Past events

 Scroll down to see a selection of recent events at Marchington Village Hall.
The hall was alive with the sound of music when the Uttoxeter Town Band visited on December 9th. They played a jolly set of sing-along songs from 'White Christmas' to 'Jingle Bells' and 'Hark the Herald Angels' to 'Silent Night'.  The audience enthusiastically joined in and, after several visits to the bar, demonstrated fine acting skills to 'Twelve Days of Christmas'.
35 budding crafters enjoyed a lovely evening making their own festive wreaths, jollied along with a little mulled wine.
MRS KAY BAGSHAW -  Born 8th September, 1923 
In celebration of the late Mrs Bagshaw’s 100th birthday, Nick and Adrian kindly opened their home to 83 guests. In 1963, a young Nick moved into Marchington Hall with his mum, Kay and the rest of the family. The couple guided guests around their historic house, telling stories from the past and how they had maintained the house during recent times. By doing so, they generously contributed towards the cost of building a new oak framed canopy at the community’s Village Hall. Marchington Hall remains a private residence but is also one of our most important local landmarks, with its origins dating back to around 1680. 
 Many of the guests went on to enjoy tea and cakes in the Village Hall’s John Ellwood Lounge. 

On September 5th we welcomed Charles Hanson (BBC Bargain Hunt and Antiques Roadshow) along with his colleague, Marchington resident, Nick Bagshaw to the Hall. Visitors brought along a variety of memorabilia for expert valuation. Tea, coffee and cakes were served by the hall's volunteers.
Twenty six eager learners tried their hand at making hand-crafted chocolates under the guidance of an expert while tasty cocktails were served from the bar. They left with big smiles and a bag full of chocolates. Maybe the next event should be weight watching?
Sixties tribute band, the "Revolvers" went down a storm in February playing the music of the Beatles, the Kinks, Herman's Hermits, the Beach Boys etc. The dance floor was full and  the bar was well stocked. The Boys enjoyed themselves too and said they would be delighted to return one day.
Organised by MADS to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III in style.  Around 70 guests, suitably dressed in black-tie garb enjoyed a 3-course meal in a beautifully decorated hall.
A great fun show containing 3 short plays, expertly executed, as always,  by the cast of MADS playing to a full house on 3 consecutive nights in April 2023.
Organised by the Bull's Head Football Club in November 2022.
A tribute band called Landslide played all our favourite Fleetwood Mac hits to a packed house.
Also in November was the grandest ever performance by MADS, Lionel Bart's 'Oliver' musical.  No seats left in the house on those nights!
