We would like to welcome Ficks in the Sticks and the Stretton Players to our website. This is an opportunity for them to exploit our on-line presence, whilst promoting the Silvester Horne Institute as the major venue in the town. It means a little more work for our volunteers, but it is also gratifying at the same time.

Next Season’s Events

Our Friday Night programme for 2022/23 is coming along well with firm dates for several events. We are finalising the performances and will publish the details soon. Keep watching this space or subscribe to our newsletter for the latest information.

Flicks in the Sticks are also returning with their next film showing in September

Seating Arrangements

Our Auditorium arrangement will continue to be either Theatre or Cabaret style seating. The number of tickets sold and Covid-19 restrictions will determine our preference.

Our Newsletter

We send emails to our free Friday Night at the Horne mailing list whenever we have new or changes to events. Please click the Subscribe button below if you would like to be kept informed.
