Some Upcoming Events

Dates for Your Diary -


Friday 29th June 2018.

The SonACS Summer Dinner is nearly upon us, being held this year at Bistrot Pierre at the Swans Nest in Stratford-upon-Avon, on Friday June 29, at 6:15 for 6:45pm. 

Here’s a link to the menu -

If you tell Alasdair Lawrance what you would like, he will inform the restaurant, so helping them to cope, and saving you the bother of remembering what you’ve ordered.

It’s a fine social evening, before the two-day Stratford River Festival, and has been thoroughly enjoyable in the past, so do come along and swell the numbers.

Speaking of the River Festival (see below), we’re still looking for volunteers to staff our gazebo.  No special skills are required, other than to find your way to the Pimms stand and back again, without spilling too much.

Let Roy & Anne Clarke (or any Committee member) know if you can help and at what time you would  be available, it will be much appreciated

For a few years the Committee has been concerned that
the touring waterway theatre group Mikron

As a long-term supporter, our chairman has arranged with SONACS to sponsor a performance on the evening of

Friday 24th August 2018 of

Mikron’s new production
‘Get Well Soon’
about the 70th Anniversary of the NHS.


This will take place outdoors in the chairman’s garden, bring your own picnic, chairs and drinks from 6.00pm for a 7.30pm performance at:
The Bridge House,
Church Lane,

Please Note that Mikron's other new production ‘Revolting Women’ will be performed at Rowington Village Hall on the evening before, Thursday 23rd August see
