Fisherman's Friends (2019)

Certificate: 12A

Movie Length: 1hr 52m

Join us for a unique evening of entertainment and watch the band sing live before the screening of the 2019 blockbuster which tells their unique story.

Movie Description

Ten fisherman from Cornwall are signed by Universal Records and achieve a top ten hit with their debut album of Sea Shanties.

A fast living, cynical London music executive (Daniel Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he's pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy). He becomes the ultimate "fish out of water" as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families (including Tuppence Middleton) who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he's drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he's forced to reevaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.



On site we will have locally sourced street food. Classic popping corn to keep you in the movie spirit. Craft ales alongside a range of non-alcoholic options. To ensure all you have bases are covered.

(n.b. Please bring ID for alcohol service, the bar will be operating a Challenge 25 i.e. if you are fortunate enough to look under 25 you will be asked to present your ID)


Live music playing into your cars upon arrival for the perfect sundowner session. A tombola raffle with some top quality prize giveaways on the night.



The movie audio will be broadcasted on radio 87.9FM. PLEASE ensure you have a functioning car radio, and we also recommend guests bring a back up radio in case of any issues with their car stereo.
