Museum banquet to feature in new film

Have your say

The MUSEUM of East Anglian Life is hosting a weekend of events to be used as part of a feature film.

The film, On Landguard Point, will premiere across the country as part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad celebrations.

On Saturday, July 30, hundreds of people from across the region will share a giant communal banquet in the Hayfield at the Museum of East Anglian Life, all of which will be recorded for the film.

At the banquet, guests will feast on recipes from the On Landguard Point Cookbook.

On the Sunday a live audience will be recorded enjoying entertainment and arts in a big ring including Suffolk Punch horses and musicians.

The artistic feature film is being created by Suffolk born artist Robert Pacitti as part of ‘Artists taking the lead’ - a project funded by Arts Council England.

The project involves 12 public art commissions - one in each of the nine English regions plus Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales - as a cultural celebration of the history of the modern Olympic and paralympic movements,

More than 350 free tickets are available to the event on a first come, first serve basis.
