Just a quick reminder that the next supporters’ meeting will be this Thursday at the King Street Café at 18.30. Join us for the latest update on the HSBC building and how we are planning the acquisition.
Just to keep you all up to date –
Film bookings coming in now. Brief Encounter Tea+Film especially. Don’t miss out on a seat!
Just to make it clear in answer to a question yesterday. The film and tea are inclusive. If you only wish to see the film that’s fine but the ticket will remain at £10. We believe the film will begin at about 6.00 p.m. but we have to make allowances to clear tables etc. And of course there may not be a seat available, so we still recommend you book and let us know you will not attend the tea. Thank you.
If you have any questions about the Festival in general – please email firstname.lastname@example.org
RIO BRAVO POSTER 8 17 Over time you have asked us to show Westerns. This is one of the most famous with a cast including John Wayne, Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson, Angie Dickinson and Ward Bond. Not only that – it is directed by one of the most famous Directors in the business – Howard Hawks. PLEASE SUPPORT US BY COMING TO SEE IT and demonstrating for us that WESTERNS WILL BE A POPULAR CHOICE in the future.
Many people have said how much fun it would be to wear 1940’s clothing for the afternoon tea and film. Please “GO FOR IT” if you would like to do so. Perhaps agree with friends with whom you plan to share a table – so everyone “matches” on the day! We would love to be able to see you all dressed up for the film. A4 WW2 costume Click here for details of tickets, date etc., Do let us know at email@example.com if you are coming in costume.
Look what was available to visit during Comicon in Wellington Market yesterday. Enjoy full sized set of Harry Potter’s sweet shop. You can learn more about who made this amazing set, and about what they do by visiting www.captainjackspropshak.co.uk Everything from events and weddings to theatre sets. If you have any involvement in any of these – its well worth talking to them.
It was such fun in the market today – we had a “live” Darlek – all sorts of well known heroes – including the Hulk, Spiderman, varying members of Star Trek and Star Wars and so on. We even had some “mini” Dr Who characters on our Clifton stall too. As they say on one of the famous quiz shows – “Name Them”!
Thank you to vintagegeek in Wellington market and friends who made it all possible. The market was buzzing with people coming to see all the things going on. Wait for the picture of some of our supporters at the Harry Potter sweet shop – it will be posted on line later in the week.
I went to the matinee today with another Clifton colleague. It is an excellent TACT Summer School production of “West Side Story” at the Place, www.theplacetelford.com – and we were really impressed with the standard of their work. Both the ensemble singing and the young lead soloists were excellent – not a word I use often when reviewing a production! Well done Musical Director – Ross Doodson. The acting and movement conveyed emotion and energy – the cast being guided by Director Bobby Standley and Choreographer – Rebecca Haydon.
They are sold out for tonight and tomorrow night – but there are tickets remaining for tomorrow afternoon and I would really advise going to see it. If you are a theatre goer don’t miss it! It really is well worth the two hours on a Sunday afternoon. Tickets are on line and average at £13.50.
Please do try to support these future professional performers – you won’t be disappointed.
As we are getting ever closer to getting the lease on HSBC the question of funding becomes ever more relevant. As we have said in the local media our funding will come from a variety of sources including grants.
Telford & Wrekin Council have launched a legacy fund to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Telford and part of this fund will go towards community projects. We have already had discussions with the council and have registered an expression of interest for us to be the recipient of an award.
Currently the council are conducting a consultation exercise and it would be enormously helpful to us if as many members, friends and supporters could fill in the survey and support us as a recipient of an award. Please note the survey closes on 18th September 2017
The link to the survey is below,
As you have probably seen in the local media we have made good progress towards securing the lease on the HSBC building. It may well be that by the time of the next supporters meeting we will be able to update you further.
This is due to take place at the King Street Café on Thursday 24th August at 6.30.
This will be the most important meeting that we have held for a long time as we are very much in the planning stages towards getting the centre up and running and we would like as many members, friends and supporters to attend as possible so that you can understand what plans we are putting in place and how you can contribute towards the realisation of the project.
As always, everybody is welcome and please come along if you can.
The Clifton is hosting a fully certified Emergency First Aid at Work particularly for volunteers, though suitable for all – at the Belmont Hall on the 5th August beginning at 9.30 a.m. Tea/coffee will be supplied but delegates will be expected to provide their own lunch. Details are given on the poster. There are limited spaces available (some are already taken), so it will be first come, first served. Please contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to know more or book your place by emailing email@example.com Full details are to be found on the poster shown on this page or by clicking on the link below:
