Readathon 2019

Friday 22 Feb from 10am to 3 pm

Readathon

A mixture of story-telling and crafts, this year based on the books of Julia Donaldson.

Zog is the keenest dragon in school. He’s also the most accident-prone. Luckily, a mysterious little girl always comes by and patches up his bumps and bruises. But will she be able to help him with his toughest test: capturing a princess?

No registration necessary for this free event. Come for the morning or the afternoon.

South Pacific

Friday 1 March at 7.30pm: South Pacific

The popular movie from 1958 based on the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical of the same name. On a South Pacific island during World War II, love blooms between a young nurse and a secretive Frenchman who’s being courted for a dangerous military mission.

With fabulous songs including “Some Enchanted Evening”, “Bali Ha’i” and  “Younger than Springtime”, the movie won three Oscars including Best Musical Score and was nominated by the AFI as one of the Greatest Movie Musicals.

Tickets on sale about a month before. A suggested donation of £5 gets you refreshments and a raffle ticket

Monsters Inc

Saturday 2 March at 2pm: Monsters Inc

In another success from Pixar we follow the adventures of James P. “Sulley” Sullivan and Mike Wazowski, two monsters who, in order to power the city, have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, they realise things may not be what they think. John Goodman, Billy Crystal and Steve Buscemi provide voices.

No need to book — just turn up. Suggested donation £3 adults, £2 children. Ice creams and refreshments available.
