Tintinhull Drama Group


Tel: 01935 825744

Tintinhull has an active Drama group that has been in existence for many years utilising the Village Hall. In the previous building the company built the stage to enhance productions that the group put on. For many years we have staged a traditional Pantomime as well as more conventional productions . These have included Drama Supper evenings encompassing a couple of one or two act plays.
The group have also been involved in seasonal concerts or festivals such as Christmas and the Royal Jubilee celebrations.
We have a fully equipped stage with lighting and sound, and an enthusiastic membership that covers both on stage and back stage talents.

Gardening Club

Tintinhull Garden Club, founded in 2012, has gone from strength to strength and has now over sixty members, including a small number from outside the village. New members are always welcome. We are affiliated to the Somerset Federation of Gardening Clubs and are a corporate member of The Gardens Group Gold Club, which offers its members a wide variety of discounts, benefits and support.

The Club has a year-round programme of visits, speakers and events, which normally take place on the third Friday of the month. The Summer events run from May until September, with afternoon visits arranged to larger gardens of interest in our area, such as those opening under the NGS scheme, the National Trust and similar. A private tour is often provided which introduces the history of the property to us, together with the development of the garden and its planting. So far a very wide variety of gardens have been visited, each with their own characteristics & plants of special interest. Afternoon tea is usually provided. Travel time is kept to under an hour, with those members without transport offered lifts by other members. Summer garden visits have always been well-attended.

From October to March, the monthly meetings are usually held in the evening in the Village Hall, with outside speakers invited to talk on topics, covering the whole spectrum of gardening interest. The popular November meeting is the Garden Club’s ‘Social and Quiz Evening’ and is a good sociable end to the Club’s year of activities. The AGM is held in April.

3. The number in each family group will need to be notified at the time of booking.

4. The Hall will need to be sanitized before visitors arrive.

6.  Masks should be worn at all times anywhere in the building except by those who are exempt.

St Margarets Church

Although there was a church in Tintinhull in the early 12th Century the current Church of Saint Margaret of Antioch was built in the 13th Century. It was connected very closely with the nearby Montacute Priory. St Margaret, Virgin and Martyr, was a very popular saint in the middle ages and there are a number of churches in England dedicated to her. Nothing is known of her, although there are legendary stories about her being swallowed by a dragon who, being irritated by the cross she carried, allowed her to escape alive. She is usually depicted with a dragon in icons and art. St Margaret is celebrated on July 20th.

There are weekly services including monthly all-age worship. The church is heavily involved in the local community. There is a church school in the parish, and the church runs a monthly after school club called Fun Church.
