On BBC1 TV, we saw the Queen having tea with Paddington Bear. I knew that Paddington kept a stash of marmalade sandwiches under his hat but was surprised when the Queen got marmalade sandwiches out of her handbag. Since then, crochet of The Queen and Paddington and corgi has appeared on the post box on Abingdon Market Place.
Michael emailed me a picture of Queen Victoria with a hat.
The Mother and Child statue in Abingdon also has a hat.
Do the hats hide marmalade sandwiches, or do they have another purpose?
The Regal Evesham together with the Friends of Abingdon will be showing films in the Unicorn Theatre from November.
The plan is to show new release films – probably starting with Paddington 2 and then the new Murder on the Orient Express and the new Star Wars. After Christmas there are some new British films coming out and they also hope to show the occasional classic film and some special events.
This is a trial cinema for a few months over the winter. The operators are keen to establish a permanent base in Abingdon but that won’t be long term in the Unicorn.
This evening saw the start of the new season of films with the ABCD Film Society in Abingdon who show their films at the Abbey Centre on Audlett Drive. Their first film was Arrival.
