WINTER EVENTS @ THE ATH

Listen you lot, Christmas can take a holiday this year cos Flashheart’s in town. And I know what you’re thinking, can Warminster cope with this much excitement? Woof woof! My old mate Eddie has invited me and all you less attractive mortals to join him as he throws away his freedom. Then we can all sit back, codpiece in hand, and watch as he outmanoeuvres the Bishop, discovers an interesting wine from the new world and escapes from the dungeon of certain death. 

If you book early enough then you may be lucky enough to be close enough to smell my pheromones. And don’t worry ladies, there will be plenty left for you too. 

Signed, Flash

P.S. Isn’t this the multi-nominated production team. I hear they’re very good...yes, Lord Flashheart...Ouch...Yes, of course if you were directing it it would’ve won all the awards. 
Signed, Lord Percy Percy

  FISHERMAN'S FRIENDS

Wed 4th Dec


1 hour 50 minutes  Cert. 12A 
(UK - 2019)  

A feel good film about a London music executive (Daniel Mays) who heads to Cornwall on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty-singing fishermen. He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ struggling to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. Attempting to overcome the fishermen’s scepticism about the music business, he finds himself drawn into the community, has his integrity tested and ultimately is shown the meaning of loyalty, love and friendship. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served before the film.

Please note; A limited number of guest tickets for films are available in advance online or from the box office. If the advance tickets sell out, more tickets may be available on the door on theBuy tickets day.

Non members tickets £5.50
