We are delighted to announce that Paul Handyside has been confirmed as support for the Chastity Brown show on Saturday 29 September. Paul is a folk and roots singer songwriter. His song writing style has been compared to artists as varied as Chris Difford, Billy Bragg, Robyn Hitchcock, Green Gartside, Elvis Costello, Jeff Buckley and Martin Carthy.
He began his musical career with eighties indie darlings Hurrah! The jangle pop band had album releases on Kitchenware and Arista Records from 1982 to 1991 and toured extensively worldwide. During the nineties he toured and recorded with friend and Kitchenware labelmate Martin Stephenson.
Due to personal circumstances the White Ribbons are unable to play tonight. We are delighted to announce that, at short notice, Henry Parker has joined the bill. Henry is a stunning guitar player and skilled songwriter and was a big success on his last appearance at the venue. Also on the bill is Serious Sam Barrett – one of the most highly rated songwriters around. All in all a great evening of entertainment featuring the very best of local talent.
Due to unforeseen circumstances Pete Williams will now be bringing his critically acclaimed 2 man show to the mill this Saturday rather than the full band. The show, described by The Guardian as “warm, welcoming and contemplative”, is ideally suited to the intimacy of the venue and it will be a great evenings entertainment. Support comes from Bradford’s own The Last Minute. Ticket prices are now £12 on the door to with advance tickets at £10.
If you have already booked an advance ticket, don’t worry, we will refund the difference on the night.
We are delighted to announce that following high demand Kiki Dee and Carmelo Luggeri – An Acoustic Journey will be appearing at the mill on Sunday 11 November in addition to the Saturday show the previous day.
Tickets are now on sale and are available from our on line ticket partners Skiddle.
Regrettably we have had to cancel the appearance of Foxes Faux on Saturday 24 March 2018. This is to enable us to carry out essential maintenance and refurbishment to the stage and performance area. We are hoping to announce a revised date for the show in the near future.
We are delighted to announce that Kiki Dee will be playing her first Bradford show for a number of years when she appears at the Mill on Saturday 10 November 2018.
For almost two decades, Kiki has been working with her musical partner Carmelo Luggeri and have been touring their spellbinding acoustic live show across the UK and Europe. Performing in this stripped back fashion allows each of their exceptional talents to shine through and create a wonderful and warm sense of intimacy for the audience.
Tickets are on sale at an advance price of £21.00.
Saturday 10 March 2018 sees the Black Dyke Mills Heritage Venue’s first foray into the world of theatre when we present Spotty Sock’s production of John Godber’s Teechers.
Spotty Socks is Codswallops’ (a charity that nurtures local talent and inspires the next generation of creative thinkers) very own Theatre Company which works hard to prepare budding actors for a professional life in the Theatrical industry. Spotty Socks produce full scale productions of relevant plays in a contemporary manner, engaging wider audiences to the world of theatre.
Teechers features three school leavers, Salty, Hobby and Gail Saunders and their account of their time in secondary school. The play, as is all of Godber’s work, is entertaining, moving and thought-provoking.
Independent Venue Week is a 7 day celebration of small music venues around the UK and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out. The Black Dyke Mills Heritage Venue is proud to part of this great event that brings together venues up and down the country in a celebration of all that is good about the live music scene.
We have two great gigs lined up. Friday 02 February sees the return of Ego States with support from Low Lanes. Ego States will be travelling up the road from Brighouse with their incisive melodies, sharp lyrics and unerring rhythmic sensibility. In lead singer and guitarist George Jenkins, they have a songwriter of rare talent. Think Arctic Monkeys meet The Beatles via a bit of Bowie.
As if that was not enough, Saturday 03 February sees the return of Roger Davies and his band with support from Magdalen Bath. Roger is no stranger to the Mill and we are delighted to welcome him back. Expect songs from his new album along with old favourites.
We have some really exciting music coming up at the Mill in the next few months.
On Saturday 27th January we welcome the wonderful My Darling Clementine as part of their European tour. Husband and wife duo, Michael Weston King & Lou Dalgleish, will be playingsongs from their latest album – Still Testifying – one of 6 Music’s best albums of 2017. Saturday 24 March sees Foxes Faux make their debut at the mill. Virgin Music (no less) describe them as; “Magical and wonderful – melodic covers & fast paced atmospheric vibes”, and who are we to argue.
On Saturday 21 April, the Rob Dylan Band make a welcome return. The UK’s finest Dylan tribute band made a massive impression when they played last year and we are delighted to welcome them back. Then, on Saturday 19 May, Roger Davies and his Band, make their second appearance of the year to celebrate the launch of their new album. Roger is an old favourite at the mill and this promises to be a special evening.
Later in the year we have Laurel Canyon Union on the 09 June, Miles Gilderdale on 07 July, Dave Nachmanoff (all the way from California USA!) on 13 October and Winter Wilson on 24 November.
More exciting acts are currently being added – watch this space!
