The Wild One

To celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee, we are going back to 1953 and to a film that shocked the world.
Inspired by true events. In 1946 some 4,000 bikers celebrated the 4th July by invading a small town in California.
Starring Marlon Brando and Lee Marvin.


Prior to the main feature we will be showing a short film made in 1940 for the Great Western Railway company.

“England isn’t the only country in the British Isles”.
“Dear old Wales” is cast as the hospitable purveyor of wholesome holidays, with a never-ending supply of “smooth sands, sparkling seas, sunshine and good clean air”
We follow the Cambrian Coast train from Paddington over Barmouth Bridge to see some delightful scenes of 1940’s Barmouth.


As we did in the 50’s the evening will end with both national anthems. We hope you will join us and experience the cinema of 1953.

Thursday 2nd June 2022 @ 6pm.

Tickets £5.

Join the king of the detectives as he brings to life some of his greatest and most baffling cases. This original one-man show has been adapted from the originals written by Arthur Conan Doyle. We eschew the excesses and deviations of other adaptations and return to the original source material. Expect nothing but Strictly Sherlock!

So, leave this weary, workday world behind, Ladies and Gentlemen, and join us at
The Dragon Theatre for some good old-fashioned thrills, chills and chuckles.

But remember, whatever you do – DON’T GO INTO THE CELLAR!!
