Doug Binder – Full Circle at The Ropewalk

Dean Clough artist-in-residence Doug Binder presents a new body of work that spans both galleries this January. Lauded as “Britain’s master of colour” and a contemporary of his fellow Bradfordian David Hockney, Binder is an English artist whose work, although varying greatly over the course of his career, now inclines exclusively towards a study of the human form through the medium of oil paint.

The exhibition is being held in both Gallery One and Artspace and is open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm, and Sundays from 10am to 4pm.

Admission is free.

Start: January 20, 2018

Mawkin at Ropery Hall

In 2015 Mawkin delivered its self-produced and critically acclaimed album The Ties That Bind. Their unapologetically energetic approach and DIY ethic surprised critics, fans and welcomed new audience members describing them as a “modern day Fairport”. With a host of rebel rousing folk songs and instrumentals the band modernise traditional folk material with their own touch and have since excited audiences with their artillery of loud, boisterous, foot stomping live sets.

Snake Davis, Johnny Thirkell & Mark Cressell at Ropery Hall

Snake is joined on the Ropery Hall stage by Mark Creswell and Johnny Thirkell. Mark, on guitar, is sure to delight the audience with a sublime mixture of soul, jazz, blues and folk. Mark is the Clint Eastwood of rhythm guitar. His chordal contortions have provided a treacherous platform for Mark Knopfler, Ray Davies and Tanita Tikaram. John Thirkell , one of Britain’s top trumpet and flugelhorn players, has played on literally hundreds of pop, rock, and jazz recordings and has also appeared on 22 Number One records. He was on at least one album in the UK charts continuously, without a break, for more than 13 years and in 2009 he had two consecutive UK Number One singles with Pixie Lott.

Alfie Moore – Getting Away With Murder at Ropery Hall

Alfie Moore was a serving police sergeant with the Humberside Constabulary for 18 years. Somewhat unusually he is now a professional stand-up comedian with four sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows under his belt as well as his own Radio 4 series who brings a wealth of insights and comedy moments from his 18 years on the beat, where a keen sense of humour has been the key to his success and survival!
Alfie’s Radio 4 show, It’s a Fair Cop, is a huge hit showcasing his deadpan look at the policeman’s lot and asking the audience how they’d fare in law enforcement.
