghton Weavers

The North’s favourite entertainers The Houghton Weavers return to Elmesthorpe Village Hall on Saturday 21st October 2017
The Weavers have been going strong since 1975 cutting their teeth in local folk clubs and in that time have never wavered from their original motto of “Keep Folk Smiling”.
Since then they have enjoyed non-stop success, and together have become some of the country's most popular entertainers, with a large fan club and a great following at their concerts. They can even boast a Number 1 hit in Tasmania with their perennial favourite “The Blackpool Belle”, a song that also reached Number 3 in New Zealand.
Over the past three decades The Houghton Weavers have recorded thirty albums, three DVDs and have numerous radio and television appearances to their credit.
Together they entertain their audiences with humorous jokes and antidotes and sing “popular” folk songs from raucous traditional songs to beautiful ballads done in their own inimitable style.
No two evenings in the Weavers company are ever the same, thanks to the second half of their act being given over to the audiences’ requests – preferably for their own songs!!!. However this unpredictability can, and invariably does, lead to some interesting results.
So come and join in the music and fun at Elmesthorpe Village Hall on 21st October and enjoy an evening with the Houghton Weavers and a smile!
