Stockport Plaza hosts a tribute afternoon this February in honour of one of the most beloved stars of classic British cinema, Gracie Fields. Beginning with a light afternoon tea in the venue’s 1930s-style art deco Café Lounge, Plaza director David Blake will host an insightful presentation, building up to two of Gracie’s greatest films, Sing As We Go and Look Up and Laugh, shown later in the evening. As well as celebrating the life and work of the star herself, David will also discuss the acclaimed writer of both films, J B Priestley, and Welsh songwriter Harry Par Davies, who wrote the music scores, before attention is turned to the special double bill screening. A fascinating tribute suitable for any Gracie fan.
Fri 28 Feb, Stockport Plaza, Mersey Square, Stockport, SK1 1SP, tea and talk starts at 5.30pm, film screenings at 7.30pm, tea and talk £10, film screenings £6.50, quaytickets.com
