FLIX-IN-STIXlogoTalgarth Flix in the Stix recently celebrated its sixth birthday. In November 2008 Talgarth and District Regeneration Group organised the hugely successful screening of Ghostbusters and Mamma Mia! and thus the return of film shows to the Town Hall building. Funding for Audio Visual equipment was secured and Talgarth now enjoys screenings on the third Saturday of each month (January to May and September to November). The screenings all run by volunteers are very well attended and provide refreshments, all you need to bring is a cushion! The group aims to show current films before they are released on DVD.

The next Flix in the Stix is Saturday January 17th. The film will be Pride, (see the Focus Film review here). It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all. (Movie Insider). Meal deals available at the Bakers’ Table Café, Talgarth Mill on the night or £4 on the door.

The ‘Flix’ is part of the wider activities of the Talgarth and District Regeneration Group who also put on the successful Christmas and monthly Rural Markets in the Town. The group welcomes new members at regular meetings and you can find more details out on their Facebook pages or .
