2.  The Reader

Our film for Thursday 1st October is Oscar winning The Reader screenplay by David Hare and starring Kate Winslet and Ralph Fiennes.  For 15-year-old Michael Berg, a chance meeting with an older woman leads to far more than he ever imagined. The woman in question is Hanna, and before long they embark on a passionate, clandestine love affair which leaves Michael both euphoric and confused.

For Hanna is not all she seems. Years later, as a law student observing a trial in Germany, Michael is shocked to realize that the person in the dock is Hanna. The woman he had loved is a criminal. Much about her behaviour during the trial does not make sense. But then suddenly, and terribly, it does - Hanna is not only obliged to answer for a horrible crime, she is also desperately concealing an even deeper secret.

Guest tickets for sale in The Windjammer £3.50 7.30-7.55 Our bar opens at The Guildhall at 7.30 - the film to be shown at 8pm approx.


3.   More Food Festival!

This is a mere snippet from the second newsletter we are hosting for the Food Festival, to read the original in its full format, and you really should! click here   Here is just a small part: "Saturday 24th on the South Embankment, in the Market Square or the Market Marquee there will be so much to 'See and Sample' with over 70 different exhibitors over the weekend; far too many to list here but you will find details in the Festival Programme, soon to be available at the TIC and outlets around Dartmouth. Come along and Browse, Graze, Taste, Buy, Watch, Learn and have a lot of Fun.
Then you can come back and do it all over again on Sunday 25th, in the same place but with some different stalls, relax with great food & drink and enjoy some art & crafts." 

Of course you can always enjoy good pub food or fine dining, to see what Dartmouth's restaurants have to offer click here.
