Wednesday

B.C. Film Society  – ‘LES QUATRE CENT COUPS’  
at The Three Tuns Inn
Time – 8pm
If any one film can be said to have launched on the world France’s Nouvelle Vague, it is this, Truffaut’s plainly autobiographical debut.  The first of his unforgettable films about the growing up of Antoine Doinel (played by Jean-Pierre Leaud).  Antoine, who misbehaves at school, runs away from home, steals and tells lies, nevertheless discerns what’s truthful in the confused world around him.
Admission – £5

LADY MARGARET CLIVE AND FRIENDS
at The Church Barn
Time – 2.30pm
Bob Fowke tells a tale of pagodas and diamonds, of wars, of elephants, of storms at sea, of highwaymen, of lost children, of pet leopards, of orphans, of quarrels among friends, of reconciliation, of vast wealth, of kindness, of correspondence over huge distances. Seventeen-year-old Margaret Masquelyne sailed to Madras in 1752 and married Robert Clive the next year. She was clever and funny, fascinated by music and astronomy and many of her friends and female relations were equally gifted. The story of British women in India in that early era has been badly neglected. Bob Fowke’s talk attempts the right the wrong.
Admission Free – Donations to Festival Funds invited.
