We're delighted to welcome director Robert Crampton and producer Sally Coe for an introduction and Q&A.

A larger-than-life character, Leeds saxophonist Matthew Coe AKA Xero Slingsby was an inspirational force in 1980s jazz with a fiery punk performance style. Shove It - the Xero Slingsby story celebrates his short but stellar life and career, lovingly chronicled by his bandmates, friends and family. From his start busking on the streets of West Yorkshire (for which he was arrested over 40 times) to his trio The Works’ success on the live circuit across Europe, we witness his tirelessly passionate spirit first hand through high energy concert footage and interviews.
