Quorn Neighbourhood Plan Referendum

Quorn Village Hall and The Clubhouse Quorn Football Club - 7am to 10pm
No cost

The referendum for the Quorn Neighbourhood Plan will take place on Thursday 2nd May 2019. Please take the opportunity to vote at your allocated polling station by checking your Poll Card.

You will be asked: 'Do you want the Borough Council to use the plan to help it decide planning applications in the Quorn neighbourhood area'.

A neighbourhood plan attains the same legal status as the Local Plan once it has been approved at a referendum so, its important that you use your vote.

The Wednesday Film Show - The Wife

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

After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe Castleman (Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce) are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as Great American Novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man's Wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work. Joe's literary star has blazed since he and Joan first met in the late 1950s. THE WIFE interweaves the story of the couple's youthful passion and ambition with a portrait of a marriage, 30+ years later - a lifetime's shared compromises, secrets, betrayals and mutual love.
Pay at the door - we hope to see you there.

Quorn Village Hall - 2.00pm, doors open 1.45pm

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.
