HASLINGFIELD LITTLE THEATRE’S SPRING PRODUCTION – Tickets on Sale now

 On 20 & 21 May, Haslingfield Little Theatre will be performing their Spring Production: Two Coarse Plays with a Two Course Meal.  The two hilarious plays are:
Trapped, which is based on a country house thriller 
Pride at Southanger Park, a romance set in Regency times

And, of course,  in true coarse acting spirit, everything that can go wrong does go wrong within both plays!

Tickets are now on sale at Haslingfield Village Shop and the Little Rose pub. They cost £12, and include a two-course meal. The audience will be grouped around tables of 8 people, so you can either buy tickets for yourselves, or why not gather together some friends and book a whole table for what promises to be a very entertaining evening!

Haslingfield & Harston Folk Dance Club

New members always welcome for a fun evening of dancing, a bit like a barn dance. We usually meet on Tuesdays between 8pm and 10pm every month (except July and August) at either Haslingfield or Harston Village Hall.  It costs just £1 per evening.

It doesn’t matter if you have never done it before, our expert callers stand on the stage and tell us all what to do. New members are always welcome, and you do not need to live in the villages. You do not need to bring a partner. We just come to have fun – we do not take “getting it right” very seriously.

All the dance dates are in the calendar. For more information, click here or phone Clive on (01223) 870741.
