An Evening with Michael Palin

The much-loved British comedian, actor, writer and television presenter, Michael Palin, will be coming to The Riverside on Thursday 2nd August to help launch our forthcoming food and drink film festival, Film Feast Suffolk

We will be screening Michael's 1984 comedy film, A PRIVATE FUNCTION.This classic post-war comedy features arguably Michael Palin's most cherished film role outside of Monty Python. He stars as Gilbert Chilvers, the put-upon chiropodist ordered by his snobbish wife (Maggie Smith) to bring home the bacon - which here literally means stealing an illegally reared pig!

Alan Bennett's superb script evocatively captures the privations of ration-book Britain, sharing the bittersweet taste of the very best Ealing comedies.

The three-course meal inspired by the film has already sold out, but there is still an outside food option available at £14 per head (includes ticket to film/interview) or just the film/interview option at £10 per person.We are honoured that Dingley Dell Pork are sponsoring this event.
