Literary Film Programme with The Wordsworth Trust

Arts Events Film Food

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.

To book a ticket (and supper) please click on the following link: Wordsworth Trust - “Winter Film Screenings with Thorney How”:https://www.wordsworth.org.uk/search-results/thorney+how

The films will be screened on our big 3.5m screen at Throney How from 5pm on the following dates:
