Culture Train heads to Beverley
A unique Culture Train is heading to Beverley again later this month, with a carriage full of musicians who will be playing a free concert in St Mary’s Church. The idea, launched last year during Hull City of Culture, sees musicians boarding a train in Hull with just the instruments they can carry and heading to a series of locations throughout the East Riding.
With support from East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Northern Rail and East Yorkshire Motors Services, who provide buses for those destinations not served by trains, the Culture Train pulls into Beverley on Saturday June 30th for the concert at St Mary’s, which will start at 7pm.
Chris Warkup, of Quiet Riot Arts, who has organised the events, told Beverley FM: “This is a great opportunity to promote Hull music outside of the city, bringing talented musicians to the village pub, a church or railway station and offers a chance to see great local music within your community. Hopefully this could lead to further events in the future.”
The Beverley concert features four acts: The Happy Endings, the Quicksilver Kings, Elwhaeko and headliners Pavey Ark.
