Forthcoming events for your diary:
Following the success of last year’s Halloween family drop-in, Alison Whipp-Long has kindly agreed to organize a repeat event this year. So please put Wednesday 31 October firmly in your family’s diary.

Jenkins' Ear
Saturday 10 November will see the return to Chilmark of the popular Shanty Crew Jenkins’ Ear. The four musicians of Jenkins’ Ear performed to a full house at the Reading Room in September 2016. They enjoyed themselves so much, describing the venue as one of their favourites, that they can’t wait to return. Their Chilmark gig will be the third of their UK 2018 tour which culminates in Grimsby the following night.

Tickets £10; concessions £8; under-16s £5 – please contact Henrietta Cockrell at: or 01747 870450. Early booking advised.
