Hungerford Jazz Forum

until 11pm

Have you got an idea for a mini set on Friday? That would be great and we will try to fit in as many mini sets as we can.

We have a PA, music stands, music books and a great stage set up so come along and join in the friendly and supportive atmosphere and play or sing.

If you are not a muso, just get in a party mood and support the musos as you always do.

There is a bar with good prices and don't forget that it is only £2 towards our costs to get it. Who else can say that after 16 years the price is the same.

We hope to see you there,

George and Andy

Jack and the Beans Talk

Puppet Theatre

and at 1pm

Was it a dream or did I hear a talking bean?

Jack lives on a small farm with his mum and very little to eat. He likes to talk to the birds, his cow and anyone who will listen.

Imagine his surprise when he swops his cow for some magic beans and starts to hear a whispering in the breeze and a giant rumble in the sky ...

Charming and inventive with plenty of interaction, an enormous beanstalk, bags of gold and a smelly old giant. Jack and the Beans Talk is a cautionary tale about what might happen if you throw things out of the window!

The performance is 45 minutes with time at the end to show puppets and answer any questions from the public. Suitable 3-7 years but younger and older children are welcome. The House and café will be open from 10am.

Available from Shaw House 01635 279279 or online www.westberkshireheritage.org/whats-on
