David Lean's 1962 masterpiece Lawrence Of Arabia needs no introduction from us, so we thought we'd just show you its new trailer instead. The promo has been put together for the restored, remastered, 227-minute director's cut that's back on the big screen to celebrate the film's 50th anniversary.


What's an Orange-Utan?

Bridgend Feastival
A visit to FEASTIVAL on Friday 28th & Saturday 29th September 10am to 5pm must be in your families' diary, if only to see the Orange-utan and the Cauliflower Forest.
While some food festivals provide plenty of opportunities to sample different foods, Feastival does this and lots more.
Feastival this year celebrates 60 years of food and gives loads of foodie stuff activities for children to interact with, they can eat it, make it, love it, laugh at it. Activities include leak lobbing, Spaghetti Bridge building and wrapping an egg in protective packaging for a 10 metre drop; the egg that survives wins a prize for its packager, Food of course.
When you visit Bridgend town centre this autumn you can meet with over 60 food traders on the streets, many providing tasters and produce for you to buy at the Feastival.  Get here early as we would not want you to miss out on some great tasting food. See Simon Wright compere a cookery demonstration for BBC Radio Wales live show on Saturday.
Celebrity chefs display their skills in the demonstration areas and this year is no exception with chefs from Loch Fynne showcasing fish preparation and Chef Anand George, Purple Poppadam his Nouvelle Indian cuisine. Check out the website for up to date news on who else will be demonstrating their talents this year. Local restaurants will be offering food for you to try from different eras.
Each year Feastival entertains the visitor with art work with a difference and this year is no exception. A Cauliflower forest will grow with your help in Bridgend town centre - is this true? Yes come and visit FEASTIVAL on this weekend and help to create Bridgend's very first cauliflower forest, we are calling all young and old to participate! Make history and help create Bridgend's' 1st ever Cauliflower forest! 
Come and see our Orange - utan, what's an Orange-utan I hear you ask.....well come and visit FEASTIVAL to see a 6ft orang-utan hanging from the trees! Be part of the fun and help us make this orang-utan family bigger by creating more orang -utans yourself. Hope you like oranges!!!
The streets of the town come alive from Punch and Judy shows for the younger children, "whose got my sausages" to seeing a bunch of grapes on stilts, perhaps if you are lucky you will get to taste some as well, you also need to watch out for the hula hooping carrot around the next corner and animals performing acrobatics up high, try this out for yourself if you dare.
Music will be everywhere to suit all ages so come along and bring all the family for a fun day out with food.
So what are you waiting for if you like food and a great day out, go to our website www.bridgendfeastival.com and sign up for regular updates on all that is happening. And make sure it is in your diary….
