What was a cinema trip like in the days of silent movies? How does adding music change the way we understand and enjoy film?
Don’t miss this introduction to silent film for children with acclaimed composer, musician and broadcaster Neil Brand (BBC4 Sound of Cinema/Sound of Song and Radio 4 Film Programme regular).
Neil will take you on a one-hour journey of funny, silly and slapstick clips for children who will also be invited to suggest music for Neil to play whilst he explains how music changes the story!
Part of Slapstick day along with Bugsy Malone at 10.30am and an evening of Buster Keaton clips with Neil Brand later that evening (for grown-ups!)
