Honesty Over Silence

Honesty Over Silence seeks to open up conversations around topics that many find difficult such as trusting in God through life’s ups and downs, dealing with anxiety and depression, the challenges of parenting a child with special needs, living in community, learning to look after ourselves, developing our character, and living with thankful hearts even in tough seasons. It will examine the strength in letting go of our need to be in control as well as looking at how we can stop comparing ourselves to others and instead live authentically and honestly as we grow into the people God has created us to be.

Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show

Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show

Hambledon Productions with the kind support of The Tommy Cooper Estate and Vicky Cooper Present JUST LIKE THAT! THE TOMMY COOPER SHOW

Tommy Cooper was a true comic genius. His impeccable timing, misfiring magic, trademark fez and quick-fire gags made him an international star and a true icon of the 20th Century. Now, over 30 years since his untimely passing, the appetite for his surreal slapstick, classic routines and snappy one-liners, continues to be re-discovered by old and new fans alike.

"JLT!" continues to wow audiences after sell-out success at London’s Museum of Comedy and an extensive UK tour. This all-encapsulating show features John Hewer (Tony Hancock, Hancock's Half Hour - The 'Lost' Episodes, Harold Steptoe, Steptoe and Son) giving "a perfect illusion of time travel" (The Lost Review) and delivering "nuances both obvious and subtle" (TmeOut) as the man in the fez.

The show, first produced in 2014, has enjoyed enormous success across the UK and features classic favourites such as “spoon-jar”, “bottle-glass” and the hilarious “Hats” routine, combined with hidden gems and bumbling magic from Cooper’s extensive back catalogue.

John Hewer “captures the Cooper style, from the mumbled speech and loud laughter to the awkward giant-body language” (The Stage) as he brings Cooper back to life in this family-friendly show that’s a must for all generations of knockabout comedy.

For die-hard Cooper fans, it’s the chance to relive those memories and join in the groan-worthy gags and famous routines (plus plenty of lesser-known surprises

and belly laughs!) For others, it’s a perfect evening of music-hall inspired entertainment that’ll have you rolling in the aisles – jus’-like-that!

Complete with live musical accompaniment, this highly acclaimed tribute show is “a loving ode to a comic oddball” (Beyond The Joke) and is the perfect celebration of Britain's favourite comedian.

“If you fancy a trip down memory lane, then it’s ticket, money, money, ticket – just like that!” - Chortle

12 Silk Handkerchiefs

12 Silk Handkerchiefs - A Song Cycle and multi media show

12 silk.jpg

Acclaimed singer/songwriter Reg Meuross joins with author Brian W Lavery to present this song cycle 12 Silk Handkerchiefs* which tells in music and multi-media the story of the disaster and subsequent uprising led by fighting fishwife Mrs Lillian Bilocca.  The show, which premiered to a packed out Kardomah94 earlier this year, features original songs by Reg, as well as a multi-media show of images never seen outside this show, and a series of narrative links by Brian W Lavery from his book, The Headscarf Revolutionaries.

Accomplished local folk singer and multi-instrumentalist Sam Martyn and stalwark of the Hull folk scene Mick McGarry  will be special guests at this performance.

Brian Lavery.jpg

Reg said: "In March 2017 I was invited to play a concert in Hull. I had already heard about Big Lil Bilocca and her fight in the late Sixties to pressure the Government into introducing much tighter safety after the triple trawler tragedy of 1968 and I was drawn to find out more while he was there. My research led me to the book The Headscarf Revolutionaries by Brian W Lavery and to a meeting with Brian’s friend, local musician Mick McGarry. Together we went for an in-depth tour of the old fish docks. Mick also gave me a collection of local songs and Brian gave me a copy of his book. The detail in the book provided some really rich source material for a song cycle based on this fascinating period of British industrial history." 

Brian added, "I was greatly honoured when I heard the song cycle Reg had written. He is truly a gifted songwriter and it seemed obvious that we should work together on what became 12 Silk Handkerchiefs. *The title comes from the fact that Lil’s last action was to send her daughter to buy a set of handkerchiefs to give as gifts to those who had treated her is hospital before her death in 1988.

Reg’s music honours and complements the story and performing in Hull Minster is a great way of acknowledging the tragic events of that Dark Winter that claimed so many of our brave trawler men in 1968."

All artists will be signing/selling their books and CDs after the gig.

FURTHER INFORMATION

Described by BBC Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe as "a brilliant singer-songwriter with a social conscience", Reg Meuross first emerged onto the acoustic music scene in the 1980s with the fast paced duo Panic Brothers and has, over the years of touring and playing solo as well as with many other acclaimed artists, developed a style that as Pete Townshend says "allows the listener to embrace the whole breadth of his work over many years without distraction… he sings in the neutral accent of an Englishman who travels the entirety of the British Isles, and tastes all its flavours, influenced by all its most profound national colours. In this he reminds one of Roy Harper or Ewan McColl, recent greats who went before him."  Reg then went on to form the band The Flamingos which featured ex Graham Parker guitarist Martin Belmont, Bob Loveday from The Penguin Cafe Orchestra & Bob Geldof’s Band & Alison Jones of The Barely Works. They recorded one album called ‘Arrested’.

In 1996 Reg decided to go solo and has since released 13 highly acclaimed studio albums. Reg’s appearances at art centres, music clubs and festivals throughout the UK and abroad, and his albums have established his songs as "the hinges upon which swing the doors of perceptive English folk" (Folkwords). Festival appearances include: Cropredy, Folk on the Coast, Bude, Great British Folk Festival, Auckland Festival NZ, Broadstairs Folk Week, Gate To Southwell, Costa Del Folk, Illawarra Folk Festival (Australia) and many more, small and large. Reg is the patron artist of Priston Folk Festival in Somerset and Bridport Folk Festival in Dorset and of Holywell Music and Folk in Oxford.

Brian W Lavery was born in Glasgow’s East End in 1959. He has been a factory worker,

car valet, market trader, waiter, university dropout, VAT officer (very briefly) and latterly a journalist, university tutor and writer. After more than twenty-five years of various senior roles in national and regional journalism he returned to higher education and gained a first in English literature and creative writing at the University of Hull. His book, The Headscarf Revolutionaries (Barbican Press, 2015) – now optioned by a major television production company – derived from a funded PhD at that university, where he taught creative nonfiction. His new book The Luckiest Thirteen, the story of the St Finbarr 1966 Christmas Day trawler disaster has already established itself as another best-seller for Barbican Press this year.

In 2017, he contributed to End Notes, a collection published by the University of Hull as part of its Crossing Over project; and Hull: Culture, History, Place(Liverpool University Press, 2017) – with a chapter about trawler safety campaigner Lillian Bilocca.

His programme for BBC Radio 4’s Four Thought series, entitled Courage and Effect, was also drawn from his doctoral research. The Oxford University National Dictionary of Biography (‘the biographer’s Bible’) commissioned him to write the entry on Mrs Bilocca, aka Big Lil. Planet Publications (Wales) and Umber has published his short fiction over the years, and Other Poetry, About Larkin and the Larkin Press have published his poetry.

Dr Lavery has lived in Hull with his wife Kathryn for more than thirty-five years. They have two grown-up daughters, Catriona and Rose, and a border collie called Dylan. He is an honorary research associate at the University of Hull and works as a writer, journalist and creative writing tutor. He is proud to teach with the Workers’ Educational Association brianwlavery.com

Sam Martyn is a member of Hull folk band Beggar’s Bridge, the White Horse Ceilidh Band and the Green Ginger Garland dancers, and she also performs solo – when she can find the time! Combining her rich, traditional singing style with piano, low and high whistle, and harmonium, her eclectic repertoire stretches from folk ballads to her own reworkings of musical and popular songs.

Mick McGarry is a stalwart of the Hull folk scene for the past fifty years. He sings with the highly-respected singing group Spare Hands and is front man with cult-status steam-punk folk rockers The Hillbilly Troupe. He has sang and performed with some of the biggest names in the business and is much admired as ‘the singer’s singer.’

The Milligan Papers

Celebrating 100 years of Spike Milligan, this anarchic “Goon Show from the 1980’s”, written by his longstanding (someone fetch him a chair!) collaborator John Antrobus for BBC Radio, is a fresh, vibrant salute to one of the all-time geniuses of British comedy.

This spirited revival premiers from Hambledon Productions (Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show and Steptoe and Son) and is chock-full of zany, Milligan-esque humour. Revel in a surreal take on Jonah and the Whale, that “cake” elusive Pimpernel and the incredible case of the vanishing Flying Scotsman. All this – and less! – in The Milligan Papers.

Omega & Alpha in Aid of MacMillan Cancer Support

Hull Minster are proud to support this performance of Omega & Alpha

Omega and Alpha has primarily been written so that it is accessible to choirs and choral societies of all standards. The style of music is a combination of traditional oratorio brought up to date with Musical Theatre elements. The work contains choruses ranging from quiet comtemplation to raw power and passion.


Whilst the story of the last days of Jesus’ life and the events which followed is familiar to many people, Omega and Alpha tries to explore the feelings of the individuals involved. Who was manipulating whom, and how did the followers of Jesus react to his strange actions. It raises the question of endings and beginnings; “Did the end of Jesus’ life (the Omega) herald the start of Christianity (the Alpha).
