We at Gargrave Village Hall are so sad to hear of the death of our Queen. We have lowered the flag at the Hall to half mast and as a mark of respect we have cancelled the Picnic Supper dance which was due to have been held on Friday evening. This event will be re-scheduled for Friday 7th October and The Silhouette band will be providing the live music.

We held a Collectable and Craft Fair in the Hall on Sunday and had a Condolence book which was provided by Gargrave Parish Council. There were many tributes and messages left, many from visitors who were so grateful that they could leave messages of sympathy whilst they were away from home. The Condolence book is now back in the library where messages may be left during their opening hours on Tuesday and Saturday mornings and Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons.

The first film of the Autumn season will be shown by Gargrave Cinema club on Friday evening the 16th September. 7.p.m for 7.30.p.m. The Duke is a 2020 British comedy drama dealing with the true story of the 1961 theft of the Portrait of the Duke of Wellington from a London Gallery. It features Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren in the title roles. The customary Cafe style seating will be in place so please bring your own refreshments. Tickets are £5.00 on the door.

The Hall will be completely closed on Monday 19th September.
