We promote touring theatre companies, music ensembles, solo performers (poetry, music, comedy, etc.). These events are well attended so please book early to be sure of a seat.
We also arrange occasional trips to local theatres where a particular show or performance appeals to group members.

We show a good selection of films... action, drama, biopic etc. in English and foreign languages. There are films which appeal to all age groups.
Our state-of-the-art equipment fills the Reading Room with sound, providing a great cinema experience.

We show a variety of children's films in the Reading Room, usually on a Sunday afternoon during the winter months. The event starts with an optional activity related to the film (games, craft, etc.) then the children can relax on a beanbag with a drink and a snack and enjoy the film!
Why children's films? The idea is to allow children and young people to experience the joy of cinema in the village by giving them the opportunity to watch films in a friendly setting, socialise with their friends and take part in an activity related to the film. We also feel it is important to show a wide variety of films not currently on offer in local cinemas (such as Japanese animation, independent films, etc.), making sure these film showings are accessible to all.
