The Laidley Worm of Spindleston Heugh

World Première of The Laidley Worm of Spindleston Heugh

Sunday April 29th, Exeter Picturehouse, 11.00am

This magnificent, multi-layered Northumbrian tale tells the story of a princess who is turned into a dragon. The forty minute film by Chagford Filmmaking Group features local children, a giant toad, some scary little imps and a very wicked stepmother. Dozens of volunteers worked alongside industry professionals to create this film of one of our nation’s most compelling fairytales.

Adults £7.00, children £5.00. (suitable for age 6 and above)

Male extras are required to be in the latest film being made by  the Chagford Filmmaking Group.

The men will be transformed into Knights (armour will be provided), and filming will take place in the Arthur’s Hall, Cornwall, the only intact building in the world dedicated to Arthurian Legend.

Rehearsal will take place on Sunday, April 25, 2-5pm in Jubilee Hall, Chagford, Devon and the actual filming will take place on Sunday, May 30, 8am – 8pm in Arthur’s Hall, Tintagel.

If you’d like to take part, email Elizabeth-Jane Baldry on info@fairytalefilms.co.uk

Ticket sales for the premiere of Peerifool are now available online from the Fairytale Films website.

The film is a fabulous feminist tale collected in the nineteenth century up in the wild Orkney Islands.  The creators say, “This could be the first time EVER in the history of cinema that Scottish porridge fairies have been portrayed on the big screen”.

Elizabeth Jane Baldry says, “Our fabulous, darling, talented volunteers include an Oscar winner and a BAFTA winner working alongside all the kids and mums and dads and grandparents harnessing the collective creativity of a Dartmoor village. The warmth and generosity is utterly heart warming. So many people care about what we are doing here in the Chagford Filmmaking Group. Thank you to all of you who took part in the adventure”.
