Martin Parr

Christmas movieNight: Turkey and Tinsel

19th November, 2014

In a few weeks we’ll be throwing open our studio doors to host a festive movieNight screening of Martin Parr’s ‘Turkey and Tinsel'.

The documentary tells the story of JR Holyhead Travel - a family-run coach company located in the Black Country that has been in business for 25 years. They offer ‘Turkey and Tinsel’ holidays as a way of driving business during the usually quiet pre-Christmas period.

The film sees Martin, the much loved photographer and filmmaker known for capturing the social classes of England, film a group of charming Black Country pensioners on their five-day Christmas break to the Midland Hotel in Weston-super-Mare.

It’s a warm and comical documentary which shows a previously unseen side of the festive season. We can’t wait to wrap ourselves in fairy lights and down mulled wine while we watch it.

It will be our last movieNight of the year and is an invitation only event. However, we will be giving away a set of tickets via our Twitter in the next week or so. Keep your eyes peeled on our feed.

We’ve loved hosting our various movieNight events in 2014 and have a great programme of inspiring documentaries and films lined up for 2015. Big up everyone who came to the events this year and made them such a success.
