27 - Finalé:

An evening with James Harpham and Sherlock

7.30pm - Marden House - Admission £7 (£5 Friends; £1 children)

In Sherlock Jnr, starring Buster Keaton, Buster plays a mild mannered film projectionist, who also has a fancy to be a detective (hence the title). Buster dreams of entering the film he’s projecting, which has a Sherlock Holmes type of film plot. Buster throws himself at the screen and into the film, thus becoming involved in two storylines at once. The intrigue is then to see how he gets or doesn’t get the girl, while solving the crime (or not).

James Harpham will accompany this silent film on the piano.

The second half of the evening will be more informal and will consist of a piano jazz session from James Harpham, a light buffet, and a closing speech by the Festival President

Please note the change to silent films for this event which were advertised in the Festival brochure.
