NEW FOREST KNOWLEDGE CONFERENCE

See attached Invitation

The New Forest National Park Authority and the New Forest Centre are working together to host a conference in October on the New Forest’s History and Archaeology.

The conference is a two day affair in Lyndhurst at the end of October with a range of speakers including members of local history and archaeology groups covering an eclectic mix of subjects. We hope it will be of interest to a lot of New Forest residents as it will give them a chance to discover more about the New Forest’s history and potentially find out how they can get involved in future.

LYNDHURST DRAMA & MUSICAL SOCIETY

Murder In Play

Priorswell Manor is the seemingly idyllic setting for a genteel house party. The country seat of the Cholmondleys sees Lady Cholmondley hosting a weekend of convivial conversation and preprandial drinks. But all is not well! Sinister Things are afoot. A dangerous escaped prisoner is on the loose in the neighbourhood, and who knows what the mysterious Mr Papadopoulos has in mind.

As tensions rise blood is spilled and is that a whiff of poison in the air?

Lyndhurst Drama and Musical Society is delighted to present Simon Brett’s comic whodunnit, directed by Debbie Murray. It will keep you guessing to the end while wiping away tears of laughter!

Performances are on 26/7/8 October at 7.45pm in the Vernon Theatre, Lyndhurst. £8 for 26 October and £9 for 27 & 28 October. Tickets can be bought from the Lyndhurst Community Centre from 4 October – for telephone bookings please ring 023 8028 2729.
