15 cinema age rating  

This unmissable live event will take a candid look into the mind of Alan Bennett, Britain’s best-loved writer, who, at 82, shows no signs of slowing down.

Full film details

The event will include a screening of Alan Bennett’s Diaries, a new film about the writer, followed by an exclusive Q&A with Alan Bennett from his local community library in Primrose Hill.

Inspired by his acerbic and often hilarious diaries, the film shows Alan as he’s never been seen before – following him to New York, the scene of his early triumph in Beyond The Fringe, to accept an award from the city’s Public Library; to Shepherd’s Bush to record an episode of Private Passions for Radio 3 and open up about the importance of music in his life; to his local community-run library in Primrose Hill, which, he despairs, some would rather see turned into a Pizza Hut; to the East Coast railway line, which he’d like to see renationalised, and the village in Yorkshire he calls home. Intimate encounters, filmed over the course of a year, reveal a writer who is bemused by his own popularity and is still as angry and irreverent in his 80s as he was in his 20s.
