FRIDAY 1st February 2019


Steve Jenner will tell the story of how he and his brother, Paul, fulfilled their boyhood dreams of running their own radio station. In Steve’s words, ” it’s a sort of family story, it’s kind of about radio, it is definitely about human relationships and it is certainly about what happens when the little guys take on the big guys.  It is also about the development and democratization of the local media environment”.

Steve Jenner was brought up in a mining town in the former North Nottinghamshire coalfield and was once a teacher at Carlton Le Willows school before moving into commercial radio broadcasting.  His media career has also included several television appearances and he’s also been a successful national championship-level racing driver and a news journalist, and still works as a music critic for a top London music website.

THE LITTLE STRANGER  12a, 111minutes

Starring Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Will Poulter and Charlotte Rampling

THE LITTLE STRANGER tells the story of Dr Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1947, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked. The Hall has been home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries, but it is now in decline and its inhabitants – mother, son and daughter – are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely, and how terrifyingly, the family’s story is about to become entwined with his own.

Based on the novel by Sarah Waters
