Village Hall Events

Tickets for events

Just a gentle reminder that if you are planning to come to a village hall event (and if you aren’t, you are missing out on a great night out J), then could you kindly let us know and book your place as soon as you can. When we are catering, it clearly helps to know in advance who is coming along, so we can prepare or buy the right amount of food and drink. We can also accept payment at the event rather than in advance, if you prefer.

Many thanks!

Coming next…

Friday 26 February –
Fish and Chips Supper and Games Night

Our fish and chip supper a few years ago was a great success. So we will be doing something similar on Friday 26 February but with the added bonus of having a games night. You know, playing the sort of games many us grew up with before Xbox and PlayStation dominated! Expect cards, dominoes and board game favourites. A chance also to play with our younger residents and show them that playing a board game with others is far more exciting than Candy Crush alone! All very welcome.

Tickets are £10 each and available from Jay Roberts on 680030. Event starts from 7.30pm.

Coming soon…

Friday 18 March – Celtic Night

After celebrating with the Scots to mark Burns Night, we turn our attention to Irish and Welsh culture on 18 March with our ever popular Celtic Night, the night before both teams take part in the final Six Nations rugby matches. Irish Stew will be on the menu. We start the Craic and Hwyl from 7.30pm.

Tickets are £10 each from Jay Roberts on 680030.

Friday 22 April – Fake Thackray

Folk legend Jake Thackray sadly passed away in 2002 but you can hear the next best thing in April when tribute performer Fake Thackray takes to the village hall `stage` to perform Jake’s songs.

It’s quite a coup to persuade John Watterson (aka Jake Thackray) to come and play for us on his current UK tour. In 2013 he appeared at the legendary Cropredy Festival

John first saw and met Jake in 1975. His interest in Jake’s music blossomed so much so that members of the Thackray family are now actively supporting John’s research to write a biography of the great man.

'We can't have Jake back but this is the next best thing - a real tribute' Mike Harding.

Tickets are £10 each and are available from Pat Crowther on 680705.

A 7.30pm for 8pm start.
