PADoK Movie Night
“What an absolutely brilliant evening”
Last Friday night Old Hall was shaking with the sound of fighter jets and 80’s music at the most recent PADoK event.
Almost without exception everybody came dressed to impress in “Top Gun” themed clothing. After a quick welcome drink we settled down to the first half of the movie, but this wasn’t a normal movie night everybody sang along to “That loving feeling” and whooped a cheered to appropriate (and inappropriate) moments in the film. We also had “Top Gun” related tasks and quizzes to complete. Half way through, at a very “suitable” moment the movie was paused as we enjoyed a wonderful American diner themed supper provided by our fabulous chef. Then we all sat down for the second half of the movie, but this time we were tasked with creating our own fighter pilot helmets (from swim hats!) and model fighter jets, which were judged on style and how far they could fly! The film was concluded with cheers and a standing ovation as Tom Cruise and his team defeated the evil Russians.
But the evening didn’t end there, everybody danced into the small hours to all the best 80’s music hits expertly put together by DJ Mr Garrood.
This was another outstanding PADoK event and I am very grateful to PADoK reps Mrs Leslie and Mrs Weatherby for all their hard work to make such a brilliant and fun evening.
