Film Screening of ‘The Just Cause’ – Worthing’s Community Play

The film of ‘The Just Cause – Victorian Romance and a Rollicking Good Riot’ is being shown on the Big Screen on SUNDAY, November 9th at 3pm at the Worthing Pavilion. This was Worthing’s unique community play that took place in June this year and included a cast of 200 and a total audience of around 1,500.

Many South Downs Folk Singers took part in the play or came along to see it. Ann Feloy, writer and director, who ran the South Downs Songs workshops with Chris Hare and Emily Longhurst, included a number of the traditional songs of the South Downs in the play which everyone sang along to.

Admission on November 9th FREE. Doors open at 2.30pm, so please come early to avoid disappointment.

If you didn’t get to see the play, now’s your chance. This is a one-off event to see the film on a cinema screen. Don’t miss out on all the fun.
