Upcoming events at the Village Hall
Journey to Jesus, our unique Travelling Village Nativity, begins in the church at 3.30pm on Christmas Eve, before travelling around the village: following Mary and Joseph to the inn, finding the shepherds trying to keep warm in the cold night air, seeing the Wise Men arrive in search of Baby Jesus, and finally finding him with Mary and Joseph in the 'stable'.
After all that, we will warm ourselves with mulled wine and mince pies in the Village Hall. If it's raining or there's a blizzard, everything will take place in the church.
All welcome - come and join in with one of Braunston's traditions.

We continue to present shows in the village hall under the Centre Stage touring arts banner. The Centre Stage scheme, supported by the Arts Council, provides funding to bring professional companies to small local venues so that villages like Braunston can host top class performances at village rates. These shows are a great opportunity to experience high quality entertainment on your doorstep, from productions that have often won acclaim at events such as the Edinburgh Festival.
It may seem a bit early, but here's a date for next year's diary. On Sun Jan 27th 2019, James Rowland is returning to the Village Hall with his latest one-man show 'A hundred different words for love'. Some will remember that James was here last year with his excellent 'Team Viking', which I think was generally reckoned to be one of the best Braunston theatre nights that we have had.
His latest offering is already getting rave reviews ( 'a triumph', 'stunning', and 'profoundly moving' to quote just three ) so put it in your calendar and watch out for more details.
Other events being planned
Meantime the events committee is hard at work planning plenty of other dates in the hall - apart from everything listed above, we're already looking ahead to next June when there will be another midsummer ceilidh.
Keep checking back for details.
