Squircle Arts, Emberlense Productions & Torquay Museum are proud to invite you to the World Premiere of a new Spanish Flu Documentary which was made by young film makers (aged 11 to 16 years old) on the first Documentary workshop for young people at Torquay Museum.
We are immensely proud of the film the young production team has produced about the Spanish Flu in 1918 and how it spread across the world, visiting the past, present and future. Part of the production course was to learn about film-making techniques, production planning and interviewing in the film they have produced.
The film was made in conjunction with Squircle Arts, Emberlense Productions, Torquay Museum and with support from the Wellcome Trust.
Tickets for the Premiere are free, with doors opening at 4.30pm for a 5pm Premiere. To book your place please call Torquay Museum on 01803 293975.

EVENT POSTPONED UNTIL A LATER DATE IN NOVEMBER TO AT A GREAT LOCATION
Come along to Big Poetry for an evening of wordplay and whimsy in the company of Samantha Boarer and Robert Garnham. On show tonight will be some of the finest locally sourced spoken word artists in the south west. And, tying in with the Torbay Film Festival, tonight’s special headliner will be Jamie Harry Scrutton.
Jamie is a poet and an animator whose work is whimsical, wise, often funny, occasionally poignant, and always life-affirming. His performance style is unlike any other poet, as he adopts the characteristics of his poem narrators and creates new worlds live on stage, backed up by projections of his work. This is an evening not to be missed!
The show starts at 8pm at the Blue Walnut, doors open 7.30pm, entry price £6. For seat reservations, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
