MoJO plays modern and traditional big band music with a variety of other styles. This 18- piece Midcoast-based band knows how to throw a party, so attendees can relax, sing out or dance the away. The featured film is rated PG and runs an hour and 39 minutes.

“The Englishman Who Went up a Hill but Came down a Mountain” is a 1995 British film with a story by Ifor David Monger and Ivor Monger, written and directed by Christopher Monger and starring Hugh Grant. It is based on a story Christopher heard from his grandfather about the real village of Taff’s Well (Ffynnon Taf in Welsh); Rhondda Cynon Taff, Wales; and its neighboring Garth Hill.

The film revolves around two English cartographers, the pompous Garrad and his junior, Anson. They visit the small South Wales village of Ffynnon Garw, to measure what is claimed to be the “first mountain inside of Wales.” It is 1917, and the war in Europe continues. The villagers are very proud of their “mountain” and are understandably disappointed and furious to find that it is in fact a “hill.” Not to be outwitted by a rule (and the Englishmen who enforce it), the villagers set out to make their hill into a mountain … but to do so, they must keep the English from leaving before the job is done.
