This year it's a biggy with Ronnie Hazelhurst and his Orchestra playing live, Earsie-Kneesie-Nosey, the Quiz etc. Don't miss this one!

The day lasts from 2pm to 8pm, and as well as several classic shorts, it will feature our resident speaker (all the way from London) and film historian David Wyatt, who this year will focus upon "Laurel and Hardy and the Will Hay Connection", the contents of which are a secret even to the organisers.

There will be the Earsie-Kneesie-Nosey World Championships and a display of material from Internet sites from all around the world. In the words of the Constitution, there will be "scholarly overtones" and a lot of fun and "social undertones".
