Film Club

The Village Hall Committee approached us to see if we would like to start a village film club. As film enthusiasts, we did not hesitate. We now show films once a month..

Initially we used our own rather ancient equipment but now that the hall has been equipped with a full size screen and excellent sound system the quality has improved markedly.

The films are shown on a Tuesday or Thursday evening at 8pm but the doors open at 7.30 for a drink from the bar before we get started. Entrance is by donation on the door at £3 per head.

Members can also buy entrance for 12 films for £24.

The programme is fixed on a seasonal basis and we keep members up to date by email. So, if you would like to join, just let us have your email.
