Desert Island Flicks is coming to Felton and Lesbury.

A blockbuster, adventure and rom-com rolled into one, Desert Island Flicks sees two performers reimagine, remake and spoof the most memorable movie moments of all time, taking on all the lead roles, stunts and special effects.

The movie mash-up marathon, which is part of the Rural Highlights Touring Scheme, celebrates the iconic characters and thrilling plot twists that have captured imaginations the world over, all set to a sensational soundtrack.

Somewhere between a dance performance, sketch show, a night at the movies and an epic game of charades, Desert Island Flicks also shines a spotlight on who plays which roles and why, exploring social stereotypes and their place in cinema.
