Other dates and venues will be added, but I wanted to let you know the good news straight away!
We could not have got this far without your help. We at Twist Films have been humbled by the support you have given us. Your emails, letters and comments on the petition have given us hope and laughter in our darkest moments. Your belief in the film has strengthened ours.
I would like to end with a comment from the petition:
"We will fight them on the Village Green.
We will fight them at the Villlage Fete.
We will fight them in the Village Pub.
And we will NEVER surrender!"
Thank you. This dance is for you.
