A special event in memory of long time committee member of the festival team and great film enthusiast Karen Summers, who passed away shortly after last year's Festival. Profits will go to the charity Bloodwise.  

Innocent, optimistic days, memories of the early sixties flood back in this wonderfully entertaining compilation of live footage and interviews chronicling the concerts of The Beatles, Karen's favourite group. 

 

Plus excellent short documentary of hugely popular 1970s' Huddersfield funky-reggae band who didn't get the break they deserved. Largely filmed at their reunion at the Picturedrome's 2015 Summer Ska Splash.
