Film Classics - The Lady Vanishes

Film Classics - The Lady Vanishes

Fri, 23 Nov 2018 19:30

Indoor showing of the classic 1938 Hitchcock film. The Green Place will be serving food from 5.30pm - 7pm. The film will start at 7.30pm.

On a train headed for England a group of travellers is delayed by an avalanche. Holed up in a hotel in a fictional European country, young Iris (Margaret Lockwood) befriends elderly Miss Froy (Dame May Whitty). When the train resumes, Iris suffers a bout of unconsciousness and wakes to find the old woman has disappeared. The other passengers ominously deny Miss Froy ever existed, so Iris begins to investigate with another traveller (Michael Redgrave) and, as the pair sleuth, romantic sparks fly.

Cert: A Film Only: £6.50

We are serving "Fish & Chips" as an option with this film. Choose from vegetarian (halloumi, chips & mushy peas) or vegan (vegan cheese, chips & mushy peas). Price is £7.50. You will be able to choose when booking.

Father Christmas - Sileby Lights

Father Christmas - Sileby Lights

Fri, 30 Nov 2018 17:00

Join us before and after the Sileby Lights switch-on for a festive treat for all the family with marshmallow toasting, mulled wine, stollen, fire pits and of course a chance to visit Father Christmas in the twinkling yurt. Hot dogs and burgers available.

This year we are operating a booking system to see Father Christmas in order to minimise the time spent queueing.

You can book for a 20 minute time slot where you will be invited in to the festively decorated yurt to see Father Christmas as part of a small group of up to 10 children. He will call out your child's name when it is his/her turn to meet him. Up to 2 adults can accompany your child(ren) free of charge. Extra adults will be admitted for £2, space permitting.

The cost per child is £5 which includes 20 minutes in the yurt, a chat with Father Christmas and a gift. Siblings aged 2 or under who don't want to meet Father Christmas can accompany you as long as they sit on your lap due to space limitations.

Pushchairs/buggies/prams must be left outside.

Book now to ensure your time slot and reduce waiting times. You can of course turn up without booking and pay on the night, but you will then need to wait until there is a space, or at the end of the bookable time slots (about 8pm) and join the queue, but we cannot guarantee a visit if there are large numbers.
