Stamford cinema to show classic British films including Monty Python's Life of Brian and Chariots of Fire
Five classic British films will be screened next month during a festival to mark the King’s coronation and raise money for a school’s cadet group.
Chariots of Fire, Lawrence of Arabia, The Long Good Friday, Monty Python’s Life of Brian, and Shakespeare in Love will show at Stamford Arts Centre Cinema in St Mary's Street.
Tickets are £9.80 (£9 concession), with profits from the festival helping 10 members of Stamford Welland Academy’s Combined Cadet Force fund an expedition to Borneo with the 1st Battalion Royal Gurkha Rifles, where they will trek through the Mulu national rainforest. The cadets have a fundraising page and hope to raise £1,000.
Film details and booking information can be found on the Stamford Arts Centre website.
Burghley Estates is sponsoring the festival, with Knead Pubs – which runs the Tobie Norris pub in St Paul’s Street, Stamford – and Dawson’s of Stamford in Red Lion Square each sponsoring a screening.
