Roshni is a beautifully intimate crafting of dance and live music, transporting and uplifting the audience on a journey of joy. This soul-stirring performance is a captivating combination of Kathak dance, with live music from a global palette of styles. The sumptuous music from different lands features kaval and violin led by the bold rhythms of Tabla percussion.

Roshni brings together Sonia’s distinctive style of dance, rooted in the traditions of Kathak from Northern India, yet reimagined in the context of her lived British experience, with diverse musical genres and artists, ranging from South Asia, Middle East and Eastern Europe and celebrates the rich diversity of our global community.

Many thanks to all that came the Fundraising Memorial Hall Quiz on 16th March. Special thanks also to Quizmaster Roger Burgess, barman Richard Gosbee, Diane Pullen and her very kind, capable assistants for stepping in to be an enormous help at short notice, to Sue and Eileen for scoring, and Howard Lilley for running the ‘Heads and Tails ‘ game. Also thanks to Cranbrook Fish Bar for the delicious sausage and chips which went down very well. Also thanks to Hazel Gosbee, Heather Collins Collingworth, Fiona Brenna, Iris Osborne, Pearl Cullingworth and, of course, Lester Gosbee. A total of £523.20 was raised for Memorial Hall funds.

We meet one evening a month and you can take on as much or as little as you want. If you’re interested or want to find out more please contact us.

Thank you

Thank you all for a wonderful evening opening the refurbished Memorial Hall and unveiling the new Meeting Room, named in memory of the 64 Frittenden residents who served in WWII.

Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make the event a success, and to Shabba for a truly fab performance.

Huge thanks to everyone who donated and fundraised to make this happen.

I hope you all enjoy using the new-look spaces and facilities, including our top quality kitchen, free internet and performance equipment.

Watch this space for an exciting potential development… Films on the big screen, anyone…?!

Memorial Hall Prize Draw

The Frittenden Memorial Hall Prize Draw subscription for the year 2022/23 are now due.

For anyone who is new to the village this is a little bit of fun each month. Each member has twelve chances to win a cash prize. The greater the numbers of members, the larger that cash prize will be. Half of the monthly proceeds are given away in first, second and third prizes.

The cost is £12.00 for a year’s Subscription and the other half of the proceeds go towards maintaining the Memorial Hall.

I am sure you will all have noticed the refurbishment that has been going on at the hall. Some of you will have had a chance to see for yourselves just how magnificent it now looks. The cost of heating and lighting will obviously be vastly increased this year, so it is, more than ever vital to help offset this extra expense, by getting as many members as possible.

Defibrillator Update

The defibrillator is back in position at the Memorial Hall. Thanks to Securelec for their assistance.

The village has two otther defibrillators – on the outside of the Bell and Jorrocks pub, and at Larchmere care home.
