Horsham District Showcase Tour @ Henfield Hall Car Park
Mar 24 @ 3:00 pm – 3:45 pm

Following the success of the Piazza Italia District Tours in 2016 and 2017, something extra special is being planned for the Year of Culture in 2019. The District Showcase Tour will see around 40 of the best vehicles representing the 5 main motor-based events in Horsham, tour the market towns.  There will be up to 8 of the best vehicles from each of the following events:  Horsham Piazza Italia; Horsham’s Great British Weekend (was English Festival); PlumJam, Horsham FrenchFest (Cars new in 2019) and Horsham AmeriCARna.

Henfield Parish Council, Henfield Community Partnership and BN5 have joined together to make the pit stop in Henfield a great family event.

Henfield Free Church will be offering Cream Teas and Soho Village Jazz Band will be playing at the White Hart. There will also be several food street sellers on the High Street during the afternoon.

Partridge Green Players Hosted Play @ PG Village Hall
Mar 24 @ 7:30 pm

The Players are hosting a professional theatre company as part of the Art Council’s rural touring scheme – Applause – and also supported by Horsham District Council’s Year of Culture.  The company is called Anonymous Is A Woman, and they are performing IT IS NOW by Madeline Gould for us.

It’s the 30th of July 1966, a date that would go down in history, the day of the World Cup Final between England and Germany.  But it’s also the wedding day of Laura and Joe, a day when two sides collide, but also filled with A Groovy Kind of Love. Can Laura keep everyone’s attention away from the most iconic game of football England has ever played and save her big day?

Whether you’re on the side of the bride or groom, of England or (dare I say it?) Germany, you can expect to join us for an evening of romance, drama and the sounds of the swinging sixties.

Tickets are £10 each.  Seats will be in a cabaret style with only 72 tickets available, so people will need to book early!  Tickets are available from Liz Ganney, by emailing e.ganney@btinternet.com or through Horsham Museum tel: 01403 211661 or email: information@horhsam.gov.uk

Partridge Green Players are using this opportunity to raise money for Partridge Green Players and put some of the money towards new village hall chairs, and another Applause production in the future.  There will, therefore be a pay bar, a raffle and football themed fundraising games to raise money – it’ll be a really fun evening!

Woodmancote Hall Public Meeting @ The Pavilion
Apr 3 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Following the survey that was sent out to all Woodmancote parishioners over the Christmas period, there was an overwhelming majority of votes to support the newly formed Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) in its plan to obtain a grant of £150,000 from the Parish Council to renovate the Hall. This plan is now being put into operation.

The CIO has a number of options as to how to use the grant in the best way for the community, and wants to discuss these options in an open meeting with the people of Woodmancote and Blackstone. We, as the CIO, are all Woodmancote and Blackstone residents and want to introduce ourselves to everyone and to talk about what lies ahead. We need to discuss how we can all work together to eventually produce a community centre that will provide a place for group meetings, activities and fun for all ages, including a licenced venue for weddings and parties.

Please come along to support this meeting – refreshments will be provided for all.
