Welcome to our News Blog. Here you will find information about events and activities that are taking place in the Dersingham Village Centre.

Forthcoming Special Events, Films, Talks etc.
The events listed below are run by the Dersingham Village Centre Association. These include the Village Voice Live talks and monthly Village Cinema film screenings. There are also special one off events run by the DVCA, often with fund-raising in mind. You can see some details of what we’ve got planned for the future from the listings below.
The dates given below are those that are planned, but they may change as may other details. There will be more information nearer the time. For regular classes and groups which take place in the Centre please see our weekly Blog posts.
Saturday October 26th – Ceilidh. This will be the third year that we’ve run our popular Ceilidh or Barn Dance. Supper included. Tickets cost £12 in advance from Dersingham Post Office or phone 01485 540271. Tickets on the door cost £15 but the event is usually sold out.
Tuesday 29th October – our usual last Tuesday in the month film screening. The October film will be “Rush”, the story of James Hunt and Niki Lauda’s battle for the 1976 Formula 1 World Championship. A great film for all motor racing fans!
Sunday November 10th – Sunday lunch with a Beetle Drive to follow. More details later.
Tuesday 12th November – Village Voice Live. Our regular monthly talks. This month we feature a talk by Jason Crown of Whata Hoot, a Norfolk gin distiller. Learn all about gin, taste it and buy it!
Tuesday 26th November – our usual last Tuesday in the month film screening. The November film is Green Book. A black concert pianist makes a tour of the Deep South accompanied by a red-neck driver and bodyguard. Funny, but also very poignant and superbly acted.
Saturday December 7th – Quiz night. More details later.
Tuesday December 10th – Village Voice Live. As an addition to our usual monthly film screenings, tonight will be a special showing of the hilarious 1953 vintage comedy Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday, starring Jacques Tati.
