The Humshaugh Friday Film Nights are back after a Christmas break. On Friday January 13th Humshaugh Art Programme will be screening “The Chorus” at the Village Hall. It’s set in post World War II France at a school for orphaned and “difficult” boys. The school regime is very strict and disciplinarian but a new teacher tries to change all that through music. This fabulous French film with subtitles is a PG, suitable for 13 years and older. Food and drink will be available.

Tickets can be bought from us here at the Village Shop. You can pay just £5 to see the film (£2.50 for children), pay an extra £5 for food before the film and dessert in the interval or pay £1.50 extra if you’d only like the dessert. Drinks are available for a donation.

Doors open at 6.45pm. Supper’s served at 7.00 with the film starting at 7.30.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of our customers, volunteers and supporters. It’s been another brilliant year (our seventh). The outstanding highlight was the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service – The MBE for volunteer groups. Why not make it your New Year resolution for 2017 to join our happy band of volunteers. It’s been great to see more younger people getting involved. There are loads of ways in which you can help.

Mary and Max poster

The second film night of the new season on Friday November 11th 2016 features the bitter sweet animation “Mary and Max” (Cert 12). It’s a poignant and funny film dealing with serious issues in a very clever and stylish way. It’s about two very different pen pals whose lives span 20 years and stretch from Australia to New York. The narrator is Barry Humphries (Dame Edna).

The sleeve notes say “Mary and Max chronicles Mary’s trip from adolescence to adulthood, and Max’s passage from middle to old age and explores a bond that survives much more than the average friendship’s ups and downs. Both hilarious and poignant Mary and Max is a journey that explores friendship, autism, taxidermy, psychiatry, alcoholism, where babies come from, obesity, kleptomania, sexual differences, trust, copulating dogs, religious differences, agoraphobia and many more of life’s surprises.”

Doors open at 7.00 with the film starting at 7.30. Nibbles will be available free and, in the interval, you can choose from a range of desserts to buy. There will be a bar before the film and during the break.

Tickets are £5.00 for adults and £2.50 for children. Don’t forget Mary and Max has a 12 certificate.
