"There is no jazz singer in the country to touch her.” – The Times

Over the last quarter century Dean Clough has hosted some of the greatest names in UK jazz. Norma Winstone was not only one of the earliest but has also been one of the most consistent. When you consider that she could perform anywhere in the world, this is not only flattering but an abiding testament to her generosity and enthusiasm.
Which is why, despite the changes that have put our performance events on hold for the last year, we've geared up especially to celebrate Norma's 75th birthday this September - and hope that not only her many Dean Clough fans but even a few new faces will join us for this evening of exceptional musicianship.

Expect melody and old favourites; expect improvised counterpoint and innovation... expect sheer class.

"Here is the true, beating heart of British theatre" - The Daily Mail

Northern Broadsides and York Theatre Royal present this revival of J B Priestley’s classic comedy 'When We Are Married'.

Set in in 1908 in the town of Cleckleywyke in the West Riding. The Helliwells, the Parkers and the Soppitts are highly respected pillars of their community … but not for much longer. Married on the same day in the same chapel, they gather to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. The celebrations are short lived when they discover the vicar wasn’t licensed and they are actually not married.
In fact, they have been living in sin for 25 years.
First performed in 1938, J B Priestley’s heartily entertaining northern comedy plays right into the hands of the acclaimed Northern Broadsides – a company celebrated by audiences for its charisma, vitality and relish of language.
When We Are Married is directed by Barrie Rutter whose previous directing credits include Northern Broadsides recent productions of The Merry Wives, the award winning An August Bank Holiday Lark, We Are Three Sisters and Othello featuring Lenny Henry in the lead role.
Says Barrie: “When We Are Married is the quintessential Yorkshire comedy with an absurd plot overflowing with authentic attitudes of the day; fun for the cast as well as the audience. Having wanted to stage this classic comedy for many years and also have the opportunity to once again co-produce with York Theatre Royal, I really can’t wait to get this wonderful new revival on the road.”

The Dean Clough Lego brick model
The Dean Clough Lego brick model will eventually use around a million bricks, be 35 foot long and have a chimney that's over 7 foot high.

RIGHT NOW, though, it's a 'mere' 15 foot long... and actually it's still pretty stunning.

Lego modellers Michael LeCount and Tony Priestman are at present studiously crafting the landscape around the East end of the half-mile site that used to be the world's largest carpet mill. You can see how it is progressing - for free - at any time during the normal gallery hours of 9.30am to 5.00pm, seven days a week.
