Hypnotherapy-w500-h500Gary Johannas and Caroline Prout engaged members last night with a fascinating insight into how our brains work: front brain and primitive brain (dealing with phobias, anxiety, depression and anger).  It seems we have a bucket where these things go so we can use our sleep to process them.  However, when it gets too full, it all goes wrong!  We discovered that what we need to do is to think positive, active positive and interact socially positively.  We can start by identifying at least one good thing each day.

Last chance to get your tickets for the Mikron Theatre – ‘Raising Agents’

Poster for Raising Agents-w500-h500

Friday 22nd May at 7.30pm. Congregational Hall, Bowden Lane, Market Harborough, LE16 7JD – buy your ticket now!

We are delighted to announce that the Mikron Touring Theatre will be in Market Harborough in May with their specially written play to celebrate 100 years’ of WI.

Bunnington WI is a bit down-at-heel. Dwindling membership means they can barely afford the hall, let alone a decent speaker. So when a PR guru becomes a member, the women are glad of new blood. Initially.

The milk of WI kindness begins to sour when she re-brands them the Bunnington Bunnies. They’re hopping. With stakes higher than a five tiered cake stand, a battle ensues for the very soul of Bunnington, perhaps the WI itself!

On the threshold of one century into the next, this tale of hobbyists and lobbyists asks how much we should know our past or how much we should let go of it.

Above all else, like the WI itself, Raising Agents is a story of friendship.


Friday 22nd May at 7.30pm. Congregational Hall, Bowden Lane, Market Harborough, LE16 7JD . Full £12, £10 conc. For tickets please email  Tea & Coffee/BYOB
