Three children, two donkeys, one big adventure’ was the pitch to crowd-funding investors who helped get this quintessentially British film to the cinema screens.

Starring established actors Mark Addy and Tara Fitzgerald alongside rising star Molly Windsor (last seen in the TV series Cheat) it is the story of three children crossing the North York moors to find their estranged mother and avoid ‘The Social Services’.

The Yorkshire Post said Huge praise has to go to director/writer Richard Heap whose unique screenplay evokes a range of emotions from laughter to tears. This is an uplifting and atmospheric story. The film is ultimately a celebration of childhood and the importance of home and family ties.

We are thrilled that Richard Heap will be joining us to introduce the film and hold a Q&A after the screening.
