Quick Flicks 2018

Took place on 24th May at The Lyric Rooms, Lower Church Street, Ashby de la Zouch.

Terror in the Trenches

Maplewell Hall School students chose six historical characters who fought in the First World War and went on to achieve famous or worthy things. The scenario is that only one can be allowed to survive and the Grim Reaper has to choose - who would you choose?

 

Scattering Dad

 Another amusing comedy from the pen of Kate Mallinder. A man discovers more than he bargained for at the reading of his father's will.

 

The Unquiet Grave

 Pupils from Grace Dieu Manor School enact the mystery story of what happened to the body of Roesia de Verdun, foundress of Grace Dieu Priory, between the dissolution of the priory in 1538 and the present day. This project was partly funded by North West Leicestershire District Council Small Grant scheme.

Ashby Zombie Apocalypse

This zany comedy from Mark Taylor paints an hilarious picture of Ashby in the zombie apocalypse world which emerges two years after Brexit. To quote the author: "It's all a bit of nonsense," but great fun and very funny!

 

Back in Time at St Helen's

This is a shortened version of the 30 minute film we made in a joint project with St Helen's Heritage Project. Primary School children visit St Helen's Church Ashby and interview historical characters from the Church's past.

 

Painting the Town Red

 Young volunteers from Melton Carnegie Museum recreate the courtroom scene where the Marquis of Waterford and his pals were tried for "discreditable conduct, disgrateful rioting and assault," having painted Melton Mowbray red - literally!
