Live from Worktown – Spring and Port Wine 24 November 2017

Bill Naughton’s hit film of 1970 starring James Mason, Diana Coupland, Susan George and Hannah Gordon. Directed by Peter Hammond. The film’s special significance for Bolton is that all the location shots were filmed in the town, much of which is recognisable today. The film will be introduced by Dr Nicola Shaw (University of Bolton) who will put it into the context of the times and the town as it was.

The film will be accompanied by:
• an exhibition of Bill Naughton’s life in Bolton, which features comment about the location filming and commentary from people who were there at the time.
• a DVD of Bill Naughton’s Bolton.
• All those purchasing a ticket will receive a complimentary copy of ‘Bill Naughton’s Bolton Life’, a brand new biography by Dave Burnham (2017)
• People attending will also have the chance to sample a beer specially brewed for the occasion: ‘Spring and Port Ale’!

All this for an entrance fee of £10!

Doors open at 6.30pm for 7.30pm showing.
