Comedy, award-winning movies and the most outrageous film musical of them are all on the bill to start the year at North Walsham's Atrium arts centre.

Fans of the smash-hit Rocky Horror Show can dress up and enjoy a colourful, party night and film on Saturday February 22.

A special pre-show event will include a fancy dress contest, tuition in how to dance the Time Warp, and lots of fun.

Doors will open at 7pm for this special Atrium fundraising night and tickets at £10 will include a cocktail or soft drink, a goodie bag, and screening of the film at 8pm.

The movie stars Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Richard O'Brien and Meatloaf and is for those of 15+.

Also coming to the Atrium is a live version of the Lionel Bart musical Oliver! staged by pupils from North Walsham High School from March 11-14.

The show – based on Charles Dickens' heartbreaking tale Oliver Twist - includes some of the great show songs of the past 50 years including Consider Yourself and Food Glorious Food.
