Harrogate Film Society is pleased to announce our final film in Season 1 of our Music Legends Series. This event will take place at Bilton Club (previously known as Bilton Working Men's Club). This community venue has a fantastic function room with it's own bar, a self-contained PA system and disabled access.

Films will be projected onto a screen based on the stage and we are pleased to bring you another brilliant film.

Jazz on a Summer's Day - the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival | July 19 | 7pm | Director : D A Pennebaker | 1959 | U | 90 + Minutes | Documentary | Venue - Bilton Club on Skipton Road

Set at the Newport jazz festival in 1958, this documentary mixes images of water and the town with performers and audience. The film progresses from day to night and from improvisational music to Gospel. It's a concert film that suggests peace and leisure, jazz at a particular time and place.

Louis Armstrong, Dinah Washington, Chuck Berry, Mahalia Jackson, Thelonious Monk, Big Maybelle, what's not to like?

Each movie will be introduced by Harrogate author and broadcaster, Derek Shelmerdine. He will set the scene for the film and provide insight into the background. Derek is the author of Rock'n'Roll Unravelled, which tells the story of rock'n'roll from its roots to late 70's punk.

Book your tickets on our website, at any of our events or on the door.
