Edith Walks (Andrew Kötting UK, 2016)

In collaboration with misfits Ante, here's an evening of film and music…

Film by Andrew Kötting: Edith Walks
Kötting sets off on a journey with friends, including historian Iain Sinclair and writer Alan Moore. Starting at Waltham Abbey they make their way to St Leonards-on-Sea exploring the tales of King Harold and his secular wife Edith Swan-Neck.

"There’s something uniquely wonderful about the unfettered pagan spirit of Andrew Kötting. His film-making has an anarchic lawlessness; a refreshing alternative to pictures that are pruned and shaped to fit into a preordained structure."
The Observer

"This zero-to-no-budget piece is something like a filmed moment of street theatre or Pythonesque subversion of the English past. It is a kind of occult dress-up pilgrimage, tracing in reverse an imaginary journey…"
The Guardian

Music by Sam and the Plants
A welcome return for of Sam and the Plants or, more precisely, Sam McLoughlin (also known for N.Racker). Sam's music meanders and jerks between slumbering and abrasive, dark and playful, melodic and cinematic, stark and surreal. Music is often assembled in layers of rhythms and sounds made with improvised instruments, taking us away to places we distantly remember or most likely forgot we ever knew.

Food by Wrapture
To compliment the Kirkgate Centre bar, Shipley's Wrapture will be selling high quality falafels with a twist: beetroot falafels, pea falafels alongside the traditional falafel wrapped in tasty breads with colourful salads.
Check out their website for more info.

A bar will be open serving wines, beers, soft drinks and cake.
