Grandad & The Pier with Virtual Q&A

Dir. Reuban Armstrong | 2023 | 45 mins plus Q&A

This beautiful, charming, cinematic documentary captures an ambitious project with over 130 years of history at its foundations.

On a small island in the middle of the Irish sea, a giant derelict pier juts out into the rough sea.

Closed for decades, now the pier is getting a new lease of life thanks to a defiant, social-media savvy elderly population building something for the next generation.

A wind-swept, tea-soaked, heart-warming film about community, hope and leaving a legacy beyond our years.

“It’s the people’s pier!” declares Grandad Biff. “It’s got to survive. We’re going to do it!”

The film is 45 minutes and will be followed by a virtual Q&A with director Reuben Armstrong, hosted by Pat Smith aka Action Nan.

Grandad & The Pier with Q&A

Saturday 11th November, 6.00pm

Tickets: £8.50/£7/£6.50

A £1 Poly Fund payment is added to each ticket sold.
