It wasn’t Academy Award material, but The Rocky Horror Picture Show, based on the West-End musical The Rocky Horror Show, was released in 1975 and is one of the first cult classic films.

The Aeronaut was a popular watering hole that, unfortunately, burned down in early 2017. Thankfully, no one was hurt. But thanks to the General Manager who promised to rebuild and was good to his word, the pub was rebuilt, back up and running by late November of the same year.
Already well known for its wide variety of entertainment including circuses and cabaret shows, the Aeronaut has decided to expand its themed Saturday Bottomless Brunch by having different entertainers ever week. And for 5 of those weeks, the brunch is called When You Wish Upon A Brunch. I think you can see where I’m going with this…
