Whixley News - July 2019

Dear <<First Name>>

Hello everyone, and I hope you're enjoying the "variable" summer we are having. Just a few things to tell you about this month.

Note that this month's the newsletter is being sent out using software which allows me to include richer content in the email. Please make sure that your mail software is set to display images (which is often the default) and/or click the "add us to your address book" link in the footer of this email. 

Film Club in August

Despite plans to the contrary the next Whixley Film club night will be on Friday August 9th at 8:00pm in the Village Hall when will be showing My New Partner (Les Ripoux). Rene is a "ripou", a rotten cop who makes ends meet by accepting bribes, presents and free drinks from the people he should be putting in jail. When his partner retires, he must team up with Francois, a young police school graduate with a righteous attitude. He is hard to break and Rene has to trick him. What transpires is a charming comedy with a happy ending! Starring Philippe Noiret (star of Cinema Paradiso), Thierry Lhermitte, and Régine. 

You don't have to be a member of the film club to come along and give it a try. It's a social evening with a full bar service, and if you would like to join it's only £20 a year for as many films as you want to see. Click HERE for more information

Whixley Panto 2020 - your chance to star. 

Whixley Players are already planning their next blockbuster pantomime for February 2020. This year it’s Puss in Boots

Whixley pantos are renowned for their fun and laughter. They are also renowned for discovering new and hidden talent. Nervous people who have never acted before have loved it. 

We need about 3 more people this year to join our supportive and talented cast of about 15 players. This could be your chance to shine. You don’t need any experience and you are guaranteed to have a great time. We always welcome help behind the scenes too.

The first read through is on Sunday 15th September at 19:00.

If you’re interested in finding out more, our producer/ director would be delighted to hear from you. Absolutely no commitment at this stage.

You will have 30 days in which to do this, after which those numbers will be offered for resale to others. The first draw of the next period will be on October 31st.
