We’ve put together a guide of what’s on and where this weekend. So you’ll never be stuck at home bored!
Friday 17th November
East Riding Theatre – Wuthering Heights
The ever-entertaining John Godber Company present a re-working of a classic Yorkshire story. Jane Thornton’s adapted version of this well known classic has been designed to work in a theatre setting. This masterpiece by Emily Bronte has stood the test of time and has become an enduring story of horror and revenge.
The adaptation currently showing at East Riding Theatre in Beverley is adapted by award winning playwright Jane Thornton.
Runtime: 1 hour 55 minutes.
When: Friday and Saturday, 7:30pm
How To Book: Online (as of writing only 24 tickets are available for the remaining nights, so book fast!)
Bridlington Spa – The Simon And Garfunkel Story
Following it’s West End success at the ‘Leicester Square Theatre’, London, ‘The Simon and Garfunkel Story’ is currently the biggest and the most successful No 1 International touring theatre show celebrating the lives and career of Folk/Rock sensation Simon and Garfunkel.
Featuring a full cast of talented West End actor – musicians, ‘The Simon and Garfunkel Story’ takes you back through the ‘Groovy’ times of the 1960s. It tells the story of both Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel from their humble beginnings as Rock n Roll duo ‘Tom and Jerry’, right through their massive success, dramatic break-up and finishing with a stunning recreation of the 1981 Central Park reformation concert.
Using a huge projection screen, the show features 1960’s photos and film footage whilst a full live band perform all their hits including ‘Mrs Robinson’, ‘Cecilia’, ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, ‘Homeward Bound’, ‘Sound of Silence’ and many more!
With every performance creating a standing ovation, this is an evening not to be missed!
When: One Night Only – 17th November, 7:30pm

Saturday 18th of November
Bridlington Town AFC v Staveley Miners Welfare
After midweek defeat at home against Pontefract Collieries, Bridlington Town will be looking to return to winning ways.
Two defeats on the trot for Town have seen them drop into a mid-table scrap as the season hits the half-way point.
Sixteenth Placed Staveley Miners Welfare come to Bridlington after a string of poor results, including three out of the last four games conceding 4 goals.
Even the most terrible of gamblers wouldn’t put money on this game to finish 0-0.
Be sure to arrive in plenty of time before the game to have a few cheeky drinks (unless you’re driving of course) before the match!
Tickets: £6 Adults £3 Concessions/U16, all available at the gate.
Kick-Off: 3pm (Seasiders Bar open 2pm)
Hall Road Rangers v Athersley Recreation
Coming straight from the defeat against Liversedge on Tuesday, and attendance being at it’s lowest all season, Hall Road Rangers are looking to bag a much-needed 3 points against Athersley Recreation, a team starting to show improved form. After Athersley’s poor start to the season they’re in the relegation scrap, struggling on 19 points, but with only 4 points separating Hall Road and Athersley on 10th place to 19th place the tables could quite easily turn at this stage of the season.
This game is certainly not one to be missed. Sharing a kick-off with the two other matches featured in our weekend guide it’ll be a tough choice to make who to go see!
Tickets: Available at the turnstile
Hull City v Ipswich Town
If non-league isn’t your thing Hull City face Ipswich Town, with kick-off being the same time as the Bridlington Town AFC match.
Ipswich come into this match as clear favourites after a less-than-spectacular start to the Championship season by Hull City. With a thread-bare squad and the January transfer window seeming an eternity away, Leonid Slutsky’s men face a difficult month and a half until desperately needed reinforcements can, and should, be brought in.
With turbulent times, to say the least, off the pitch, consistent protest of fans against owners that appear to simply not care about the success of the club, these are dark days for Hull. The last time things turned as sour as this the team were locked out of their own ground, back at Boothferry Park (or Fer Ark as it’s more affectionately known, after the falling of several letters from the signage).
Tickets remain on sale for this game and are unlikely to sell out, with lackluster attendances you’d expect a few leagues down.
Kick-Off is at 3pm, but arrive in plenty of time as the turnstiles have been known to cause delays in entry (even with dwindling attendances).
