Literary Film Programme with The Wordsworth Trust
17 November 2012 / Events / Food / Arts / Film
Our next programme of films will feature films that celebrate the 18th Century English Romantic Poets. Presented in conjunction with The Wordsworth Trust.
Join us once a month for four film screenings, December through to March, on Sunday evenings from 5pm. Tickets include supper and discussion.
Thorney How has expanded upon its usual Saturday night screenings and created a brand new custom film programme. Together with The Wordsworth Trust, we have selected the very best of films to celebrate the 18th Century English Romantic Poets. The programme will be shown over the course of a couple of months and will be accompanied by light discussion about the literary figures by a member of the team at The Wordworth Trust.
We invite you to watch the following films (film only ticket price £5.00) whilst sat by our wood burning stove and what could be better than a serving of hot supper stew and chunky slice of bread for an extra £6.50 or perhaps a drink from the bar….
Films will be starting from 5pm, the event finishing at around 8.30pm.
