'Meat pie' and murder maybe?

Okay, then.

With a heady combination of ale, cinema, pies and blades (not in that order), Colmore Business District's Food Festival fringe season continues. In what critics have been calling "a lively, varied programme of happy", okay — that was us — CBID is keeping the acronyms rolling with a visit to the OJS for its next (and final) stop. Get one of Mrs Lovett's famous "meat" pies, a taster of ale, and a wet shave care of those loveable rogues at The Barber House (first come, first served for the blade people). Then take in a screening of — you may just have guessed — Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Taking place on June 8, tickets are £12. Food will be served from 6.30pm, with shaves happening between ales. The movie starts at 7.30pm.
