Brockhampton Community Cinema

The wait is over and Brockhampton Community Cinema is re-opening its doors on Thursday 14th October.

Doors open at 7.30pm and screening will commence promptly at 8pm.

The bar will not be open for this inaugural screening.

The choice of film is yet to be made but all will be advised of it, through the usual channels, as soon as it is known.
Entry to the first screening will be free of charge to all regardless of whether or not you were previously a season ticket holder. We want to use this screening as a soft opening in order to judge the Village’s interest, enthusiasm and support for re-opening the Cinema.
We should also appreciate any suggestions and ideas to make future Cinema evenings as enjoyable and appealing as possible.
In line with the Hall’s Covid Precautions Policy, the organisers will require face masks to be worn upon entering and leaving the Hall, and moving around, and for the hand sanitiser to be used at the entrance. As far as is practicable, the organisers will arrange a “socially distanced” seating layout and will keep the Hall ventilated.
Adjustment for credit against previous unused season tickets will be made when we decide upon the cost of tickets for the forthcoming season.
Our Cinema is a wonderful facility and all involved very much hope we can expect a large and enthusiastic audience, comprising both regular and new customers.

Village Hall Re-opening

The Rhodes Memorial Hall is re-opening as from Monday 19th July 2021.

Although the Government has announced the lifting from 19 July of all legal restrictions which previously affected the use of the Hall, it has placed a continuing responsibility on businesses (which for this purpose includes the Management Committee of the Hall) to take all appropriate steps to maintain the containment of the Covid 19 virus.  In its turn, the Committee will, as a condition of hiring, place such responsibility upon those hiring the Hall. These responsibilities are explained in the ‘Notice to Users’ which may be downloaded on this link (PDF).

Rhodes Memorial Hall – opening arrangements 17/5/21

RHODES MEMORIAL HALL – UPDATE

Following the announcement of the latest relaxations in the lockdown, the Hall Management Committee have decided to re-open the Hall with effect from 17th May for meetings of up to 6 persons starting with the Parish Council meeting that evening. Social distancing will continue to need to be observed and face masks worn.

If the final restrictions are indeed removed as currently anticipated with effect from 21st June, the Hall will fully open on that date subject only to any continuing regulations which may be imposed by the Government as a condition of the final lifting of the lockdown.

Georgina will be taking provisional bookings now.

In recognition of the generous Government Support Grants which the Hall has received over the period of the closure of the Hall, the Committee has decided to waive all hire charges for the Hall until further notice for non-profit village user groups in the hope that this will assist those groups which had previously used the Hall to resume their activities as soon as possible. Other users will continue to be subject to the previously published hire charges.

Gordon Day
Chairman.
