Heptonstall Social and Bowling Club

Heptonstall Social and Bowling Club has been running since the late 1960s, welcoming all members to benefit from our club. We offer bowling, snooker and pool to all members wishing to join, and have many of our own bowling and snooker teams.

The club is open on various nights, depending on the season and what social events are being hosted.

As a club, we can offer private functions such as wedding receptions, birthdays and funerals at reasonable prices. We have kitchen and bar facilities that can be used for your own individual requirements, and a stage big enough for live acts, bands and DJs.

The club is used for regular events throughout the year, which are suitable for all ages, including: playgroups, sequence dancing, exercise classes, and worship. Each year we hold our own events, such as: Burns’ Supper, the local pantomime in November, Heptonstall’s Got Talent, New Year Eve free party, our famous Bonfire Night, and the Heptonstall Village Team Xmas Lunch for our older residents. There are other events in between, according to the time of year.

The club has a new website site, which can be accessed via this link.

Busy Autumn Ahead

The nights may be drawing in but there’s plenty of fun events happening in the next couple of months, all listed on our Events page. A few highlights include:

A beer and cider festival at the White Lion on the weekend of 2 – 4 October, with an apple pie competition on the Sunday.

A service of blessing for pets at St Thomas’ Church on Sunday 4 October, followed by a peal of bells.

A concert at St Thomas’ by Hebden Bridge Brass Band on Saturday 17 October.

And then the village gears up for a busy season of Hallowe’en events at the Bowling Club, Christmas fairs at both church and chapel, and much more.

 

Family Ceilidh draws closer

The Ceilidh at the Bowling Club, with local band Three Men and a Box, is less than a fortnight away on Saturday, 7 March, from 6.30pm.

The band appeared at the Heptonstall Festival last September and at the Burns Supper Night last month. Justin, Mark and Daz came together last year to form the band. They play a wide selection of music from Reggae, folk and their own compositions.

Three Men and a Box 2Mark plays guitars, Daz plays bass and Justin plays piano accordion. Mark has played with other bands over the years as has Daz who currently plays in a number of different bands. Justin has played with mostly Scottish ceilidh bands over the years and still competes at national level.

Everyone of all ages is welcome, with or without children. The lights will go down and the music will turn up a notch from 9pm.

Don’t worry if you’ve never tried ceilidh dancing before, the band have secured the services of a ‘caller’ for this night, so those of you who want to take a turn on the dance floor, bring your dancing shoes!

Tickets will be £5 (children free) and there will also be a good value  supper food, home-made potato and meat pie, or potato, cheese and onion pie, with either baked beans or peas, for £2.50.

Gail King, event organiser, said: “Please support this event, as it is a valuable venue for us all in Heptonstall, and it would be good to get the place swinging.”

Tickets from Tony at the Post Office, or on the night on the door. The event will benefit Heptonstall Village Team, which organises events for older members of the community.

Burns’ Supper at the Bowling Club
