Cecil Sharp Centenary Celebration! May 24th

Coming up in the Summer is the centenary of Cecil Sharp who died in 1924.

Sharp was great collector of Traditional English music and song and dance particularly in Somerset. He collected and wrote down over 1500 items.

His work had a profound influence not only only on the English folk revival but on English classical music.

Proceeds from the evening will go towards the Theale Village Hall Renovation Fund

Update on Village Hall Renovations

After extensive planning and organisational work by our building group committee members, we’re pleased to say that at last, we will be getting under way with the hall renovation project. We started with the roof on 12th February and following on from that renovation of the barn. These are nearing completion now. A rolling, phased program of works throughout the rest of the building will be undertaken as new grant funding becomes available.

Before we get underway, we would very much like to share our ideas and plans with everyone, and to give you all an opportunity to share your thoughts and questions about the project.

Please note that whilst the renovations are underway inside the Hall during March & April 2024, you need to check the calendar for bookings as the Hall may not be in use. We’ll liaise with all our current bookings to discuss alternatives. Thank you for your patience!

We look forward to seeing you then

Lisa – Chair
