Take Art the organization that enables Kingsdon residents to enjoy quality concerts both in our church and village hall is in need of additional help in its organization team to stage events in the future. The concerts have been enjoyed by residents of the village now for almost twenty years, Martin Singleton and helpers making the initial introduction of such events for the benefit of all and thus ensuring over the years one or two productions to look forward to annually.

Richard and Julie South are currently the promoters, but they do need help of one or two residents to ensure the continued high standard of concert presentation that the village have become accustomed to.

If you are interested in helping please contact Richard on 01935 840912 and he will be happy to explain the various responsibility’s.

Kingsdon Village Hall

May Contain Food, May Contain You

Luca Silvestrini’s Protein

A playful performance in a dining room setting involving dance, theatre, live music and eating.

Join award winning Protein for a highly entertaining evening with friends and family. Transforming Kingsdon Village Hall into a restaurant, you are invited to bring a dish and sit at decorated tables to watch, savour and digest a performance of dance, theatre and song that unfolds around you.

Your charming and multi-talented hosts will win your affections with a playful mix of dances, songs and humorous monologues. Food will certainly be on the menu as the performance involves amuse-bouches and baking a scrumptious sticky ginger pudding for everyone to share! With a raffle orchestrated by the performers during the interval, this sumptuous evening promises to make you smile and enjoy the curious relationship we have with food.

Audience invited to bring food that you have made, grown or bought – something with sentiment to offer and share.

“A lip-smacking fusion of song, dance, mime and sweet aperitif tomatoes”

The Guardian

“I found it really exciting, totally engaging and innovative as well as accessible and relevant to a wide audience…we all felt like guests at a dinner party rather than an audience in a theatre!”

Good Friday Walk

The Annual Good Friday walk in the woods is on again this year organised by Babs Conway & John Yates.

If you wish to participate, then meet up the lane at 10.30 am on Friday 30th March. If you are new to this event then just follow the crowd up the lane towards the woods. Stout walking shoes or wellies and good outdoor clothing are a prerequisite.

You may bring your dog but it MUST be kept on a lead at all times. Children MUST be accompanied by an adult throughout the walk, but need not be on a lead! Small dummy eggs have been made during the winter months. They will be hidden in the woods as usual for the children to find, and then exchanged for real ones on a one for one basis (only 2 per child). We hope this will stop some youngsters helping themselves before the day starts. The dummy eggs (not very tasty!) will be easy to see.

Donations of Eggs / Money / Hot-Cross Buns: We hope villagers will be kind and donate eggs and hot-cross buns as normal. Items may be left before the day at the Kingsdon Community Shop or with Babs (Tel: 841811) or on Good Friday at the Gamekeeper’s Hut at the start of the walk.

Come along and enjoy a walk through the woods and a chatter with good company. All proceeds will be for St. Margaret’s Hospice.

Thank you Babs & John P.s. In the event of conditions deteriorating resulting in the walk having to be called off, a notice will be circulated by email and posted in the shop.
