Wantage & Grove

Film studies group

Group leader: Ian Rogers - contact by email using the form on the CONTACT page.

We meet monthly on the 2nd Tuesday in the month, at 1.30 pm prompt in Grove Parish Church Hall. The Group is for members only.

A wide range of films is shown and there is a £2 charge to cover the cost of hiring the Hall and providing refreshments.

Some members who have “done their bit” for many years now feel it is time to step down and let someone else take over. In 2020 help is required with technical support for the Film Group. Please speak to any member of the committee if you would like to offer your help or discuss further.
