Panto time is here again, Oh no it isn’t, oh yes it is and the first performance will be tomorrow afternoon at 2.30pm in the village hall. This time the Burwash amateur pantomime society are performing Aladdin, with their own quirky play on it. All the hard work of rehearsals, making and painting scenery and props, organising costumes will come together in what is certain to be another hilarious performance. There are two shows tomorrow with one at 7.30pm too. Tickets are available from The box office in Burwash news agents. if you can’t make it tomorrow there will be three more shows next weekend Friday evening, saturday afternoon and evening. We wish all those involved the best for great shows.

The next open mike night at the wheel Inn will be on Sunday evening from 8pm. anyone who enjoys singing or playing musical instruments are welcome to go along and help to entertain the audience. Always a great way to get yourself some free play time and to gauge the opinions of others of your talents.

The afternoons alway finish will afternoon tea and a raffle. New members and visitors are always welcome to go along.

those who are interested in flower arranging but like me are about as graceful as a lump of mud, then help is on the horizon. The flower House is offering monthly evening workshops. From 5.30pm to 8pm they will instruct and advise and you will get to create your own masterpiece to take home. Each class costs £50 and includes demonstrations by Vicky, Lucy and Hayley and all the materials and flowers required for each arrangement. The next class is on Thursday and you can book a place by calling 01435 884002. This months title is Willow hanging hearts. Mmmm sounds intriguing.
