Featuring a live Q&A with Choreographer Jonathan Watkins and puppeteer Barnaby Meredith

The timeless classic film “Kes” by Ken Loach, based on “A Kestrel for a Knave” by Barry Hines, celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year.

Barnsley born choreographer, Jonathan Watkins (Winner ‘Best Classical Choreography’ at The National Dance Awards Critic Circle) reimagines the work – weaving dance, projections, puppetry and music to create ‘a family-friendly Kes to rival War Horse’.

This staged production premiered at Sheffield Theatres (2014), and now a new version has been created and reimagined for the cinema screen.
