Abba-tastic fun with Pudsey Bear
Abba in the '70s
Dress as the legendary Abba to raise funds for Pudsey

This year the Evening Programme goes back to the '70s with Duncan Warren for Children in Need.

Duncan's show will be coming live from the Phoenix Cinema in Falmouth. A special screening of two films have been secured with all the proceeds going to CIN.

Mamma Mia is one of the featured movies on the night and Duncan hopes everyone attending will wear their brightest '70s gear.

It takes place on Friday 20 November.

There will be two films on the silver screen on BBC Children in Need night in Falmouth.

'Radio Wonderful' this was made back in 1974 in association with the BBC and looks back at the re-organisation of the BBC's domestic radio services with the introduction of Radio 1,2,3 & 4, and the first of the BBC local radio stations.

There are only two copies of this film left in the world, and we are very privileged that the owners have agreed to release one for this special evening.

The film features many household names, Tony Blackburn, Jimmy Saville, Johnnie Walker, and some great broadcasters who are no longer with us like John Peel and Alan 'Fluff' Freeman. The film runs for just 30 minutes, and without doubt it will be the only time you will ever be able to watch it in a cinema.

The main attraction of the evening is 'Mama Mia!' This film was an enormous success when first released last year.

It has now been withdrawn from the cinema so this again will be a one-off showing and most likely to be the last time you will catch it on the big screen. It's a great chance to join in with a sing-song and Duncan Warren wants to encourage people to come along dressed as 'Abba'.

Ticket prices: Adults £6.00 Children/Seniors £4.50 These can be purchased by phone on 01326 313072 from 11.00am - 10.00pm Thursday to Sunday, and from Monday to Wednesday 4.00pm - 10.00pm. A 50p booking fee is applied to all telephone bookings.

Tickets can also be purchased direct from the Phoenix Cinema, and advanced bookings or ticket purchase is advised as there is a limit to how many the cinema can hold. 'Radio Wonderful' will be the first of the two films to be shown starting at 7.30pm.

Duncan Warren's radio programme will be live at the cinema from 7.00pm - 10.00pm with guests dropping in throughout the evening. Duncan and his assistant Joy Robinson also encourage anyone who has raised money throughout the day or during the evening to come along and hand it in live on-air.

The annual Trelawney Challenge will also feature within the programme.

Thank you for the fashion
