“Troubling, brilliant and unmissable.” – The Guardian
Join Fright Club as this classic celebrates its 50th Birthday! Devout Christian policeman Sergeant Howie (Edward Woodward) finds himself summoned to a remote Scottish island to investigate the disappearance of a child. On arrival, Howie finds himself increasingly isolated and humiliated by the actions of the island’s community, who belong to a bizarre pagan cult led by the charming Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee). As preparations for a sinister ritual celebration reach fever pitch, Howie, whilst trying to fend off the advances of the local landlord’s daughter Willow (Britt Ekland), begins to suspect what role the islanders intend him to play.
The Wicker Man: 50th Anniversary Event is a star-studded on-stage celebration of the film, its undisputed status as a cult classic and perhaps the best British horror film ever made. Presented by Edith Bowman, the on-stage show will include guest of honour, actress Britt Ekland, chief film critic from The Independent, Clarisse Loughrey, associate musical director from the film Gary Carpenter, Dominic and Justin Hardy – sons of the director Robin Hardy, who are currently making a documentary about their father’s experience with the film, and superfan of The Wicker Man: acclaimed writer/actor Reece Shearsmith. There will be an exclusive musical performance by Broadside Hacks, covering 4 tracks from the iconic soundtrack.
