Dessert is Roasted peach, Prosecco jelly, and yoghurt and peach semifreddo.

Dingley Dell will be sponsoring the event and representatives from the company will give a brief talk at the beginning of the evening.

Limited tickets are available for the three-course meal with Michael Palin starting at 6pm at £35 per head, which includes a ticket to the film, live on-stage interview and audience Q&A.

There will also be an outside food option starting at 6pm of Dingley Dell pulled pork in a roll with apple slaw – these tickets can be purchased for £14 and includes the film, live on-stage interview and audience Q&A.

Finally a ticket for the film, live on-stage interview and audience Q&A only, will be £10 with the film commencing at 7:30pm.
