'Custard' Pie Fight
Due to popular demand the date of our Laurel and Hardy style 'Custard Pie Fight' has been changed to Saturday 21 March, 12:30 (arrive from 11:30, warm-up 12:15) - just after our early morning 'Jeely Jar' double bill at the Hippodrome of Behind the Screen starring Charlie Chaplin and the hilarious Sherlock Jr. with Buster Keaton.
So why not make a day of it... watch classic silent comedy, join in our 'custard pie fight' and then head along to Bo'ness Library and make a movie poster to take home.
Venue: Glebe Park (Bo'ness Town Hall), Stewart Avenue, Bo'ness, EH51 9NJ
In celebration of our 10th year, we’re hosting a 'Custard' Pie Fight open to all. Custard pie fights are a staple of silent film comedy, from Laurel & Hardy to Charlie Chaplin, and legend has it that Keystone Studios used so many pies that they had their own bakery. Now it’s your chance to have a go. Our Custard Pie Fight will use Shaving Foam and paper plates to make the ‘pies’.
