Dur: 15:51, Cert: 12A
“Fragments Of A Dream attempts to show the reality of a once thriving seaside town, now a shadow of its former self. That being said, Blackpool is still home to us, so we tried to create a movie that showed the positivity and bizarre charm of the town, the light in the darkness so to speak. We wanted to give an accurate portrayal of our home town, looking at both the good and bad, and think we managed to achieve that with this short film.
We had Bobby’s Grandfather narrate the movie, to give the feature a voice of the ‘better days’ of the town – having the voice of yesterday describing today’s Blackpool gives the film an extra layer of nostalgia for the town remembered so fondly by older generations.”
Afterwards members of the blanket will be taking on our main stage with an extra special short acoustic set.
You will also have the chance to see an exhibition of original album artwork and sample some great vegan food (included in ticket price).
We’re pleased to announce that Gavin Wrigley of the European Bartender School will be at the event creating some amazing exclusive cocktails especially for the occasion. We will be operating a cash bar with non-alcoholic alternatives.
