Echoes of the North at Winter Gardens Theatre, Morecambe, 6 November 2022, from £16.76 - Book now
Yorkshire Silent Film Festival present the world premiere of a brand new silent film at Morecambe’s historic Winter Gardens theatre this November. Created in partnership with Yorkshire Film Archive, North West Film Archive, North East Film Archive, and London’s Archive Film Agency, with an original brass score composed by Neil Brand, Echoes of the North is comprised of more than a hundred fragments of archive film, designed to take audiences on a trip through Northern life in the early 20th century.
Historic and evocative, the rarely seen footage shows a multifaceted North, its industries and rural life, its wartimes and festivals, its holidays, family excursions and huge, city-wide occasions. The score, meanwhile, is the first ever all-brass soundtrack for a feature film and will be performed live by one of the world’s finest brass bands, West Yorkshire’s Brighouse and Rastrick Band, winners of the 2022 British Open Brass Band Championship, with orchestral conductor Ben Palmer.
