Christmas Bazaar in Village Hall

Pat Simmonds & Su DeBar are organising an afternoon of Christmas cheer & chat, with another Made in Morcott stall giving you the opportunity to buy home-made jams, jellies, preserves and chutneys. There will be hand-crafted gifts; potted-up spring bulbs and other presents for gardeners, and even vintage style.

There will also be a raffle with great prizes, and an auction for a beautifully-iced cake kindly made by Emily Joyce.

The Bazaar is on Saturday 10 December in Morcott Village Hall, starting at 2pm. Admission is £1.50 which includes a mince pie & a hot drink.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to the new Dove Cottage Day Hospice in Ridlington. The hospice offers palliative day care to people living in Rutland so this is a wonderful local cause well worth supporting – and it will be a sociable and fun afternoon!

South Luffenham: Oh Whistle and I’ll Come to You…

As there is no theatrical production in Morcott this autumn, South Luffenham’s Centre Stage-subsidised rural theatre event may appeal. It’s on 6 December 2016.

The performance by New Perspectives Theatre is based on the classic ghost story by MR James. Widely regarded as the father of the modern ghost story, MR James’ eerie tale is re-imagined into a new Christmas season chiller.

As New Perspectives explains…  “A prying hand brings forth from centuries of sleep… a mysterious thing… it seems a whistle… and on it engraved… these ominous words… WHO’S THAT COMING?

Professor Parkins takes a room at The Globe. Away from Cambridge, a peaceful coastal retreat with minimal interruption from the inn’s young valet should be perfect for writing. But on taking a walk to explore the area, Parkins finds an ancient whistle with a soul-stirring inscription. Choosing to ignore its warning, the professor is soon to discover he is not alone…
PERFORMED IN South Luffenham Village Hall at 7.30pm on Tuesday 6th December.  Tickets £10 each from Malcolm on 01780 720687 or Noel on 01780 720112. 
Suitable for audience age 14+years.  Running time: 90 mins + interval
