Our film in June: on Tuesday, June 25th, we are showing Wonka! “Armed with nothing but a hatful of dreams, young chocolatier Willy Wonka manages to change the world, one delectable bite at a time. When his dream business gets destroyed, he's down in the dumps for a bit. But gradually, he gets back to work, and is soon able to continue doing the thing he loves most.” Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30 start. Tickets £7 from the Library and the Peephole in the High Street. Refreshments, including ice cream, will be available.

Our July art exhibition: there will be paintings from local artists, Michelle Kilby and Mary Fowler, in our refreshment area. Have a morning coffee while you view.
