Wales v England
Rugby on the Big Screen
Kick off at 4.45pm, licensed bar
Tony Hawks is coming to the hall in the Spring with his 'new' game show, Trust The Bucket - this will be a hilarious night of silliness and fun, not to be missed! More details will follow...
We are really looking forward to welcoming Mari Griffith to Catbrook Memorial Hall in late spring 2019 when she will tell us more about her exciting career and achievements. The evening is yet to be finalised but is likely to be in two halves with an ‘interview style’ session followed by Q&A’s from the floor.
Mari enjoyed a long career in broadcasting before turning to writing full time. She began her career as a singer then, almost by accident, became a presenter of radio and television programmes for both children and adults.
Apparently Mari was also instrumental as ‘matchmaker’ for our very own Catbrookians, Richard and Sue Cobourne, and I am sure we will find out more about this on the evening too!
Please watch this space for more details …….

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY - 12A
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek). The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music.
