THE NEW Cullingworth Village Hall will host its first musical variety show on May 4.

Local performers Plumhall, Ben Jordan and Edwina Hayes will play the 7pm show in the recently-completed building in Lodge Street.

The volunteer team running the hall hope to stage regular live entertainment at the building, which has replaced the rundown Village Hall in nearby Station Road.

Plumhall are a feisty Yorkshire acoustic folk duo who perform regularly in the Keighley and Haworth areas, made up of experienced musician Nick Hall and former Chumbawamba member Michelle Plum.

Teenage singer-songwriter Ben recently released his debut album Ghost.

Singer-songwriter Edwina’s beautifully-written songs have led to her opening shows for Jools Holland and Van Morrison, and American folk icon Nanci Griffith dubbed her the “sweetest voice in England”.

Wilsden singer Craig Williams, who has been compared to Michael Buble, will perform music ranging from old-style swing to Roxy Music.

Richard Fairlie, who produced this year’s Cullingworth Amateurs pantomime, will provide musical accompaniment.

From Cabaret Saltaire comes ‘folkish legend’ Precious Cleaver, quickdraw artist Dick Smartest and mind-reader Korworra Czeztikov.

Also performing will be beatbox supremo Connor Walmsley who uses only a microphone and his breath to make amazing music.

Tickets cost £10 for adults and £7 for under 18s and pensioners, and are available from the Paper Shop and Hair Flair in Halifax Road, Cullingworth, or by visiting
