The launch of the vintage film and tea afternoons at the Dingemans Centre

VINTAGE film and tea afternoons have been launched at the Dingemans Centre in Steyning.

The series of four sessions, including a black and white Ealing comedy film and a traditional afternoon tea, has been set up for the over-55s thanks to West Sussex County Council funding.

The launch on Friday, March 21, featuring Passport to Pimlico, was well attended, with the lounge set up as a cinema and the film shown on the recently-purchased large flat screen television.

Centre co-ordinator Julian McDowell gave a short introduction to the film, including a brief history of the Ealing film studios.

The café was dressed in a vintage style, including tablecloths and china crockery, and customers were given waitress service while listening to music from the ’50s and ’60s, played on a record player.

There are sessions on April 11, 18 and 25, from 2pm to 5pm. The cost is £2, to include an English high tea of sandwiches, cakes and scones.

To book, email donna.bailey@impact-initiatives.org.uk or call the Dingemans Centre on 01903 879297.
