Eleanor Conway's Walk of Shame 2017 Tour
Saturday 1 April 2017
Frazer Theatre, Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
Frazer Theatre Comedy Club presents Eleanor Conway’s Walk of Shame.

What is life without something that makes you feel good?

Ferocious clubber and party girl Eleanor Conway has always been a woman of extremes; she partied around the world as a music journalist, ran off to Asia to work for the triads, made hardcore porn, won Ashley Madison and Tinder’d her way through most of London…

Now sober from alcohol and substances she’s failing to find moderation and meaning. A standup debut about sex, sobriety and sambuca and the modern addict that lies within us all.

As heard on BBC 4 Extra and BBC 5 Live

‘I’m confused and scared, in a good way… She’s brilliant’ Cream of the Fringe

’Reminiscent of early Graham Norton (albeit sexier)’ The List

Tickets are £10 in advance (£12 on the door) available from our online box office at www.frazertheatre.co.uk or by calling 07835 927965. Doors open at 7.30pm, show starts at 8pm.


Frazer Theatre Comedy Club
Friday 7 April 2017
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
The Frazer Theatre Comedy Club returns to action on Friday April 7th with a night of the very best stand-up comedy around. An eclectic mix of acts awaits our audience this month, with something for everybody!

As always, tickets are still just £10 in advance, £12 on the door while stocks last. They are available in person from the Old Chemist Shop, by calling 07835 927965 or from our online box office at www.frazertheatre.co.uk

Doors open at 7.30pm, show starts at 8pm.

Joining us this month are:

ED ACZEL
One of the country’s finest proponents of “anti-comedy”, Ed Aczel is a stunningly unique voice on the circuit, revered by no-less a talent than Jimmy Carr as being among the most hilarious around. If Ed;s comedy looks like it being performed by a shambling project manager from Aylesbury, well, that’s because it is, but in a remarkable alchemy that only true genius can achieve, the laughter comes quick and often, seemingly to Ed’s bemusement. This is one act you really have to see to believe!

ANDREA HUBERT
Winner of the What’s On London Comedy Awards Best Debut Show in 2016 and the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Award 2013, Andrea has been making a name for herself with her meteoric rise through the comedy ranks. Making a name for yourself in an increasingly crowded comedy landscape is increasingly hard, but from almost day one Andrea’s sheer talent has gained her no shortage of well-deserved attention. Currently developing a sitcom with Objective productions, expect to hear a lot more from Andrea in 2017.

PHIL LUCAS
Phil is a master of high-octane digital tomfoolery. Using PowerPoint, his dodgy PhotoShop, out of date cultural references and barrage of multimedia silliness have made him an in-demand act on stages up and down the country. He offers something completely different to anyone else on the circuit, appearing in Knaresborough for the very first time.

PHIL ELLIS
Phil Ellis is a comedian and writer known for his chaotic stand-up and live performances. Phil broke onto the comedy scene with his widely acclaimed Funz and Gamez, which won the Panel Prize at the 2014 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards. His solo work has showcased a manic and imaginative energy unsurpassed by his peers and we can’t wait to see what happens when the one-man whirlwind takes control of proceedings for the evening!
Film at the Frazer : Calendar Girls
Saturday 8 April 2017
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
On Saturday 8th April at 2pm Film at the Frazer presents Calendar Girls.

Calendar Girls is a humorous and inspiring dramatisation of the true story of the Yorkshire Women’s Institute members who stripped for a charity calendar to raise funds for a local leukaemia unit, where a friends husband was treated until his death. Julie Walters plays Annie, whose husband dies of leukaemia and Helen Mirren plays her best friend Chris, the genius and driving force behind the calendar. The film also features roles from the hilarious Celia Imrie, Annette Crosbie, Penelope Wilton and Linda Bassett.

The film follows the loss of Annie’s husband, John, the spark of the calendar idea, their white wine fuelled photoshoot, the ensuing media frenzy as the world wakes up to Yorkshire’s very own calendar girls and the effects of their new found media fame on their friendships and families.

Admission is £3 and tickets are available on the door. For any enquiries please call 07835 927965. Doors will open at 1.30pm and the film starts at 2pm.

On the morning of 8th April we will also be showing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Film at the Frazer has been made possible through a grant from Harrogate Borough Council’s Small Grants Scheme with the aim of providing affordable cultural, social and intergenerational activities for the residents of Knaresborough.
Film at the Frazer : Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Saturday 8 April 2017
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
On Saturday 8th April at 11am Film at the Frazer presents Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Kickstart your Easter holidays with a trip to chocolate heaven with this family favourite film starting Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka.

Starring Gene Wilder in the title role, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory may not be the most faithful Roald Dahl adaptation to hit the big screen, but there’s a strong argument that it’s the best. Even Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, with their 2005 release Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, couldn’t come close to this 1971 musical version.

Even nearly four decades later, it’s a surprisingly dark yet ultimately utterly joyful film, as Charlie Bucket finds his golden ticket and gets to join four gruesome children on a tour of the factory of the film’s title. What’s more, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is packed with toe-tapping, memorable musical numbers, a terrific cast of young performers, and a memorable lead performance from Wilder. His Willy Wonka is a complex creation, veering unpredictably between likeable and quite sinister. And it’s a performance that sticks in the mind long, long after the credits have rolled.

Admission is £3 and tickets are available on the door. For any enquiries please call 07835 927965. Doors will open at 10:30 and the film starts at 11am.

On the afternoon of 8th April we will also be showing Calendar Girls.

Morgan and West Parlour Tricks Magic Show
Friday 19 May 2017
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
Morgan & West amaze and astound with their mind boggling magic!

On Friday 19th May 2016 join time travelling magic duo Morgan & West for an evening chock full of jaw dropping, brain bursting, gasp eliciting feats of magic.

Morgan & West have fooled Penn & Teller (Fool Us ITV 1), competed to be the Next Great Magician (ITV 1), and even attempted to escape The Slammer (CBBC). Join these practitioners of prestidigitation for an unforgettable evening of magic, mystery, and the unexplainable.

The dashing chaps offer up a plateful of illusion and impossibility, all served with wit, charm and no small amount of panache. Be sure to wear a hat – Morgan & West might just blow your mind!

Family friendly (7+). Contains sections which young children younger than 7 may not understand.

Tickets are £10 (£8 Over 60s/Under 16s) from our online box office at www.frazertheatre.co.uk

Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 7.30pm.
