“Steve Fletcher will be starting in the Club on Friday Feb 27. He is a very experienced chef – and has done lots of different types of catering in Cornwall and abroad.”
“You have all been so generous with your support over the past few months that we have had to turn people away – so we will be open for 2 nights from this week – ie Friday and Saturday.”
Visitors to the Farmers Market often comment on the fantastic display on our veg stand. The wide variety of beautiful fresh vegetables and fruit all laid out with great bunches of leafy greens, different kales, herbs, bright orange carrots, baskets of unusual chillies and knobbly looking roots, along with all the staples: spuds, parsnips, onions, etc.
The Tolmen Centre is now an established Arts and Performance centre with a county-wide reputation. We have a regular programme of theatre, music, films and general entertainment. However, the Tolmen Centre is also available for all sorts of other things. Click to find out more.
The Tolmen Centre is a village facility entirely run by volunteers. It’s open to all, and everyone is welcome to make use of it. New ideas for events and activities are always welcomed. You can see details on our website tolmencentre.co.uk or call in when we are open, or phone on 01326 341353.
We have a great opportunity to keep the our pre-school running for the next 20 years. The school is currently featured on the national crowdfunding scheme run by 1010 Solar Schools. This helps to raise the funds to install Solar PV systems for schools throughout the UK. Our installation would generate an income for the next 20 years – and help to maintain the long term sustainability of the pre-school, which is always struggling to raise funds.
Any contributions, whatever size, will effectively be turned into a 20 year income stream for the pre-school and help to maintain this important centre of community life in Constantine. You can contribute as little as £5, just click here, or you can purchase vouchers at the Farmers Market, or from any member of the pre-school team.
This year sees seven participating artists in or around Constantine. Lin Williams and Kathy Atkins in Well Lane, George Willoughby in Higher Brill, Mollie Silver and Cassie Rafferty in Bowling Green and Peta White and Heather Bacon in the Tolmen Centre. All these artists work in various mediums from pastels, oil, acrylic. watercolour, mixed media and printmaking etc. …more

The duo have a special ability to combine a truly diverse array of talents into a hugely entertaining show. Sliding easily from evocative Irish ballad to a mandolin and guitar version of Handel’s arrival of the Queen of Sheba interspersed with their own notorious comic songs.

Virtuoso mandolin, elegant vocals, guitar and fiddle wizardry, and a stage show that ranges from witty to hilarious. Expect anything from a Vivaldi concerto, trad folk, jazz standards, Celtic, ragtime, blues, a deadly accurate tribute to Jake Thackray and, of course, that song about the parrot!
Simon Mayor: “Britain’s leading hot-fingered mandolin virtuoso” is also a fine fiddle player, guitarist, composer and wit. He has presented numerous programmes for the BBC, including his own acclaimed series for Radio 2, ‘Marooned with a Mandolin’. His CD ‘Music from a Small Island’ featured several of his own compositions which were inspired by Ilkley and the Dales. “A pedigree musician” – BBC World Service, Recording of the Week
