Gargrave and Malhamdale Community Library will be celebrating the words and music of Bruce Springsteen on Friday evening ( 28th January ) when they show the film Blinded by the Light. The feel good film portrays the uplifting coming of age of a British Muslim boy growing up in 1980`s Luton who learns to live life and understand his family through the words and music of Bruce Springsteen. The customary Cafe style seating will be in place, so please bring along your own refreshments. The Village Hall doors open at 7.p.m with the film starting at 7.30.p.m. Tickets are £5.00 on the door.

The bargains are back! Sheila from Broadway Fairs will be holding her first Flea Market and Craft Fair of 2022 on Sunday. There are lots of different stalls booked in selling Collectables, Bric a Brac, Crafts, Jewellery, Jigsaws, and Books. Fund raising charity stalls include the Cats protection League and Manorlands. Refreshments are available from 10.a.m until 3.p.m.  50p admission on the door.

Plans for celebrating the Queens Platinum Jubilee at the Village Hall are now finalised. A right Royal Coffee morning will be held on Friday 3rd June and this will incorporate a display of both Village and Royal Memorabilia. A regal afternoon tea with live music will be held on Sunday 5th June. Andy Wiseman will be singing popular and iconic songs from the 1950`s through to the present day. Anyone knowing Andy will know there will be a Neil Diamond song somewhere in the mix! We have asked Andy to choose his four most popular personal songs and the audience will be asked to vote for their favourite one of these which he will then perform in his finale. A homemade afternoon tea will be served in the interval. Admission is just £10.00 per person but please tickets must be pre booked by phoning 01756 749235 or Booking is now open.

Sandwiched between the two events will be one of the Village Halls book fairs which will be held on the Saturday.
