Family film event - Kubo and the Two Strings

Sun, 18 Nov 2018 14:30

Helmdon Presents: Family film event - Kubo and the Two Strings

The first children's film of the winter season will be Kubo and the Two Strings (PG), an amazing animation in which a young boy named Kubo must locate a magical suit of armour worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past.

As always, there will be an activity before the film (this time some games involving string!) and snacks for the children during the film. At only £2 per child (adults are free and get a hot drink) it's the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon in November!
