KesMisty Moon presents a rare chance to see Ken Loach’s seminal classic film Kes (1969) and meet Billy Casper himself.

Based on the book A Kestrel for a Knave by Barry Hines and set in South Yorkshire, Kes was originally released in 1969 and tells the tale of young Billy Casper and his beloved kestrel. With memorable performances from David Bradley, Colin Welland and Brian Glover, it is often cited as one of the greatest British films ever made.

The film will be shown in its entirety from an original 35mm release print, followed by a Q&A with its leading man, David Bradley. There will also be an opportunity to meet David after the show and to purchase autographs.

“It’s like it gives you some energy… we all need to take the jesses off now and again and fly free.” Jarvis Cocker on why Kes is his favourite film.

Doors open at 14.00, for a 15.00 start. Q&A starts at 17.30.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.


Tickets: £8 film only, £20 Q&A only, £25 film and Q&A.
