Saturday Night and Sunday Morning: The Event
What do Karel Reisz’s classic 1960 film version of ‘Saturday Night and Sunday Morning’, all-female punk band The Smears and acerbic rap/rant outfit The Sleaford Mods have in common? Well, they all have a Nottingham connection, they all have attitude to burn, and they’re all appearing at the Nottingham Contemporary on Saturday 30th June.
It’s going to be the biggest, baddest and most bolshy evening in Nottingham this month – and it’s not to be missed. The film kicks things off at 7.30pm. The music gets cranked up from 9pm in the CafeBar. In addition to the bands, DJ Mista Shotta will be spinning some choice vinyl from the 60s.
And if Sunday morning finds you free from the clutches of the hangover, then head back to the Nottingham Contemporary and join us for a chilled out jazz breakfast. ‘Saturday Night and Sunday Morning’ is the definitive novel and film of Nottingham, so what better way to celebrate that a Saturday night and Sunday morning at one of Nottingham’s most essential venues.
The cost? Just six quid for the film. The gig’s free. You’re welcome. Tickets are available from the Nottingham Contemporary or via LeftLion. Book now and we’ll see you there.
‘Saturday Night and Sunday Morning: The Event’ is part of the Alan Sillitoe Season 2012. Go here for your guide to this year’s celebration of Alan’s life and work.
