Friday 25th June – Kirkby Stephen Community Arts present  `Love and Spice’ – Kirkby Stephen Sports and Social Club

We are delighted to welcome Balbir Singh Dance Company to Kirkby Stephen with this beautiful new production. Audience numbers will be strictly limited due to social distancing, so we ask you to book in advance and online if you can for track and trace purposes.

An elderly couple, still very much in love, look back on their lives together, reliving key moments through memories of the meals they shared.  With the couple’s advancing age, each has lost one of their senses: he the sense of smell; she the sense of taste. Can spices – in particular Black Pepper and Cardamom, the king and queen of spices – help them recapture what has been lost?

Love and Spice combines different art forms and cultural traditions in surprisingly delicious ways. Blending Kathak dance and live music, with a chef cooking live on stage… this is truly a multicultural feast for all the senses.

Tickets £10 adult / £5 under 18.  Starts 7.30pm.  For tickets call Kate on 017683 71885.

* 2 for 1 Ticket Offer for 16-35 year olds
