The NeverEnding Story

The NeverEnding Story at Bristol Museum

Sunday 29th December | Doors: 18:45 | Film Start: 19:10 | Approx End: 20:45

Head to Bristol Museum   for a special screening of The NeverEnding Story. To celebrate their latest exhibition, Magic, we are hosting an evening of fantastical films about strange and distant lands. Before the film, meet our live performers, who always have a few tricks up their sleeves, then take your seats in the Museum’s incredible rear hall for a mystical cinema experience. If you do find the weird and wonderful particularly bewitching, why not explore this magical exhibition after hours too?
