Sun 14 Jul: "Fisherman's Friends" - ChOC Film of the Month
Cert. 12A / 112mins.
Inspired by the true story of the Fisherman’s Friends, an all-male acapella folk singing group from Port Isaac in Cornwall who in the noughties became an unexpected hit for their authentic sea shanties.
Danny (Daniel Mays) is a music executive who travels to Cornwall on a stag weekend with his mates and he’s pranked by them into offering to sign up the local sea shanty singers, led by Jim (James Purefoy), Jago (David Hayman) and Leadville (Dave Johns). Something in the music speaks to Danny’s romantic soul, and he makes it his mission to bring the Fisherman’s Friends and their music to the world.
Memorial Hall, Charlbury at 7.30pm (doors & licensed bar from 6.45pm)
Admission: Adults £5 / U15s £3.
“… this gentle, sweet-natured comedy has warmth and a certain X factor of likability, helped by big-hearted performances from a cast including Daniel Mays and Tuppence Middleton." = Peter Bradshaw / The Guardian
