Lingen, a place of sparkling water, is a Herefordshire village in the wooded hills of the Marches on the border between England and Wales. Situated in the north-west corner of the county it lies just over five miles from the Welsh border. The parish includes the hamlets of Birtley, Limebrook and Willey. 

Lingen village offers not only a Chapel, Church, Public House and Village Hall, but also gives visitors the opportunity to sample stunning countryside walks with truly splendid views.

Lingen Flix 16th March 7.30pm with ‘The Party’ British Comedy/Drama.  Starring: Kristin Scott Thomas, Emily Mortimer, Timothy Spall & Cillian Murphy  To celebrate her long-awaited prestigious post as a Shadow Minister for Health and, hopefully, the stepping stone to party leadership, the newly-appointed British opposition politician, Janet, is throwing a party for friends at her London flat. Of course, in this select and intimate soirée, apart from Bill--Janet's self-denying academic husband--a motley crew of elite hand-picked guests have been invited: There's April, the sourly cynical American best friend; her unlikely German husband, Gottfried; there's also Jinny and Martha; and finally, Tom, the smooth banker in the impeccable suit. But inevitably, before dinner is served, the upbeat ambience will shatter to pieces, as festering secrets will start surfacing in this perfect domestic war-zone. Undoubtedly, after this night, things will never be the same again. 

A comedy of tragic proportions.  An absolute blast.  Deliciously wicked fun.  A£5/C£3.50
