That’s Entertainment - December 21
So sorry, but there does not seem to be any way of avoiding using that Christmas word as most of the items this week are connected with it!
I will try to help matters to begin with by highlighting an event taking place towards the end of January, on Friday the 25th to be precise.
A lunchtime recital will be held at Hunstanton Town Hall beginning at 1pm.
One can enjoy a tea or coffee from 12.30pm and then hear Judith France (violin) and Simon Bower (piano) in a programme including Elgar’s lovely and autumnal Violin Sonata.
Bring your own lunch if you wish.
Admission is free but donations toward the costs would be appreciated.
More lunchtime recitals will follow at this venue in 2013.
Don’t forget The King’s Morris dancing away on Boxing Day (details on their website) and The King’s Lynn Town Band entertaining us on Saturday, December 22, at Watlington Village Hall in Church Road.
Details are also given on the band’s website.
There is the opportunity for dancing of another kind at Middleton Village Hall tonight, December 21, when Dawn and Stuart Burr are providing the entertainment between 8 and 11pm.
Tickets are £6, but be quick and contact 07925 152252 now to buy.
Basic seasonal refreshment will be available but feel free to bring your own food if you wish.
Doors open at 7.30pm.
Don’t forget there are many productions of such ballets as The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty suitable for the time of year nationally, and I would certainly recommend The Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky as a great ballet for a first time visit for both young and old.
If you cannot find one being held locally why not pop on the train and see one in London?
Best at the end of the week, weekend or go to a matinee.
Moving over to Hunstanton again, if you have not been before, why not take a peep at The Hunstanton Christmas swim at the Promenade there from 10.30am on Christmas Day.
It can be quite an experience.
You can call on 01485 532610 for the details.
Over the Christmas period you can take a ride on the North Norfolk Railway Poppy Line and enjoy the Mince Pie Specials!
These are between Sheringham and Holt, from 10am-4pm.
My “Panto of the Week” has to be Pinocchio, which will be showing at the Hunstanton Town Hall.
Tickets are available from the Hunstanton Tourist Information Centre (telephone 01485 532610).
And finally, I’m now off to the cinema to see the new movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
So it just remains for me to wish all my readers the very best for Christmas and the New year.
Thanks for your support in 2012.
