Based on true events from his childhood, Belfast is a 2021 British coming-of-age drama film written and directed by Kenneth Branagh. It is a poignant story of love, laughter and loss in one boy's childhood amid the music and social tumult of the late 1960s. Buddy's family lives in a largely Protestant district with a few Catholic families, but one day his community and everything he thought he understood about life is suddenly turned upside down.
Buddy's family gets caught in the mayhem and must decide to stay or leave the only place they have ever called home. Through it all, his passionate parents (Catriona Balfe and Jamie Dornan) and quick-witted grandparents (Judy Dench and Ciaran Hinds) keep the joy alive through music and the magic of movies in this feel-good story that reminds us that no matter how far you go, you never forget where you came from.
Doors open at 7. Film starts at 7.30. Refreshments available. Admission £3.

Village Hall news
This year celebrates the 25th anniversary of the opening of Sibford Village Hall. It has been in continuous use since 1957 providing an attractive building in which all kinds of groups have met to enjoy friendship in the company of those sharing their interests. To mark this special Silver Anniversary.year, the Village Hall Committee are arranging a series of events which we hope will appeal to as many villagers as possible.
Dr. Agnew set the ball rolling most successfully last month when he gave us an entertaining talk and wine-tasting.
Please book Saturday March 13th for your next evening with us. For an inclusive price of £1.50 you can enjoy the Belvedere Singers in Concert, a glass of wine and a light, tasty supper. The Belvedere Singers are coming from London in order to treat us to an informal programme of light music from English madrigals through to Beatles, Blues and Barbers Shop.
Instead of our Village Fete, normally held in September, we have decided to hold an Open Village Weekend earlier in the summer. A bumper programme of_events is well in hand, including an Open Village Day, and we shall keep everyone informed a little nearer the time.
We hope to be able to select a Miss Sibford from among our beautiful Sibford young ladies, who will be crowned during-the Open Village Day. The Youth Club have kindly agreed to organise a Disco evening on Monday 24th May when Miss Sibford will be chosen by a panel of independant personalities from Banbury. They will be looking for an attractive, pleasant young lady, aged between 14 and 21. In next month’s Scene we shall include an entry form, so please tell your friends and let us have a really good number of entries.

Very fine, but cold.
Drove Bell to Tadmarton. Called on Mrs Smith at the Rectory, which she is to leave next Thursday, as the new Rector Mr Riddle, Vicar of Rydal, is coming in at the end of the week.
Called on the McDermots at Tadmarton Manor House. Some of the young men about the place have, for the 5th time, pulled off the coping stones on one of the McDermots’ walls. Las year one of them was prosecuted for the offence and got 6 weeks imprisonment at Oxford. Now he has offered a reward for information etc and has had notices put up to that effect. Also a notice that he will turn out all the tenants from his cottages if the name of the offender is not given up. The latter is an unnecessarily harsh and very unwise step. He appears to be very unpopular, and apparently with reason.
Visited school, Mary Lively and Ezra Green.
