You’ve gotta pick a pocket or two!

The big screen adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel, featuring Fagin, The Artful Dodger, Bill Sikes and, of course, Oliver the workhouse orphan, is an exciting, sad and funny story set amongst the slums of Victorian London. Starring Ron Moody, Shani Wallis and Oliver Reed, the film includes the numbers ‘As Long As He Needs Me’, ‘Consider Yourself’ and ‘Reviewing The Situation’.


The dementia friendly screenings are programmed in partnership with the ‘A Life More Ordinary’ Project at The Dukes Theatre, Lancaster. This is a screening for people with dementia, memory loss and their family, friends and carers but is open to the general public. Please note that pastoral care is not provided at these events.  A friend, family member or carer must also attend.
The screenings have a relaxed atmosphere so that people are welcome to move around and come and go as they please. Each screening includes an interval with live entertainment, provided by and in partnership with Welsh National Opera and supported by Canu Conwy, the Conwy County Borough Council staff choir.
