Keswick Film Festival

The Story of St Kentigern

Friday 6.00pm, Studio, Tickets £2

St Herbert's CE Primary School and BlueJam Arts have worked with composer Jilly Jarman and film-maker Zoe Mackintosh to create a performance with film and live and recorded music inspired by the miracles of Kentigern. St Kentigern (the alternate name for St Mungo) stopped at Keswick and the Crosthwaite church and the school's badges are based on his symbols. His alleged miracles are remembered by the poem:

Here is the bird that never flew

Here is the tree that never grew

Here is the bell that never rang

Here is the fish that never swam

Thanks to funding from the Cumbria Community Foundation and The Hadfield Trust.

BlueJam Arts is a social enterprise running an inter-generational music and arts programme in Cumbria. They have been working with some of the children to produce film and music for us.
