    Two world-class musicians come together – Christine has one of the best voices you’ll ever hear and Michael is rated as one of the world’s top guitarists. More information here. Buy tickets.

Do book early for concerts because the hall has limited capacity and we often sell out weeks, or even months in advance. An updated listing for the rest of 2019 and the first half of 2020 can be found as a PDF file here, or on our Events page.

More events in Alstonefield and surrounding villages can be found in the Community/Parish Newsletter, a link to which can be found on the home page of the Butterton website here.

VE Day 75

The Parish Council would like to hear from residents having ideas for the 75th anniversary celebrations of the end of World War II in Europe. The event, to be held on a revised bank holiday date of Friday, 8th May 2020, will be celebrated throughout the nation with, amongst other things: buglers playing The Last Post, pipers playing The Battle’s O’er, pubs taking part in a Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of WWII, Town Criers Crying for Peace Throughout the World and churches ringing their bells.

The National Association of Local Councils is encouraging the organisation of celebrations such as 40’s-themed street parties, barbecues and firework displays. If anyone has any ideas, or wishes to become involved in the planning of any events, please contact the Parish Council.
