Walton Castle and Curzon Cinema & Arts recently combined talents to offer an exciting new event in Clevedon. They invited people to join them at Walton Castle for a themed evening of delicious food and a fabulous film.
The first evening featured Casablanca, directed by Michael Curtiz in 1942; this undisputed masterpiece is perhaps Hollywood's quintessential statement on love and romance. Winning three Academy Awards, Casablanca has only improved with age, boasting career-defining performances from Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
Before settling in to enjoy the timeless masterpiece, film guests were invited to feast on a distinctive Moroccan style menu, in the glorious surroundings of Walton Castle …
Franco de la Croix-Vaubois, Managing Director at Walton Castle says -
‘Curzon at the Castle is such a natural fit and it will be a truly unique experience in the stunning surrounds of Walton Castle. We look forward to welcoming the Clevedon Community, for what we hope will be the first of many community events. We want the people of Clevedon to know that if they are planning special events, private or business, to please get in touch; this is a perfect way for them to experience the castle first hand. This is a fantastic opportunity to support a local project and we look forward to working on more projects with the Curzon.’
Susannah Shaw, CEO at the Curzon Cinema says -
‘We have always wondered what could be achieved at this fabulous venue, and we are delighted to have been invited by Walton Castle to try out some of our ideas. We hope this will be the start of many lovely adventures…’
More events are planned for 2016 – dates and details will be advised.
