Misty copeland

The Community Centre is looking forwards to welcoming you to a couple of major events in the next few days, I do hope that you can join us.

On Sunday 21st May at 2.30pm you can luxuriate in the glorious sound of Prokofiev's music as you are dazzled by the sensuous choreography of Kenneth Macmillan. Romeo and Juliet is one of the best known and most accessible of the classical ballet repertoire. There are no fairy godmothers, no mythical princes and most definitely no swans! This is a 'boy meets girl' romance that ends in tragedy, a story to touch your heart. The performance was filmed at La Scala Milan in December and features the American prima ballerina Misty Copeland as Juliet and the very handsome Roberto Bolle as Romeo. Tickets are £10 from the Post Office, and on the door. There will be refreshments and free off-street parking but you will have to bring your own hankies!

On Friday 26th May at 7.30pm we welcome you to see the 1950's finish and the 1960's get going — a wonderful era that changed our lives. Lightning under their Skirts is written by Cheshire based poet and playwright Joy Winkler and directed by Action Transport Theatre's Kevin Dyer. In this three-handed piece of fun, actress Josie Cerise may be known to some of you from the children's series Grandpa in my Pocket and Ha Ha Hairies. Expect music and laughter and, after the interval, songs and a 60's quiz. Oh .... and Babycham and pineapple on sticks — well, this is the 60's after all. This show has played to packed houses earlier on its tour, so let's see if we can give them a similar good welcome in Tarvin.

Tickets are £10 from the Post Office, Online or on the door.


It certainly is a busy few days because I am sure that you haven't forgotten that it is Film Night on Friday with Boss Baby and The Viceroy's House entertaining you at 6.00 and 8.00 respectively. Never let it be said that living in Tarvin is dull!

In June 1991 villagers refused to be downhearted by what was described as "appalling weather" and hence helped to still raise £1,500 at the 20th Tarvin Carnival. Despite what at time amounted to torrential rain the show went on with the then traditional parade of floats round the village, with the first prize going to the Tarvin Primary School. Again in those days, there was the...
