No one who attended the performances of Geraldine Connor’s epic masterpiece Carnival Messiah at Harewood House will ever forget it. Leeds-based director Ashley Karrell’s film takes you closer to the action than ever before - huge cast, loud music, spectacular carnival costumes. This special screening will also feature interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from both then and now. Join the director and producer David Lascelles for a discussion after the screening. The Geraldine Connor Foundation wishes to thank Harewood House Trust (registered charity 517753) for permission to screen Carnival Messiah.
