Newquay sees red on Thursday evening – carpet that is!
You might be forgiven for thinking you’re seeing double in Newquay tomorrow evening (Thursday 14th March) – even before you hit the pub! That’s because the Fisherman’s Friends are going to be in town for the UK’s only sneak preview screening of Fisherman’s Friends – The Movie, at Newquay’s Lighthouse cinema – both sets of Fisherman’s Friends, that is – band and cast members of the film!

The red carpet will be rolled out for Fisherman's Friends - The Movie for 6.15pm as cast members Danny Mays, Dave Johns, Sam Swainsbury, Christian Brassington, Vahid Gold and little Meadow Nobryga join the real Fisherman’s Friends and guests at the special showing of the movie, followed by a live gig from the band at the Central Inn next door, all sponsored by Tribute Cornish Pale Ale, the Official Beer of the Movie.

The film goes on general release on Friday 15th March but, if you want to chase autographs or catch up with the stars at the red carpet event, you know where to be at 6.15pm on Thursday.

Fisherman’s Friends – the Movie, is a moving tale of camaraderie, sticking together through thick and thin and everything Cornwall, and Port Isaac’s favourite sons are hitting new heights thanks to this big screen adaptation of their dramatic rise to fame. Based around their early years, their lifelong friendship and shared experiences, the film was shot in and around the North Cornwall village and, as you’d expect, spends a lot of time in the Buoy Band’s favourite haunt, , The Golden Lion pub.

The screenplay was written by Nick Moorcroft and Meg Leonard, the team behind the recent UK comedy success Finding Your Feet, so should feature a lot of belly laughs and a lot of feel good.

Our Marketing and Communications Director Jeremy Mitchell said, “This is a film that has been brewing for some time. We’ve been long term partners of the Friends and they truly deserve this kind of spotlight, having done so much for local charities and Cornwall over the years. Their feet are always firmly rooted in the ground around them so we’re sure they won’t let any of this extra attention go to their heads but, as always, we raise a glass in Tribute to them and look forward to raising a few with them to celebrate the film’s release.”

Fisherman’s Friends is produced by James Spring for Fred Films, and Nick Moorcroft and Meg Leonard for Powder Keg Pictures. The film is released in cinemas nationwide by Entertainment Film Distributors on 15th March 2019

Get set for an evening of laughter, tears, and more laughter as the tale unfolds!
