DISCOVER secrets and anecdotes from a hit film when its star and co-producer attend a special fundraiser screening.

Fisherman’s Friends followed by a Q&A session will be shown at the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis on Friday, July 12 at 7pm.

The film is based on a true story about Port Isaac's Fisherman's Friends, a group of Cornish fishermen from Port Isaac who achieve a Top 10 hit after they are signed by Universal Records.

Ian Brown—the film’s co-producer and manager of the real-life band—joins actor Dave Johns in conversation.

Roots musician Jinder, whose song is in the film, will also perform at this special fundraiser for the Marine.

The film stars an ensemble cast headed by Daniel Mays, James Purefoy and Tuppence Middleton with David Hayman, Noel Clarke, Dave Johns, Maggie Steed, Sam Swainsbury and Christian Brassington playing roles.

The plot follows a fast living, cynical London music executive who reluctantly heads to Cornwall on a colleague’s stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen. He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ struggling to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. Attempting to overcome the fishermen’s scepticism about the music business, he finds himself drawn into the community, has his integrity tested and ultimately is shown the meaning of loyalty, love and friendship.
