With the up-coming easing of COVID19 restrictions in June 2021, we are currently planning a series of events for the remainder of the year - watch this space for details!
2020 to date: In February we held another very successful Race Night, with ploughmans and bar. The hall was full. We are grateful to our sponsors of races and look forward to the time when we are able to hold another Race Night.
2019: The year kicked off in fine style with the 8th Ecchinswell Pantomime, 'Cinders', playing to three sold-out houses in January, raising over £3,400 for Hall funds.
March saw another successful Race Night, and attendees enjoyed a ploughmans and in April we held our popular quiz evening, with a raffle and a supper with a choice of fish/chicken/sausage or vegetarian dish and chips. Both events were well attended with over 80 people at each and raising over £1000 towards the maintenance and refurbishment of the village hall.
In October we held a cabaret evening, with Clem Johnson singing and many attendees dancing. A ploughmans was provided and the bar was very popular.
2018: This was a successful year with all events being well attended: these included our Race Night, Quiz and Open Gardens held in July. Six villagers opened their gardens and cream teas were served at Ecchinswell House. £700 was raised at the Open Gardens and shared between St Lawrence's Church and the Village Hall for the upkeep of both. Our thanks to everyone who supported these events.
2017: The year kicked off with the 2017 Ecchinswell Village Pantomime - 'The Lonely Goatherd'. Three sold-out performances, with over 400 audience members and over 30 cast and crew, raising a massive £3,000 for the Hall funds and lots of fun for all concerned. The photo (below) might give you some idea of the mayhem involved!
The Masquerade Ball held in September was a phenomenal success and a fantastic evening was had by all with prizes galore. Our thanks to all local people and businesses that helped to make this event such a success - raising over £2,000 for the village hall.
