What’s On in May at The Falkners Arms

The Falkners Arms

Counting down to our BIG charity event of the year, our FAMILY FUN DAY taking place on Sunday 3rd May which promises to be a cracking day for all the family.

This year’s attractions include traditional side stalls, Shetland pony rides, giant inflatables, a chance to handle birds of prey and pit your skills with Beat The Goalie, Target Football and Nearest The Pin, BBQ – see the poster for more details.

There’ll be live music throughout the afternoon from our old friend Ric Martin and from one of our very favourite Saturday Night Live bands, Groove Republic, and Groove Republic will be back in the evening cracking out the best soul and funk anthems, so it will be a packed dance floor…if we can still walk by then, that is!

During the day we’ll be holding a grand auction with some brilliant lots on offer including a hot air balloon experience for two, off-roading driving experience, hotel breaks, drive a top-of-the range BMW for the weekend, golf packages, mountain bike, and also a raffle with some belting prizes too.

We’re very proud to have raised over SIXTY THOUSAND POUNDS for national and local charities and good causes since we started our Fun Days back in 2010. This year we’re continuing our most ambitious project ever, to raise £27,000 over the next couple of years to enable a local school for children with special needs to have its very own specially-equipped Sunshine Coach. The coach will have wheelchair access and will enable the school to plan educational and recreational trips and explore places its pupils may otherwise not get the opportunity to visit, so please come along and help us towards this fantastic cause.

Full timetable for the day is:
12 noon                         Fun Day opens

Entry is free, and there’s free parking in the Rugus office car park, just 200 yards from the event. Hope to see you there for what promises to be a great day out for all the family.

If that’s not enough there’s even more entertainment from the very best bands that we can find coming your way this month…

On the football front we have the climax to the Premier League season, the FA Cup Final, and the football league play-offs all coming to a screen near you.

See all the televised fixtures.

And finally, our new menu has been receiving rave reviews since it was launched a couple of weeks ago, and we’re now also serving fantastic home-cooked food on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings.

There’s a special introductory offer for the month of May…a 10% discount from the Casual Dining menu for parties of 4 or more.  No excuses now :-)

We look forward to seeing you soon.
