The murder mystery was a great event that was held in the village hall on the 24th and 25th of May.

The cast played to an audience of 50 on Friday and a sell out audience on Saturday. It was great to see members of the audience in 30’s costume too. Thank-you to everyone who contributed to the success of the event and supported the show.

Easter Weekend at Bramham Village Hall

Christine Suddaby


Easter Sunday Celebration

Bramham Village Hall has hosted a weekend of village events dressed in a marquee that transformed the hall into a magical setting. 

On Easter Saturday Nicola and Stephen Finkle of Low Way in Bramham transformed the village hall into a marquee venue and celebrated their marriage with 150 family and friends.

Village Hall dressed in a marquee for the wedding

Alison Mackie ( a member of Bramham parish council) came up with an idea to use the marquee to create a village event. The bride and groom kindly agreed to offer their marquee facility to the village community groups to put on an Easter Sunday celebration. Lisa Revolta from Bramham Discoverers took up the challenge to organise the event and pulled together teams from the church, the village hall and the NSPCC to put on the event that included afternoon tea, easter egg hunt in the church yard, face painting, easter quiz and easter bonnet parade judged by Nick and Rachel Lane Fox.

Reverend Stanley Menzies from All Saints Church in Bramham commented, “It was so lovely to see a wonderful traditional family event take place in our local village hall and bring together our community to celebrate easter sunday”.

Local residents enjoying afternoon tea 

The Village Hall is used for many events and with its brand new toilets and excellent catering facilities it is fast becoming a very popular event facility and has bookings for most weekends throughout the year. For more information, or to enquire about booking the hall, please contact, or on 07432 330972.

 

 

Bramham raises funds for the NSPCC

Lin Tritschler

A very enjoyable and well attended ceilidh held recently in Bramham Village Hall, raised £1,132.62.

Music and calling was provided by Blackbeard’s Tea Party and committee members cooked a delicious two course supper. Our regular volunteer “kitchen assistants”, were also helped out by two Boston Spa 6th form students who are raising funds to allow them to take part in an overseas project.

Thanks to the generosity of our Bramham supporters, we have donated £2,259.36 to the NSPCC this year.

Thank you audience!
