Soundstage Festival presents: Let’s make a Film Score!

Broadway Cinema

Georges Méliès’s pioneering silent film Le voyage dans la lune was first released in 1902, featuring dreamy and theatrical scenes of a trip to the moon. The intricate and surreal sets will appeal to both adults and children, and at 12 minutes in length is sure to hold your attention.

In collaboration with Soundstage Festival, The Family Orchestra will be performing a new recently composed score to the film before the screening of Back To The Future. A great double bill of entertainment for the family, and a taste of a DIY orchestra that might inspire you to get involved!

The Hallé Film Music Concert: Great Sci-Fi Movies

It’s hard not to love a good sci-fi soundtrack – swooping, suspense filled themes full of pomp and circumstance that make scenes of tension and triumph utterly unforgettable. Putting them in the spotlight, this Saturday The Hallé present a night of live Sci-Fi soundtracks at The Royal Concert Hall, including themes from Star Wars, ET, Star Trek and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Carpe Jugulum

Lace Market Theatre

Presented by The Lace Market Youth Theatre, this performance of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novel Carpe Jugulum sees the dark world of vampiredom turned on its head. Sporting bright clothes, and with a penchant for wine over blood, these mythic archetypes are hardly what you will expect and certain to make you chuckle.



For those craving a little adrenaline fuelled adventure this weekend, round up a gang and go try out one of Nottingham’s premier escape room experiences. The intricately themed rooms will test your logical problem solving skills and teamwork as you race against the clock to escape! For those who enjoy a bit of a fright, you may want to try the Butcher or Howitz rooms, but we particularly like the sound of delving into Alexander Curio’s house of worldly treasures.
