Union Jill’s soaring songs and Kate Fox’s sharp satire are knitted together with a big, warm helping of down to earth Yorkshire daftness.

Letting off Steam is having a rant about the things that are wrong and celebrating the things that make life better, and it will be on stage at the Cheviot Centre next Thursday.

Union Jill is a female duo, renowned for their harmonies and well-crafted songs. They have played around the country, sharing their brand of humour and politics. Kate Fox is a poet, comedian, performer and writer, and a regular on Radio 4.

Alison Lloyd-Harris, chairman of the Glendale Festival Committee which organises the shows, said: “Our Highlights touring shows have a great following because they never fail to send us home with a buzz.

“They help us raise funds for the free festival we run in the town in July, and this year we are going for a two-day festival so we will be pulling out all the stops.”

Tickets cost £9, £8 concs, from the Cheviot Centre, online at highlightsnorth.co.uk or by ringing 01668 282406.
