Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Silent Night & festive films


Flatpack and Colmore Business District have joined up once more for a festive silent film spectacular at Birmingham Cathedral, this time with live accompaniment from pianist John Sweeney.

On the big screen, a heavenly double-bill…Laurel and Hardy play Christmas tree salesmen with an outrageously aggressive sales pitch in Big Business (1929) and Harold Lloyd in The Kid Brother (1927), a romantic slapstick romp. Ticket price includes festive and non-festive refreshments courtesy of Change Kitchen. Nom.

If that wasn’t enough, Stirchley Happenings will be screening The Bishop’s Wife (1947) featuring Cary Grant as a charming angel (naturally) who visits earth at Christmas to answer a bishop’s prayer to help build a cathedral. There will also be short films and the obligatory festive refreshments. *hic*

Silent Night. 7.30pm, Friday 6 December. Birmingham Cathedral.

The Bishop’s Wife: Christmas Film Screening. 4pm, Sunday 15 December. Stirchley Community Church
