Adjacent to the Village Green and close to the Church of St. Mary’s, Gilcrux Village Hall is a popular and reasonably priced venue for celebrating family occasions, enjoying social and fundraising events, as well as providing ample space for clubs, meetings and Adult Education to take place. Booking is really easy and we are always happy to have a chat beforehand to make using the Hall as enjoyable as possible. We hope you enjoy looking at our website and seeing for yourself what a fantastic Village Hall we have here in Gilcrux.
SPRING IS HERE – The village is looking bright and cheerful at the moment with masses of lovely daffodils and other spring flowers bobbing in the wind, bringing hope of warmer days to come.
We are pleased that the Hall is as busy as ever with regular users enjoying the facilities; Ladies Keep Fit, Zumba, Badminton and Strong Flow Yoga providing excellent opportunities to Keep Fit and Healthy.
We were also delighted to see so many of you at The Market a few weeks ago, and some new faces too – thank you all for your support! We can confirm that members of the Cockermouth Country Market will be joining in on a regular basis, which is great news.
Remember to make a note in your diary on Monday 28th April to come along to the Hall at 1.30 pm – 3.00pm as it will be Time for Tea; a good chance to catch up with friends and neighbours whilst sampling some delicious home-made cakes – far too good to miss!
The Easter Holidays start next week for schools and if you are a young person who likes a bit of arts and crafts, Sarah Ames is holding a Craft Club on Tuesday 15th April, when she can show you how to make a Monster Cushion out of recycled bits and bobs. Please contact Sarah to book a place – look at the ‘latest news’ for more details.
Finally we are delighted that the wonderful Sam Lee & Friends are coming to the Hall on Friday 16th May 2014, as part of their UK Tour. This special event has been organised by Debbie Taylor, ‘Bang Your Drum’, who is helping put Gilcrux Village Hall on the map as a great venue for musicians and live music. Sam has been described as “One of Britain’s finest singers and the most cogent force of his generation in British folk music.” (The Observer) and we feel sure we will be treated to a night of pure delight. Book early to guarantee your tickets.
