Kids will be thrilled and parents will enjoy this nostalgic voyage down memory lane – Swallows and Amazons at the Electric Palace cinema with original cast member, Sophie Neville (Titty Walker) on Sunday 20 July – 4pm, writes Annie Waite

Sophie Neville plays Titty Walker in Swallows and Amazons.

Swallows and Amazons, the classic British film, will be introduced by original cast member Sophie Neville (Titty Walker, pictured, left). She’ll be sticking around to take part in a fantastic Question and Answer session after the film. A great family event to end a day of pirate madness! With kind support from  the High Street Traders.

About the film

Arthur Ransome’s much-loved adventures of four children and their sailing boat Swallow; on holiday in the Lake District in 1929, the children are allowed to sail over to the nearby island and set up camp for a few days. They soon realise this has been the territory of two other girls who sail the Amazon, and the scene is set for serious rivalry.
