New Year - New Look! During the first three weeks of 2019, the hall is being decorated inside after the recent renovations. Here are 'before' and 'during' pictures...

We are really looking forward to welcoming Mari Griffith to Catbrook Memorial Hall in late spring 2019 when she will tell us more about her exciting career and achievements. The evening is yet to be finalised but is likely to be in two halves with an ‘interview style’ session followed by Q&A’s from the floor.

 

Mari enjoyed a long career in broadcasting before turning to writing full time.  She began her career as a singer then, almost by accident, became a presenter of radio and television programmes for both children and adults.

 

Eventually, wanting to make programmes rather than take part in them, she turned to directing and producing, both for the BBC and as an independent programme-maker.  More recently she has launched herself into yet another career, this time as a writer and has written two novels - Root of the Tudor Rose, which the Catbooks Book Club will be reviewing at their January meeting! -  and, more lately The Witch of Eye.

 

Apparently Mari was also instrumental as ‘matchmaker’ for our very own Catbrookians, Richard and Sue Cobourne, and I am sure we will find out more about this on the evening too!

 

Please watch this space for more details …….

THE CHILDREN ACT (12A)

 

As her marriage to Jack (Stanley Tucci) flounders, eminent High Court judge Fiona Maye (Emma Thompson) has a life-changing decision to make at work - should she force a teenage boy, Adam (Fionn Whitehead), to have the blood transfusion that will save his life?

Her unorthodox visit to his hospital bedside has a profound impact on them both, stirring strong new emotions in the boy and long-buried feelings in her.

FILM NIGHT

 

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY - 12A

 

 

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek). The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music.
