30th June 2019 – 3rd July 2019

Be transported back to the 90s.

It’s summer 1994, and it’s hot in Edlington. The small South Yorkshire town sizzles with adolescent love and angst. Shane and Dave are shoplifting sweets. Maurice and Cassie are in love, kissing in the reeds. Nerdy Malcolm is wishing Cassie was in love with him, and Trevor is watching the Decoy Ponds, waiting for a legendary carp called Nessie to emerge…

Edlington is a closely-knit community. It’s small and self-contained. When Trevor leads his friends to the water’s edge, together they experience an unforgettable moment, witnessing the legend that captured their imaginations.

Join us at our ‘Pay What You Decide‘ fundraiser screening, raising funds for the OUR DIGITAL FUTURE project  on Monday 1st July, as we welcome the director Bill Buckhurst for a Q&A.
