Neil Brand presents Buster Keaton
About Neil Brand presents Buster Keaton

Genius, surrealist, man with a death wish? Buster Keaton was probably the greatest manipulator of the film camera- and what could be done in front of it - ever to have lived.

Join composer, musician and broadcaster Neil Brand, who has been accompanying Keaton's films on the piano for over 30 years, through Buster's early life and background, his funniest gags and most death-defying stunts and learn along the way just how he put those amazing films together.

The talk will be followed by a screening of Keaton's 'Steamboat Bill Jr' - a chance to watch him try to impress his river-rat father and get caught in a cyclone that brings THAT house falling down around him...

The whole evening will be accompanied by Neil in his signature style.

£10 / £8 conc / £6 child

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Neil Brand presents Buster Keaton are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
