What about the ones who aren't FROM Barnsley? What memories will they have there?

Hi Phil I do not want to say too much about the film, but wherever you are from I feel you will enjoy seeing this, as it is more or less a street scene from 1959 - and it could in fact be any city in the UK. If you would like to join us, you would be more than welcome - however there are only 6 tickets left so you would need to book ASAP...... Kind regards. Kathy
