Ardingly Cinema: Ardingly Cinema are pleased to confirm that the next Ardingly Film will be “Lady in the Van”, starring Maggie Smith and will be screened at Hapstead Hall on Thursday, 11th February at 7.30pm. Tickets can be purchased for £6 from Fellows Bakers, the Ardingly Post Office, the Cosy Cafe or on the door on the night.

Lady in the Van tells the true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular Miss Shepherd, a woman of uncertain origins who ‘temporarily’ parked her van in Bennett’s London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. Their unique story is funny, poignant and life-affirming. In this role, Maggie Smith has been nominated for a BAFTA for Leading Actress, and a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy.

The door at Hapstead Hall will open at 7.00 pm and the film starts at 7.30 pm. Refreshments will be available before the film and during the 15 minute interval.

Country Market: Did you know that Ardingly has a country market which is held at Hapstead Hall in the centre of the village with ample free parking and is open from 10am til 11am every Thursday morning ?
