Neil Brand, piano (Family Concert Matinée)
April 2, 2022 - 3:00 pm

FAMILY SLAPSTICK: Think that slapstick comedy and custard-pie throwing started in the 1920s? Think again. They've been around since the dawn of cinema.


PLEASE NOTE: Tickets purchased for the original date are still valid.


Neil Brand (BBC4 Sound of Cinema/Sound of Song and Radio 4 Film Programme regular) presents short comedies made between 1903 and 1929 to prove that people were always being chased, falling over and being kicked in the behind.

From pioneering British film-makers experimenting with new camera technology to the greatest exponents of Hollywood mayhem, this show will have something to make everybody laugh from age 9 to 90!

"Arguably the country’s greatest silent movie score composer”
Mark Kermode
