Wing & Manton Creative Afternoon


Residents of Manton & Wing  are invited to join us at Wing Village Hall on Thursday 7th September,  2.30 – 4.30pm, for a fun afternoon of crafts, coffee, cake and chat.  This new joint venture will give people the chance to get together and share their knowledge of skills like painting, sewing, calligraphy etc.

With support from Round Rutland there will be materials available for you to have a go at a range of activities.

The club will meet twice a month; the first Thursday of the month will be in Wing Village Hall and the third Thursday of the month will be in Manton Village Hall.

If you can help on the day or have some old craft materials that will never get used, we would love to hear from you.

Opera in Morcott Saturday 17 June 2017


Morcott Church

7pm for 7.30pm ‘curtain up’

Lovers of light opera have a treat in store on Saturday 17 June when a group of musical friends – Amici – present Gilbert & Sullivan’s ‘Trial by Jury’ and other operatic highlights in the beautiful setting of Morcott Church.

Amici Chamber Choir has performed the length and breadth of the UK, from Manchester’s concert halls to National Trust stately homes, and on TV for Songs of Praise.

The 18-strong choir is boosted by professional soloists Nick Hardy (Opera North), Joanne Rondel and Judith Tinston who all perform under the leadership of George Robey.

The first half of the programme is Gilbert & Sullivan’s ‘Trial By Jury’, a comic opera in one act. After a relaxed interval during which drinks will be offered, the second half of the concert is a mix of operatic hits including a show-stopping ‘Nessun Dorma’ and memorable choral pieces, some of which have been arranged specially for the concert by choir members.

 Tickets £12.50 from Alison Johnson on 01572 747381.

Unreserved seating.

Interval refreshments available.

See www.morcott.wordpress.com for further information.

Proceeds to church funds.
