Comedy on this week at Whangateau Hall
“The Thwarting of Baron Bolligrew”
Local drama group “Work in Progress Players” are presenting a Monty Python-esque comedy this Wednesday, December 10th, at the hall. Entry is by gold coin donation. BYO refreshments. The show begins at 7pm. I can say without a hint of bias* that these performers are brilliantly hilarious, particularly the young man playing the Baron. If you need a bit of live dramatic comedy in your life, come check this out.
Tickets now available for Tattletale Saints
I’ve been quite heartened about the chatter around the area about folk club. I think it’s going to be a thing. We won’t have one this month, because DECEMBER, but we’ll see you back at the hall on January 22nd at 6:30pm for award winning folk duo Tattletale Saints (plus extra band members!) for a very special new show. This will be a concert-only night at the hall. We’ll have a club night again in February with floor singers and a jam session.
If you would like more information about Tattletale Saints, check out their website, www.tattletalesaints.com. Ask anyone who has seen them the past two years, they are amazing and not to be missed.
Whangateau Hall Country Faire
The Sunday after the Tattletale Saints show is the Whangateau Hall Country Faire, 9am-2pm, 25 January, which is the main annual fundraiser for the hall. Car boot sale, bouncy castles, yummy food, lots of quick fire raffles and heaps more. It’s a great day out and a great way to support our hall and the wonderful committee that looks after it. This past year they used the money to refinish the floors and aren’t they just stunning? We owe them a debt of gratitude for their stewardship of this community treasure. Come on out and support them on the day.
Please drop me a line if you have any questions. Or you could have a poke around whangateau.co.nz for general information about the hall and music concerts there.
