Message from Nick Foster, Festival Chairman – “This year’s festival again has something for everyone – and everyone is welcome”.
On Friday 6 October at 7.30p.m. in the Village Hall we have the Common Ground Theatre Company with a new play “The Hellgate Club” ( £14 from www.wegottickets.com/event/586171) Written by Pat Whymark with live music by Julian Harris this murder mystery( based on a true story) is set in Paris in 1905. Several men – all unconnected – have disappeared in the notorious Pigalle area. Super sleuth Jean Tellier is called out of retirement to solve the case….Common Ground are famous for madcap comedies. This might be different?
On Saturday afternoon (7 October 2.00-4.00 p.m.) Debutots are providing a magical entertainment for children aged up to 7 with story-telling, singing and dancing. It is FREE and should be a lot of fun.
