Vintage Night at The King's Head
After a long lay-of because of the pandemic, Stutton Presents rose again with a musical event at the pub featuring songs from 'the vintage years'.
Catch an edited version of the evening here.
And if you fancy getting involved in future events, we'd be delighted to hear from you.
Stutton - the movie
Stutton the Movie is a feature length film which premiered on 25 January 2020 with three sell-out showings at the Community Hall. Made entirely on an iPhone 7 - with the aid of a bicycle, a ladder and not much more - the film presents 'this beautiful place we call home' and the people who live here.

John Nittles (a famous actor) is murdered down at the reservoir and several TV detectives (who just happen to be staying in Stutton at the time) try to work out who dunnit.
Miss Meeple, Hercule Pierrot, Lord Peter Wimsey, Sergent Dockson - each wants to solve the case and beat their rivals to the next Christmas Special.
One of them just wants a song.
Although the sad story of adventuress Margaret Catchpole isn’t the first plot you might think of for a pantomime, the cast and crew of this production celebrated the feisty woman that Margaret must have been.
50 people from the village of Stutton performed this unusual version of the well known melodrama Margaret Catchpole, this time presented as a pantomime with a decidedly hopeful ending.
The cast ranged in age from 9 to over 80. Anyone who wanted to get involved had a role - on stage or off. The resulting performance was certainly lively; but most of all the cast had an absolute ball along the way.
Smugglers, country villagers and Londoners mingled with the well-known cast of characters, Meg, John Barry, Will Laud - and of course, Dobbin the pantomime horse who gallops - somewhat reluctantly - from Ipswich to London.
Written by Stutton resident Louise Lock, with original songs by Ian Heywood who lives five doors down. Lighting by Andy Woollard who lives opposite the village hall. Set design and painting by local artists Gay Strutt and David Hewlett and the leading lady was all the way from Chicago - but has made this community her home. This is a real village affair.
