Hidden Figures tells the incredible untold story of Katherine Jonson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) – brilliant African-American women working at NASA who served as the brains behind the launch into orbit of astronaut John Glenn, a stunning achievement that turned around the Space Race. The visionary trio crossed all gender and racial line and inspired generations.

The year is 1926, and Newt
Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and
document an extraordinary array of magical creatures.
Arriving in New York for a brief
stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a
No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and
the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both
the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
You don’t have to be a Harry Potter fan to enjoy this magical fantasy with incredible special effects and a gripping story. Come and be amazed!

We are delighted to announce that Pilates teacher Eliza Wheeler is restarting Monday evening Pilates at Lurgashall Village Hall in January.
Eliza says: “I look forward to welcoming back those who attended last time, and I would love to invite people who are yet to try it out (a great New Year’s Resolution!).
“As a Physiotherapist I think Pilates is a wonderful form of exercise, and everyone can benefit from it in some way. The focus is on strengthening up the ‘core’ – improving strength centrally makes the bits on the outside function better! We also work on flexibility, balance and posture. The benefits of regular Pilates include not only toning legs, bums and tums, but also helping to reduce and prevent back pain.
“Ultimately, it should be fun, and I hope at the end of the class you walk out feeling refreshed and happy.”
The classes start on Monday 7th January 2019 at 7.15pm (please note start time)
A glimpse into the relationship between beloved children’s author A. A. Milne and his son Christopher Robin, whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh.
Having been wounded at the Battle of the Somme in 1916, Alan Alexander Milne is invalided back to London where he is recruited to write propaganda articles for MI7. He and his wife Daphne have a son, Christopher Robin (nicknamed Billy), and in 1925, the family moves from London to East Sussex, where Alan settles down to writing plays, poems and books.
His wanderings with his young son in the Ashdown Forest near their home, and their play-acting with Billy’s toy animals become the inspiration for a series of Milne’s books whose enchanting tales bring hope and comfort to post-war England – and become among the most-loved and most sold children’s books ever written.
