In 1986, Saroo was a five-year-old child in India of a poor but happy rural family. On a trip with his brother, Saroo soon finds himself alone and trapped in a moving decommissioned passenger train that takes him to Calcutta, 1500 miles away from home. Now totally lost in an alien urban environment and too young to identify either himself or his home to the authorities, Saroo struggles to survive as a street child until he is sent to an orphanage. Soon, Saroo is selected to be adopted by the Brierley family in Tasmania, where he grows up in a loving, prosperous home. However, for all his material good fortune, Saroo finds himself plagued by his memories of his lost family in his adulthood and tries to search for them even as his guilt drives him to hide this quest from his adoptive parents and his girlfriend. Only when he has an epiphany does he realize not only the answers he needs, but also the steadfast love that he has always had with all his family in both worlds.

Adults – £5 or £4.50 in advance from your village rep

Littondale Fete is fast approaching!

On Saturday 12th August, we are looking forward to an afternoon of entertainment and competitions for all the family. The afternoon of fun starts at 1pm with Skipton Brass Band and Littondale ‘4’ Road Race; sponsored by The Queens Arms, Litton.

There will be the usual fell races for all ages, Fancy dress (anything you like, the fancier the better, no theme this year!), children’s races, Dog show and all the usual stalls (White Elephant, Books, Tombola, etc.) & new attractions too; including Badger & Bodger’s Cani-orienteering competition, as seen on the BBC TV show ‘Me and My Dog’. Just in case all the activity makes you hungry, tea & cakes will be served in the Village Hall and there will be a hot dog stand and ice creams on the green. The day will close with the Strongmen and Strongwomen competitions.

This year in the Village Hall there will be craft competitions for an Edible monster, hand print picture, painted stone and picture in any medium (including photograph); with classes for pre-school, primary school, secondary school and adults, so everyone can have a go.

If you can & would like to help in any way with the Fete, (Teas, Stalls, setting up, tidying away etc.), it would be very much appreciated. Please let Mark (770419), Ruth (770292), Sarah (770282) or Heather (770050) know.

Enigma and Treasure – A documentary by Geoff Kerr

Friday 12th May 2017 | 7:30pm
£5/ £4.50 in advance or £3 / £2.50 in advance for U16s

The more you learn about a place the more you know you don’t know.
“Enigma and Treasure” is local lm maker Geo Kerr’s 3rd (and sadly his last) full length
documentary about the Dales. Each lm in turn has been a product of the previous one
bringing to light just how much we don’t know about where we live.
“Enigma and Treasure” is a documentary about SSSIs or Sites of Special Scientic Interest.
The lm covers sites in the Yorkshire Dales National Park but in truth it is relevant to the UK
as a whole and as ever the more we learn about this fascinating subject and its wide ranging
inuence on our lives, the more we realise we don’t know it all.

The Wish House

October 4th, 2016 in Past Events by admin 0

Tuesday 22nd November 2016 @ 7:30pm

Grace Ashcroft might be seen by some as a poor old lady, “a dear old soul”, but the tale she tells of her younger days as a lusty farm girl and the strange sacrifice she made to keep “her” man is by turns hilarious and chilling.

Cold Comfort Farm meets Chaucer’s Wife of Bath meets The Picture of Dorian Gray in this tongue-in-cheek version of Kipling’s story of obsessive love.

A story of fierce, insane, possessive love… (and dark goings-on down on the farm).

Adult – £10
Under 16 – £8
