Zombies, Police and Cornettos!

Bit of a strange one this ....

Anyone fancy a whole night of Simon Pegg & Nick Frost? I am screening the "Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy" (Shaun of the Dead/ Hot Fuzz/ World's End) as part of Reading Comedy Festival, and we’re also holding a fancy dress competition which to be honest i am getting very nervous about so this is part meet – up, part favour request ;)

Tickets are on sale for £15 but if you fancy coming along and are willing to give the fancy dress a go I would be more than happy to get you a free ticket.
Nothing too fancy needed, zombies, police or any character from the film will do (a red tie, a name badge and a cricket bat is all you need to be a very convincing shaun!). You can be as imaginative as you like and they all are brilliant films so it will be a fun evening! You won’t need to do anything special, just come along, enjoy the film and you might even win a prize for the fancy dress! Any takers?

    Just a quick note about tomorrow. I have to (sort of )work registering people for the fancy dress comp before the film so although I'll be there from about 6pm in the foyers it might be easier if there is someone else who can be the contact for the group and i'll catch up with you later. any volunteers? If not you can find me in the foyers trying to take pictures of zombies! my number is[masked] in case you can't find me.

      Oh charity i would like to go but it is expensive for me.. :(

      October 3, 2013

    • Charity

      thats a shame! It is quite expensive but its all three films so its a full night of entertainment - if you can stay awake that long ;) I can only get hold of a free ticket if you take part in the fancy dress I'm afraid. It doesnt have to be too elaborate but if you want to be a zombie a cop any other characters or even a cornetto I can get you a free ticket.

    Really looking forward to this! Just a quick note about tickets. Ive reserved a couple of rows for meet up and so will be able to give you your tickets at the venue. As I said I can give you free tickets if you dress up but if you dont fancy that and just want to come in your civies you would be more than welcome, just buy a ticket seperately (from www.readingarts.com) and I'll swap it with one of our allocation on the night so that we can all sit together.
