Two hour-long shows for the price of one, as comedians Bec Hill and Tiernan Douieb preview their Edinburgh Fringe shows for a Masham audience.
Bec Hill: Work in Progress Comedian, presenter and professional fool (profoolssional) Bec Hill brings us an hour of new (and old) material, including her superb and unique 'paper-puppetry'. Expect musings on technology, eggs and other awesome subjects. May contain pop-ups. Bec Hill: exuberant, daft and inventive The Scotsman There's something special about Bec Hill The Times
Tiernan Douieb: "Miserably Happy" An hour of political gags and nonsense musings from the 'opinionated yet likeable' (The Guardian) Tiernan Douieb. In this brand new show Tiernan considers whether ignorance is indeed bliss, and that if so surely he shouldn't know that. He then tries to work out what anyone actually wants anymore, what being civilised actually means, and whether or not he'll ever be able to persuade his wife to like raw tomatoes. Very friendly but fiercely political Time Out It's a really lovely show, really good. A really good show. Mark Thomas
Both of these shows will be 60 minutes of material being prepared and honed for the Edinburgh Fringe.
Tickets £8 from Masham Community Office on 01765-680200 or online here.

Filmed mostly in Masham and with many local people as supporting cast members, A Day in Summer is being shown on the big screen for the first time anywhere ever!
This 1989 ITV movie is adapted from J.L. Carr's novel and set not long after the second world war. Staid bank manager Peplow arrives in the small Yorkshire Dales town of Great Minden on the day of their annual "Feast". He chances to meet Herbert Ruskin, who used to be in the same RAF squadron. Ruskin, who lost his legs in a flying accident, spends his days looking out from his window, passing witty and cynical comments on the local folk. As the day wears on, it becomes clear that Peplow is in town for a very specific reason, and that it is no coincidence he has come on Feast Day.
The film stars Peter Egan, Jack Shepherd, John Sessions - and much of the population of Masham!
Tickets are £5 from Masham Community Office on 01765-680200.

The ever-popular North Country Theatre, now in their 21st year of rural touring, present a double dose of terrifying tales, one told tongue in cheek and one straight down the line!
"Oh, Whistle and I'll Come to You" is by M. R. James, and adapted by Nobby Dimon "The Signalman" is by Charles Dickens, and adapted by Simon Corble
Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon created the original hilarious adaptation of The 39 Steps which went on to be an international hit. Here they bring different approaches to the challenge of staging the supernatural.
Even the most sceptical, rational and scientific mind may have moments when something happens that seems to defy the laws of nature, when the wild landscapes of our dreams and nightmares seem to intrude on reality, when coincidence seems to be stretched to breaking point…
