- Soberton Open Gardens Event (in aid of humanitarian project in Africa)
On Sunday 9th June members of the Rotary Club of Fareham have arranged for a special day in the Meon Valley to raise money for a Rotary supported Sand Dams Project. Soberton Open Gardens is the event, open from 10:30 am to 5:00 pm and it promises to offer a unique view of horticultural excellence in the village. Soberton villagers are enthusiastically behind making this a success knowing it will help the Rotary charity. Admission to the twelve, all quite different, gardens will be by programme priced at £6.00 which can be purchased in a gazebo on the Church Green. There will be a free mini bus to help those without transport to the various gardens and, for a donation, an added bonus of riding in Lotus sports cars to any of the gardens! Half of the gardens are within walking distance of the Green, others are further afield, each with parking. As if this isn’t enough, the village ladies lunch group are assisting Rotarians with the delicious cream teas which will be served from 12:30 in the Church Rooms so head for the Church Green in Soberton. If you need a sat nav use SO32 3PF to get right to the door. Organiser, Rotarian Bob Mussellwhite, says that he has planned for it to be a sunny day in Soberton for the Open Gardens! He said “everyone has been so generous in opening their gardens for this charity we are supporting through Rotary. The sand dam in Kenya will provide drinking and irrigation for a community of about 1,000 people. Visitors will enjoy the beautiful gardens and, at the same time, be supporting this worthwhile project.” For further details contact Bob Mussellwhite at [masked] or telephone him on[masked] and help Rotarians to give a Dam!

- Outdoor performance of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”
The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe. Join their all-female troupe at Tuppenny Barn for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ’The Tempest’ like no other. In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter. And what’s the play about? Well – a shipwreck washes the court of Milan up onto a mysterious desert island, inhabited by magicians, sprites and monsters, where nothing is as it seems. There’s magic, musicality and mystery a plenty! Tickets cost £16 and are available from www.tuppenybarn.co.uk Doors open at 6.30pm, for 7pm show, so bring a picnic and come and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Chairs, picnics, blankets and any other low level accessories are welcome. In case of rain, please don’t bring umbrellas as they block sight-lines for other audience members. Ponchos and raincoats are just as fetching, so please wear these instead.
- Titchfield Festival Theatre: Daphne Du Maurier's "Jamaica Inn"
Titchfield Festival Theatre: Jamaica Inn Nobody does Gothic like Daphne du Maurier. A decrepit inn without guests, wild moors, sinister fogs, smugglers, shipwrecks, a dashing horse thief, an albino vicar, and a murder mystery – all of the ingredients are there when orphaned Mary Yellan arrives at Jamaica Inn to live with her aunt. This unrelenting drama tells her story as she unravels the mystery of her uncle’s business, piecing together tales of depravity and deception along the Cornish coast. Daphne Du Maurier’s, Jamaica Inn is brought to life in this new stage production that is every bit as haunting as the original novel. Sure to keep an audience on the edge of their seats. ******************** Show starts at 7:30pm. Meet you all in the bar area any time from 7pm, just say you are with "Meon Valley Meetup" and give your name at the door as they will have an attendees list, no need to pay as the host will collect your money during the evening. Ticket Prices for Meon Valley Members : £8 Please arrive early as there is limited parking! The overflow carpark is at the Holiday Inn on the St. Margaret's roundabout, but please allow 5 minutes for your walk to the theatre, and REMEMBER to give your vehicle registration number to the hotel reception or you risk a parking fine!
