Live Stream Gig
Mike Ross and Elles Bailey
Two highly acclaimed musicians bring live music to you at home!
Friday 22nd May 2020, 8pm
With the lockdown we have seen live music venue closures all across the UK. Mike was due to visit us in April, and we are thrilled to announce our first ever live-stream gig in collaboration with both Mike Ross and Elles Bailey.
Tickets can be purchased via Ticketsource at £10 per household (or £5 if you live/will be attending solo). With this you will gain access to a high quality stream with sets from both artists, as well as social interaction with others in attendance and of course with Mike and Elles. An incredibly intimate and special event, not only will you be entertained for the evening, you will be supporting our country’s performers when they need it most.
The performance will take place over Zoom, and you will be emailed an invitation link 48 hours before the gig. We hope to see you there!
Digital Event 2020
Local Artists Showcase
Silsden Art Show
THIS EVENT IS NOW DIGITAL!
Head over to the NotJustHockney website to view the Silsden Virtual Art Show. It replaces the ‘real world’ art show that was scheduled for the 2020 Easter weekend at Silsden Town Hall, but cancelled due to the Covid-19 virus pandemic.
At this difficult time local artists need our support as the usual channels for displaying and selling their artwork temporarily close. So this online alternative will give you, at least, the opportunity to view the artwork of most of the local professional artists who were due to exhibit at the Town Hall. All the artwork you see online is for sale. If you see something you like, please contact the artist concerned.
If any artwork is sold, the artist concerned will make a donation to support the community-managed Silsden Town Hall. Artwork sold will be replaced, so keep checking in here to find out what’s new.
So feast your eyes and enjoy the show!
