Under Heaton Fields

A 30 minute film by Peter Dillon and Tessa Green was made over the course of the project with documentary footage of the community project and storytelling acting out the detail of the disaster of 1815, underpinned by Heaton resident Richard Scott’s music with Heaton Voices & Appletwig Songbook.

The premiere film night featured a number of films made in the project staged in St Teresa’s Hall, Heaton Road. (Cumberland Arms provided a real ale bar)
Many of the audience came to see themselves in the films…….
