The Living Advent Calendar

To help the village celebrate together the weeks leading up to Christmas, we have once again organised a Living Advent Calendar. Each evening during Advent there will be a newly-decorated front window or garden for people in the village to see.  Each house will have decorated one window or part of their garden, visible from the road during the evening from 5.00 pm to 9.00 pm, on a Christmassy theme.  Please click here to see a list of the houses involved together with the location map.

‘West Side Story’ – 9 December

Adderbury Cine Club will be showing ‘West Side Story’ in the Institute – doors open at 7.30 pm and the film starts ay 8.00 pm.  Starring Ansel Elgort, Rachel Zegler and Ariana DeBose, ‘West Side Story’ tells that love at first sight strikes when young Tony spots Maria at a high school dance in 1957 New York City. Their burgeoning romance helps to fuel the fire between the warring Jets and Sharks — two rival gangs vying for control of the streets. Click here to buy your tickets or get them at the door. There will be a bar selling wine, beer, soft and hot drinks.
