Northiam Showtimers will be making a welcome return to the stage next weekend. Keep Calm and Carry On is their usual mix of music, dances and sketches, this time looking at the lighter side of events during the 1940s. If you enjoy the likes of Dad’s Army or the sounds of Glenn Miller, The Andrews Sisters or Vera Lynn, then this is right up your street! To add to the atmosphere, audiences are encouraged to dress up 40s style (you can recycle your costumes at the Jubilee Dance). So have a rummage and reserve your ticket by calling 01424 882076. Performances are 7.30pm on Friday 27th April and Saturday 28th April, with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. Refreshments and a bar will be available at all performances.

Services (22nd): 8am Holy Communion, 10.30am St George’s Day Morning Praise.
