Murder Mystery

"Lights, Camera, Murder" by Andrew Hull

An evening of mystery and suspense.
A chance not just to enjoy homemade Drimpton food, but also to test your detective skills!

The evening will include a meal, served at your table, canapés served upon arrival
Tickets are available at £10

Enquiries through the Box Office : 01308 868843
There will also be licensed bar available to keep you refreshed as you track down the murderer(s).

BACK STORY…..
Siddlington Studios (Drimpton Village Hall!) is shooting the latest British blockbuster, 'A Bitter-sweet Affair', and competition winners (the audience - you!!!) have been invited along for a day to watch the filming and to see what goes on behind the camera.

The cast and crew have been working on the film for a few weeks and tensions are running high. Old flames, jealous lovers and past tragedy are just a few of the extras to make an appearance. Will the competition winners get to see more than just their favourite film stars and will everyone make it safely to the end of the day…?

You, the audience interrogate the cast and try to work-out whodunnit!

[This is a fundraiser for Village Hall plans for the new improved car park.]

Film Club -'SULLY'

On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed the "Miracle on the Hudson" when Captain "Sully" Sullenberger glided his disabled plane onto the icy waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard.
However, even as Sully was being heralded for his amazing feat of aviation skill, an investigation was underway as to his competence.
A highly-recommended film starring Tom Hanks.
