Diss Film Society at The Park Hotel is showing Babette's Feast (PG) on Monday at 8pm as part of the town's Taste of Diss festival.

The film is a heart warming story of food and love. In an austere religious community in 1870s Denmark, a French refugee arrives at the household of two spinster sisters and their father, and becomes their housekeeper and cook. After the death of their father, she prepares a meal in his memory - not just a meal but a gastronomic feast which is revelatory and life changing for the sisters and the community.

Admission £4; members £3; students £2.
