TBF Breakfast, 6th August – Paul Hawthorne, Paignton Picture House

August 6 @ 8:30 am - 9:00 am


We are delighted to welcome Paul Hawthorne from Paignton Picture House as our main speaker at the next TBF event on Tues 6th August, 8-9.30am in the Forum at the Riviera International Centre.

Paignton Picture House was built in 1914. Celebrated for its unique architectural features, it thrilled audiences across Torbay and beyond for many years. World-renowned author Agatha Christie regularly watched films from her favourite seat in the magnificent balcony. Sadly the cinema closed in 1999 and fell into disrepair. Ambitious works are now underway to restore and redevelop the Grade II listed building to create a vibrant community cultural hub.

We are also delighted to welcome John Tomkins for our 5 minute community slot. Since its inception in 2015, John has spearheaded the English Riviera Film Festival with a mission to celebrate and promote film making in the South West. It has become a great showcase for the area featuring over 200 films from 22 countries across the world.

Kindly sponsored by Gold, South Devon College and Silver, Charles Stanley – we really appreciate your support.

£13.50 for breakfast and networking.
