Close-Ups Events
These events are enjoyable, informal and sociable with no prior knowledge of the films necessary and opportunities to gain insights into many different aspects of film via a combination of input, informal discussion and a variety of fascinating film clips. Close-Ups are held at Thoresby College on the South Quay.

Our Close-Ups events are £5 for members and their guests, otherwise £6, which includes complementary refreshments.   This can be paid on the door but please book your place in advance by e-mailing email hidden; JavaScript is required as this helps us with catering and photocopies!

Coach trip to The Collection in Lincoln, where we will see the film “The Happy Prince” in the afternoon.

The cast includes many well-known names such as Colin Firth, Colin Morgan, Anna Chancellor, Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson and Ronald Pickup.

We will leave King’s Lynn at 8:30am and will arrive back about 8pm, which will give time to wander round Lincoln before the film. The cost will be £12.50 for members, who may bring one non-member (£15). Booking is essential using the Booking Form e-mailed to members.
