The Wednesday Film Show: Fisherman's Friends

Quorn Village Hall - 2.00pm [doors open 1.45pm]
£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
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?
