Celebrate the magic of the movies! 9am - 12 noon

Join us for an unforgettable day of discovery!

Saturday, 5 November we open our doors to families, our Cranford community and the wider public to join in the celebration of all things cinema as we help bring to life the magic of the movies. This fun-filled filled morning for families from Nursery to Year 6 (ages 3-11) will be an interactive and immersive experience to help inspire young minds. The sights and sounds of behind-the-scenes movie making will be on offer from seeing character cars from the movies to being in the limelight in a green screen movies studio and much much more.
