The Ribble – Canal Boat Turned Theatre

This week we paid a visit to The Ribble – a canal boat that has been turned into a theatre.

It was docked at Rodley to allow media on board for previews, interviews, photo opportunities and filming, so we hung out with BBC Look North, the cast, and crew and took some pics.

‘This Island’s Mine’ is on tour up the Aire Valley with its grand finale in Skipton. Here are the dates:

Saturday 18th September:  Salts Mill, Saltaire – 12pm, 2pm & 4pm

Sunday 19th September:  Dowley Gap near Bingley/Ferncliffe – 2pm & 4pm

Monday 20th September: Riddlesden, Keighley – 6pm & 8pm
