Part of the Ken Russell weekend, featuring Ken in conversation with Derek Malcolm, and screenings of films Song of Summer and Mahler.

We are delighted to welcome Ken to the Alhambra in a return to Keswick, and look forward to hearing him talk with Derek Malcolm (currently film critic of the London Evening Standard and President of the British Federation of Film Societies).

Both films were shot in Borrowdale, and both, in their separate ways, are typical of Ken Russell's highly-regarded skill as a filmmaker and his brilliant inventiveness and ability to capture emotion and inspiration.
