The Barry Hines Novel ‘A Kestrel for a Knave’ and Ken Loach’s famous film adaptation are both modern classics. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Kes, Barnsley born choreographer Jonathan Watkins reimagines the work weaving dance, projections, puppetry and music to create a family friendly Kes to rival War Horse, the Guardian called it ‘genuinely too powerful for words’. The stage version has been expertly re-engineered for the cinema screen by director Ross MacGibbon and premieres at LIFF with a Q&A with cast and crew.

Please note the change of venue for Kes: Reimagined, now Vue in The Light - the date, time and tickets remain the same.
