Film U & Uc, Sat 28 Jul 2018

Swallows and Amazons

Swallows and Amazons


The film will be introduced by Sophie Neville, who played Titty in the 1973 film (and who also appeared briefly, incognito, in the 2016 film), in Keswick to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the filming of Swallows and Amazons on and around Derwentwater.

Besides letting us into some of the secrets of the filming (including a live demonstration of being fired at by an arrow!), Sophie will hold a Q&A session after the film, and be available to sign copies of her book, The Making of Swallows and Amazons.

The dingy used in the 1973 film is still shipshape, and will be in Keswick for you to see – she can be hired too!


Four children dream of escaping the tedium of a summer holiday in the Lake District with their mother. When finally given permission to camp on their own on a remote island in the middle of a vast lake, they are overjoyed. But when they get there they discover they may not be alone... As a desperate battle for ownership of the island ensues, the real dangers of an adult world on the brink of war encroach on their paradise in the form of a mysterious pair of Russian spies hot on the tail of the enigmatic Jim Turner. As the sleepy British summer is turned on its head, the children must learn skills of survival, responsibility, and the all-important value of friendship. Steeped in the wonder of a child's imagination and set against the breath-taking backdrop of the Lakes, this is an exhilarating adaptation of a treasured classic.
