An exciting new film programme is coming to Grantham thanks to a partnership between St Wulfram’s Church, Grantham and South Kesteven District Council (SKDC).

Films will be screened in the beautiful surroundings of St Wulfram’s Church and the programme will include Saturday morning family films and a selection of classics and newer releases for selected Thursday evenings.

The programme for May 2018 is set to include Wonder, Paddington and Cinema Paradiso, and looking ahead, the Rector, Fr Stuart Cradduck, has said: “Im delighted that St Wulframs and SKDC can work in partnership in offering a cinematic experience to the people of Grantham during the building of the new cinema.

When we first heard that during the build for the new cinema that sadly the old cinema would have to close, we wanted along with SKDC to try and attempt to fill the gap! We recognise that the nearest cinema would be in Newark, and that not everyone drives.

Although it is a limited offer, due to the existing demands on the church with its main activities and services we offer, we hope that there will be a film that everyone can come and see. We are grateful for the work members at the Guildhall Arts Centre have done to produce an exciting list of films throughout the year, and we look forward to welcoming people into St Wulframs for a wonderful experience.”

Tickets are £4 (£3 concessions) and may be booked via the Guildhall Arts Centre Box Office on 01476 40 61 58 or online. The programme complements the Guildhall Arts Centre’s programme of films, which will continue through the summer.
