The North East Recorder Orchestra is performing at Humshaugh Village Hall tomorrow afternoon (Saturday March 4th). You can get your tickets from the shop. The concert begins at 2.30 and, during the interval, tea and cakes will be served. The orchestra performs with a huge range of recorders in all sorts of shapes and sizes, not just the regular descant size that we all remember from our schooldays.
There will also be a photographic exhibition featuring images of local musicians.
Tickets are £5 (£2.50 for children). Tea or coffee and cake costs just £1.50. Tickets can also be bought on the door.
The event has been organised by HAP, the Humshaugh Arts Programme.
The Post Office van was involved in an accident in Acomb on Monday morning February 27th and will be out of action indefinitely. If you need to check before setting off to the Village Hall, the Stocksfield Post Office number is 01661 842110. Early estimates were that it would be several days at least before it’s repaired.
The talk by Liesbeth Langford at The George Hotel on Monday evening February 27th has had to be postponed. It will be rescheduled for later in the year but, in the meantime, you can get a refund if you bought your tickets in advance. Humshaugh Publications will announce the new date as soon as it is fixed.
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.
