THE Haddenham Autumn Festival is offering a varied entertainment programme during November and the event gets underway on Saturday.

"We have been working very hard in Haddenham to bring together some events to lighten up autumn evenings," said John Shippey, of the Haddenham Autumn Theatre Group.

Assisted by Arts in Cambs on Tour and Arts Development in East Cambridgeshire, the Haddenham group aims to bring top quality productions right to the doorstep of local residents.

The first event is a showing of The Blue Brothers, a comedy film starring John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd. There will be a bar as well as hot dogs.

The next event, on Thursday, November 9, features a dance company, Trans-Mission - State of Emergency, which has choreographers fusing jazz and contemporary dance with their African heritage, according to the programme. Tickets cost £6.50, £2 (under sixteens) or £5.50 (concessions) also from Haddenham Galleries. The venue is Arkenstall.
