Welcome to the Batcombe Parish Council Website
The Parish Council's website is continually being developed and will gradually provide more information about the parish of Batcombe, local organisations, news and events - as well as those documents the Parish Council is required to publish.
BATCOMBE is a parish in the east of Somerset between Frome and Shepton Mallet, which consists of the villages of Batcombe and Westcombe together with a number of outlying hamlets and farmsteads. At the centre of the parish lies St Mary's Church with its magnificent 16th century tower, the Three Horseshoes pub, and a community centre consisting of the award-winning Jubilee Hall and the Old School Rooms. (To learn more about the Jubilee Hall and Old School Rooms click on the link to the Village Hall Trust website.)

Events in BATCOMBE
Batcombe Film Society - "Styx"
Friday February 21st 2020
Time: 7.15pm for 7.45pm
Place: The Jubilee Hall, Batcombe
Description: The second of the two films in February is Styx (2018/95 mins/12A) - Rike is a successful emergency doctor in Cologne but has a longheld dream to sail her yacht solo from Gibraltar to Ascension Island in the Atlantic. Her trip takes a very different course though, after a storm and an encounter with a stricken boat loaded with refugees. She tries her best to help but as time goes by the situation worsens and Rike has to face impossible moral decisions. Very tense, convincing and thought-provoking, with little dialogue – all the action is on the screen. (English and German with subtitles.) The programme for the Film Society's 2019/20 season can be found on the Clubs and Societies page.
