October Half Term Fun at the Regal!

Families looking for entertainment this October Half Term need look no further than the Regal! A programme of films and fun workshops promises to offer something for everyone whatever the weather.

The film of the popular children’s ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ books is showing on Monday and Tuesday evening at 7.30pm, and on Wednesday, Dr Seuss’ ‘The Lorax’ takes over with showings at 1.30pm and 6.30pm. Both films have been box-office triumphs over the Summer and promise to be an excellent afternoon or evening's entertainment.

Before the afternoon showing of ‘The Lorax’ on Wednesday, we're excited to be bringing back CineMonkeys, the family games and craft workshop that proved so popular in August. Children can enjoy Lorax-themed fun from 12.30pm until the film starts in the Regal Community Centre for just £1 per child. We'll also be offering the chance to enroll as a CineMonkey, with free goodiebags and the chance to leave your children with us and go enjoy a quiet coffee in our cafe or a leisurely look around the town. Just make sure you're back by the time the film starts!

Oscar is super-excited to be back!

We're also excited to announce that local artist David Symons will be leading two animation workshops for us on Thursday for children aged 6 and up. Each two and a half hour session will guide participants through making their own micro animated film, using digital cameras and stop-motion animation. Sessions start at 10am and 1pm, cost £2.50 per child and include a DVD of all the films made in the day. Parents are invited to join in with under 12s at no extra charge. Pre-booking is essential, as we expect these sessions to be popular and places are limited. 

To book places at CineMonkeys or on one of the animation workshops, contact Sarah Fellows on or 07980 692302. Film tickets can be purchased on the day, or in advance at the Regal’s box office in person or online at
