A one off film night, specifically for young adults, will be held in Shrewsbury’s Flaxmill Maltings.

The Flaxmill Maltings

Thanks to a partnership between the British Film Institute (BFI) and rural cinema scheme Flicks in the Sticks, a special film screening of cult classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory will take place in the iconic Shrewsbury building that continues to undergo extensive renovation.

Happening on Tuesday 26 November 2019, the screening is a fantastic opportunity for locals aged 16-30 to come together and enjoy film as a social event, with food, drink and pre-film board games.

The event is part of a scheme to engage young people with film by delivering high-quality screened events to new groups of people, in new and unexpected locations.

The renovation of the Flaxmill has been driven by the desire to bring the building back to life at the heart of the community. Flicks in the Sticks are delighted to be part of this vision, delivering a professional film event in a building of local historical importance.

Event organiser, Arts Alive’s Cultural Co-ordinator Jo Davies, said:-

“I am excited to be involved in this project funded by the BFI. It’s great to be organising a film screening for young people, like myself, in my hometown of Shrewsbury. So come along and indulge your inner child, there’ll be board games and sweet treats from 6pm!”
