Nov 2nd @2k Perfromance of 'Ladies Day' by Amanda Whittington Crowcombe Village Hall,
Curtains up at 7.30pm
After the recent success of their production of "The Vicar of Dibley" @2K Theatre, are out and about again, this time touring a heartwarming comedy: "Ladies' Day" by Amanda Whittington.

But their fortunes are set to change when Linda finds tickets to Ladies' Day at Royal Ascot the year it is relocated to York. Out go the hairnets, overalls and wellies as the four ditch work, do themselves up to the nines and head off to the races for a drink, a flirt and a flutter. Singing Tony Christie songs as they go. If their luck holds they could hit the jackpot - and more besides!. Tickets £10

Treat your taste buds to a selection of flavours from sunny Mexico! When? OK, it's early November and it may be cold outdoors, but you can be assured of plenty of warmth indoors, so let's forget about chilly outside and think instead about chilli inside!
