So, once again they band together to devise a plan to escape this new hell. But the rules of engagement have changed, in fact, they can't even remember what they were and that's half the problem.

The story of a widowed cleaning lady in 1950s London who falls madly in love with a couture Dior dress and decides that she must have one of her own. After she works, starves, and gambles to raise the funds to pursue her dream, she embarks on an adventure to Paris which will change not only her own outlook, but the very future of the House of Dior

**​PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Owing to the continued rise in running costs, we regret that we must increase our entry fees from £5 pp to £6 pp with effect from 16 January. This is our first price increase since we began our Film Nights some 10 years ago and we have endeavoured to keep it as low as possible.

We shall endeavour to avoid any further increases during 2023 and look forward to seeing you in the near future
