Refurbishments to the main hall have already commenced. A new, more secure walkway has been installed by our team of trusty volunteers.
A new scaffolding type rail will be installed by professionals at the same time as the ceiling is replaced. The old tiles will be removed and better, acoustic tiles will be fitted. We hope to modify the lighting system too. This work will mean the hall will be closed to all activities for the week commencing Monday 17th December and will re-open for the last film night of the year on Friday 21st December. All regular users have been informed and accommodated elsewhere wherever possible.
The hall will then be closed again for part of the week commencing 7th January when we shall be having some thermal, electrically controlled blinds fitted to the windows. This will make it much easier to black out for shows and to keep warmth in, but also, we hope, to keep it a little cooler should we experience some more hot summers
We apologise for this necessity and will endeavor to keep disruption to a minimum
We now have a large TV in the foyer area of the Community Centre. Events such as films and theatre produced by ourselves will be advertised on here, along with our calendar of availability. However, anyone with a regular class or event at TCC can also get their message out there.
You should have all received an explanatory letter from Sue with details. The adverts appear randomly, last approx 10 seconds and can appear for as long as you require.
People are really noticing the TV now so what an excellent way to inform prospective customers. Advertisements will be designed professionally by Ross at Flummoxed, (a computer, technical and web design company), in collaboration with the advertiser, maintaining consistency of format and appearance. There will be a small charge for this.
If you wish to know more email firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or follow this link http://www.flummoxed.co.uk/contact/tcc-advert
There will be contact details for Flummoxed from that page too

The summer recess is almost over and activities at the Community Centre will begin to pick up a pace starting with our latest CRTA presentation.
The first show is a double bill of comedy on Friday October 5th at 7.30 pm. Three talented young actors who are the Last Chance Saloon, https://www.lastchancesaloon.org, will take us on two thrilling journeys. The first is Sherlock Holmes and the Blue Carbuncle and the company say:
“We know what you’re asking: What is a Blue Carbuncle? Well, we’re not exactly sure but what we do know was that it was stolen from Meghan Markle on her wedding day and only one person can solve the mystery of ‘whodunit’!
Join Sherlock and his trusty sidekick as they travel from 221B Baker Street through Victorian London (and Waitrose) to a mysterious farm in chase of the evil mastermind. Have Holmes and Watson finally met their match? Find out in this shamelessly high-octane spoof of Sherlock Holmes and the Blue Carbuncle.
With twisted pop songs, an assortment of ridiculous characters and more slapstick British comedy than a Butlins holiday camp, you’re in for a wild and raucous ride!”
With this mystery out of the way there is a rapid costume change and the three come back after the interval to solve the Curse of the Mummy with Montana Jones, a Nazi spy and a love-sick mummy. Expect laughter, music and slap-stick in this monster mash-up. The show has played at the Edinburgh Festival and the company says:
“Using both outrageously catchy pop songs and obscure 80s ballads even your mum won’t have heard of, Last Chance Saloon take you on a whirlwind adventure. For one hour, 3 men will play over 100 characters, with at least 3 different accents. You’ll see them dance, you’ll see them cry, you’ll see things you wish you could un-see.
With good old fashioned British humour and an intriguing interpretation of world history, the Saloon Boys will have you laughing your lungs out, crying out for more and wondering why they don’t all have modelling contracts.”
Tickets – Adults £10 and under 16s £6 for are available now online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/cheshhireruraltouringarts and will be available later from Tarvin Post Office
