Tickets for the premiere of Chagford Fimmaking Group’s Cherry of Zennor are now available.
As Charles Dickens said: “In a utilitarian age, it is a matter of grave importance that fairy tales should be respected.”
Well said, Chuck, which translated into modern parlance is: get your tickets to the Cherry of Zennor screening at the Exeter Picturehouse on Sunday, February 8 at 11.30am.
You can pick up the tickets from the Big Red Sofa in Chagford or online from the Chagford filmmaking group’s website.
And if you need more convincing, here’s a sample of the story:
“Once upon time in the parish of Zennor there lived a girl called Cherry. She could run as fast as a hare and was ever full of frolic and mischief.
“Soon after Cherry reached her teens she became very discontented, because year-after-year her mother had been promising her a new frock.
“Cherry was sixteen when one of her playmates got a new dress smartly trimmed with ribbons. This put Cherry in a fever of desire. She declared to her mother she would go to seek for service, that she might get some clothes like other girls. One fine morning Cherry tied up a few things in a bundle and prepared to start.”
Teenagers, ehh? The same throughout history. We reckon it’ll all end in tragedy. But you’d have to see the film to be sure. Tickets are £6 for adults, £5 for youngsters.
Here are some stills from the production. For stills of the Chagford Filmmaking Group’s next film, Peerifool, check out our story on D+CFilm.
