After several years of winning acclaim in the comedy world for their humour-infused shows, New Art Club’s Tom Roden and Pete Shenton are reaffirming their commitment to dance and physical theatre in their new work Cupid’s Revenge.

Created before lockdown and now ready to tour as we begin to return to theatres, Cupid’s Revenge is a 60-minute physical poem that plants Love under the microscope of the 21st century. Performed on a set designed by Will Holt, centred around a 2-metre love heart that has crashed to earth, Cupid’s Revenge uses rhythmic repetition and spoken text to spotlight love’s idiosyncrasies and commonalities.

As New Art Club, Pete and Tom started making shows together in Manchester in 1998 and have been presenting ground-breaking performances together nationally and internationally ever since, drawing a broad spectrum of audiences for their genre-defying shows. Cupid’s Revenge signifies a fresh direction for the pair as they refocus on their roots and training in choreography.

Miriam Margolyes stars at the Royal Hall in Harrogate this October to discuss her new and much anticipated memoir, This Much is True.

The nation’s favourite, and naughtiest, treasure is hosted by Cause UK, on Sunday afternoon at 3pm on October 17.

Clair Challenor-Chadwick, MD of Cause UK, said: “At the age of 80, Miriam has finally decided to tell her life story and it’s well worth the wait. After working with Miriam for many years on various projects, it’s a huge delight to be hosting our good friend in our hometown. Miriam is the tonic we all need. She is truly a force for good, an inspirational, and endlessly entertaining person. Thank goodness for Miriam Margolyes!”

The long-awaited memoir promises an extraordinary adventure through a truly independent mind and life. This Much Is True recounts stories that stretch from Scorsese to Streisand, a cross-dressing Leonardo di Caprio to Isaiah Berlin. It’s been praised as clever and self-critical, warm and honest, and full of life and surprises, from the inimitable author.

The Harry Potter actor will be in conversation with former BBC Radio York broadcast journalist, Anna Wallace, followed by an audience Q&A.
