Showcomotion Opening Gala Film Announced!

From up on Poppy Hill

Join Showco on Friday 12 July with a special preview of From up on Poppy Hill, the new film from the renowned Japanese animators, Studio Ghibli, due to be released in the UK in August. It’s a beautifully animated coming-of-age love story set in 1963 as Japan reinvented itself after the devastation of World War Two.

In true Showco tradition, the Opening Gala will start the festival off with a bang, with a fancy dress competition and very special guests, including the Lord Mayor of Sheffield. Last year the Showroom’s Chefs rustled up a feast worthy of Willy Wonka with homemade sweets and ice cream for everyone who attended the Opening Gala. This year plans are afoot for an even more spectacular array of treats, all homemade in the Showroom kitchen.

Tickets for the Showco Opening Gala screening of ‘From up on Poppy Hill’, along with the rest of the festival programme, will be on sale from the end of May.
