Halloween Pumpkin Hunt

As many children will be unable to go trick or treating this year due to Covid-19, it has been suggested on social media that, just like we all did with rainbows, we could paint, draw, or use real pumpkins and put them in our windows. The kids can then go on a Halloween Pumpkin Hunt and for every one they find the parents could put a treat in their bags. This can be done throughout half term as well (24th October to 1st November) so you don’t have to stick to the one night. Will you be taking part?

Vue Cinemas
From 11th November

War Horse

THIS November, Nick Stafford’s on-stage adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s esteemed novel, War Horse, returns to Vue for the first time since 2014 – and tickets are on sale now. From Wednesday 11 November, thespians and film-lovers alike can watch this powerfully moving and imaginative drama, as National Theatre Live: War Horse is screening back on the big screen for the first time in six years - and for six weeks only. Filmed in front of a live audience, Stafford introduces the stage to the story of young Albert’s treacherous mission to find and return his beloved horse Joey who, at the outbreak of World War One, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. Prepare for a breath-taking production, as Stafford’s adaptation includes the use of life-size puppets who portray breathing, galloping and charging horses in this thrilling stage-play. Not only can customers at Vue escape to luxury in the ultimate seat, screen and sound, but they can do so in the safest possible way, thanks to the range of measures introduced to keep staff and customers safe. These include a booking system with in-built physical distancing, reduced touch points, hand sanitiser throughout the site, and staggered film start and end times to avoid crowding.
