Newcastle upon Tyne - Festive Afternoon Tea and Film
Saturday 11 December 2021, 3.00pm GMT
Alumni and guests are invited to join the Northumbrian Cambridge Association for their Festive Afternoon Tea and Film.
Over the last seven years, our Festive Afternoon Tea and Film at the Tyneside has proved to be a wonderful pre-Christmas treat, and so we’re offering it to members and friends again this year. Once more we will be directed to the Tyneside Cinema’s digital lounge, beautifully decorated with Christmas baubles, trees, stockings, and a cheerful fire. We will be served a glass of prosecco followed by sandwiches, cakes, tea or coffee on vintage china, and popcorn and a candy cane to go with the film. There will also be a cash bar for those who might like something extra. After tea and a chance to chat with friends old and new, we will have a showing of a special Christmas film.
With Renée Zellweger winning the 2020 Oscar for Best Actress in the film Judy, it seems appropriate to look at some of the work of Miss Garland herself. This year, therefore, we will be presenting Meet Me in St Louis (1944), a star vehicle for Judy Garland, directed by Vincent Minnelli, the second of her five husbands. The film is set in St Louis at the time of the 1904 World Fair and features a clutch of well-known songs, including “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”
These events at the Tyneside have proved to be hugely popular with the public and we’re lucky once again to have obtained a booking entirely for NCA members and guests and at a 25% discounted price.
