A free screening of the 1954 musical film Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
Set in the 1850s, Adam goes into town seeking a wife to run the household. He finds Milly, a waitress, and persudes her to come home with him to his ranch in Oregon. There, she discovers that Adam and his six brothers, Benjamin, Caleb, Daniel, Ephraim, Frank and Gideon are slobs!
Unfamiliar with the ways of true love, the brothers think the best way to get hitched is to kidnap their prospective brides, but Milly decides to change their outlook.
This film is a joyous romp from the Golden Age of the movie musical: exciting, heart-warming, well choreographed and technically accomplished.

Everyone is welcome to attend these events and tickets are free. Lights will be left on low throughout the film and the sound level will be slightly lower than normal. Staff and volunteers will be on hand throughout but please note pastoral care is not provided.
A friend, family member or carer must also attend if pastoral care is required
