Tansley Film will be showing The Impossible (12A) in Tansley Village Hall on Tuesday, February 4.

Starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts, The Impossible is a harrowing story of perseverance and the search for safety amidst the destruction of the Asian Tsunami on Boxing Day in 2004.

The film is set in Thailand where the couple and their three sons are on holiday. Their world is turned upside down as the tsunami unleashes, whilst they sit by the pool.

It is based on the true life story of a Spanish family and is directed by Juan Antonio Bayona.

Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian describes the actual tsunami sequence as “ a masterpiece of film-making.” He also believes this to be Ewan McGregor’s “finest hour.”

The story is familiar, but despite this, it has real emotional power and it is an intelligent film.

It will also be an opportunity to reflect and once again, thank all in Tansley who supported Tibshelf School’s charity projects in Sri Lanka following the Asian Tsunami.

Screening of the film starts at 7.30pm in Tansley Village Hall.

Refreshments are available from 7pm. No membership is required. Tickets cost £4.

n Longer days and lighter nights will soon arrive and the natural world will begin to wake up.

You can celebrate the lengthening days with Derbyshire Wildlife Trust at its lantern workshop on Saturday, February 1.

The workshop takes place at the Whistlestop Centre in Matlock Bath. Use the grounds around the centre as inspiration for your design then create a nature-themed willow and tissue lantern.

The workshop is suitable for adults, children and young people – please note that younger children will need help from an adult.

There are two sessions to choose from – 10am-12pm and 1.30pm-3.30pm. Please book in advance as places are limited. There is a charge of £8 per lantern. To book and find out more contact Derbyshire Wildlife Trust on 01773 881188 or visit www.derbyshirewildlifetrust.org.uk
