Hey Lovelies, 

It is event time! And you lovelies, I hope, are going to love this, because I have never been so happy about somebody creating something! This should have been made a long time ago! 

Flickerama is a brand new festival which will take over this summer, but instead of bands, the headliners are classic films! Whoop! Set in Oxfordshire in England, the event will take place on the 14th August until the 16th August and has been created by Tom Lawes, the director and owner of The Electric in Birmingham, which is the oldest cinema in the country that is still going. 

Films set to take over the event include some big films and film inspired events, for example a 1950s party will be held to celebrate headliner ‘Back to the Future’, as well as a masquerade ball to celebrate the hit film ‘Labyrinth’, a Dude Night to celebrate ‘Big Lebrowski’, a live orchestra will play along with the film ‘Jaws’ to add extra tension and a Blues Brothers band will be celebrating the event along with a screening of the film. 

The event will have a main stage for big films at the event, as well as different tents with a theme for each such as a horror one and a glamour for another, there is also a child’s tent for the little ones that will feature an extra special ‘Frozen’ treat. As well as camping and glamping facilities, food stalls, cocktails and bars, interactive events, live music, workshops, memorabilia from some top films and so much more lovelies. 

At the moment Tom is in Cannes, at the film festival, where he will be launching the event, but before he went he said this about the event: “Having worked in the film industry for over twenty years, I have seen a real growing trend for outdoor event cinema,” says Tom Lawes.  “And these often seem to be one-off events around a single film.  Flickerama takes this idea to the next level, by creating a film festival that's an actual festival – screening a three day programme of fantastic films with the added attractions of themed events, workshops and lots of delicious eating and drinking facilities on site.  Plus plenty of room for camping and lazing around while taking in the views! Flickerama will be an event for film lovers where everything is in one place, in a beautiful environment.”
