Framed Film Club - Andy Stanton Presents: Bedknobs and Broomsticks (PG) + Intro from Andy Stanton

10am workshop/ 11am film

29 April 2017
Cinema 2
Andy Stanton (author of the fantastic Mr Gum series) is taking over Framed Film Club and filling our screens with his most cherished children’s cinema classics.

Based on the fantastical story by Mary Norton, this is the story of three children - Charlie, Carrie and Paul - who are evacuated during the war to stay with Miss Eglantine Price, an apprentice witch. When Miss Price receives a letter from her headmaster in London, she and the children travel - by way of an enchanted bed - to the capital to meet him and the adventure begins.

A mixture of live action and animation, songs and laughs - this classic slice of children's cinema is the ideal way to spend a Saturday morning and includes one of the best football matches ever committed to celluloid.

UK/US 1973 Dir Robert Stevenson 117 min
