The recent screening of Julien Temple’s The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson at Bridgwater College’s The McMillan Theatre, raised over £400 for the Teenage Cancer Trust and the expansion of local facility The Engine Room.
The special benefit screening saw Julien Temple introduce the film and answer questions from the audience, such as what it was like to spend time with Wilko when he was so ill.
Phil Shepherd, from Somerset Film said,
“Somerset Film were delighted to work with The McMillan Theatre, the Teenage Cancer Trust and Julien. It was a pleasure to present a screening of this fantastic new film to the local community, it was a great night and enjoyed by all.”
