The Wednesday Film Show - Stan & Ollie

Quorn Village Hall - 2.00pm, doors open 1.45pm
Cost: £4.00 - includes tea, biscuits and raffle ticket

The true story of Hollywood's greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy, is brought to the big screen for the first time. Starring Steve Coogan and John C Reilly as the inimitable movie icons, Stan and Ollie is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair's triumphant farewell tour. With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) - a formidable double act in their own right - the pair's love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public. Watch out for the scenes at the GCR!
Pay at the door - we hope to see you there.

Cost: £4.00 [includes tea, biscuits and raffle ticket]

A fast-living, cynical London music executive (Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy). He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families (including Tuppence Middleton) who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he’s drawn deeper into the traditional way of life, he’s forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.

Quorn Local History Group Talk - Religion, faith and worship in nineteenth century Quorn

St Bartholomew's United Church - 7.00pm
Cost: Members £2.00 Guests £4.00

QLHG secretary John Adsley asks the questions and suggests some answers. Where did the people of Quorn choose to worship? Why did so many choose to follow their conscience and reject the Church of England in favour of other Christian sects? How did this choice to be a dissenter adversely affect their lives and that of their families? How typical were they of the rest of the population of England and Wales in the nineteenth century? How did the Church of England respond to this increasing unpopularity?
