Film night success!
Thank you to everyone who attended our inaugural film night (Mary Poppins Returns) on May 10th.
We had around 40 people in attendance and we served snacks and drinks prior to the performance, which added to the overall “cinematic” feel of the evening. Thank you to the WI for the loan of the screen, which in combination with the Blu Ray quality of the film and the speaker system employed, ensured that everyone had a clear view and sharp sound through the show. We generated a small profit once we had paid for the licensing of the film, but this event was all about making a trip to the cinema accessible to the whole village community in our much loved village hall. The generous round of applause at the end of the showing gave the whole night a rather cosy feel, like we had shared something special with good friends.
Thank you to those who completed the questionnaire after the film, the feedback was very constructive and all comments and suggestions were welcomed and will be acted upon!
We will discuss putting on another show at our next meeting and will let everyone know when/if it is going ahead, in the usual manner (emails/website/leaflets).
Watch this space!
Forthcoming events planned for 2019
Autumn Fun Show – September 7th
Christmas Bazaar – December 7th
If possible, we would also like to run an “Auction of Promises” in 2019 to raise some more funds for the village hall. If you know of anyone who would like to contribute a prize or donation, please email us with the details (firstname.lastname@example.org).
