This year, Imperial War Museums (IWM) and the Powerstock team responsible for A Dorset Parish Remembers, a member of the First World War Centenary Partnership, are working together to show the UNESCO listed film The Battle of the Somme, to audiences across the world. Shot and screened in 1916, it was the first feature length documentary about war and changed the way both cinema and film was perceived by the public. In the year of its release around 20 million people, almost half the population of Britain at the time, watched The Battle of the Somme, many hoping to see the image of a loved-one or friend captured on film. One hundred years later, this unique film from IWM's collection is being shown to commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of the Somme.

Welcome to Powerstock Hut - the Village Hall serving the communities of Powerstock, Nettlecombe, West Milton and North and South Poorton.
When the original building was purchased, just after the First World War, it had been used as Army accommodation and was christened “The Hut” - and it retains that affectionate nickname almost a hundred years on.
Over the years it has benefited from a series of transformations that have resulted in its current status as a superb venue for all occasions, with state of the art catering facilities and a full bar licence.
Powerstock Hut is adjacent to the grounds of Powerstock Primary School, car parking in the playground is available out of school hours.
