Past events:

Spring Cinema night –       Paddington 2 – March 17th

This film lived up to its billing as “A delightful sequel to will charm audiences of all ages”. Despite, or maybe because of  blizzard conditions, we still had a good turnout for this event .

The film really does have something for everyone – hysterical sometimes but really sad too in places.

Having an afternoon event worked well and encouraged families to attend. The feel in the hall was lovely. We will definitely try for the same formula again and hope that we manage to scoop a similar just released film for the next showing.

Nottingham Concert Band returns to St Swithun’s Church in Woodborough (NG14 6DA) on Saturday 19 May with ‘Memories’, an evening of music chosen to reflect special times, places and people.
Band members, friends and families have all contributed ideas for the programme, which includes favourites selected by Conductor & Music Director Robert Parker to mark his 25th season on the podium. ‘I’m really looking forward to sharing our latest show-stopping medleys, light classics and swing-band tributes,’ he says. ‘But we’ll also be playing some more contemplative numbers which I’m sure will strike a chord with the audience.’

‘Memories’ starts at 7.30pm and is in aid of St Swithun’s Church. Tickets (£8 or £4 for under-16s) include interval refreshments and are available from Terry Robinson (0115 965 2396) or Jean Bush (0115 965 2195) and from the SPAR shop/Post Office on Main Street in Woodborough.

There are tickets available for two very contrasting concerts being put on by Warthog Promotions in April. Wednesday 11th April sees the appearance of Joe Newberry and April Verch at the Old Ship Inn, featuring banjo, fiddle and step-dancing! Joe Newberry grew up in a family full of singers and dancers. He took up the guitar and banjo as a teenager and learned fiddle tunes from great Missouri fiddlers. April Verch grew up listening to her Dad’s country band play for dances in the Ottawa Valley. She started step dancing at age three and fiddling at age six.

Two days later, blues rock comes to the Village Hall when Sari Schorr and the Engine Room take to the stage.  Sari’s album ‘A Force of Nature’ has been described as, “A hailstorm of an album sure to go down in blues history” by Blues Rock Review. Maximum Volume Music has given the album a 10/10 and exclaims, “The quality of the record frequently touches jaw-dropping. Sari Schorr & the Engine Room have just made one of the blues records of the year.”
