The Tales of a Compulsive Poacher and Organist is being shown on the big screen at Beccles Public Hall on Sunday.
This is the second in a series of four films in the “I Remember When . . .” series.
The Beccles Public Hall team is delighted to announce the next film, Rodney Bullock, Compulsive Poacher and Organist, as part of a series of fascinating insights into lives on film in the New Year.
The “I Remember When ...” series of screenings started last Sunday and continues this Sunday, at 2pm.
Doors will open at 1.30pm.
“With the kind permission of Neil Lanham who has devised Oral Traditions of Suffolk and Bordering Counties, we are thrilled to be screening the life experiences and fascinating accounts of some wonderful old characters from a bygone era.
“Neil Lanahm has devoted his time to capturing the accounts of some wonderful old characters from Suffolk and bordering counties - folks traditions through song, tales, wisdom and cultural identity.
“What a lad that Rodney Bullock was in his heyday! He loves to retell his stories and you can’t help stepping into his world,” said Sue Bergin, events coordinator at the hall.
The film does come with a warning as it is not suited for those who are unfamiliar with the Suffolk bawdy humour!
Entry to the screenings is free, thanks to Neil. Donations to the Hall Restoration Fund are gratefully received and teas, coffees and light refreshments will be available.
The series continues on Sunday, February 1 with a screening of Lord Sainsbury’s Gardener and on Sunday, February 8 with a showing of My Life with Percherons.
