Thursday 1st November

Peninsular Pix presents Darkest Hour (PG)
Gary Oldman won both BAFTA and Oscar for his powerhouse performance as Winston Churchill in this tale of the early days of the Second World War, when Britain faced the unpalatable choice of taking on the German military might, or suing for peace.

With a stellar cast including Kristin Scott Thomas, Ronald Pickup, Samuel West and a last appearance by Benjamin Whitrow, we see how the fate of the nation was decided behind the scenes.

Remembrance Day Service and Exhibition
The centenary of the end of the First World War will be marked by an exhibition and Remembrance Day Service in St Mary's Church, followed by a gathering and 'poppy tea' in the Village Hall.

All welcome to attend.

Thursday 6th December

Peninsular Pix presents Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (PG)
The sequel - or prequel - is finally here, with more stellar cast members to join the original team . . . Lily James (already seen recently in Guernsey Pie and Darkest Hour) plays the young Donna as we see how Meryl Streep's character in the original film got to where she was . . .

Alexa Davies and Jessica Keenan Wynn play the young Rosie and Tanya, so memorably played by Julie Walters and Christine Baranski in the original, while the younger versions of Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgard are played by Jeremy Irvine, Hugh Skinner and Josh Dylan respectively. Come along and join the singalong!

Sunday 23rd December

Resident's Glühwein evening
Our other extra special social event of the year - an evening sipping wonderful, warm glühwein in Chedworth courtyard.

All drink is provided . . . but any spare bottles of red wine should be left at Wieland's (10 Chedworth) by lunchtime on the day.

Thursday 3rd January 2019

Peninsular Pix presents Paddington 2 (PG)
The loveable bear from Peru returns to our screen and, having seen off the evil machinations of Nicole Kidman in the first film, has settled in with Brown family, with Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins and Julie Walters back in their original roles.

But life - and marmalade - is never that simple and Paddington, voiced brilliantly by Ben Wishaw, faces lots of new challenges wrought by a wide-ranging array of British acting talent, led by Hugh Grant as the latest villain.
