Watch an iconic Nottingham film in an iconic industrial setting!

Nottingham Industrial Museum have partnered up with an iconic industrial venue as part of their annual Raleigh Rally. Head on down to The Garage in Chilwell (the home of Bartons Buses) for an exclusive viewing of the Nottingham classic film Saturday Night and Sunday Morning.

Starring the late Albert Finney, and written by Nottingham-born Alan Sillitoe, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning is revered as one of the most iconic 'Kitchen Sink Dramas' produced in Britain. It's also a beautiful snapshot into Nottingham's industrial heritage, making it a must-see for history buffs.

The film follows the life of Arthur Seaton, who spends his days working in the Nottingham-based Raleigh factory. But his weekends are made up of drinking and partying as he battles to break free from the drudgery of his monotonous life. And all while carrying on a complicated affair with a married woman. Finney was awarded a BAFTA for his performance in the film, one of the first of many accolades in his highly successful career.

Nottingham Industrial Museum and Barton Bros. have been in conversation for a while about a collaborate event celebrating their industrial heritage. However, after hearing of the sad passing of Albert Finney who played the lead role, they decided to stage the event as a celebration of some of his most beloved work. The Garage is the perfect setting to view this industrial time-capsule. There will also be a number of vintage Raleigh bikes on show at The Garage for the event.

The film screening will take place at The Garage Chilwell on Saturday 27th. Tickets are available through The Garage's website. Doors open at 15:00 (with refreshments available) and the film will start at 15:30. And make sure you stay around for The Garage's monthly Street Food Smoke Up from 17:00. You can get your hands on amazing food and drink from Nottingham's finest vendors.

This event is part of Nottingham Industrial Musuem's Raleigh Rally, which takes place on the 28th April at the Nottingham Industrial Museum at Wollaton Park where you can admire rare, vintage and modern Raleigh bikes as well as explore an exhibition dedicated to Nottinghamshire's cycling heroes. Raleigh is one of the oldest (and by 1913 were the biggest) bicycle companies in the world, and played a huge role in shaping Nottingham's reputation as an industrial centre in the 20th C.
