LSS: Andrew Graves: Welcome to the Cheap Seats

Description: "Welcome to the Cheap Seats: Silver Screen Portrayals of the British Working Class"

Andrew Graves

An illustrated author talk about working class cinema and his accompanying book on the subject "Welcome to the Cheap Seats"

Andrew Graves explores the British New Wave kitchen sink dramas of the 1950s and 60s before moving on to more culturally diverse and female-orientated films in this gritty sub-genre, which often clashed with controversy, censorship and the establishment. Andrew talks about his book and will include clips from films like Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Kes, Quadrophenia, A Taste of Honey and This is England.

Andrew has run courses on film at Broadway and has published three collections of poems in his other (but related) life as a touring performance poet. He lives in Nottingham, which is significantly represented in this book and presentation.

All welcome - admission free.

Secular Hall is open from 6pm-9pm on most Sunday evenings.

We collect food and toiletry items for asylum seekers ‚Äď please try to donate if you are able.
