The village hall committee hosted an afternoon tea to mark the occasion of the King’s Coronation. Timing couldn’t have been better as we finally also managed to erect our wonderful village mosaic in time for the celebrations. We were also treated to a wildflower walk on the Bank Holiday Monday by village resident Paul who shared his knowledge generously. The walk was well attended and it was lovely to see the community spirit in the chat afterwards over tea and cake.
Review: Tamar and Jo’s Sync or Swim at @Ebberston Village Hall @RuralArts
Tamar & Jo, synchronised-swimmer athletes wowed Ebberston in April with their agility and finesse as they transported us to our favourite northern seaside town! What a great evening of silly, seaside-themed entertainment.
Some quotes from audience
“What a brilliant evening of entertainment.”
“From the opening George Michael and Elton John “cover” to the climatic sea side sketch a really well crafted programme. The timeless sea side bingo and the prize raffle rounded off a really enjoyable evening. Many thanks to the village hall committee for booking the artists, very much appreciated.”
“They were brilliant , so so funny”
“One of the funniest evenings”
“Fantastic night, Sides ached from laughing”
“Zany and off the wall. Really good evening. Nice to see something a little different”

Wildflower meadows are being planted to mark King Charles III’s Coronation but do you know about the wild flowers right on our doorstep?

Sync or Swim @Ebberston Village Hall with @RuralArts
Our next Rural Arts event on 27 April at the village hall will be with Tamar & Jo who will bring their unique brand of dance-comedy to Ebberston with their seaside-meets-synchronised-swimming themed duet Sync or Swim.
Suitable for all ages, the show is brought to us via Rural Arts rural touring scheme. After some seaside bingo (silly prizes!) in the first half, we will follow two synchronised swimmers as they spend a bizarre day at the seaside in a tightly choreographed routine.
The piece started life as part of the company’s Doorstep Dances project, which took over 600 5-minute performances to doorsteps, streets and public spaces across Hull during the pandemic.
Tickets are £10. You can book your tickets on the door at the village breakfast (Saturday 25 March), or online here https://www.ruralarts.org/…/sync-or-swim-ebberston…/
We will run our pop-up bar again on the evening (from 6.45pm) and all profits from the evening will go to Ebberston Village Hall (Reg. Charity 523346).
