Summer in the Courtyard: Ilkley Lit Festival Fringe

18th Aug 2022
6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

The Lit Festival Summer Fringe is back! Come and watch local Yorkshire creatives perform in a range of artforms in the atmospheric courtyard of Ilkley Manor House, including poetry, music, comedy improv and spoken word. There will be five evenings of outdoor performances taking place on Thursdays from 6.30pm, running from 28 July to 25 August.

This evening we present:

Barbara Howerska, born in Bradford, celebrates diversity and local characters, telling the story of the changes, challenging perceptions with up front poetry.

Bring Me Sunshine Trio is an Ilkley-based social enterprise using strings and song for well-being, playing a mix of classical, folk and popular music using string trio, voices, guitar and percussion.

Chalk and Cheese: Thought-provoking observations (mostly geological) or just plain silliness (with added cheesy rhymes). Two poets as different as Chalk and Cheese.
