Prestatyn prepares for its appointment with Doctor Who


Suzanne Jordan

CINEMAGOERS will be picking up knitting needles rather than sonic screwdrivers in preparation for a special showing of Doctor Who.

Staff and volunteers at the Scala Cinema in Prestatyn have launched a “big knit” project to make a Doctor Who scarf prior to the premiere of the first episode which will see Peter Capaldi's take reign as the Time Lord on Saturday, August 23.

Customers will be able to “knit a bit” while they are having a coffee by registering at the Scala.

Chris Bond, general manager of the Scala, said: “When we get these special events we want them to be special nights and for people to have lots of fun.

“We like to get the community involved, encourage people to dress up and if possible raise money for a local charity. I hope that knitters young and old will join in and help us raise money for St. Kentigens.

“I will also be contacting the company involved in the screening to see if they have any Doctor Who items which can be auctioned off.”

Customers are being asked to donate any unwanted wool and needles or knit pieces of the scarf at home.

Each piece of the scarf has 35 stitches and has plain knitting with colour changes every six inches.

The finished scarves will be sold and raffled on the night with the proceeds being donated to St Kentigens.

All knitting needs to be returned by Wednesday, August 20 to the Scala.
