Fisherman's Friends

Director: Chris Foggin


Based on the true story of an a cappella band of fishermen who went from performing in Port Isaac, Cornwall to the Royal Albert Hall. A cynical London music executive heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he’s challenged by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen. He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ as he struggles to gain the respect and enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he’s drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he’s forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.

Screenings on Tue 16 Apr 8pm & Thu 18 Apr 2pm will have descriptive subtitles.
