Village Hall Events

Forthcoming Events

New Event – the Barbershop Trio: Quarto are here on Friday 15 November

We are fortunate to have secured Quarto to appear at the Village Hall on Friday 15 November. They have a varied and amusing act and are very popular. If you haven’t heard them yet, look them up on You-Tube, I’m sure that you’ll be entertained!

This gig and one other are the only appearances in Warwickshire this year so order your tickets now! Refreshments will be available and the doors will open at 7.30 for an 8.00pm start.

Many thanks to Roger Goodman for suggesting this event and for the work that he and Gill have put in to make it happen.

Tickets are available at £9 each from Gaynor van Dijk on 680349.

Another New Event – Wine Tasting – Saturday 30 November

We are pleased to announce this new event for the Village Hall which we think will be of interest to many of you with Christmas not far away!

The evening will be ‘hosted’ by Ian Smith who is a Director of Matthew Clark, the highly regarded Drinks Wholesaler and is the main buyer and negotiator for hundreds of their wines - he has an encyclopaedic mind for wines and their qualities. Ian will present a selection of 3 Reds and 3 Whites with some interesting stories about their production. There will also be some blind tasting to try and we will be looking for an Oxhill Christmas Champion!

Many thanks to Andy Buchanan for suggesting this event and for all of the work he has put in to bring it to fruition.

For this very special event we are restricting the numbers to around 30 and Tickets, which need to be bought in advance, are available at £7.50 each from Tricia Harbour on 680676 but please hurry as many have already been requested. The evening will start at 8.00pm.

Christmas Lunch – Monday, 9 December

Our traditional 3 course Christmas Lunch with wine for people 65 & over (and their partners, of any age) in the Village will be held at the Village Hall, starting at 12.30pm on Monday 9 December. In addition to the meal and drinks, we have Carols and accompaniment from the children of Tysoe School. Gaynor van Dijk is sending out invitations but if you know of anyone who is entitled to attend but has not received an invitation, please let Pat Crowther on 680705 know. Transport to and from the Village Hall will be available if needed.

Christmas Cocktails & Canapés followed by 60’s & 70’s Disco – Friday, 13 Dec

Our very successful Cocktail evening to celebrate the Christmas season, consisting of a variety of Canapés which can be washed down with some Bubbly, Cocktails or a glass of Beer takes place on Friday 13 December. The Hall will be specially decorated to reflect the season and appropriate mood music will be playing softly in the background for this special Posh Frocks & Black Tie (or suits) event.

At around 10.00pm, the mood will change, handbags will be placed on the floor to dance around and the music volume will go up as the Christmas 60’s & 70’s Disco starts up!

The price will be £12.50 per head and includes a selection of delicious canapés and 2 drinks. Additional drinks will be available and the evening will start at 8.00pm. This is a great way to start the Christmas season and meet up and socialise with your friends.
