Current Annual Events

 

Each year, one or two major entertainment events are organised in the spring/ summer and have included musical revues, a Jubilee black-tie party, a Royal Wedding street party, local produce shows, pop-up shops in the church, a weekend-long Arts Festival in 2013, a Parish-wide exhibition, events and concert for the WW1 Centenary 2014 and a Harvest Festival Weekend, including the opening of the Agricultural Collection, in 2016.

 

The Inter-Village quiz is held at the Community Hall at the end of January. It is usually organised by the previous year’s winning team for teams of four/five.

A delicious fund-raising curry lunch is provided in January every two years by Upper Wraxall residents Marj & Geoff Lang. It is very well attended (Marj is a past Masterchef champion!) and we normally raise £500 - £1000 for local causes.

Wine tasting evenings have recently introduced by the Community Hall. To be held twice a year, the most recent one (April 2018) matched food, cooked by local resident Marj Lang, with a variety of white and red wines provided by Tristan Darby from the Bristol Wine School. Very informative and enjoyable.

A Silent Film & Live Piano evening is held in October each year at the Community Hall, featuring black & white silent movies from the 1920s. Various chill dishes are also offered.

The Bonfire & fireworks display takes place on 5th November in a field near the Community Hall. Alongside a huge fire, a professional firework display is set off. A selection of BBQ/grilled food and refreshments are on offer.

 

The Take 5 Choir performs two concerts a year in St James’ Church - a Summer Concert in July and a Christmas Concert in December, often with the RUH choir. These concerts are always well attended.

              

Carol singing takes place in mid-December by the pond in Upper Wraxall. Song sheets, hand bells and mulled wine are provided and all are welcome.
