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.

This month we offer two events – THE VIRTUAL FILM CLUB Friday 12th November at 7.30 p.m THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON, available to watch free-of-charge on BBC I-player. Please e-mail us at cwfilmclub@mail.com to register your interest to take part in the discussion. We send you a set of screening notes and a link to the ZOOM discussion that’s been booked.

Our next event is on Friday 19th November, Chorleywood Memorial Hall, when we will be screening the recently released true-life spy thriller, The Courier (2021: Cert. 12: 112 mins).
It tells the story of an unassuming British businessman, Greville Wynne, who was recruited into one of the greatest international conflicts in history.

At the behest of the UK’s MI6 and a CIA operative, he forms a covert, dangerous partnership with Soviet officer Oleg Penkovsky, in an effort to provide crucial intelligence needed to prevent a nuclear confrontation and defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Directed by Dominic Cooke, the film stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel Brosnahan, Merab Ninidze & Jessie Buckley.

“As Cold War thrillers go, this is top class – tense and stressful to an almost unbearable degree.”
Matthew Bond, Mail on Sunday

Doors open at 7.30 p.m. and the programme begins at 8.00 p.m. Bar available.
