Cinema at Eye

Murder on the Orient Express (12A)
Crime, Drama, History

Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in this new version of Agatha Christie’s novel, in which the Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot finds himself stranded on a snowbound train in company with thirteen strangers and a corpse. There cannot be a person in the world who does not know the outcome, so the fun will be watching a cast of top-notch performers including Judi Dench, Derek Jacobi, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and many more go through their paces. Let’s hope Branagh can muster up a better accent than Albert Finney’s in the 1974 version.

Tickets available at Eye Pharmacy, The Handyman, or pay on the door.

Doors open 7pm, film at 7.30pm.

Start: March 23, 2018 7:30 pm
End: March 23, 2018 10:00 pm
Venue: Community Centre
Address:
Magdalen Street, Eye, IP23 7AJ
Cost: £5 adult, £2.50 child up to 12 years

World Poetry Day

Hartismere Place care home in Eye is inviting the local community to join residents in celebrating World Poetry Day on Wednesday 21st March.

World Poetry Day is an annual celebration of rhythmic literature and promotes the reading, writing, publishing and teaching of poetry throughout the world. This year, the Care UK team at Hartismere Place on Castleton Way will open its doors from 10.30am for a day of word play and rhyming fun.

Residents at the home will be celebrating the day by reading a number of their favourite poems and rhymes aloud. The care team has also invited Year Four pupils from St Peter and St Paul’s Primary School, as well as the Suffolk Poetry Society, who will be sharing their favourite poems throughout the day.

Residents and members of the public are also being encouraged to put pen to paper to create their own short verses and poems to enter into Care UK’s poetry competition which is taking place nationwide to mark World Poetry Day, the deadline for entries is Tuesday 20th March and the winner will be announced on World Poetry Day.

Home manager, Matthew Calver, explained why Hartismere Place is taking part in World Poetry Day: “Poetry is a powerful tool that can aid expression, communication and emotional resilience. It is also incredibly evocative and can bring back memories and emotions for older and young people alike.

“World Poetry Day presents a great opportunity to share poems from past and present with residents and the wider community. It also fits in really well with our ‘activity based care’ approach here at Hartismere Place and has real therapeutic benefits for residents whether writing or reading, especially those living with dementia.

“We’re looking forward to celebrating this event with a day full of rhyme, and happy times, with the people of Eye.”

Poetry reading and writing is just one of hundreds of great ideas for fun and meaningful activities that can be shared with an older loved one.
