Saturday 22nd June

Jimmie Jemaine -           Cliff Tribute

Jimmy Jemain treated Elmesthorpe to another fantastic night and had the audience singing along to favourite songs both old and new. It is becoming more difficult to tell which is the tribute act: Jimmy for Cliff, or Cliff for Jimmy!

It was great to see new faces in the audience; many travelling from far away. We hope you had a good evening and we look forward to seeing you all again in the future.

Many thanks to everyone who helped with setting up, teas and coffee, the raffle and all the other 'unseen' bits that contribute towards a successful evening. We couldn't do it without you - thank you.

Next month we have our Hog Roast and Bingo evening; we hope the weather is as kind to us as it was last night! See you soon.


Saturday 25th May

Kelly`s Heroes

Kelly's Heroes treated us to a great night of traditional music last night, with superb musicianship more than ably supporting Tony's powerful voice. Favourite songs included 'The Irish Rover', 'Banks of the Roses', 'The Rose of Allendale' and a selection of Celtic jigs and reels.

A packed audience thoroughly enjoyed the evening and once again showed that Elmesthorpe Village Hall is the place to be!

Saturday 20th April

Alan Becks   Tribute To The Rat Pack

Alan Becks treated us to a night of hits from the famous "Rat Pack': Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr. The audience enjoyed listening to favourite songs including Mac the Knife, King of the Road, Hey Mambo and Sway.

This was another great night at Elmesthorpe Village Hall and prompted some to book up tickets for the rest of the year to avoid disappointment!

Next month we have Kelly's Heroes to look forward to. There are just a few tickets left so phone Robert or Julie to book yours now.

Ticket hotline: 01455 612043.

The Fab4 Beatles Tribute

Saturday 16th March

Beatlemania hit Elmesthorpe Village Hall last night with a trip down Memory Lane (and Penny Lane as well!) with The fab Four.

The Beatles provided the musical soundtrack for anyone who grew up in the 60's, and The Fab 4 re-created this musical journey with a wonderful selection of Beatles hits and favourites.

"That brought back memories!" was typical of the comments from the packed audience, along with, "They were good!"

Next month we have another nostalgic evening with 'A Night with the Rat Pack and the Legends of Swing'. This is sure to be another great evening at Elmesthorpe and tickets are already in short supply. To be sure of a seat, just give Robert or Julie a ring on 01455 612043 and we'll see you there.

Thank you to everyone for all your help again - we couldn't do it without you!


Quiz  & Chips Night

Saturday 17th February

Congratulations to the 'Bakers Dozen' with their spectacular win at the EVFA Annual Quiz 'n' Chips Night. Not only did they win the main quiz cups and prize, but were also medal winners for the Table Quiz. Well done to you all.

A special mention must also go to the 'Quads' who were the real stars of the evening, winning the coveted 'Wooden Spoons'. 'Nuff said.

Thank you for everyone for making it such an enjoyable evening, and a special thank you to Chris's Fish and Chip Shop in Earl Shilton for supplying the chips. We couldn't have done it without you and appreciate the special effort when you stepped up to provide all the extra portions, delivered on time and all hot. Highly recommended - thank you.


Sixties Retro

Saturday 20th January

Over the last twenty years, Elmesthorpe Village Hall has developed an envious reputation of providing only the very best Saturday night entertainment, and last night Sixties Retro rocked the hall with one of our best nights yet!

Not only are all the members of the band superb musicians and entertainers, but they are also some of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet. They entertained us with a string of memorable hits from the sixties' charts and backed this up with great audience communication.

This was a superb night enjoyed by everyone and left the audience with a smile on their face. Thank you.

Also, a big thank you to everyone who contributed to the raffle prizes and helped with the tea, coffee, selling tickets and putting away the tables and chairs. Thank you.



The Wigston Band

Friday 15th December 2023

Last night, the Wigston Band treated us to a fantastic selection of Christmas favourites - both old and new - and got the holiday season off to a cracking good start. We all enjoyed a magical evening of Christmas music, mince pies and mulled wine, and enjoyed singing along to a selection of carols chosen by the audience.

This brings our 2023 season to a close and leaves us only to say a great big thank you to our wonderfully supportive audience and to wish you all a very happy Christmas and a peaceful new year.
