An Evening with Gervase Phinn

Yorkshire author and raconteur Gervase Phinn draws on his experiences as a school teacher and HMI Inspector to deliver an evening of amusing anecdotes and stories.

If you’ve never fully appreciated the expression “out of the mouths of babes” then you must come and hear what Gervase Phinn has to share – it’s always a delightful evening’s entertainment.

The evening starts at the School Museum from 7.00pm where you can enjoy a welcoming drink before moving to the Joseph Wright Hall (formerly the Salvation Army Citadel) next door at 7.30pm.  This is a first floor hall with chair lift access only if you have mobility difficulties.  It’s advisable to bring a cushion too!  Following the performance everyone is invited back to the School Museum where there is paying-bar, refreshments (included in your ticket price) and a chance to meet Gervase – who is one of the patrons of the Wilderspin school Museum.

The last few tickets (£16) are still available from Wilderspin School Museum, Queen Street or by phone on (01652) 635172.
