David Mynne, veteran Cornish actor and a founder member of Kneehigh, presents a one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’; spend an evening with Ebenezer Scrooge: a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, clutching, covetous, old miser! Bah!

In their inimitable style, the team that brought you Great Expectations, Dracula and The Odyssey will now take you on a grim (sort of) journey through the dark, dismal streets of Victorian London. Expect Dickens’ original words with added silliness. Silliness? Bah!

Celebrate the festive season with a mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story, now with extra Humbug! Touring with Artsreach, Dorset’s rural touring arts charity. Recommended 9+

Christmas Lights

Decorate outside hopefully with low energy led lights. Please make sure any arrangment is safe and can be seen from the roadside. The Village Hall cannot take any responsibility for any damage caused in the construction of any arrangments! Judging will take place over the weekend of 17/18/19 December followed by the Christmas Lights party with all sorts of fun involved in the Briantspuddle Village Hall on Wednesday 22 December from 7 – 9 pm. Prizes for best overall, best classic, most colourful and possibly a discretionary prize for anything else that catches the eye of the judges as they make their way round the whole of the parish.

Purbeck Film Festival 2021

Maggie hoyle writes:

In the interests of safety the Film Festival is scaled down this year and only larger venues are being used.  Briantspuddle Village Hall qualifies in this respect and we have been invited to participate.

We will adhere to whatever Covid regulations are in force at the time.

Winter talks – Briantspuddle Village Hall

We are pleased to announce that we are once again hosting a series of evening talks in the Briantspuddle Village Hall. There will be 5 talks on various topics, one each month from November to April, but excluding December.

The talks start at 7:30 pm and we ask for a £3 donation, which gets you a cuppa and biscuits as well as an erudite advancement in your cerebral skills. Wine is also available at £2 per glass.

Parish Magazine

This is an electronic version of the parish magazine without the cover pages. It is set up as the printers copy A4 folded to A5 therefore the pages are not sequentially layed out – takes a bit of getting used to but its all there!
