Wilbrahams’ Film Club

 

Wilbrahams’ Film Club 

The Wilbrahams’ Film Club provides our local community the opportunity to watch popular films in the company of fellow villagers in the Wilbrahams’ Memorial Hall.  So if you like watching films and don’t fancy travelling into Cambridge this Club is ideal for you.

Our aim is to make this a social event with the venue opening half an hour prior to the film showing, and refreshments being available at that time.

The membership fee will be £12 per individual for over 18s, and free to those under 18.  15 to 18 year olds will be able to view the films unaccompanied, but those under 15 will need to be with a member.  Around 12 films a year will be shown, mainly on a Friday or Saturday evening, but it hoped to have films being shown at other times as the Club finds it feet (perhaps even “Happy Feet”!).

It’s 12 months, 12 films, 12 pounds – the best deal this year!

Look out for the first screening, it will be a great first night with plenty of surprises.

Cheques should be made payable to the Wilbrahams’ Film Club and sent to:

Paul Lambton, The Barn, 1 Ratfords Yard,
Great Wilbraham, Cambridge CB21 5JT.

(Please ensure all the members’ names are associated with the cheque).

Programme information will normally be sent to members via the email address provided on the application form, as well as being posted on the Wilbrahams’ Website, and Wilbrahams’ Community Facebook Page.

So why not join the Club and save yourself a trip into Cambridge, meet up with friends prior to the film and get to know new people from the villages.

If you have any questions please email wilbrahamsfilmclub@gmail.com
