The Blue Walnut hosts a vibrant Film Club, which meets on the first Thursday of each month to view and discuss their own choice of film.  We occasionally have spare seats available which the Club will release for £5 per seat, please contact us for details.  

We open for private functions on request.  Prices vary and are tailored to your personal preference depending on whether you wish to combine a meal with your film choice or whether you simply wish to hire the cafe/bar area for a party with buffet.
