Wednesday 21 Aug  
Seaton Delaval Hall Formal Gardens

Doors open 8.30pm

Cert PG

(Children must be accompanied by an adult)

A scientist (Vincent Price) builds an animated human being -- the gentle Edward (Johnny Depp). The scientist dies before he can finish assembling Edward, leaving the young man with a freakish appearance accentuated by the scissor blades he has instead of hands. Loving suburban saleswoman Peg (Dianne Wiest) discovers Edward and takes him home, where he falls for Peg's teen daughter (Winona Ryder). However, despite his kindness and artistic talent, Edward's hands make him an outcast.

We return to the wonderful Seaton Delaval Hall for a special 'outdoor' screening of Tim Burton's classic Edward Scissorhands starring Johnny Depp, in the beautiful setting of the formal gardens.

TICKETS £20- no longer available

Seaton Delaval Hall is a Grade I listed country house located between Seaton Sluice and Seaton Delaval. It was designed by Sir John Vanbrugh in 1718 for Admiral George Delaval and is now owned by the National Trust.
