Concert: Many of the groups and musicians we have met through our work
with the shop  are interested in taking part and there will be quite a
variety  of  music  – a “miscellany” in the true sense of the word. So
far we have:
· A baroque recorder ensemble
· A classical pianist
· A classical singer
· A flamenco / classical guitarist
· A rock/pop band
·  Guitarists from our monthly guitar session (performing together and
individually)
· A ukulele trio
· A folk duo

And,  of  course, there will be the ever popular opportunity to have a
Langcliffe style singalong and a raffle

Film Night at Settle Parish Church  6.30 for 7pm
Church Street, Settle BD24 9JA

“THE  GOOD  LIE”     Cert 12   In  1983,  a  brutal  civil  war  broke
out in Sudan leaving villages
destroyed. Thousands of orphaned children began to flee,  some walking
thousands  of  miles enduring hardship, death and sacrifice.  Thirteen
years later, Sudanese refugees were relocated to the US where they had
to adjust to a vastly different culture  even as the emotional baggage
of their past haunted them. This film,  “The Good Lie,” is inspired by
their  story,   how  they made new friends and struggled to understand
each other.

With  the  current  news  of  thousands  of refugees moving across the
Middle East and Europe, the story is highly topical.

Doors open at 6.30pm – Film starts at 7pm

FREE ENTRY….…. Refreshments will be on sale

Organised  by The Sudan Group of The Diocese of West Yorkshire and the
Dales   in partnership with Settle Parish Church
