Cinema Double Bill

Stephen Lincoln

Hello all, our next presentation, on SUNDAY 18 FEBRUARY 2018, will be a Double Bill with a meal served in the interval.

The schedule will be:

  • 5.30pm, Eric Sykes in The Plank (Doors open 5.00pm)
  • 6.30pm a meal will be served
  • 7.30pm, Dunkirk (Doors re-open at 7.15pm)

The Plank

Classic short British comedy, full of stars, about two workmen delivering planks to a building site. This is done with music and a sort of 'wordless dialogue' which consists of a few mumbled sounds to convey the appropriate emotion. Cert U.


In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated. Cert 12A.

The Licenced Bar will be open throughout.

Please let us know in good time if you would like to join us for the meal so we can ensure an adequate quantity. A vegetarian option will be available. The menu is yet to be determined but is likely to be a "winter warmer".

We look forward to seeing you there.

You can see clearly the medieval fish ponds between the manor and the railway (the series of large depressions in the grassy area at the top centre of the picture).
