Cartoon fun at first kids' film Melksham film festival
The creators of Wallace and Gromit will be coming to Melksham this month, as part of the town’s first children’s film festival.
Artists from Aardman will be holding a model-making workshop on February 12, to show children how to make their own character.
Three Wallace and Gromit films will be shown, along with the studio’s feature-length film, The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!
The festival will feature screenings and workshops all through the half-term week, starting with a free fun day on Monday, with films including Lady and the Tramp, Shrek and Hook.
A film-making workshop will also be held, as well as a session offering the chance to design a superhero.
The film listings for Wednesday are still to be decided, with the day’s schedule due to be chosen by a public vote.
The film festival is organised by Melksham Town Council and supported by the National Lottery. Details and times of events are online at www.melkshamfilmfestival.
