Dunkirk

DunkirkMeavy Parish Hall
Friday 2nd March

Doors open at 7:00pm, film starts at 7:30pm

Admission £5.00, pay at the door. 

Children under 12, admission £2, must be with an adult.

Certificate: PG         Runtime: 106 min. 

The film depicts the dramatic and true story of the Dunkirk evacuations from a war torn beach and harbour in Belgium, following the seemingly doomed plight of allied soldiers in World War II. As the enemy forces close in it seems the troops have nowhere to go, but help is at hand and a fierce battle ensues.

Through May and June 1940, 400,000 British soldiers are holed up in the French port town of Dunkirk. The only way out is via sea, and the Germans have air superiority, bombing the British soldiers and ships without much opposition. The situation looks dire and, in desperation, Britain sends civilian boats to try to evacuate the beleaguered forces. This is that story, seen through the eyes of a soldier amongst those trapped forces, two RAF fighter pilots and a group of civilians on their boat, part of the evacuation fleet.

See Cinema.Meavy for more details and trailer.

Fallen Cedars are rooted on the edge of Dartmoor.  A band created from  a diverse range of musical backgrounds and creative wishes.  We play  original songs and a few obscure covers.  They say: "Our music is uplifting, languid,  lilting and melodic; a sound of indie folk mixed with lounge; acoustic and electric."

Musical influences vary from modern folk and indie to blues and jazz: not definitive but here's a few names - The Waifs, The Staves, Fairport Convention, First Aid Kit.

See the Fallen Cedars website for more about the band.

Mitchell and Vincent are an acoustic duo with guitars and fiddles.

And David and Graham make their own instruments.

Knowing that they are both guitar makers, you are asking “Do they play their own guitars?” Dave does indeed play a guitar he made, It’s a wonderful sounding nylon strung classical guitar with a cedar top – they’ve done so many gigs in the last few years that it’s starting to look a bit tatty – but luckily Dave has a couple more he’s made as spares for when the time comes to retire the old girl! Graham finally got round to making himself a violin, which is now one of his gigging violins. They're both making more instruments should you be interested in buying one.

And the music they play?  Take a listen at Mitchell and Vincent Music.
