Special award for the Winding House

Blackwood Miners’ Institute has a huge selection of hilarious acts and breath taking shows on offer throughout September, from the famous ‘Stute Comedy Nights to Mynyddislwyn Male Voice Choir –there really is something for everyone!

The ‘Stute Comedy Nights are set to return on Friday 8th September, with top class comedians putting on a hilarious show for the audience to enjoy. Compere for the evening will be Blackwood Miners’ Institute regular, James Cook. Kicking off the evening will be Otiz Cannelloni, who combines the illusion of magic and the wit of stand up to produce a fantastic comic creation! Gerry K is also on the bill, bringing truly original insights into life in rural England.

Poggle, a captivating and imaginative show for young children, comes to Blackwood Miners’ Institute on Saturday 16th September. This warm-hearted and funny sensory dance theatre show follows Vince who wants to go into the forest but is too scared to go all on his own – until he meets Poggle who takes him on an adventure! Suitable for children age 6 months to 4 years.

Not About Heroes depicts the story of the friendship between World War I poets Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, which was over shadowed by an appalling war. This is a potent exploration of courage and humanity to be shown at Blackwood Miners’ Institute on Wednesday 20th September.

Join Mynyddislwyn Male Voice Choir on Thursday 21st September at 7pm for a wonderful evening of music and entertainment, as they perform in their 47th annual concert! The choir will be joined by special guests Mezzo Soprano, Joanne Thomas and Caerphilly Young Musician of the Year, violinist Nick Francis.
