Bugsy Malone’s Splurge Picnic

Bugsy Malone

Bedford Film Festival, in partnership with Sprint Convergence Ltd, is VERY excited about this year’s children’s film, Bugsy Malone!

As the film celebrates its 40th anniversary we’re holding a special, semi-immersive screening of Bugsy Malone inviting you to join Bugsy, Blousey, Tallulah and the gang at Fat Sam’s Speakeasy.

Ater the film, you’re all then invited to join us for a picnic in the garden before re-enacting the best scene from one of the greatest children’s films ever, the famous splurge gun and custard pie fight!

We hope your whole family will join us for what is set to be an excellent, if messy, revisit to a film many adults will have loved growing up, and an introduction of a fun family film to a new generation.

The full event schedule will be:

  • 10:30 – come and join Fat Sam in his speak easy for a relaxing drink and some music.. It’ll be like you’ve taken a time machine back to New York of 1920’s. Go for a ride in Dandy Dan’s pedal powered car, but watch out for Fat Sam’s henchmen looking to splurge any dodgy looking characters.
  • 11:30 – Head to the main auditorium and watch Bugsy Malone
  • 13:05 – After the film head out on to the lawn for a Dandy Dan picnic, don’t worry if Fat Sam and the boys turn up – you will have your own supply of splurge to defend yourself with.
  • 14:00 – event ends.

Note to Parents: After the picnic all attendees are invited to join in with a splurge ‘fight’. The foam used is a water based soap foam from a professional ‘Bugsy Malone’ stage prop company. It is designed not to stain clothing and can be washed out easily, however, please don’t dress your children in their best clothing if you want them to take part. We will provide ponchos too if you wish them to wear one. The foam is not know to cause any allergic reactions but your discretion on this is advised. If you or your child has any dietary requirements, please email info@BedfordFilmFestival.org no later than 15 September 2016 so that an appropriate lunch can be made for your child.
