Theatre! Our new foyer is coming

at Leiston Film very


indeed and will provide our venue with a lot more space and shorter queues, as pre-booked tickets will be collected from a separate counter. We very much appreciate your understanding during these works – we really do have the best customers! We have a host of great

films on screen in the coming weeks, plus four live shows to look forward to.

Tickets are priced at £17.50 and are already selling well, as are tickets for The Mods and Rockers Show on Saturday 11th May at 7.30pm. Johnny Warman’s musical


through the 60’s and 70’s really is a show not to be missed and features the music of the Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Small Faces, The Kinks, Jimi Hendrix, The Animals, The Zombies

plus many, many

more. Tickets are still available, priced £15, but are expected to sell out shortly, so don’t leave it too late! Neil Gore brings his one-man show, The Ragged Trousered

forward to welcoming back Britain’s Got Talent finalist Steve Hewlett, along with his cast of crazy characters on Saturday 25th May. Steve shot to fame for his superb skills as a Ventriloquist on Britain’s Got Talent in 2013, alongside Arthur Lager and little Simon Cowell. Steve first appeared at the Film Theatre in 2014 as part of our centenary celebrations and his family friendly show will no doubt prove a popular attraction for the May half term school holidays. Tickets are priced at £12.50 for adult, £11.95 for concessions, with a family ticket for only £40. Films for May include the return of Fisherman’s Friends

Water 2019 HALESWORTH Community Choir is supporting this year’s “Sing for Water” project in aid of Water-Aid. Money raised from this project will be used to bring clean water and sanitation to people in Malawi, a project made all the more vital following Cyclone Idai, which caused severe flooding in Mozambique,

Zimbabwe and

Malawi. “Sing for Water” involves performances of water-themed songs by massed choirs around the country; these have raised over £1 million for Water-Aid’s work over the past 17 years. Members of Halesworth Community Choir will be performing at the event in London in September, but the good news is that residents of Halesworth and surrounding areas can get a preview of the “Sing for Water” songs at Halesworth Community Choir’s “Concert for Water Aid” at The Cut, in Halesworth on June 8th. The concert will feature songs from across the globe, including one inspired by Sioux Indians in North Dakota and one from Lesotho. In addition to the “Sing for Water” songs the choir will perform locally composed songs with a watery theme. All proceeds from the concert will go to Water Aid.

Come and join us on Saturday 8th June at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 and available from The Cut box office, (Tel 0300 303 3211; E-mail:
