2. The Nile Hilton Incident at the Curzon Cinema, Clevedon
The pick of a packed programme at the Curzon in Clevedon is The Nile Hilton Incident showing at 7.30pm on Sunday April 22.

From 5am on Sunday April 22, local naturalist David Goode will walk you through Prior Park garden at first light, through old wild flower pastures and up into Rainbow Woods, listening to the rising dawn chorus. The event includes breakfast. Booking is essential – call 0344 249 1895.
