Just a reminder that our opening day is the 20th April at 2.30 pm. Just pop along if you want to see if you are interested.

Quartet (12A) 13th April Bawdeswell Village Cinema

Our next film in the Village Hall is QUARTET 13th April 7:00 for 7:30 start.
A really great British comedy cast, (Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins and Michael Gambon) this is the kind of comedy that only the British can do. This is a first major Director role for Dustin Hoffman.
Based in a home for the mature, it has great fun with the problems of getting on in years interlinked with ‘Oh God, not you’ statements of ‘friends’ meeting again after many years.
