Fernhurst Films present: Maiden

In 1989, skipper Tracy Edwards led the first all-female crew to the starting line of the Whitbread Round The World Race, one of sailingís most physically demanding challenges. Thirty years after 'Maiden' shattered preconceptions, film-maker Alex Holmes draws on archive footage and expert testimony from the crew to relive the behind-the-scenes setbacks and hard-fought battles against Mother Nature, which transformed Edwards and co into trailblazers for gender equality. Duration 1 hr 37 mins. Rated PG. Tickets available 2 weeks in advance from the Fernhurst Newsagents or on the door on the night. Licensed bar with wines, beers and soft drinks available from 7.00 pm, along with cafetiere coffee/tea and complimentary brownie. Criterion Ices on sale in the interval.

Grayshott Folk Club presents: John Blek

A late addition to our programme, we've been patiently waiting to hear when we could invite John back to Grayshott. He made a big impression on our audience in April 2019, when he first visited us from his native Cork in the Republic of Ireland. John is a gentle giant who is a gifted singer/song writer/guitarist. He writes beautiful but powerful songs, many of which reflect his own personal experiences, not all of which have been happy ones.... If you didn't see him last time around, make a special effort this time. He may be a big guy (six foot four) but he can play and sing the most moving and emotive songs. He also has a gentle Irish wit. + Antoine & Owena. Tickets from Des O'Byrne 01428-607 096.

Haslemere U3A talk: 'Controlling 9/11'

With speaker Philip Holt. A day that changed our world forever. Everyone will remember what they were doing when they heard of the attacks on New York & Washington. The events on the ground are well documented Ė but what of the unseen heroes? Phil was an air traffic controller for nearly 40 years and was on duty on the 11th September 2001. In this fascinating presentation Phil will tell the story of his colleagues at the Boston, New York, Washington and Cleveland air traffic centres as they battle to understand what is happening in the busiest piece of sky in the world. Phil had full access to every transmission and phone call made that fateful day and he uses these to dramatic effect. It is however his experience as a controller, instructor, examiner and human factors specialist that gives an unprecedented insight into the most fraught 4 hours in the history of air traffic control.. Guests welcome to two meetings a year. Tea and biscuits provided. www.haslemere-u3a.org.uk. In bad weather, please check with Don Stacey 01428-644 423 that the meeting will go ahead.
