To mark the re-issue of the classic film in a new digitally re-mastered format we are hosting a special event celebrating the 40th anniversary of this much-loved Lakeland adventure story, adapted from, Arthur Ransome's 1930 children's novel.

Actress Sophie Neville, who starred in the film as Titty, will introduce the screening and take part in a Q&A session during which she'll share some of the secrets and funny stories from the the making of the film in 1974.

James Arnold, curator of Kendal's Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry, will be also be showing off and talking about some items from the museum's Arthur Ransome exhibition which includes the typrewriter on which he wrote his iconic book

If you don't know the story, while on holiday with their mother in the Lake District in 1929 four children are allowed to sail over to the nearby island in their boat Swallow and set up camp for a few days. They soon realise this has been the territory of two other girls who sail the Amazon, and the scene is set for serious rivalry.

Whether you loved it when you were a child and fancy a sail down memory lane or want to introduce your children to a fantastic cineamtic adventure without CGI and laser guns, this will be a great day not to be missed!
