Friends of St Peter’s annual, Christmas Craft Fayre was held yesterday on the 19th November.
A whopping £1730 was raised on the day thanks to everyone who put so much effort into making it such a success; the villagers who set the hall up and decorated the hall and then cleared away, the cooks and the washer uppers, the stall holders, and to everyone who donated time, money and raffle prizes and of course the public who came to support us.
There is a new article and photographs on the ‘Nature Notes’ page by local resident Andy Smith.

Inspired by the gothic horror movies of the 1930’s – think Frankenstein, Dracula, haunted houses, mysterious moaning and creaky floorboards, daft scary music and magical illusion. ‘Is That a Bolt In Your Neck?’ is a fast-paced, rollicking ride mixing spooky paranoia, surreal nightmare and frantic farce. As lightning flashes across the sky, the rugged silhouette of an old dark house looms into view. Lost is a storm, this seems like the only possible refuge – but what happens when you hear mysterious moaning in the middle of the night? Behind every door lurks unimaginable horror…. This family show that is packed full of hilarious slapstick, verbal wit, live music and magical illusion. Featuring three fearless actors performing over 30 characters in just 75 minutes of action, an array of excellent props and daft puppets, you’ll gasp, laugh and be amazed at the horrific experiments, mind-boggling love and the sensational death-defying finale. ‘The cast and show were excellent. There was something for everyone . . . you really felt as though you were there in the creepy old house. The set was incredible. All in all excellent value for money’ Live & Local Audience Member ★★★★★ ‘Anarchic comedy theatre at its best’ Fringe Review Venue The Palace Community Centre, Ibstock Ibstock View map Visit company website Box office Palace Box Office 01530 262400 or http://www.thepalaceibstock.co.uk or firstname.lastname@example.org Ticket links Buy tickets online Additional info Licensed bar open from 7pm.
