It took place as part of the 100 years of Cub Scouting celebrations happening throughout this year.

The Jungle Book has a special place in Cub Scout history as it was used by Robert Baden Powell to base his Scouting to younger members and launched Wolf Cubs in 1916.

Thandi Clark and Joshua Smyth, both Cub Scouts from 1st Woodford Halse, said the film was “brilliant”.

Jennie Curtis, a Scout Leader said: “This was a really good opportunity for Cub Scouts to get together and watch a film. I would like to thank Cineworld at Sixfields.”
