From first-time director Audrey Rumsby comes Barry & Joan, a delightful insight into the creative world of Barry and Joan Grantham, two British eccentrics who have kept the skills of British vaudeville alive for over seventy years. Since becoming stage-struck lovers in 1948, Barry and Joan have taught, danced and acted alongside the greats of British film and theatre. They are the last of the golden generation of vaudeville acts, eager to pass on their legacy and passion to future generations. This quirky documentary takes us on a journey through the lives of Barry and Joan’s rich history as performing artists and creators on stage and screen.

This screening will be accompanied by a Q&A with Barry & Joan’s director, Audrey Rumsby, hosted by Dr. Sheldon Hall, Film Historian, Sheffield Hallam University.
