Great timing this movie is to be released on 19 August – night before our Junior Fun day
forthcoming film adaptation of SWALLOWS AND AMAZONS which will be in cinemas on 19th August. It’s an enchanting new take on the beloved novel by Arthur Ransome which tells the story of the Walker children, whose summer holiday in the Lake District sees them sailing out on their own to a local island, only to find themselves in competition with a rival group of children who call themselves the Amazons and ultimately an adventure far bigger than they could have imagined. Combining a great British cast with stunning locations and a classic story, Swallows & Amazons is an exciting and heart-warming adventure that will be a must-see for family audiences this summer.
Directed by BAFTA-winning British filmmaker Philippa Lowthorpe and starring: Rafe Spall, Kelly Macdonald, Andrew Scott and Jessica Hynes.
