Register your interest in international films

If like many of us you love foreign language films, whether scandi-nour, dramas or comedy we would like to hear from you.  There are so many incredible foreign language films this year that we would like to be able to offer some additional screenings in addition to our normal calendar schedule.  Just a couple that have peaked our interest are:

PETITE MAMAN - Céline Sciamma continues to prove herself as one of the most accomplished and unpredictable contemporary French filmmakers with her follow up to PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE, the uniquely emotional, PETITE MAMAN. Following the death of her beloved grandmother, 8-year-old Nelly accompanies her parents to her mother's childhood home to begin the difficult process of cleaning out its contents. As Nelly explores the house and nearby woods, she is immediately drawn to a neighbor her own age building a treehouse. What follows is a tender tale of childhood grief, memory and connection.   Trailer: https://youtu.be/mdORAHCydyY

There, he meets Musa, a hash smuggler, who is injured after a car accident.

BOUNCERS - LIVE THEATRE TOUR

Black Box Theatre Company return to the Village Hall on Friday 8th July 2022 with their tour of John Godbers hillarious play 'Bouncers'.

Set in 1984, John Godber’s classic comic drama, Bouncers, tells the story of a typical northern nightclub and the colourful characters that inhabit its dancefloor.  It’s Friday night and the weekend’s here… so, put on your dancing shoes… it’s going to be a night to remember!  Maureen and the girls are having their hair done. Barry and the lads are ‘down the pub’ getting a few drinks in. And Ralph, Les, Judd and Lucky Eric are manning the doors at the town’s hottest nightspot… Mr Cinders.
