The Shape of You

Ever wondered why you can never find a great fitting garment or why some people always look feminine, curvy or well dressed where other people struggle to find clothes and styles that suit them?

Heather and Pat can help you find out what works for your shape, whether you are an hourglass, curvy hourglass, pear shape, apple or athletic build.

With years of experience fitting high street clothing, developing shapes with some of the big names on the high street (New Look, Evans, Morgan etc), Heather and Pat from Sew New Ltd in Northallerton can help.

Bring your favourite outfits, learn what suits you, what to avoid and start on your journey to increased confidence in dressing for "The Shape of You" at Thirsk Conservative Club on Tue 29 Oct at 7pm.

Tickets are now available in Thirsk Tourist Information and at the Conservative Club, £6 each.

Ritz Cinema, Thirsk, Fri 11 Oct to Thu 17 Oct

It: Chaper Two (15). We all think that we grow up and leave childhood behind us, but sometimes things we thought we had left behind come back - in this case literally - to haunt us.

Twenty seven years ago, the kids in the Loser's Club fought and defeated a supernatural threat in the same of a demonic clown called Pennywise, that attacked their sleepy Maine home town.

Now, the fiend is back, and people have again started disappearing! The original members come together to fight the threat!

Starring Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy and Bill Hader.

7.30pm daily. £6, and £5 for Monday & over 60s (cash only, no cards).
