Film Night at Great Massingham

 

Film Night at Great Massingham shows a film every third Thursday of the month (except December) at the Village Hall  Doors open at 7:00 pm for 7:30 pm.   Details of the next film are below.  Screenings are a very sociable occasion with members of the audience staying behind to chat and enjoy tea, coffee, and cake.  All are welcome and tickets, which cost £4.00, are available at the door on the night.

If you wish, you may also join the 140 or so members of The Film Night.  The cost is £5 for life membership.  You don’t need to be a member to come to the monthly screenings at the Village Hall but members help choose the films we show each season and get advance notice of the programme.  Members can also attend occasional Members’ Evenings at the Village Hall for supper and a film.

The Film Night was formed in the Autumn of 2011 by the Trustees of the Village Hall and the Great Massingham Area Community Cars Scheme.
