RISING comic star Will Jackson, writer and performer of 'Yours Sincerely', returns to Skipton Town Hall this summer with his new smash hit solo show Confetti.

Described as a 'hilarious and heart-warming gay rom-com', it received critical acclaim at last year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe and is coming to Skipton this July during Skipton Pride as part of its national tour.

Felix is uptight and unlucky in love. He’s the mate of honour at his best friend’s wedding - one they’ve been planning since childhood - and he’s going to make sure it’s perfect. As long as there are no distractions along the way. It’s Helen’s surprise hen night, and everyone is invited.

Audiences are invited to join Felix for the week leading up to the wedding as he’s swept up in a tumultuous, secret romance along the way.

Unashamedly queer, Confetti is a celebration of the gay best friend - often sidelined in traditional rom-coms. Felix is the star of the show, wearing his heart on his sleeve and keeping the party going.

A solo show led with Will Jackson’s infectious charm, the audience is brought along on the journey, from hen party goody bags on arrival to wearing party hats, waving glow-sticks and exploding party poppers.

Coming up in June at Skipton Town Hall, and starting on June 9 is Comedy Live. Regular host, Colin Manford will be joined by Barry Dodds, Dave Longley and Phil Ellis.

Whether you’re a comedy aficionado or just looking for a night of laughter and fun, the monthly comedy event is the place to be. Get ready for an unforgettable evening of laughter, wit, and pure comedic genius. The Hub bar will be open from 7pm with regular drinks intervals throughout the show, which is aimed at an adult audience.

On Friday, June 30, resident orchestra, Skipton Camerata will perform Bach and Beyond 2, featuring Bach's Brandenburg Concertos three, five and six.

It is the second of two concerts which have seen Ben Crick directing Bach’s complete set of six Brandenburg Concertos over two concerts alongside works inspired by the great master.

JS Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos stand among the greatest creative achievements of the 18th century. Each concerto is written for a different and innovative combination of instruments with many of them given solo spots. This second Bach and Beyond concert concludes the set - watch out for some astonishing harpsichord pyrotechnics and a viola da gamba or two.
