Conjurer’s Kitchen presents a Sleepy Hollow Movie-Taste-Along

10th May, 8:00pm

The adventurous Conjurer’s Kitchen returns this May for a special taste-along screening of director Tim Burton’s take on the Sleepy Hollow legend, screening as part of the 2018 A Matter Of Life & Death Festival.

As usual for a Conjurer’s Kitchen event, expect a collection of surprise edible treats to enjoy, with the film paused at specific points so you can enjoy some deliciously devilish food that’s weird, wonderful and a little bit macabre. Heads will roll…

Tickets from £20.70 are available here.
