Return of Silent Night

We usually don’t condone the use of the C-word in October, but we’re going to make an exception just this once:

Silent Night is back for Christmas 2017, and we’re taking it on tour to a cathedral near you…

We’re delighted to welcome back the marvellous John Sweeney who will be accompanying Buster Keaton’s spectacular The Cameraman on piano. You can find dates/venues etc. listed below, and follow the links to buy tickets.

Tickets are £9/7 and £1 goes directly to the homeless charities: Sifa Fireside (Birmingham), Emmaus (Coventry), & Wolverhampton Homeless Outreach (Wolverhampton).

There’ll be some appropriately festive shorts before the feature, and seasonal refreshments available to purchase.

The Cameraman (Wolverhampton) – 20th December – St John’s Church
The Cameraman (Birmingham) – 21st December – St Philip’s Cathedral
The Cameraman (Coventry) – 22nd December – Coventry Cathedral
