Fernhurst Films present: The Hunt for the WilderpeopleRaised in foster care, troubled orphan Ricky, is shipped from home to home before finally getting a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside with his new foster family: loving Aunt Bella, cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac.

Tickets on the door on the night. Licensed bar and wines, beers and soft drinks available from 7.00 pm, along with cafetiere coffee or tea and complimentary brownie.

Grayshott Folk Club presents: Joe Topping & Scott PoleyIn my opinion, Joe Topping is the best male singer we have had singing for us at Grayshott in the seven years we've been going. He also happens to be a brilliant guitar player, a fabulous song writer and what's more, he's a really nice guy. Scott Poley is an exceptional guitarist and pedal steel guitar player who has played on some of my favourite albums with Cherry Ghost. Together they make some wonderful sounds and you might well ask: why has it taken so long for you to invite them back to Grayshott again? Plus Support (tbc).
