Photos from our open day

Some photos from our amazing Ember open day today. Thanks to everyone who came down, and to all of our members who helped organise such a great day.

Fingers on buzzers…

Good fun and great fish and chips was had by all at the Ember Quiz night on the 6th Aril! The Drama table headed up by Richard Lyons and Jonathan Clark were this year’s winners – Congratulations!

The Ember Players present “Bothered and Bewildered”

“Bothered and Bewildered” is a bittersweet comedy about two daughters whose mother, Irene, is living with Alzheimer’s disease. While the girls are losing their mum in spirit (if not in body), Irene is forming a new relationship with an invisible companion, the late romantic novelist Barbara Cartland, who helps her write a ‘memory book’ revealing profound secrets she has never shared – even with
her family.

The Ember Players are linking with ‘Homelink’ for this play, a Twickenham based charity staffed by nurses and dementia-trained volunteers to provide a safe, positive environment for patients on a regular basis.

🎭 The Ember Players production of “Bothered and Bewildered” is playing at The Cecil Hepworth Playhouse, Walton on Thames, from Thursday 2nd to Saturday 4th May at 8pm.

🎟 Tickets are £13 and are bookable via www.ticketsource.co.uk/emberplayers or by phoning 07752-655087.

For 2019 the basis of the allocation of the prize money will remain the same as for 2018.  There will be three prizes for each draw and draws will be made bi-monthly, the first one being made in February.  The total prize money for 2019 will be paid on the same basis as the present system (50% of the revenue). Thus if 200 numbers were purchased the pay-outs would be as follows (N.B. the prize value would be decreased or increased proportionately if fewer or more numbers are sold):
5 bi-monthly draws (February, April, June, August, & October) with prizes of:
1st    £100   
2nd     £50    
3rd     £20

Do please support the Ember 200 Club –  the cost equates to just £1 per month per number purchased.  If you would like to have a particular number(s) please indicate this on the form.  If this number(s) has already been sold you will be allocated an alternative number(s). The sooner you apply the more likely you are to have your choice of numbers!  And the good news is that there is no limit to how many numbers you can buy!
An application form is attached which please complete and return to me with your payment (either cash or cheque payable to “Ember Sports Club 200 Club” please).  If you have any queries please telephone me on 020 8398 4622 or e-mail me on malcjen@ntlworld.com.

Ember Big Band Masterclass!

A great feature this week in the Surrey Advertiser about the amazing Ember big band masterclass that took place at Ember Sports Club ahead of the band’s upcoming Christmas concert at Claygate Village Hall.
They were also joined by an extra-special guest, Louise Clare Marshall, singer with the Jools Holland Orchestra! Here’s a copy of the article and some pics from the masterclass.

 


The Ember Players present: "A Bolt From The Blue"

Edward Jones is just an ordinary guy, doing ordinary things – if you count scaling towering electricity pylons for a living as ordinary! Then, the day before his 40th birthday, he gets struck by lightning!
What happens next is, quite literally, incredible. It defies logic and the fundamental laws of nature. It is a very funny and quite poignant story.
BOX OFFICE NOW OPEN
