The Churchfitters

Date: Sunday 2nd April
Venue: Stage on the Hill at France Lynch Church Rooms
Time: Doors Open 7.00pm, Curtain up 7.30pm
Price: Admission: Adults £10

The Churchfitters is a folk band like no other. A bass guitar made out of a frying pan. Heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw. Foot-stompingly fast fiddle mixed with infectious funk-rock bouzouki. And traditional tunes reinvigorated with mesmerising jazz sax. The three virtuoso musicians from England and France strut their stuff on a stage that bristles with instruments – adding flute, banjo, dulcimer, tin whistle, guitar, ukulele, stand up dustbin bass and a sackful of percussion to their ensemble. And let’s not forget the unique ‘bing-bong’ machine made out of hack-saw blades. Throw in some exquisite harmonies, a slew of startlingly original songs and a few jokes that create instant rapport and you’ve got a high energy show that always leaves audiences cheering. How do you adequately describe such a musically diverse, uplifting band? You leave it to Mike Harding, a self-confessed ‘huge, huge fan’. He calls them ‘totally brilliant and beautiful’.

Dave Pegg, Fairport Convention: “I knew as soon as I saw Boris’s instruments that the Churchfitters were going to be interesting. However, on watching their set I can honestly say that they are the most musically inventive quartet that I have seen in decades. They received a standing ovation from the festival. Go and see them and you will understand why. A must”
Sunday 2nd April Doors Open 7.00pm, Curtain up 7.30pm
Admission: Adults £10 – available from Aubrey or Gill on 01453 882624 or

A UNITED KINGDOM (Cert 12A - 2016)

Date: Thursday 13th April
Venue: At France Lynch Church Rooms, Hall on the Hill Thursday 11 April
Time: Doors Open 7.00, Film starts 7.30pm
Price: £4 payable at the door

Cast & Crew : David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Tom Felton, Laura Carmichael, Jack Davenport, Charlotte Hope Director: Amma Asante
A United Kingdom is based on extraordinary true events. In 1947, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana, met Ruth Williams, a London office worker. They were a perfect match, yet their proposed marriage was challenged not only by their families but by the British and South African governments. The latter had recently introduced the policy of apartheid and found the notion of a biracial couple ruling a neighbouring country intolerable. South Africa threatened the British: either thwart the couple or be denied access to South African uranium and gold and face the risk of South Africa invading Botswana.
Admission £4 – payable at the door
