What’s on in July and August at Lurgashall Village Hall

July-Aug 2019First of all, you may notice there are no film nights in July and August. We’re taking a short break during the summer holidays, but don’t worry – *FILM NIGHT* will resume on Wed, 2nd October with a great new programme of monthly movies.

This year’s most exciting new village project has been, of course, the wonderful VILLAGE HALL EXTENSION, and if you haven’t already done so, you’ll have a great opportunity to explore inside at the *VILLAGE HALL A.G.M.* on Tuesday, July 9th at 7pm.

In the meantime, we hope your Green Fingers are busy tending your gorgeous exhibits for our 36th Annual *HORTICULTURAL CLUB SHOW* on Saturday, 17th August. Entry schedules are available from The Village Shop.


Happy Summer, everyone!

Pilates for All – July Classes at Lurgashall Village Hall

Pilates position

 

Local Pilates teacher Eliza Wheeler is running a flourishing Pilates class at Lurgashall Village Hall every Monday at 7.15pm.

July dates are: Mon. 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th July. 

Eliza says: “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.”

If you would like to join the classes or have any questions, please contact Eliza on 07929 365088 or email eliza.wheeler@hotmail.co.uk .

Film Night – “First Man” – Wed. 1 May 2019

Fifty years ago this July, astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first person to set foot on the moon.

To celebrate this historic event, we are proud to be showing ‘First Man’, which tells the story of Neil Armstrong (played by Ryan Gosling) and the work of the NASA space programme in the decade leading up to the moon landing.

Based on the book by James R. Hansen, the film explores the triumphs and the cost on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues, and the nation itself for one of the most dangerous missions in history.

Film Night – “Breathe” – Wed. 3 April 2019

Andy Serkis’s directorial debut about the life of pioneering polio survivor Robin Cavendish is heartwarming and heartbreaking in equal measure.

Part exuberant love story, part great escape adventure, this is an old-fashioned tale of triumph over adversity that refuses – like its protagonists – to succumb to confinement. This is a true story and stars Andrew Garfield as Robin, Claire Foy as his wife, with Tom Hollander and Hugh Bonneville in support. 

Peter & Amanda Worrall were one-time neighbours of the Cavendish family and knew Robin well.  They have kindly agreed to tell us a little about Robin at the start of the film.

Lurgashall Village Hall – Wed. 3 April
Tickets £5 on the door. Doors and Bar open 7pm for 7.30pm start
