I can't recall if this has been mentioned previously but an independent film maker has made a quite wonderful film about the life of George Butterworth. It had its first northern screening in Thirsk yesterday and I was lucky enough to be able to get to see it. Incredibly moving - I adore his orchestral music and in the context of the film it was even more engaging. There was a lot of detail about his folk song collecting and morris dancing activities. The website has screening details - I do urge you to try to get to see it!

Jack - they are hoping to bring it to Scotland - just really needs a venue who will take a chance on it. There was a decent turnout at Thirsk though chatting to the people who run the place afterwards it looked marginal whether it had worked out for them. It is a magnificent film so I hope you do get to see it. The sound at Thirsk for such a small community run theatre was tremendous and it was blissful having Banks of Green Willow and his other orchestral works wash over us

Seeing the film reminded me of a very spooky incident just after we moved to York. I was looking for my new doctor's surgery when I came across a Blue Plaque marking the location of Butterworth's York home when he was a child. I hadn't known that he had lived here. The spooky bit was when I realised the date and time when I was standing there looking at it. It was 11am on 11 November!

Maybe Edinburgh Folk Club could take it on? I think their usual venue seats about 80, would that be enough? Otherwise could they do it at the Cameo or Filmhouse?

One would have thought that any multiplex which has a small cinema and is prepared to give it suitable publicity in advance would be able to screen this for one day. Or is it all a closed shop?

Perhaps we should lobby Towersey Festival for it next year.
After all they are screening "Fishermens Friends" this year.

Or even Sidmouth. They put on "the Way of the Morris" and that was very well received.

I think I will suggest it to both.

A wonderful little cinema. I will be there. I am often.

Owned by a guy who always wanted to run a cinema. Literally a one man show. Though he has deputies (maybe a business partner). Even the ticket machine is vintage!

The list is hand-picked to include screens accessible from all regions of the UK, including local cinemas near the places where Butterworth lived, worked, had his music performed and collected folk songs. Wherever possible the director and contributors to the film will attend in order to participate in post-screening discussions.

It would be nice if they made the film available for digital rental. I'd like to see it here in SW Florida and I ain't getting any younger.   There's not much chance of it being shown in a theater in these parts where anything even slightly esoteric never seems to arrive though I suppose I could lobby the public library for a screening.

Whitby pulling their fingers out and putting on something that they haven't repeated ad-infinitum already?

I was seriously considering cancelling my B&B booking considering the way the festival has been declining but as I wasted my London ticet for the film sitting in A&E I might give it the benefit of one more year after all.
