Film Society

A new venture under the life-long learning auspice.

We have invested in suitable equipment to be able to project films to an audience of up to 80 people in the comfortable traditional environment of a rural cinema.


Membership entitles the owner to a programme of six monthly screenings over the winter, the emphasis being on classic films with an aesthetic and cultural resonance.

Each screening will be preceded by a 5 minute talk explaining some of the context and background of the film's production and encouraging the audience to develop a critical awareness of this vibrant art form.

Short films may be added to the programme during the season.   There will be opportunity for a short debate after the screening for those wanting to take part.

Membership includes a tea/coffee at the beginning of the evening.

Entrance is strictly by membership card £25 paid for at the start of the season (due to film licensing we cannot sell tickets at the door)  but members can bring in one guest each per screening at a cost of £5 (as long as there are seats free). Membership numbers may be restricted due to the maximum size of the hall.

 For a membership form please email Adrian Holden.
