Ashford Carbonell Village Hall have worked with Flicks in the Sticks for some years now – some huge audiences, some not so huge! We average six performances a year – three in the Spring (February/March/April) and three in the Autumn/Winter (October/November/December. Our team works very hard together with the amazing Flicks people to find films that our villagers, their family and friends would like to see, especially important given we have the Assembly Room film programme to consider which obviously is also close for many of our regular attendees.
All films start at 7.30, price £5, no prior booking is necessary and of course the Bar will be open!
We hope you enjoy the selection – Liz and Clare

FINDING YOUR FEET – Imelda Staunton, Celia Imrie, Timothy Spall
On the eve of retirement a middle class, judgmental snob discovers her husband has been having an affair with her best friend. Shocked, she finds her aspirational world turned upside down as she approaches the ‘third age’ of her life. Unable to deal with what she considers the shame of her predicament, she goes into exile with her estranged bohemian sister, who lives on an impoverished inner-city council estate and is a keen member of a senior citizens dance group based at London’s Sadler’s Wells.
This may sound a rather sad story but it must be one of the most hilarious films of the year!

The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light. The Post marks the first time Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg have collaborated on a project.
