Book Now Chimes at Midnight

Saturday 29 February at 6:30 pm

*Only 30 tickets available*

Following the success of our Dickens’ Film & Food nights, we present a season of Shakespeare on film. We’ve selected our films using a recent Guardian ranking of  ‘Best Shakespeare Films’ – and a themed meal will be part of your ticket.

Chimes at Midnight  1966 Orson Welles
“Orson Welles’s lifelong obsession with Shakespeare was best realised in his monumental version of the Henry IV plays. Centre-stage, naturally, is Welles’s own Falstaff, far more ruthless than you would guess from his Christmas pudding-like appearance. Yet there are a feast of other fine performances: a conniving Keith Baxter as the rapscallion Prince Hal, a glacially unimpressed John Gielgud as King Henry IV, and Jeanne Moreau on ardent, impassioned form as Falstaff’s sweetheart.” Guardian
