Overview

“They’re coming to get you, Barbara”

Reports are coming in that the bodies of the recently dead are returning to life and attacking the living. Surrounding an isolated farmhouse, the dead clamour to get to a disparate group of strangers, barricaded within as they struggle to survive the night. But are the dead the biggest threat? When will rescue come? Can they hold out until dawn?

Taking place in the College's atmospheric nineteenth century Great Hall, this Halloween screening will allow you to see behind-the-scenes of a beautiful historic building while watching an iconic film.

One of the most influential films in the history of horror, Night of the Living Dead has inspired countless writers and directors since its release in the late sixties.

The film will be preceded with an introduction. Doors open at 6.30 pm for a 7.00 pm start. Admission will be only for those over 18 years of age.

Refreshments will not be available, but visitors are welcome to bring snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.
