The Latest News From Around Capel

Flix In The Stix Capel’s Cinematic Experience

This month’s film is Mr. Turner, which is based on Mike Leigh’s biography of the artist J.M.W Turner, who is played by Timothy Spall. Turner lived from 1775-1851 and was a member of the Royal Academy of Arts. A lot of the film was shot at Petworth House, which is relatively local for us, where Turner had a permanent studio. The third Lord Ergemont was one of Turner’s greatest patrons and the house was used as one of the key locations in the film. Showing in the Capel Memorial Hall on Tuesday 3rd March. Doors open at 7:30pm for 8pm start. Refreshments available. Everyone welcome. ¬£4 on the door.
