Film Premiere! Unlocking the Severn documentary
Since the beginning of our project (way back in 2018!) we have been working with award-winning film-maker Nina Constable and consummate wild places broadcaster Monty Halls to document our progress as we have worked towards our ultimate goal of the return of the shad to the length of the River Severn.
As we enter the final year of our project, with 158 miles of river habitat finally unlocked, we are thrilled to present the completed documentary that tells our project’s story.
Join us with Monty Halls, Nina Constable and members of the Unlocking the Severn project team, for the online premiere of the film ‘Unlocking the Severn’ followed by Q&A afterwards.
The Premiere event on Wed 16 February, starting at 7.30pm with a welcome before the screening and live Q&A with film maker Nina Constable and presenter Monty Halls after the film, will be a ticketed online event hosted on Zoom – CLICK HERE to book your tickets for the online Premiere event with Q&A after the film.
