Join us for another helping of Phil Kay. Last time he played at the cinema it was a sell out, rip-roaring success. So don't miss out getting a generous dollop of Christmas hilarity.

Phil Kay live comedy: Friday 20 December, 8pm

Also featuring support from local funnypersons John Knowles and Kate Tym.

Festive feature films

Bring someone some Christmas cheer by taking them along to one of our festive movies in the run up to the big day this December, including The Shop Around the Corner and It's A Wonderful Life.
