Box Office Opens Today

Box Office

Tickets for this year’s Variety Concert go on sale at 8.30am this morning in the market outside the Town Hall. We will be open on Thursday and Saturday mornings until we sell out – which on last year’s performance, won’t be very long. Don’t delay; book your seats now for one of the best nights of the year.

Produce Show Best Yet

Yesterday’s produce show was the most successful to date in terms of numbers of entries, up from 150 last year to well over 200 this year. We even had to add more tables as late-comers arrived with bags, trays and boxes of garden produce and baked goods.

If you want to hear about successes in individual classes, you only have to look at FaceBook; it’s alive this morning with pictures of fruit, vegetables and cakes plus the resulting certificates. But this year’s  winners in the different sections were as follows:
