TICKETS NOW ON SALE: 84 Charing Cross Road

CHARING CROSS ROAD POSTERYou can now buy your tickets for Haslingfield Little Theatre’s latest production: 84 Charing Cross Road, which is being performed on 15, 16 and 17 May at 7.45 p.m. at Haslingfield Village Hall.

This wonderful, warm, moving play follows the true correspondence between an outspoken and wise-cracking New York writer (Helene Hanff), and a rather more staid and proper antiquarian bookseller in London (Frank Doel); this contrasting couple being drawn together through their mutual love of literature. The play spans a twenty-year period – from 1949 post-war Britain to the end of the “swinging sixties”.

Tickets are £8 each / £5 concessions (no concessions Sat.) and are available at Haslingfield Village Shop, at Haslingfield Country Kitchen, and at: or on 01223 872007.

166cAn article on our retired Parish Clerk Janet Hendy appeared in C&V previously.  Janet has been a mainstay of HPC proceedings for eleven years and will be a hard act to follow.  Existing and previous councillors and others attended a farewell gathering at the Chairman’s house on 28th February 2014.   Our thanks go to Mike Hendy too who has been so helpful behind the scenes over the years and continues to volunteer for more.
