On Saturday 7th July the Friends of Helmsley Arts Centre held a Quiz Night to raise funds for the Centre.
The evening was most enjoyable, lots of fun and healthy competition. The 70 questions, divided into 7 topic sections, proved to be both taxing and entertaining. Each member of the winning team received a £5 HAC voucher donated by the Quiz Masters. The losing “ flakiest!” team members each received a pack of Cadburys Flakes. The Bar was well supported and the Raffle was a popular side event. Katrina thanked everyone for attending and reminded us that there will be another Quiz Night on 8th November.’
HOLLYWOOD COMES TO HELMSLEY !!!
The stars were certainly twinkling as the red carpet welcomed Pennita’s Hollywood Glamour Fashion Showcase to The Arts Centre on Thursday 19 April.
Ladies both on the catwalk and in the auditorium looked stunning and the black tie clad gentlemen who greeted them and served fizz and canapés added to the sparkling evening’s attraction.
The bubbles got everyone into the mood to enjoy the wonderful outfits provided by Pennita and modelled by professionals and non professionals with equal panache.
Dominic Goodwin, the compere for the Evening was in his element surrounded by such beauty and brought his inimitable ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the whole occasion.
There are so many people to thank (apologies to any areas omitted) , the organisers, the sponsors, the models, the dressers, the hair and makeup artists, the florists, the photographers, the caterers, the technical crew, the designers, the front of house team, those who donated raffle prizes and those who ran stalls, and of course everyone who attended, without whom, the evening could not have been such a huge success.
Special thanks to Pennita and to John Edmondson from the Friends Team who worked so closely to bring their vision to pass.
Together we raised just short of £2000 for the digitalisation of the cinema equipment.
Fortune's Spear raises £365!!!
On Sunday 22 January over 40 people gathered at Knipe’s Hall in Helmsley, the lovely home of Martin Vander Weyer, to hear him talk about his recent book Fortune’s Spear, the fascinating story of a financial scandal in the City in the early part of the twentieth century. The book has been quite rightly highly acclaimed in the National Press.
Afterwards people chatted over afternoon tea and Martin signed copies of his book and answered questions about both the book and the history of his home.
A huge thank you to all who helped to make the event so enjoyable and those who supported.
An enormous thank you of course to Martin for the talk, the generous offer of his home for the afternoon and for donating a third of the proceeds of the sales of his book on the day.
A wonderful £365 was raised towards the digitalisation of the Arts Centre Cinema equipment.
