Promoter Voice: Heightington Village Hall

Heightington is a very rural and dispersed settlement. The village hall is the only real meeting point in the village apart from the church. Shindig has become a very important part of the village hall’s programme of events and has enabled the committee to put on a whole variety of shows and performances, the likes of which they wouldn’t be able to afford if not for the subsidy that comes with Shindig.

Shindig has also enabled the committee to apply for grant funding for new chairs, staging and a small extension.

In this short video the local Promoters talk about the Shindig scheme and what it has brought to their community.
