The Phoenix Theatre and Arts Centre in Bordon is showing the film Fisherman’s Friends: One and All (12A) on Wednesday, February 22, at 7.30pm.
This is the uplifting sequel to the 2019 movie Fisherman’s Friends about the titular Cornish folk singer troupe and their rise to stardom.
There is stunning Cornish scenery and some swinging sea shanties in this heart-warming true story.
Fisherman’s Friends formed in Port Isaac – the setting for the Doc Martin television series – in 1995.
BBC radio presenter Johnnie Walker discovered them in 2009.
Following the unexpected success of the band’s debut album No Hopers, Jokers and Rogues, the audience drops in again on the group almost a year later – struggling with the pressures, pitfalls and temptations of their new-found fame, second album syndrome, and performing on the pyramid stage at Glastonbury.
The film stars James Purefoy, Sam Swainsbury, Dave Johns and Richard Hainsworth.
