New improvised arts project for Ryedale, North Yorkshire

First event: 'Up to the hilt' Tuesday 12 November 9:35am, Alan Tomlinson in Brawby sewer discharge gutter.

The exciting new arts venue and tourist attraction in Ryedale, North Yorkshire. A conduit and channel for the collaborative arts, The Sewer utilises the scenic and sonic backdrop of Yorkshire Water’s Sewage Treatment Works in the tiny village of Brawby to present a multifaceted series of improvised art events to a world-wide audience.

The Sewer is overflowing with music, films and artistic interventions, backed-up by contributions from Award-Winning comedian Stewart Lee, and internationally renowned musicians Billy Jenkins, Matthew Bourne, Oren Marshall, Stanley Bad, Alan Tomlinson, Kit Downes and Mark Sanders.

Inaugural event: Tuesday 12 November 2013 at 09:35am in Brawby sewer discharge gutter. Up To The Hilt - Alan Tomlinson’s sewer solo.

The inimitable and peerless master trombonist, Alan Tomlinson will be ‘up to the hilt’ in the mire of discharge from Brawby’s Yorkshire Water sewer. Alan has previously performed a duet with the River Seven in Rosedale and played ‘tunas’ on the Fish and Chip Van Tour (seen by an audience of 1.9 million on the Richard & Judy Show). One of Europe’s most exciting improvising musicians, this is his worst gig for sewer. More..

“The missing link between Schoenberg and Vic Reeves.” Joe Muggs, Arts Desk “He can make the trombone sound like frustrated elephants courting or like the finish at Brands Hatch.” Melody Maker

All the events in The Sewer are free but donations can be made to WaterAid – WaterAid works in 27 countries worldwide, transforming millions of lives every year with safe water, sanitation and hygiene projects.
