Village Hall Events

Coming next… 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.

Coming soon… Another Big Breakfast?

Our first village breakfast was a great success with over 40 people descending on the village hall to take breakfast at different times during the morning of Saturday 30 January, so much so that we are considering making this a regular fixture three or four times a year!

The event had a real community feel, helped by cosy settees, and great organisation and cooking skills from committee members. Thank you Jay for organising it so brilliantly! Watch this space…

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.

7.30pm for an 8pm start.

Wednesday 27 April – Village Hall AGM

It’s that time of year again when we invite you, over wine, to hear what your village hall committee has achieved for Oxhill over the past 12 months. We elect a new committee and we are always on the lookout for new members to join us.

Committee participation is good fun if you enjoy helping to organise or could contribute to our lively events programme, as part of our friendly team. Plus we are always open to new ideas and ways of working to develop and improve this key village asset.

Come and find out more or just come and hear what we have been doing.

7.30pm with an 8pm start for the AGM.
