Military Wives (Ferring Village Hall)
Ferring Film Society will be showing their rescheduled screening of ‘Military Wives’, on Friday 17th September 2021.
We were disappointed to have to cancel our 16th July screening but have everything crossed for the 17th September!
As before, the screening will only take place if: - Government guidelines allow it, AND we have sold 6o tickets, (the minimum number we need to cover the costs).
With regard to the ticket sales, we will check ticket sales on the 10th September at 5.30pm. If the necessary number of sales has not been reached, we will update the posters on Saturday 11th September with a banner, either ‘Going Ahead’, or ‘Postponed – now showing 15th October’. As before, any tickets bought will be accepted for the rescheduled screening.
Anyway, on to the film!
The film is inspired by the real-life Military Wives Choirs network and follows a group of women who have been left behind on the home front while their partners serve in Afghanistan.
Using the catharsis of music to help them cope with the absence of their partners, they found the very first military wives’ choir.
The film will be showing at Ferring Village Hall at 6:45p.m. for a prompt 7:00 p.m. start. Tickets will be sold at North Ferring Co-Op and at Premier Express at South Ferring, Ticket price is £6 which includes tea, coffee or a soft drink and biscuits.
