Show entitled 'SILENCE'
Performed by Panta Rei Danseteater


Two performances 6.00 pm and 8.15 pm each followed by tea and talk with the dancers. Tickets from Deb Childs 01935 891744 or online at Artsreach. Adults �10, U 18's �6 Ticket numbers are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.

The performance is all about the evolving relationship between the performers and the physical space they find themselves in, and between them and you, and, the joy of silence.

Home is often a busy place and in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, we are all looking for a bit of quiet. A nice hot cup of silence. Because it is precisely in those moments of quiet that our deepest thoughts arise. To honour this need, Panta Rei have designed a very special production, to be performed in people's living rooms.

Four young women will explore what arises when we find that moment of silence. The thoughts, feelings and revelations that arise

Corscombe Local History


There will be an exhibition in the village hall about CORSCOMBE HOUSES during the weekend.

The local history group is working on this, bringing together pictures and stories of the buildings and their inhabitants in the village.

Sadly we can’t cover all the parish so will miss out Toller, Weston, Urless, Benville and more. Perhaps next time?

It will not just be about the old cottages, but up to the present day (including those being built now!!).

PLEASE if you have any photos, stories or information about your house could you let us know?
There will be a chance at the exhibition to fill in some more gaps, but the more we have on show the more interesting it will be.

Pentabus Theatre with 'The Tale of Little Bevan'

Tickets: Adults £9.00, U18 £6.00, Family £25 from Deb Childs, village shop or online.

Bar, Tea/Coffee and Cakes available

The Tale of Little Bevan:

"It was a full moon so I suppose we should've known. Nothing good happens on a full moon. Well, not in our village".

He came one night. No-one could really remember quite when or from where. He just had so many stories you see. We forgot to ask for the details.

'The Tale of Little Bevan' is a new play by award-winning writer Robert Alan Evans, made in collaboration with village hall promoters and rural communities. With live music and original songs, this darkly comic fairytale from this award-winning theatre company will make you question what community really means. Those who saw 'Crossings' last autumn will know just what an outstanding theatre company Pentabus is.

Breakfast Church
If you’re wondering, ‘What is Breakfast Church?’ well, let’s call it a new way of doing church. A relaxed new event in Halstock Village Hall that just might have answers to some of life’s questions

So come and share croissants, bacon rolls and good coffee, plus some songs and a talk, and we’ll search for answers as we travel through life together

It takes place on the 4th Sunday of the month in Halstock Village Hall, starting at 9.30am
