Following their recent LIVE performance at The Regal, this month Fisherman's Friends will be returning to our venue- this time on the Big Screen!
Fisherman's Friends film is inspired by the story of 8-piece Cornish singing group Fisherman’s Friends who signed a major record deal in 2010 and their album “Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends” went Gold as they became the first traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album.
A fast-living, cynical London music executive (Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy). He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families (including Tuppence Middleton) who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he’s drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he’s forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.
Starring Daniel Mays, James Purefoy, Tuppence Middleton, David Hayman, Dave Johns, and Noel Clarke, FISHERMAN’S FRIENDS was shot on location in Cornwall and comes from director Chris Foggin with a screenplay by Nick Moorcroft , Meg Leonard and Piers Ashworth.
