Versatile singer/organist, John Shuttleworth decides to test the popular theory - that the further north you travel, the friendlier people will be - by venturing to Britain's most northerly spot, the Shetland Isles. Foiled by failing light, let down by a flat car battery, and buffeted by the constant wind, John doggedly pursues his quest; asking everyone he meets the all-important question; "Is it nice up North?" Filmed by internationally renowned photographer, Martin Parr, ‘Brilliant observer of middle England’ (Daily Telegraph) and co-starring Shetland tour guide, Elma Johnson, as herself, "It's Nice Up North" is a hilarious spoof documentary; a glorious mix of spurious actuality (caught by Parr's ever-roving camera), and complete nonsense from the mouth of John Shuttleworth. Rated U BREAKING NEWS! Graham Fellows, creator of John Shuttleworth will now be joining us for a question and answer session after the film! PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT HAS NOW SOLD OUT!
