Love Hitchcock? Then I have some great news that will set your 2012 off with a bang!
On the 17th March, Fairfield concert hall in Croydon will be hosting a special evening called Hitchcock & Hollywood where you can meet Tippi Hedren, one of Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic blondes and famous for her leading role in Marnie and the movie The Birds in 1963. Tippi Hedren will be on-stage to tell tales of her time working with Hollywood’s master of suspense.
With clips from some of Hitchcock’s most famous films on the Fairfield’s big screen, Miss Hedren will discuss the background to famous Hitchcock films, such as Vertigo, Psycho, Marnie, The Man Who Knew Too Much and North By North West.
Alfred Hitchcock had a deep understanding for the importance of music in a film, famously using only strings in Psycho and no music at all in The Birds. So it seems only right that music play a huge part of the evening with the critically acclaimed New Queen’s Hall Orchestra on stage to play some of Hollywood’s greatest scores.
