Red Joan - Certificate 12a - Running Time 101 minutes

Joan Stanley (Judi Dench) is a widow living out a quiet retirement in the suburbs when, shockingly, the British Secret Service places her under arrest.

The charge: providing classified scientific information - including details on the building of the atomic bomb - to the Soviet government for decades.

As the interrogation gets underway, Joan relives the dramatic events that shaped her life and her beliefs.

The end credits reveal that Red Joan is loosely based on the real life case of Civil Servant Melita Norwood (1912 - 2005). She successfully passed classified information about the British Atomic program to the Russians in the 1940's & 50's.

This was only discovered in 1992 by which time the Ministry of Defence declined to prosecute the then 80 year old.

An Evening with Charlie Waite at Buckhorn Weston

World renowned landscape photographer, Charlie Waite has been an advocate of ‘the photograph’ and the importance of engaging with the landscape through photography for over 30 years. Charlie proves through his own photography, the magical creative endeavor of his relationship with the natural world and how this transcends into a permanent record of beauty and the utmost respect for the world around him. His photographs are said to convey a quality of spirituality and calm and have an almost painterly quality.

Charlie conducts his talks with passion, humour and grace, and takes the audience on colourful and enchanting journey. Highly illustrated, his talks are enjoyable, uplifting and memorable with many finding inspiration to explore the natural world further embarking on their own personal journey with or without a camera.

In his talk 'Behind the Photograph', Charlie reveals the thought processes and the techniques behind each image, binding them into stories and sharing the anxieties and the joys which accompany their creation.

Join Charlie at Buckhorn Weston for this special event. The talk will begin at 7.00pm, please ensure you are at the venue by 6.45pm.  The event will finish at 9.00pm.  Light refreshments will be available.

Address: The Village Hall, Buckhorn Weston, Gillingham SP8 5HF

Chicago (High School Edition)

This full-length musical has been adapted to become content-appropriate for youth performers, whilst still containing all the favourite musical numbers including All That Jazz, Cell Block Tango, When You're Good to Mama and Razzle Dazzle..
Broadway’s longest-running American musical, Chicago is a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. Set in 1920s Chicago and based on real-life murders and trials.
Chicago follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy and lustful superstar, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight-- though instead of onstage, they’re performing for the flashbulb of the newspaper reporters.
With catchy music and timeless lyrics by John Kander

Light Up a Life 2019 – Yeovil

The St. Margaret’s Hospice Light up a Life celebration service offers a way to commemorate loved ones at this time of year, and we warmly invite you to join us at St John’s Church, Church Street, Yeovil BA20 1HE.

These events help families and friends to come together to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones. The events are open to anyone, not just people whose loved one was cared for by a hospice. Each gentle, uplifting service provides an opportunity to come together, to pay tribute to cherished family members or friends, and to light a candle in their memory. Usually, the most important part of these events is the opportunity to dedicate a message in memory of a loved one by lighting a candle, hanging a message on a tree, recording the name of someone special in a book of remembrance, or reading it aloud.

Do join us, we would love to see you there to light a candle and share your memories.

The Royal Navy International Air Day

RNAS Yeovilton, the spiritual home of the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm, will open their gates to 40,000 visitors to enjoy the spectacular five hour flying display.

With 2020 being the 75th anniversary year of VE and VJ Days, RNIAD will be a marvellous opportunity for nations to come together in commemoration of the end of WW2, reinforcing that international cooperation continues to be vital to us all.


There will be a huge array of educational ground attractions from interactive Service displays to engineering fairs and state-of-the-art defence technology exhibitions. Families will also be able to enjoy trade stalls, arena displays, helicopter pleasure flights, simulators and fairground rides.
