Yorkshire Dialect Day – Keighley Local Studies Library, Saturday July 30th
An extravaganza celebrating all things Yorkshire Dialect – the schedule will include the following:
– Talk by Ian Stevenson of the Yorkshire Dialect Society, explaining what Yorkshire dialect is, from early times to the present day, perhaps answering the question whether it is dying out or simply changing.
– Chairman of the Yorkshire Dialect Society, Rod Dimbleby, will be telling recounting the life and work of the remarkable Halifax dialect scholar, writer, poet and editor John Hartley.
– YDS’s highly entertaining master of raconteur and bonhomie, Eric ‘Bloodaxe’ Scaife, will be retelling traditional Yorkshire dialect humour, in prose and verse.
There will also be an exhibition in the Local Studies Library of the work and life of Ian Dewhirst (1936-2019), celebrated local historian, dialect poet and storyteller.
