Beccles Public Hall has teamed up with world-renowned film makers Aardman Animations of Bristol to provide some super entertainment for all the family during the Easter holiday.

The film festival will kick off with a double-bill film screening of Shaun the Sheep - The Movie followed by the brand new adventure The Farmer’s Llamas at 11am on Wednesday, March 30.

The fun continues the next day on Thursday, March 31, when Jim Parkyn, expert model maker from Aardman Animations, will be visiting the hall to run three workshops helping youngsters create their very own Shaun the Sheep. The workshops will be held at 11am, 2pm and 3.30pm, and tickets are expected to sell out fast.

The following Wednesday, April 6, the film festival continues with classic Wallace and Gromit adventures starting with the double-bill of A Grand Day Out and The Wrong Trousers at 2pm.

The festival will come to a close on Thursday, April 7, with more Wallace and Gromit episodes - A Close Shave and A Matter of Loaf and Death, also at 2pm.

Sue Bergin, events co-ordinator at Beccles Public Hall said: “Wallace and Gromit films are such great family favourites that we want you to come and experience them on the big screen if you’ve only ever seen them on TV. Tickets are very reasonably priced making the events extremely good value.

“So come and make a date with those lovable favourites from the film world! For more details of all the events, look out for some of us in town tomorrow when we’ll be giving out flyers, look in the latest programme or pop into the hall. ”
