Return to In-Person Events
We are pleased to announce that after 18 months of Coronavirus induced absence, this October we are returning to in-person events at the War Memorial Hall.
As the safety of our audience and volunteers is of paramount importance, we are adopting the Government’s Covid safety advice for indoor events. We are limiting the number of people who can attend by implementing an advance ticket sales only policy and spacing the Hall’s seating to enable social distancing.

Our re-opening event on Saturday 2nd October is a special session showcasing and celebrating the film-making talents of local 7-18 year-olds who have entered short films in our 2021 Mini Movie Makers and Young Filmmakers Competitions. All this year’s entries will be shown and our judging panel of film industry professionals (Graham Ralph, Rosie Baldwin & Eleanor Dolan) will be on hand, along with Martin Clarkson, our MC for the afternoon, to present awards to the winners.
The session begins at 2.00 p.m.
Entry to this ever popular session is free of charge but anyone wishing to attend who is not part of a Competition entrants invited party, must register with us beforehand at email@example.com so that we can control the number of people attending in line with the Covid safety measures in operation.
Then on Friday 15th October we resume the Club’s monthly screening programme with the 2021 Oscar and BAFTA award winning, Nomadland (2020: Cert, 12: 103 mins) starring Frances McDormand.
Following the closure of the main employer in the Nevada town she calls home, an older woman (Fern) packs her van and sets off on the road.
Exploring an unconventional life as a modern-day nomad, Fern discovers a resilience and resourcefulness unlike any she has known before. Along the way, she meets other nomads who become mentors in the vast landscape of the American West. Directed by Chloé Zhao, the film also stars David Strathairn and features real-life nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells.
Doors open at 7.30 p.m. and the programme begins at 8.00 p.m. Bar available.
