Film premiere author comes to Sidmouth

A DECADE ago Branscombe Women’s Institute took over Sidmouth’s Radway Cinema to see Calendar Girls.

Now Branscombe Book Club has booked the circle for the premiere of The Exotic Marigold Hotel, starring Julie Walters, Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy, for what promises to be a great film version of Deborah Moggach’s book These Foolish Things.

“Those of us who have read the book…will know we are in for a treat and a really good laugh as it takes an unusual look at ageing,” said organiser Kate Norbury, who lives in Amyatt’s Terrace, Sidmouth.

Kate is delighted the film showing on Friday, February 24, links with a visit to Sidmouth’s Kennaway House by prolific writer Deborah, who launches the Readers and Writers 2012 event on Thursday, March 15.

Tickets are �8 and can be booked through Kennaway House – 01395 515551. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

“There are only 80 seats and last time we were really over-subscribed,” said Kate, who said any profits would go to a local charity.
