Punt rides, live music, delicious hot food, an outdoor bar, garden games and – of course – movies galore are all on offer at this year’s River Cam Film Festival. Running from 25 to 28 July, festivities kick off with a showing of A Star is Born on the 25th.
Starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, this fourth adaptation of the classic ‘ageing star meets hopeful ingenue’ story features the Oscar-winning song Shallow as part of its fantastic original soundtrack.
Next up is The Favourite on the 26th. Another Oscar winner – this time for Best Actress Olivia Colman – it’s the story of the love triangle between Queen Anne and her feuding ladies in waiting, Lady Sarah and Abigail. And finally, box-office smash Bohemian Rhapsody, the story of Freddie Mercury’s adventures with Queen, is on the 27th.
Punt taxis set off from Scudamore’s punt station from 6.30pm onwards, and there will be plenty of fab food and drink options to keep you amused until your film starts, as the sun sets. A range of ticket options is available, starting at £15.
