Skipton Town Hall are working in partnership with The Houghton Weavers; formed in 1975, they made their television debut in the BBC's talent show "We'll Call You". So successful were they that, within a couple of months they were given their own show "Sit Thi Deawn" which continued for six series over seven years and had the highest viewing figures for any regional T.V. programme.
As well as their own show the Weavers have appeared on many other national TV programmes for both BBC and ITV including "This Is Your Life" and "The Video Entertainers".
Six series on Radio 2 led the Weavers to appear with such notable artistes as Cannon & Ball, Ken Dodd, Rick Wakeman, Mike Harding, Billy Connolly, Phil Cool, Jasper Carrott, Norman Wisdom, Mick Miller and Stan Boardman amongst many others.
In their time together, the group - comprising Tony Berry, Steve Millington, David Littler and Jim Berry - have performed thousands of concerts, recorded over 30 albums, and starred in several of their own highly successful BBC radio and TV series.
The Houghton Weavers guarantee a wonderful evening of entertainment which is suitable for all the family. Their experience - together with their style and professionalism - ensures that, as their motto says, they always `Keep Folk Smiling`
