Dai C Thomas,
Nigel Philip Davies and Nick Ward are bringing their successful
Songwriter Syndicate evening to Llangadog Community Centre
after a very triumphant night in Bethlehem last year.
They will be playing
a collection of their own songs with some stories, jokes
and audience participation (if you're brave). There will
be a bar on the night.
As a local lad Dai says this show is close
to his heart and he is so happy to be able to bring
this evening to Llangadog.
Doors are 7pm with the first act on at
7.30pm. Tickets are £5 on the night

Events at Bethlehem Hall
If anyone has any ideas that they would like to put forward for events in the hall, please contact Nia (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sue (email@example.com)
Friday December 8th is the next Old School Supper Evening. At the moment this is sold out but we do have a waiting list if you would like to be added to that in the event of cancellations. We had our first one of these on 10th November and the food and the evening overall has had very positive feedback. We shall be doing them throughout the winter on the second Friday of each month.
Monday 11th December is monthly quiz evening.
Wednesday 13th December from 6 - 8.30pm will be the Bethlehem Christmas Fair. Local crafts people will have stalls and there will also be a stall full of wonderful locally produced preserves, chutneys, cakes, and other produce such as free range eggs, homemade country wine, and vegetables, with the proceeds from sales going to the Hall fund . There will mulled wine and food on offer.
The Bethlehem Children's Christmas Party will be held at the hall on Saturday 16th December at 5pm. Food, fun, games and a visit from Santa are included!
Christmas is coming and, as usual, we are opening the Hall from the 4th December through to 19th December (not Sundays) so that people can come and get their cards stamped with the special Bethlehem stamp. We will also be selling Bethlehem bags as well as Bethlehem Christmas cards. We shall open the book swap room and there will be coffee, tea, mince pies/snacks for sale (free supplies of these for volunteers!).
In order to do this we need volunteers to come and help out, so if you can spare 3 hours (between 10.00 a.m. until 1.00 p.m or from 1.00 p.m. until 4 pm) on any day from Monday 4th December until Tuesday 19th December inclusive, then please contact us so we can put you on our rota.
Plans are underway for carol singing. More on this later.

Calling all cooks/wine makers and those of you who have produce to share! Bethlehem needs your produce - mae angen eich cynnyrch!
The Bethlehem Christmas Fair will be held on Wednesday December 13th, 6-8.30pm, more information next month, but this is an advanced begging notice. This year we plan on having a stall full of wonderful, locally made, preserves, chutneys, cakes, and other produce such as free range eggs and vegetables, with the proceeds from sales going to the Hall fund.
So, if anyone can spare a jar or two of home made jam or chutney, we would be very grateful. No need to decorate with fancy labels and pretty tops, we will do all of that, and bring everything together under the label of Cynnyrch Cymunedol Bethlehem - Bethlehem Community Produce. We can accept donations in the run-up to the fair when the Hall will be open for Christmas stamping (again, more details next month) but in the meantime, just to get things started, we have Blackcurrant Jam, three types of chutney, and a pledge of home made wines.
Phone Nia on 01550 777254 for more information or email us, or make contact through the Facebook page.
Diolch yn fawr/Thank you!
Bethlehem Hall Old School Supper Evenings
For November, (the 10th), we will be serving a choice of mains and puddings - a wonderfully flavoursome Pork and Sweet Red Pepper Goulash with aromatic paprikas and fresh herbs, a hearty Vegetable, Sweet Pepper and Butterbean Goulash with the same paprikas and herbs, and a succulent Chicken, Red Onion and Cider bake. Puddings will be a citrus Cheesecake on ginger crust, with fresh berries, Chantilly cream, and a ginger crisp, and good old fashioned Bakewell Tart with cream.
We promise.... all the food is made by us, nothing bought in, nothing processed, all fresh, nothing too cheffy with everything piled up in a stack and disguised with edible flowers! Just proper "Old School", tasty food. The cost is £10 per person.
We are already full for November but are happy to take reserve bookings in case of cancellations, as well as take advanced bookings for December 8th, which will feature a very festive theme.
Food will be served at 7.30pm, so arrive from 7.00pm onwards. The bar will be open, serving wines to compliment the food, as well as a selection of other wines, beers, lager, cider and soft drinks.
We will be contacting those who have already booked for November a few days beforehand to ask for your food choices.
If anyone wants to know more about the suppers, or if you'd like to reserve a place, phone Nia on 01550 777254, or contact Nia or Sue through the Facebook page or through email.
The Old School Supper Evening has proved to be a very popular event and, as a result we are now sold out for November and December.
If you would like to come along then let us know and we will put your name on the reserve list in case places become free due to cancellations.
We shan't be taking bookings for January until the end of November.
