Tupton Buffet Club


Formerly known as Tupton Film Club

Our Aim: To put on an evening’s entertainment, approximately once a month, for the people of Tupton and surrounding area. This will be a social event centered on a buffet and showing a free film.

Come and Join Us!


The Tupton Buffet Club meets at St. John's Church, Tupton.

Tupton Buffet Club came out of Tupton Film Club. Due to the licensing of films we cannot advertise (even by printing a list of films!) or charge for showing a film without paying an individual license which is expensive. So we have decided to provide by subscription a buffet and show a film for free.

The films have been chosen by members of the Buffet Club and you will be able to see a list of them and the dates they will be shown on the night. If you would like to know the films you can phone the Chairman, Colin Morton on the number at the foot of this page.
