Events that have happened:

Jenkins’ Ear
The Shanty Singers’ Jenkins Ear, returning to Chilmark following their first ‘visit’ in 2016, were greeted by a packed and appreciative audience on Saturday 10 November. Their performance marked the inaugural use of the Reading Room’s brand new portable stage, so kindly donated by Sarah Sharp. We look forward to the stage being used by further visiting ‘acts’ in 2019.

Pumpkins large and small lit up Chilmark on Halloween night and youngsters on their Trick or Treating rounds dropped into the Reading for a hotdog and some spooky fun. All thanks to Alison Whipp-Long, Barny Guthrie, Kirk Murray-Jones and Jenny Gavin for their organization and hard work on the night. There was no shortage of grateful parents and children.
