Film Club, Friday 20th December

The next Whixley Film club night will be on Friday November 15th at 8:00pm in the Village Hall when will be showing La Vie en Rose. From the slums of Paris to the limelight of New York, Edith Piaf's life was a battle to sing and survive, live and love. Raised in poverty, Edith's magical voice and her passionate romances and friendships with the greatest names of the period--Yves Montand, Jean Cocteau, Charles Aznavour, Marlene Dietrich, Marcel Cerdan and others--made her a star all around the world. But in her audacious attempt to tame her tragic destiny, the Little Sparrow - her nickname - flew so high she could not fail to burn her wings.

You don't have to be a member of the film club to come along and give it a try. It's a social evening with a full bar service, and if you would like to join it's only £20 a year for as many films as you want to see. Click HERE for more information
