    Join The Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse for a “Step into Spring”, a new exhibition of paintings which is sure to lift you out of the winter gloom. It opens on Saturday 10th February and features new work by four popular artists. Headlining the show is a large selection of new work by Brighouse artist Neville Fleetwood. Local artist Neville’s work is featured alongside artists Clare Haley, Angela Bell and Catherine McGrath. Famed Brighouse artist Neville Fleetwood’s contemporary paintings demonstrate a strong, bold use of colour and vibrancy which are developed by applying layer upon layer. He is particularly well known for his still life paintings, mostly of floral arrangements and Yorkshire landscapes which are full of atmosphere, with patchwork fields arranged into vivid abstract designs. His contemporary paintings have created an impressive following and he has won many major art awards. Angela Bell from Hull returns to the gallery with her highly decorative paintings depicting New York scenes and a series themed around women. Clare Haley has new paintings of the moorland hills in her popular dramatic style . Catherine McGrath’s work is based on the mills and industrial buildings of West Yorkshire. She moulds the buildings into fascinating patterns. The exhibition is free to enter and runs for 6 weeks.

    19th - 24th February By Amanda Whittington, directed by Jenny Gore Be My Baby is an uplifting tale of hope, friendship and survival, with a swinging sixties soundtrack! Set in 1964, it follows the fortunes of Mary Adams, aged 19, unmarried and seven months pregnant. Mary ends up in a Mother and Baby Home, in the north of England, where she meets other young women in a similar predicament. Despite the dawning realisation that their babies are to be given up for adoption, the girls’ youthful exuberance breaks through, as they sing along to the songs of the period – by girl groups such as the Ronettes, and the Shangri-Las.
