Quorn Village Hall - 2.00pm - doors open at 1.45pm
£4.00 (at the door) - includes tea, biscuits and raffle ticket

Banish the winter weather as we start the year with 'Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again'. The story picks up with Sophie pregnant and not sure how she’s going to cope. Moving between the past and present, we follow Sophie as she tries to come to terms with her situation and finds herself discovering more about her mother Donna’s past - falling in love and building a home for her family on their sun-soaked island. The stage is set for secrets to be revealed and, of course, to the timeless musical numbers of ABBA. Underneath all the glamour and silliness remains a sweet heartfelt story about family, memories, growing up and the joy of music.
