      IT¹S NICE UP NORTH
      Martin Parr and John Shuttleworth
      Tuesday 11 October, 7.30pm

      Spike Island presents the first screening outside of the Edinburgh Fringe of
      It's Nice Up North, a film by the internationally renowned photographer
      Martin Parr and versatile singer/organist John Shuttleworth. The screening
      will be followed by a question and answer session with Parr and
      Shuttleworth.

      John Shuttleworth decides to test the popular theory Œthat the further north
      you travel, the friendlier people will be¹ by venturing to Britain's most
      northerly spot, the Shetland Isles. Foiled by failing light, let down by a
      flat car battery, and buffeted by the constant wind, John doggedly pursues
      his quest; asking everyone he meets the all-important question; "Is it nice
      up North?"

      Filmed by photographer Martin Parr "Brilliant observer of middle England"
      (Daily Telegraph) and co-starring Shetland tour guide Elma Johnson as
      herself, It's Nice Up North is a hilarious spoof documentary; a glorious mix
      of spurious actuality caught by Parr's ever-roving camera, and complete
      nonsense from the mouth of John Shuttleworth, "Sheffield's funniest man"
      (Independent).

      It's Nice Up North will be screened in the gallery space at Spike Island on
      Tuesday 11 October at 7.30pm.
      Tickets are £5 (£4 concessions) and can be purchased on the door.
      For further information call the Spike Island office on 0117 929 2266.
