New Outdoor Play Area, Edingley

The local community in Edingley are fundraising to provide a new outdoor play area which will be situated at the front of the Old Schoolroom building. Plans and costings will be available to view on Saturday 23rd March 11am to 12 noon and Sunday 24th March 10.30am to 3pm, which coincides with our annual Daffodil Festival. The public are invited to come along to have any questions answered. We hope that part of the funding will be met by local donations, and donation pledge forms will be available on the day. This is an exciting new venture, and an idea initiated by many Edingley residents who feel that there is a definite need for a play area for young children. We do hope that you’re able to take this opportunity to look at the plans, and express your views.

Newark's Tudor Hall

Shakespeare in Love

Celebrate William Shakespeare’s 455th birthday with a screening of multiple Oscar winner Shakespeare In Love. On Tuesday 23rd April, Newark’s authentic Tudor Hall will open its doors for this fantastic film night honouring one of Britain’s greatest writers. Enjoying the 20th anniversary of its release this year, the film draws strongly from the plots of the Bard’s plays, particularly Romeo and Juliet and Twelfth Night, in its humorous fictional portrayal of his life. Its star-studded cast includes Judi Dench, Gwyneth Paltrow, Joseph Fiennes, Ben Affleck, Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and many more. Just 35 years older than the Bard himself, the National Civil War Centre’s Tudor Hall is the perfect setting for this screening event. Guests are invited to sit back beneath its picturesque beams and enjoy this modern classic with friends, family or themselves. The screening, for age 15 and over only, begins at 7pm with the bar open from 6pm and will be introduced by historian and film aficionado Adam Nightingale. Guests are also welcome to join a post-film discussion in the bar. Tickets, costing only £5, are limited for this exclusive event so make sure to book early. Book online at www.nationalcivilwarcentre.com/events or phone 01636 655765.

Wes Finch and The Rude Mechanicals

Southwell Library present Wes Finch and The Rude Mechanicals on Friday 10th May at 7pm. In this delightful gem of a concert, The Rude Mechanicals led by the exceptional song-smith Wes Finch, and galvanised by their love of literature, draw on the words of Shakespeare, WB Yeats, William Blake, Philip Larkin, John Masefield and more for their witty erudite, and achingly lively songs. Invigorating guitar and exceptional vocals are accompanied by skillful and vivacious double bass and the subtly interweaving string lines of violin and viola, all is accentuated by percussion and drums. With a blast of originality and fantastic energy, they combine bittersweet acoustic ballads, subtle folk-classical music, jazz, chanson and enchanting poetry recitation into a live show of infectious goodwill and sense of occasion. Tickets are available from the library £10/concessions £9, contact 01363 812148 for further details.
