—————————————————————————————–

A true feel-good movie
A fast-living, cynical London music executive heads to a remote Cornish village for a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss into trying to sign up a group of shanty-singing fishermen.

He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he’s drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he’s forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and question what success really means.

Fisherman’s Friends will make you laugh, smile, and believe that anybody can have their 15 minutes of fame.

Masterpiece of wit & political passion
Actor Neil Gore brings this humorous and absorbing book to life in his one-man magic lantern show. Based on the 1914 novel by Robert Tressell, it’s story is set in the building trades of Edwardian England where painters and decorators struggle to maintain themselves and their families, poverty and the constant fear of unemployment notwithstanding, while renovating a large townhouse for the local mayor.

With projected animation, conjuring tricks, live music and song, there’s something for all the family here, not least the chance to become acquainted with this timeless story of socialism and political awakening.
