This biographical musical film recounts the early life and career of one of Britain's most talented singer-songwriters. Young Reginald Dwight is raised by an unaffectionate mother but loving grandmother. His father shows little interest in the boy or his talent.
Reginald takes piano lessons and gains a place at the Royal Academy of Music. He starts to play in pubs, joins a band and begins to write his own songs and, in order to become a famous artist, changes his name to Elton John. Over time he is introduced to lyricist Bernie Taupin, with whom he forms a successful songwriting partnership, and then meets John Reid, a music manager, whose influence casts a shadow over Elton's private life.
Taron Egerton gives a brilliant performance as Elton John and the well-known catalogue of songs helps tell the story.
Also stars: Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard and Gemma Jones.
Doors open at 7.00pm; show starts at 7.30pm in the village hall. Refreshments are on sale. Tickets £7 are available at the door.
