Legend of the folk music world; singer, songwriter, guitarist, charismatic entertainer… dubbed “the First Lady of Folk” by the Times… the first folk singer to have her own TV show, to fill the Royal Albert Hall, to sing in Westminster Abbey… is coming to North Curry in 2019.
She is giving a concert at the Village Hall on Saturday 6th April.
Doors (and bar) open at 7:00pm, with the concert beginning at 7:30pm. Julie will give two 45-minute sessions, separated by an interval (with bar). The bar will re-open for Julie’s “meet & greet” and CD sale & signing following her second session.
Tickets will be £12 each, available from 1st March, at the Post Office, from Fleur White (01823 491424), or – depending on availability – at the door.
Demand will be high, so advance reservations will be accepted from January onwards.
As part of their initiative to increase the visibility of local policing, our two Community Support Officers, Dave Rowe and Claire Escott are using the Village Hall as a “Police Hub” on an occasional basis.
They are, from time to time, working in the Meeting Room or the Games Room, and are very happy for anyone to drop on them unannounced– to raise queries or concerns of any nature, or simply to have a chat.
The nature of their duties means that they will not be operating to a fixed schedule, but their presence is signalled by their marked police car in the Village Hall car park.
Please feel free to introduce yourselves to them. The quality of the service they offer to the community depends largely on how many local people that they know, and on the extent of their local knowledge.
Argyle Productions at North Curry
Our next production is our most ambitious yet. Having done two years of Pantomimes, this year we are embarking on a production that will test all of the cast....and director!
The people of North Curry and surrounding areas have been very supportive and so we hope they will be even keener to come and see this one.
But first we need a cast and so we have auditions on Sunday, 2nd September at 2pm and Wednesday, 5th September at 7pm. Both will be held at the Williams Hall, Stoke St Gregory. We have already had some new interest to join the show but there are lots of parts to cast and chorus to be had. So whether you act, sing, dance, all three or none, and want to have fun, we are the group for you. Our existing membership ranges in age from 8 – 80 years, so age is no barrier.
Show dates are 18th to 23rd February 2019. Rehearsals nights are Wednesdays (for principals) and Friday (everybody).
If being on stage is not your thing but you would still like to be involved there is always lots to do off stage too. So if you are interested in either being in the show or helping please come along or contact me on the number below.
