Being Human Festival


Have you heard the story of Shipley’s leading role in the development of film and TV?  

Meeting at Shipley’s historic market square, our storyteller will take you on a journey of the town's key contributions to TV and film, before leading you to our secret cinema. Here we will explore the development of the global film industry over the last 100 years, from Shipley to social media and all in the world's first UNESCO City of Film.

Experts will be on hand to guide you through making your own short film clips, before we pay homage to local Shipley legend Tony Richardson and settle down to watch his classic film ‘A Taste of Honey’.

Come along and uncover the secrets of Shipley as part of the Being Human Festival. We’re ready to make it the worst kept secret in broadcasting! 

Refreshments and snacks will be available and 1950/60s dress is optional as we step back in time for a night at the movies.
