Over 150 adults and kids turned up for the recent Family Disco and Silent Disco double header at the Hall, strutted their stuff and left happy bunnies. The irresistible power of groove had worked its magic on both young and old(er). Again!
It also helped the Hall to raise a magical £1,100 towards that lighting rig, which will make such an improvement to the Hall’s facilities.
Enormous thanks are due to DJ Mike Fox for pumping out the music, and especially to our sponsors Parker Bathrooms & Kitchens, Floored Design Limited and Diamond Electrical Solutions HQ who helped cover our costs.
And finally, thanks to our team of volunteers who make fabulous things happen in our community.
When Mark Carey, the author and solo performer, walked into Exeter Street Hall, he said it was just the perfect place to perform his one man show “Into The Breach” which is set in a village hall.
The audience really appreciated his performance. Many different characters that were poignant, touching, comedic and full of pathos. They listened so attentively as he took them on George Crocker’s journey.
His discovery of Shakespeare’s Henry 5th and the relevance to his experience in the First World War was very moving.
An appreciative audience thoroughly enjoyed the recent lunchtime concert of cool jazz classics.
And our grateful thanks go to local group Jazzmin for once again supporting the Hall in our fund-raising efforts.
And grateful thanks also to the Sussex Peasant for his kind donation of local produce to provide an excellent accompaniment to the delicious croissants!

We’re naturally disappointed not to have been successful in our bid for £5,000 to provide a professional lighting rig at the Hall – but certainly not down-hearted. We’ll continue to seek out sources of financing so that we can carry on with the maintenance and improvement of the fabic and facilities of our wonderful building.
Grateful thanks go to the hall volunteers who worked so hard on the initial bid – and a special thank-you to the hundreds of people who supported our bid.
