Shrewsbury’s Flaxmill hosts young people’s Film Night

A one off film night, specifically for young adults, will be held in Shrewsbury’s 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 26th November, 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

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 Coordinator Jo Davies says: “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!”
