TFS restarting in September

Dear TFS members and contact listees,

It is a long time since we met at the TCS Arts Centre for drinks, cake, chatter and a film viewing!

Your committee has continued to keep in touch, in various permitted ways, and we know what a loss we have all had to endure, during the last 15 months.

There have been several enquiries regarding restarting, now that cinemas have opened. We are not a cinema, but a film society, and as such must rely on our host school to give permission to use the premises. The Arts Centre is not taking bookings until the next academic year i.e. September.

So, unless government or school management change the advice, we are planning to restart in September.

The theatre will be booked for the 3rd Friday of every month, (except December, 1st Friday.) and we plan to start back with the Danny Boyle film “Yesterday “, on September 18th, the film we should have shown last September!

Then we’ll continue through last season’s program in sequence. If you use the 20/21 brochure, remember the date of the month will be one day out.

We will not print a new brochure, (saving several hundred pounds) but print a flyer to update the old programme. There will be monthly advertising around town, banners on the railings, information on our website and in the local press.

The September film will be free to all comers. Pete, our wonderful treasurer, is hatching a plan to sort out new membership and to take account of any membership monies paid for the cancelled season.

More details will follow when we know we can definitely confirm a September start, and have a health and safety plan arranged.

Meanwhile, we hope you are well in mind and body. And look forward to meeting again.

Best Wishes

Steve Bentley, on behalf of the whole TFS committee
