Rare Exports

A young boy named Pietari and his friend Juuso think a secret mountain drilling project near their home in northern Finland has uncovered the tomb of Santa Claus. However, this a monstrous, evil Santa, much unlike the cheery St. Nick of legend. When Pietari’s father captures a feral old man in his wolf trap, the man may hold the key to why reindeer are being slaughtered and children are disappearing.

The Muppets Christmas Carol

The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge. Other Muppets — Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle — weave in and out of the story, while Scrooge receives visits from spirits of three Christmases — past, present and future. They show him the error of his self-serving ways, but the miserable old man seems to be past any hope of redemption and happiness.

Manatomy

“The language, wit, insights, power of expression… Simply magnificent. You don’t have to have grown up gay to love and appreciate this poetry, but it will of course have a special charge, beauty and meaning for those of us who have” Stephen Fry
“Bold and startling” Julian Clary
“Utterly contemporary and impressively confessional. A book that was missing from the lives of many youths of my generation” David McAlmont
“Hilarious and honest, ‘Manatomy’ will help you understand gay life, love and sex better. It certainly helped me…” Jonathan Harvey

‘Manatomy’, the debut spoken word poetry collection from Norfolk writer James McDermott (Rubber Ring, Time & Tide, Robin Good) is a collection of wry witty cheeky poems exploring how nature, nurture, Norfolk, pop culture and politics have shaped his identity as a camp queer man.

Several poems from the collection were shot as a film produced by Inn Crowd and Applause Rural Touring. This 20 minute film will be screened at this event followed by a live reading from James McDermott who will perform 40 minutes of poems from the collection followed by a book signing.

It’s a Wonderful Life

George Bailey has spent his entire life giving of himself to the people of Bedford Falls. He has always longed to travel but never had the opportunity in order to prevent rich skinflint Mr. Potter from taking over the entire town. All that prevents him from doing so is George’s modest building and loan company, which was founded by his generous father. But on Christmas Eve, George’s Uncle Billy loses the business’s $8,000 while intending to deposit it in the bank. Potter finds the misplaced money and hides it from Billy. When the bank examiner discovers the shortage later that night, George realizes that he will be held responsible and sent to jail and the company will collapse, finally allowing Potter to take over the town. Thinking of his wife, their young children, and others he loves will be better off with him dead, he contemplates suicide. But the prayers of his loved ones result in a gentle angel named Clarence coming to earth to help George, with the promise of earning his wings. He shows George what things would have been like if he had never been born.
