The Bookshop – film

£3.50

The Bookshop

Friday 6th Sept

to launch the Freshwater Book Fair

This film night special will feature an introductory talk by Freshwater Parish Councillor Daniel James – launching to new book fair and explaining what is going on in Freshwater over the weekend.

The film, chosen to reflect booksellers, The Bookshop stars Bill Nighy and  Emily Mortimer and is the story of Florence Green, a free-spirited widow, who puts grief behind her and risks everything to open up a bookshop – the first such shop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough, England. But this mini social revolution soon brings her fierce enemies: she invites the hostility of the town’s less prosperous shopkeepers and also crosses Mrs. Gamart, Harborough’s vengeful, embittered alpha female who is a wannabe doyenne of the local arts scene.

7pm for a 7.30pm start

Please note that when online seat reservations are all taken,  seats WILL also be available on the door, on the night.

Parking is available in the car park at Moa Place, opposite the library.
