Barlaston Community Group chose to run a village Film Night to create a local event which assisted in achieving part of its aim to 'To foster community spirit and encourage neighbourliness within the village of Barlaston'. The Barlaston Film Night is held in Barlaston Village Hall, 1 Longton Road, Barlaston, ST12 9AA and is a community event for everyone. Although the event has not been designed as profit making, any money made from the Film nights will be invested back into the village.

Ticket to Paradise - Saturday 22nd July 2023

Tickets available soon

Mrs Harris Goes to Paris - Saturday 25th March 2023

It was brilliant to get a full house for Mrs Harris Goes to Paris!  We got lost in a world of Haute Couture & a warm hearted story of chasing dreams, friendship & love - a perfect pick-me-up after a damp & chilly couple of weeks‼️ Thanks to our wonderful audience who squeezed in together very sociably & formed an excellent chain-gang to put the chairs away at the end - how very Barlaston

Downton Abbey, A New Era - Saturday 17th September 2022

Downton Abbey, A New Era was WONDERFUL!  It had all the right ingredients to keep us distracted, amused and moved.  For a couple of hours we could forget about the Queen’s passing, the war in Ukraine and the economic crisis and we had a really lovely evening. Thanks to everyone for coming and of course to our super team of helpers!  

The Last Bus - Saturday 14th May 2022

The Last Bus was a poignant film superbly acted by Timothy Spall & although rather different from our normal showings, it was nevertheless enjoyed by all. HUGE THANKS to those that gave up the delights of Eurovision & the football to join us & the backstage crew of helpers (incl the ‘chair-gang’ which makes clearing away soooo much quicker) - Barlaston’s COMMUNITY SPIRIT in action

Dream Horse - Saturday 12th March 2022

We were thrilled with the turnout for Film Night and Dream Horse got a fantastic reception.  We cheered on Dream Alliance and gave a pretty good rendition of Delilah when he won his final race!  The film is based on a true story and was funny and moving in equal measure with a grand finale ending, leaving everyone feeling uplifted – just what we like!

Military Wives - Saturday 7th August 2021

Military Wives was the perfect re-introduction to Film Night - a reduced audience but a great film, lovely atmosphere & lots of room to spread out & feel safe. Thanks to everyone for coming & our loyal crew of helpers

Farmageddon - Friday 21st February 2020

We had a lovely afternoon at Barlaston Film Matinee watching the new Shaun the Sheep movie 'Farmageddon'. Everyone helped put the chairs away at the end including the kids, how helpful you all were!

Downton Abbey - Saturday 8th February 2020

Yesterday - Saturday 17th November 2019

Thank you to everyone who attended tonight's film showing of 'Yesterday', a feel good movie packed with famous songs and plenty of laughter. As always we had a great time. And thanks to everyone who helped, including the audience who packed their chairs away in record time!

Red Joan - Saturday 5th October 2019

Thank you to our wonderful audience for such a fun evening! Red Joan was an intriguing story based on real life events (brilliantly acted by Judy Dench) but it seems that the success of the night no longer depends on the film - everyone chats to each other & newcomers are made to feel very welcome!!

Huge thanks for supporting the event & for the audience participation with chairs at the end - Barlaston Film Night Fans are the Best

Dumbo - Thursday 22nd August 2019

We had a lovely time this afternoon at the kids Film Matinee watching Dumbo! A massive THANK YOU to the children who were all so polite & the older ones helped tidy up & put the chairs away - Barlaston kids are GREAT.

The Candy Cart was supplied by Jaynies Crafts & Goodies - find her on Facebook if you want to know more

Fishermans Friends - Saturday 10th August 2019


What a fantastic turnout for Fisherman's Friends! There was a party atmosphere in the hall & like all the best parties, it ended with a sing-song... a foot-stamping version of 'What shall we do with a Drunken Sailor', the line 'shave his bottom with a rusty razor' being sung with particular gusto.

Huge thanks to the gang below deck - Sam, Sandie & Irene & of course our wonderful audience for helping at the end with the washing up, stacking chairs & sweeping floors.

A Star is Born - Saturday 1st June 2019 

Thanks to everyone who chose Film over Football last night. It was an emotional evening with brilliant acting & powerful musical numbers. Then in true Barlaston style people pitched in to help with putting chairs away & clearing the hall - Thank You & we look forward to seeing you all again on the 10th August for Fishermen's Friends!

Mary Poppins Returns - Friday 26th April 2019

Our first matinee! We spent a lovely afternoon eating ice creams & watching Mary Poppins Returns. Thanks to everyone who came & for being such a helpful audience, stacking & putting away chairs & even offering to sweep the hall floor!

Bohemian Rhapsody - Saturday 6th April 2019

A great big Thank You to Saturday's Film Night audience who had waited so patiently (5 months?!) for us to get Bohemian Rhapsody. 
The raffle was as popular as ever with some super prizes including freshly baked cakes made by BLISS cakes and some Wedgwood pieces donated by Renee.
Thank you for supporting Film Night & we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Mission Impossible: Fallout - Saturday 2nd February 2019

Mission Impossible Fallout certainly provided a tough test for our new film equipment - the action scenes were vivid & dramatic, with gasps & OMGs from the audience as we were visually bombarded with bloody fight scenes, car & motorbike chases & aerial extravaganzas with a twisting plot line, it was exhausting! (Spoiler alert, the baddies lose & Tom Cruise saves the world.)

The new projector & screen, funded by the National Lottery, was a great success & we are already looking forward to our next film.
