Off Beat Presents: A Screening Of ‘Here We Come A-Wassailing’
January 9 @ 8:00 pm GMT£5
Following on from our sold-out film screening of Legend of the Witches on Halloween, join us at Walthamstow Trades Hall for the first Off Beat film of the new year. This time, we will be seeing in 2023 with a special New Year screening of the BBC Bristol Documentary Here We Come A-Wassailing (1977, 50mins). This film takes us around Britain and Ireland exploring winter traditions and rites in their full, eccentric and weird ways. It’s a brilliant snapshot of the very British New Years tradition of wassailing with traditional singing and music throughout as well as original soundtrack to the film written by The Albion Band.
We will also be screening a medley of films showcasing another quintessentially British way of seeing in the New Year: Illegal raves. Neither are to be missed!
There’s Yard Sale Pizza, cheap beer, amazing films and we’re going to be playing great music all night. What’s not to like?
The film starts at 8pm but feel free to come down early to say hi, grab a table and get a drink.
Tickets are £5 (£3.50 for members) on the door but make sure to RSVP through eventbrite.
