Most Recent Professional event:

Friday 5th April 2019 was a buffet supper followed by Will Finn & Rosie Calvert in concert

Combining key boards, banjo and steel pan, the two folk musicians from Newcastle gave the enthusiastic audience a really entertaining night – playing some old standards as well as some new ones., with great vocal harmonies too. A real melting pot of styles and sound with fantastic energy.

Lamyatt Fete is held every summer – a bit of fun in the field adjacent to the hall (by kind permission of Ern & Jen) and fully utilising the hall as well. Look out for the date and if you live in the village offer to run a stall, or help set up and take down.

ONE OFF PRODUCTIONS

We have held a number of ticketed professional events since the new hall extension opened in May 2016. These augment the longer standing outdoor Shakespeare performance held at Speeds Farm every summer.  A number of the events in the hall are part of the Somerset Take Arts ‘rural touring programme’, which helps bring live theatre, song and dance to the villages and smaller towns. Some of the productions sold out so early booking of any future events is advised.

Watch out for details of these regular events on this website and on the Village Noticeboard and Village Hall noticeboard.
