If you like, you can dress up in circus-themed outfits, other cheerful costumes or just come as you are – all are welcome.

Saturday 23rd March 2019    "BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY"   Cert 12A

A foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and lead singer Freddie Mercury who defied stereotypes to become one of the most beloved entertainers of their time. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. This award winning film is a must-see, with great performances all round.
