Overview of events ...

The Village Hall Committee run a wide range of social events throughout the year to appeal to all ages with a view to enjoying ourselves whilst raising money for the upkeep and refurbishment of the hall.
We have held village lunches, banquets, murder mystery evenings, regular film shows, quiz nights, wine tasting sessions, jumble sales, Christmas fayres and produce shows. We always welcome new ideas.

2017 craft fayre

Events in 2017 ...

The committee had another very successful year. Fundraising events included a craft fayre that raised a tremendous 674 (some photos here); the Murder Mystery "Murder On-Air" set in a community Radio Station raised 760; and the very successful quiz night 435.
The Cinema Club is still doing well covering costs every time and with some very popular evenings such as the showing of Plastic Ocean with Geff Brighty attending for an enlightening and scary Q and A session.
The Sparkling Tea Party was an enjoyable and successful afternoon attracting nearly 40 entries, and raising 420. One of our regular banquets was, as usual, well attended and raised over 500.
We also have our postcards based on last year's treasure map as featured on BBC Radio 4's Broadcasting House.

Events in 2016 ...

Fundraising events in 2016 included the Gala Banquet in February, which was a fantastic evening enjoyed by all. Thanks to the generosity of donors, diners, and bidders, this raised nearly £3,000.
The craft fayre raised £230, the village lunches raised over £400 and the produce show held in Glebe House garden raised over £800 (thanks to Ross and Annabel for letting us pitch camp there for the afternoon).
The very successful quiz night raised over £350 and, for those of you who missed it, Liechtenstein is bordered by Austria and Switzerland.
The Catworth Cinema Club had another cracking year raising over £1,600 with the highlight of a Cambridgeshire premier of 'The Doo Dah Man' attended by the Director Claude Green.
In May the Catworth Amateur Theatrical Society held its fifteenth home grown murder mystery premiere, with a four course banquet as well as the Golf Club murder investigation; this raised over £800 and starred Julie Daniel as the golf pro, Rachel McCreath as a not so grieving widow, Paul Goodyear as Head Greenkeeper, Pete King as Vice Captain, Steve Kaye as Golf Club bar manager and Pippa Ellson as bar maid (see photo taken by Andrew Moore as Chief Inspector Driver).

Events in 2015 ...

2015 saw the Village Hall host a wide range of activities.
These included eight film nights organised by the Catworth Cinema Club (including a packed house for a sing-a-long to Mamma Mia).
Villagers also enjoyed three village lunches, the popular Quiz Night, the Murder Mystery "The Poison Pen" (which reflected the village passion for writing), a Sparkling Tea Party launching the fund raising for the refurbishment completion, and the Macmillan coffee morning.
In March the Catworth Amateur Theatrical Society presented their version of Cinderella, to great acclaim (see photo); and the year ended with the craft fayre held in conjunction with St Leonard's patronal festival.
All this in addition to the weekly Bowls Club, Art Club and other hirings. The committee covered it's costs and raised £3,500 towards the completion project scheduled for 2018.
