The Mill Singers (North Dorset’s Favourite Male Voice Choir) will be joined by The Braintree Male Voice Choir ,on tour from Essex, in presenting Music for a Spring Evening at St John’s Church Milborne Port, on Sunday 13th May at 7 p.m. This will be a highly entertaining concert with Songs from the Shows, Spirituals and Folk Songs.

Milborne Port Opera is staging a musical comedy double Bill at the Milborne Port Village Hall from April 4th-7th – the week after Easter.
Gilbert and Sullivan’s Trial by Jury needs little introduction: a musically brilliant courtroom skit featuring a prosecution for Breach of Promise of Marriage. With a none-too-innocent blushing bride, a philandering fiancé, a judge with an eye for the ladies, and a decidedly biased jury, the stage is set for legal mayhem!
More mayhem is in store in their second mini-opera, this time of a murderous nature. Murder at Shakerley House was created by Neil Edwards in 2010 as a full-length operetta; a 15-minute version was performed at The Giant Coarse Acting Festival at the Questors Theatre, Ealing, last November, where MPO was awarded the coveted prize for Best Production by chief judge Timothy West. Now Milborne Port audiences have the chance to see a one-act version, performed in our inimitable Coarse Acting style: When Opera goes Wrong!
The cast includes Horsington residents Chris Bailward and Richard Gaunt (a 3-time winner of the Coarse Acting Competition).
Performances are at Milborne Port Village Hall, 4th – 7th April 2018 at 7.30 p.m.
For all sorts of good reasons lots of people in the two villages are unable to come to the biennial fund-raising supper on 3rd March so the Village Hall Committee have decided to postpone the event until later in the year. Apologies to, and commiserations with, those who have already said they would attend but, hopefully, you’ll be able to make the re-arranged date.
This is a useful source of income for the Village Hall so a good attendance is important. Please try to come to the event: it’s a great opportunity to meet new people, see old friends and have a relaxed and enjoyable evening.
St Margaret’s Hall Committee will be holding it’s popular Village Hall fundraising supper on the evening of 3rd March 2018. Since the date is the nearest to St. David’s Day, there will be a Welsh theme.
Grab a Golden opportunity to meet new people in the villages of Horsington and South Cheriton or reacquaint yourself with old friends.
A ticket costs £15 a head for three courses. Please bring your own bottle(s)
