A BAND featuring former members of The Beautiful South including singer Alison Wheeler and saxophone player Gaz Birtles, is appearing at Settle Victoria Hall on Saturday, December 2. 

The nine piece band South, also including Phil Barton on guitars, will play the well known songs of The Beautiful South, from the late 1980s, including Perfect 10, Rotterdam, Old Red Eyes Is Back, and Good as Gold, as well as some of their own originals.

On Sunday, December 3, the hall will play host to The John McSherry Trio. Champion piper John McSherry has been a major figure in Irish/Celtic music for over 20 years and is hailed as one of the finest exponents of the art of Uilleann Piping in the world today. He won two All-Ireland piping championships at the age of 14 and was the youngest ever winner of the Oireachtas Piping competition in 1988, going on to represent Ireland at the Lorient Inter-Celtic Festival in the same year.

There will be a change of mood on the afternoon of Wednesday, December 6 when there will be a 'relaxed film' screening of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry staring Jim Broadbent and Penelope Wilton.

It will be followed in the evening by the film The Hundred Foot Journey. Staring Helen Mirren and based on the 2010 novel by the same name by Richard C Morais, the film comes to Victoria Hall courtesy of The Ribblesdale Area Moving Picture Show (TRAMPS) a not-for-profit voluntary group that screens usually foreign language films on the first Wednesday of every month.

Revival of the Fittest, a Settle based rock and roll band, will get everyone rocking on Thursday, December 7.
