Norwich resident Nigel Herwin, a lecturer in film studies, will act as guide through an informal study of Hitchcock's techniques.

Included on the day will be screenings of two classic movies directed by the Master of Suspense.

Mr Herwin said: 'Alfred Hitchcock is one of the greatest directors in movie history with an unrivalled ability to manipulate audiences through his fascination with themes of murder, guilt and obsession. A deeper look at his techniques can only enhance our enjoyment.'

Shadow of a Doubt (1943) will be shown at 2pm with Rear Window (1954) following at 7pm.

The Hitchcock day school is on Saturday, April 27 from 11am to 1.15pm and 3.30pm to 5pm. Tickets £20 for school and both screenings, or £8 per individual screening. Box-office 01263 822 347, www.sheringhamlittletheatre.com
