At the Theakston's owned White Bear Hotel there started a small evening of beer tasting and music, this was 11 years ago and has now grown into a 3 day event attracting thousands of people from far and wide.

Now Masham has always had a bustling arts scene and the Masham Festival is known all over the country for its variety of events so this fits into a cultural calender very nicely.


Masham is also famous for its clear water which is why it was chosen as a base for several breweries all of whose products will be available for tasting during the festival.

Daisy Pulls it off!



Harrogate-based amateur dramatics group Woodlands, is putting on an ‘absolutely scrummy’ production of ‘Daisy Pulls It Off’ at The Harrogate Theatre Studio this June.


The comedy directed by Julie James and written by Denise Deegan, is a comic spoof of a bygone era of jolly hockey sticks, schoolgirl pranks and midnight feasts set in an elite 1920’s English girls school.  The play follows the adventures of super-achiever Daisy Meredith, the first ever elementary school pupil to win a scholarship at Grangewood Girls School.  But life does not run smoothly for Daisy as she fights to keep her place and her honour against the snobbish behaviour of school cronies Sybil Burlington and Monica Smithers.


he original production of ‘Daisy Pulls It Off’ was produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber and enjoyed a long and successful West End run.  It also won an Olivier Award and The Drama Theatre Award for Best Comedy.


This production sees Woodlands celebrate its forty-third year since its beginnings in 1969 at Woodlands School in Harrogate and has grown today to over fifty members.  ‘Daisy Pulls It Off’ is the first of two plays the group will perform at The Harrogate Theatre Studio this year.  In previous years Woodlands has performed ‘Equus’, ‘Habeas Corpus’ and ‘Our Day Out.’  The Group also reached this years quarter-finals of the All England Theatre Festivals North Central region.


‘Daisy Pulls It Off’ is running from 20 to 23 June.  Tickets are available from Harrogate Theatre Box Office on 01423 502116 or online http://www.harrogatetheatre.co.uk/whatson.aspx


For more information please visit www.woodlandsdramagroup.co.uk or follow the group on twitter @woodlandsdrama.
