New Year's Eve Hoedown at The Farm

See in 2017 and celebrate New Year's Eve in Maidenhead - heck yeah it’s a hoedown!

Matthew Bourne’s ‘gorgeous take on the film classic’ (★★★★ The Times) comes to cinemas for the first time. Winner of two Olivier Awards, The Red Shoes is an enthralling tale of obsession, possession and one girl's dream to be the greatest dancer in the world.
