Visit the museum this May and experience our museum at night! We will be showing two films in Abbot’s Hall Barn as part of the national Culture 24’s Museum’s At Night weekend.

On the 17th May families can come and see ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ (PG).  An adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic children's story, where Max, a disobedient little boy sent to bed without his supper, creates his own world--a forest inhabited by ferocious wild creatures that crown Max as their ruler. 5pm showing.

On the 18thof May come along and see the cult film ‘Withnail and I’ (15). Two out of work actors escape their squalid London flat for an idyllic holiday in the countryside. Faced with no modern conveniences, a bunch of oddball locals, and a surprise visit from an amorous ‘Uncle Monty’, their wits are tested, along with their friendship. 7pm showing.

The films have been chosen to reflect the rural landscape in which the museum is situated, a landscape that can often seem dream-like and unreal, and the folklore and traditions that abound in the countryside.

Tickets are available in advance from the Tourist Information Centre, numbers are limited. £5 adult, £3 child (4-16), under 12s must be accompanied by an adult. No under 15's will be admitted to Withnail and I
