PETER Rabbit bounds into Glusburn next month as the village’s latest big-screen presentation.

The 2018 movie adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s famous story will be shown at the Glusburn Institute Community & Arts Centre on April 5 at 6.30pm.

It will be an Easter-themed family night with Easter fancy-dress encouraged, and a prize for the best-dressed child who goes along to the event.

Every child will receive an Easter egg when they sit down to watch the classic tale of a rebellious rabbit trying to sneak into a farmer’s vegetable garden.

The American-made Peter Rabbit features a mix of live-action humans and computer-generated animals, and stars Rose Byrne, Sam Neill, Daisy Ridley, Margot Robbie and James Corden.

It was written by Rob Lieber and director Will Gluck from the original stories by Beatrix Potter, and grossed $351 million worldwide.

Despite early concerns by critics, the film was so successful that a sequel is set to be released in February next year.

The story begins in the Lake District where Peter Rabbit, his cousin Benjamin Bunny, and Peter’s triplet where sisters Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail spend most of their days picking on Mr McGregor and stealing vegetables from his garden.

They are friends with a local woman named Bea who spends her time painting pictures of the rabbits as well as the surrounding nature.

After old Mr McGregor dies, his great-nephew Thomas comes north from London and a new feud begins between the human and the rabbit family.
