Pine Grove Pictures Presents The Grand Budapest Hotel
On Friday 12th September Pine Grove Pictures presents The Grand Budapest Hotel. We have two performances of this. For the first time ever there will be a matinee.
Cinema times are 2.30pm and 8.30pm. Doors open an hour before.
THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL recounts the adventures of Gustave H., a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune — all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.
We are pleased to be hosting a special exhibition of paintings by Open Studios and Crowborough Arts. This will be in the cafe area between 30th August and 17th September. Above is an example of the work of Sandie Donaldson. Looks to be an excellent exhibtion.

Fretful Federation Mandolin and Guitar Orchestra
A FIRST FOR CROWBOROUGH
A mandolin and guitar orchestra will be performing in Crowborough for the first time on Friday, October 10th.
The Fretful Federation Mandolin Orchestra are a Sussex based group of 25 mandolinists and guitarists who play a wide range of material including exciting contemporary music by living composers, as well as classical and popular pieces and concertos.
This October, they are excited to be playing in Crowborough for the first time with two special guests, local soprano, Maria Porter and flautist, Katherine Rogers. The program is likely to include work by Purcell and Handel as well as some popular tunes in the orchestra’s unique style.
The instrument first became popular in Britain in the 1880s when the rising standard of living of city-dwellers meant that middle class women could break free from repressive social conventions and enjoy leisure pursuits including communal music making. Popularity declined after the First World War and there are now only about 20 in Britain.
The concert takes place at The Crowborough Community Centre on October 10th at 7.30 pm.
Tickets are available from Cross Country Stores, Crowborough, on-line at www.wegottickets.com/event/288558 or on the door.
Swift project - Digital skills for women who mean Business
A great new and free opportunity for women in a new course which runs from 1st October to 28th February.
East Sussex County Council is working with mdhub to deliver ‘the SWIFT Project, for women who mean business’ funded by the Government Equalities Office.
The project is FREE and aims to encourage women in rural areas, who are interested in setting up their own business, to attend training with the objective of growing an existing business or starting one up. The project focuses on delivering IT and business/personal training at here at the Centre and at Robertsbridge. Alongside the training, participants will be able to attend regular peer to peer groups to share knowledge and experience with the support of a business mentor.
This is a fantastic opportunity for entrepreneurial women who would like to set up their own business or go self-employed, as not only will it will equip them with the skills and knowledge they need, but more importantly, the confidence to take the plunge and bring their business idea to fruition. Participates will also benefit from ongoing support and flexible, part-time training modules that meet the particular needs of the women.
