June 2022 News Update

Goodness me June already!  I hope you have your tickets for this month’s production of Alan Ayckbourn’s Confusions.  Four plays for the price of one all on the same night! Show dates June 17th, 18th, 23rd, 24th and 25th.   Tickets on sale through Ticket Source. See what a challenge we have given our stage crew – 4 plays, four sets or are there? The last set has definitely caused some intriguing discussions. Come along to the Victoria Hall and enjoy an entertaining evening locally.

HAG ROCKS! CHOIR

Summer light evenings are upon us and with everyone in good spirits our singing seems much lighter too.  If there are any men reading this we seriously need you at choir.  The men are outnumbered by at least 4 to 1 by the ladies.  Our existing men do extremely well but I am sure they would appreciate a few more in their group.


June is the month for the HAG AGM – 28th June 8pm in the Jubilee Hall. HAG Membership Fees still only £35, if you haven’t yet renewed please make sure you do before the AGM as you cannot vote if not a fully paid up member. Your subscriptions are very important to the Group.  More info on our website. Thank you. Please contact us if you are interested in joining our fun group in whatever capacity.

May 2022 News Update

Alan Ayckbourn’s Confusions; our plays for June are being rehearsed twice a week and the Group is very busy building sets, collecting props and organising costumes.  So much involved with putting on one play, let alone four AND all on the same night!  HAG will rise to the challenge!

Come along to the Victoria Hall and enjoy an entertaining evening locally.  Support your local thespians, they are an endangered species!

HAG ROCKS! CHOIR

Last month was a challenge, as with rising numbers of people suffering from the dreaded virus, numbers at choir were seriously depleted.  As I write this a month in advance I am hoping we did finally manage to have our Charity event to honour Lesley Parish and fund raise for her chosen charities.  If we did manage it, I am sure an excellent time would be had by all as HAG certainly knows how to party!  (Past experience of some fantastic evenings).


HAG Membership Fees £35 were due on April 1st – if you haven’t yet paid please do so asap.  Your subscriptions are very important to the Group.  More info on our website. Thank you.

Please contact us if you are interested in joining our fun group in whatever capacity.
