A 'sing-a-long' screening of the cult movie 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' will open Haddenham's new week-long Feast Festival of arts & culture.
The 1970s movie has passed into film folklore, for its rock music, razor-sharp wit, but mainly because the film is all about audience participation, heckling, singing and dancing.
A Feast Festival spokesperson said: "Rocky Horror is a joyous film that anyone and everyone can join in. It's in keeping with the festival's objectives to encourage and support people getting more involved in Haddenham's arts and cultural activities. It's the perfect communal way to kick off our festival for the community, combining theatre, film, music, dance and comedy."
The event, on Saturday 14th September, is being organised by Haddenham Screen. Tickets are available at Haddenham Library, and online through Haddenham Screen's website. There will be a bar at the screening. Advance ticket purchase is recommended!
The rest of the Feast Festival's schedule for the period 14th-23rd September is currently being finalised, and will be published soon. But already there is a wide spread of exhibitions, talks, workshops, and musical, theatrical and dance events — to go watch or join in yourself. The Festival will culminate in a major community arts fiesta centred around the Village Hall on Saturday 21st September.
