Workshop: Slapstick Saturday + Laurel and Hardy: Rebellious Clowns (PG*)

Family Film Club

Big Business

We get silly with a special workshop on slapstick before a screening of three classic Laurel and Hardy films with live musical accompaniment from Wendy Hiscocks.

From 10am

Come and play in this slapstick workshop inspired by Laurel and Hardy. It’s free, just drop in. This workshop is open to all children and their families. Children should be accompanied by an adult.

Laurel and Hardy: Rebellious Clowns (PG*) + live piano accompaniment by Wendy Hiscocks

One of the ultimate comic duos, we’re playing three of the silent films that best showcase Laurel and Hardy’s flair for on screen slapstick and hilarity: Leave ‘em Laughing, Big Business and You’re Darn Tootin’.

Total running time: 60 mins

Leave 'Em Laughing
US 1928 Dir Clyde Brukman 21 min

You're Darn Tootin'
US 1928 Dir Edgar Kennedy 20 min

Big Business
US 1929 Dirs James W Horne and Leo McCarey 19 min

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult.

If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count
