We put on a small number of music events booked each year, and performers who have come to the hall over the last decade have told us how much they enjoy the special atmosphere and character of the building. Just to reassure you,
that lovely atmosphere has not been lost in the recent refurbishment, but all the fixtures, fittings and facilities have been brought up to modern standards.
Come along to one of our famous music gigs! Doors open at 7pm, when we serve food, based around salads, continental meats, houmous & pitta bread, at £5 a serving for those would like to eat. There's plenty for veggies. We've
no licence, so it's 'Bring your own' booze, and it's first come first served for the tables, which hold up to 60 of a maximum audience of 70. The performance usually starts at 7.30 or 7.45. I hope you get the picture and decide to come - people seem to like
it as they come again and again!
Friday 13th January 7pm, Wassail Evening
Whether you think of Wassail as a superstitious old custom or an excuse to get out of the house in mid-January, in Hornblotton it’s certainly a night when there is magic in the air. This year’s good harvest of eaters, cookers and cider apples must be down to
those of you who turned out for last January’s Wassail to ensure both the thriving of local trees and of our community spirit. This year we will again have the young king/queen lifted up to place toast in the tree branches as we offer our blessings, and then,
back in the hall, Roger White and The Village Folk leading us in Wassail carols and familiar songs – after a tasty ploughman’s supper with paid bar.
The word Wassail probably comes from the Old English ‘Waes thu hael’, meaning ‘be you well’ and harks back to the old midwinter tradition of visiting neighbours to wish well at the turning of the year.
So we invite you to join us again for Wassail this year, whether newcomer or one who has grown up with the tradition, to give our village apple trees - and our year as a community - a hale and hearty start.
Festivities start at 7pm, tickets are just £7 for adults and £4 for children; to reserve, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01963 240769
And remember to bring pots and pans to bang, torches and wellies! And since we'll be walking along the lane, hi-viz garments would be advisable.
