Live shows are returning to Masham Town Hall - Dates secured include Jenny Eclair (pictured), Omid Djalili and Lindisfarne.

This historic North Yorkshire venue, which was first opened in 1913, is already booking top comedy acts for the autumn as well as some great live music for the months ahead.

Dates secured include Omid Djalili and Jenny Eclair, Lindisfarne and Martin Simpson, Gary Delaney and the country’s leading AC/DC tribute band AC/DC/GB.

Since the first lockdown, Masham Town Hall’s kitchen, gents toilet and heating pipework have been completely renovated during times it has been closed.

Since the New Year, trustees and volunteers have also been busy painting, fixing and fettling to ensure the building now looks much younger than its 108 years.

Other improvements include updated audio-visual systems in the small hall to cater for meetings, conferences or training sessions.

The rescheduled Lindisfarne 50th (ish!) anniversary year tour will see the legendary folk band appear at Masham Town Hall on Saturday, May 14, 2022.
