We don’t want to give too much away about our plans for Festival Week (24th July to 31st July), but we can give you a few tasters… Following a successful night of science fiction campness and thrills last year, we are hosting another ‘Northstar’ sci-fi night, this time in co-operation with the Forbidden Planet store. …
