Vic trials_21Sep19Take a stroll back in time this year to see the Victorian Christmas Trials at The Narth Village Hall on the afternoon of Saturday 14th December,  when Gwent Magistrates  will be re-enacting true cases as they appeared in Court back in the Victorian times.

Audience participation and Victorian style dress is encouraged, even if it’s just a hat!

Tickets £5 in advance (£6 on the door, if available).  Proceeds to be shared between Alzheimer’s Research UK (Gwent Magistrate’s selected charity) and The Narth Village Hall.

Doors and licensed bar open at 2 .30pm for a 3pm start.

Numbers are limited so please book in advance, phone Sue on 01600 860373 or use the booking form below: Continue reading
