Classic comedy caper on open air big screen

Where: Tewkesbury School Playing Fields

When: Saturday, August 17, 9pm

To commemorate 50 years of the iconic film The Italian Job, The Rotary Club of Tewkesbury is presenting this classic film on an open air big screen, the night before the popular Classic Vehicle Festival.

Pack up your camping chairs and join in a fun-filled evening's entertainment watching the original 1969 film starring Michael Caine and Noël Coward.

The cult classic is often considered as one of Britain's greatest ever comedy capers famed for its endlessly quotable dialogue and of course that famous car chase!

Proceeds from the screening will raise funds for Rotary charities, including the Midlands Air Ambulance

Fancy dress is optional, so why not get in to the spirit of the swinging 60s and don some 1960s clothes? The best dressed person, as identified by the Rotary, will win a special prize!

You are welcome to bring your own picnics, however there will be plenty of food outlets at the showground, plus get into the 1960s vibe on board an iconic red vintage 1967 London Routemaster bus which has been transformed into a fully functioning bar with a retractable roof, serving quality real ales from local breweries and all your other favourite tipples.

The film is rated PG, parental guidance advised (running time: 97mins).

Tickets are £15 per person and children under 3 years old go free. Advance bookings only from the Tewkesbury Classic Vehicle Festival website.
