Coffee & Craft
2pm - 4pm
The old Needlecraft Group decided that what they liked most about the group was the tea, the coffee, the cake, the chat and the other crafts. So they’ve come up with a new plan – Coffee & Craft.
It’s a coffee morning – but it’s in the afternoon…
There will be crafts – but they’re not compulsory…
There will be CAKE! Yes, definitely cake…
It’s totally FREE to attend!
If you’d like a coffee or tea, that’s £1. If you’d like cake that’s £1 too.
In December we will be making Christmas Tree decorations out of art straws - think Corn Dolly but with paper tubes! It'll be fun AND festive!

Friday 22 December
Fabulous Friday Festive Film Night!
7pm start, all over by 8.54 for any children attending
You've been hearing about it all summer, now Barbie comes to Catbrook Hall! And what's more there will be FREE pink drinks as well... some fizzy, some non-alcoholic, some very alcoholic. Perhaps you might like to wear a bit of pink as well ... or go all the way with a pink Christmas jumper?
The much-publicised film stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. Barbie takes a ride from her dream house to reality as Little Women writer-director Greta Gerwig takes another cultural icon and lovingly subverts it. Life in plastic is mostly fantastic according to many critics, who have broadly praised the Barbie movie. Empire said Barbie was "painfully funny", while the Independent described it as "joyous from minute to minute". But the Daily Mail called it "uneven and disjointed", while Time said it was "very pretty but not very deep". Now you can decide for yourself...
As usual, £5 on the door (with free pink drinks).
This film is rated 12a: we are starting earlier than normal at 7pm so children won't be too late.
