Village Hall update (Covid 19)

Following the government announcement of another lockdown from 4th January, the village hall is once again closed. We are very sad to have had to cancel existing bookings, including yoga classes and Flicks in the Sticks, but group gatherings are currently not permissible.

We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so.

Borderlines Film Festival 5th March The Souvenir

The Souvenir (cert 15) £5.50 7.30.p.m.

In 1980s London, amid ascendant Thatcherism and IRA violence, Julie, a young, quietly ambitious film student embarks on her first serious love affair with the mysterious Anthony. Despite the concerns of her mother and friends, she slips deeper into her turbulent relationship, finding it increasingly hard to discern fact from fiction. It’s a really gorgeous film –nostalgic, melancholy, specific and intimate. Swinton Byrne gives a star-making performance as Julie –a diffident yet passionate young woman investigating love, class, creativity and her place in the world.

Please note 50p surcharge for Borderlines films

Solar Panels installed at Brilley village Hall

The solar panels recently installed on the roof of Brilley Village Hall are now up and working. Not only will this help cut the hall's running costs, but we are really pleased to be reducing our carbon footprint and making a small contribution towards climate change reduction. 

The cost of installing the panels was supported by the England European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020

Borderlines Film Festival: Pain and Glory: Change of date

Pain & Glory (cert 15)

Sunday 8th March at 7.30.p.m.

£5.50 (50p surcharge for Borderlines films)

A nostalgic, semi-autobiographical tale, following Salvador Mallo, a film director in decline as he explores a series of experiences and encounters from his past. Facing his mortality, he recalls his childhood in ‘60s Valencia, his first love affair in ‘80s Madrid, the pain of heartbreak and his fateful early discovery of cinema. A typically witty, sensuous, evocative and intelligent film from Pedro Almodóvar, it is intensely personal and beautifully produced.

Subtitled. 

Bring your own refreshments. Doors open 7pm

Thursday 7th January: Little Women(cert 15) 2.30.p.m.

Greta Gerwig brings the entire March family to life like never before in a respectful but bracingly current version that is frequently funny, charming and heart-warming. It is never about anything other than the journey to adulthood of four sweet, clever young women, and in this sweeping, musical, romantic and grounded retelling, it is a delight to travel with them.

In order to comply with government regulations and, more importantly, to keep you safe numbers are very limited. Please note:

 - Face masks MUST be worn at all times, except whilst seated and eating or drinking. You will be asked to sanitise your hands on arrival and on leaving. A one way system will be in operation. 
- On arrival you will be directed to your seat. Once seated you must not mingle with other people in the hall and should remain seated throughout (other than comfort break needs).

Flicks in the Sticks

We are excited to announce that we will be restarting Flicks at Brilley Village Hall on September 3rd. The Risk Assessment has been done and we are confident that we can offer films  in a very safe way. 
Inevitably this will mean some changes. 
- Firstly, numbers will be very limited to allow for social distancing (maximum of 15 couples or 20 individuals)
- You MUST book and pay in advance online through the Arts Alive website. Go to https://www.artsalive.co.uk/venue.aspx?id=113  Here all the Brilley films are listed. For each film you just click on "Buy tickets now"
- Ticket prices remain at £5 but you will have to pay an additional online booking fee of £1 per ticket up to £5 maximum per purchase.  (So, if you want to save money, it's best to book all your tickets in one go.)      
- From October, we will be offering fortnightly films with every other film being a matinee. We hope this will give people more opportunity to catch up with friends in a safe environment.
- As usual, bring your own refreshments, including glasses etc - the kitchen will be locked and not available.
 - Face masks MUST be worn on entering, leaving or moving around the building. You will be asked to sanitise your hands on arrival and on leaving. A one way system will be in operation. Please come prepared.
