I would like to invite you on behalf of Starry Eyes Talent Show, to our forthcoming event – Veterans Day & screening of the Secret Spitfire Film. It is taking place at Players social club in Westbury, where we are turning the nightclub into a cinema with a 4mtr LED Video Wall.
Players Social Club situated at Westbury Trading estate have given us the venue free of Charge and are helping with the planning of the event.
There will also be stalls from local businesses and fete style stalls & a local veterans groups. We are are planning to raise enough funds for a special Christmas meal and entertainment for the Veterans. We only have 2 stall spaces left!
It is in 1940’s style and our volunteers will be dressing up, plus ticket includes an afternoon cream tea & 1940’s singalong after the film.

Normans Daughter, Sally Parsons, happens to live in Westbury Wiltshire and is going to be attending the day as one of the stall holders to display her art. Sally paints in water colours and will be putting her art on display for the first time at our Veterans Fun Day.
One of our Starry Eyes Committee members Neil Gumm has Cerebral Palsy and in a wheelchair himself, however he has not let his disability interfere with his craft skills and he hand made disability ramps for the venue, Players Club, to make sure people in wheelchairs can access all parts of the club inside and out.
