Yorkshire Silent Film Festival's Sheffield Big Weekend gets off to a dramatic start with one of cinema's best loved tales, Charles Dickens' OLIVER TWIST. Following the huge success of Neil Brand's score for last year's THE LODGER, we're thrilled to welcome Neil back with the world premiere of another orchestral score, again played by the UK's leading cinema orchestra, Covent Garden Sinfonia.

Oliver is brought up in the workhouse along with all the other orphans — until the day he asks for more gruel. An outraged Mr Bumble takes Oliver out into the street to be sold, beginning an adventure that will take Oliver to the depths of London's criminal underworld and the heights of wealthy London society. Charles Dickens' novel is brought to vivid life in this 1922 version starring Jackie Coogan (fresh from his success the year before in Charlie Chaplin's The Kid), and the great Lon Chaney, the man of a thousand faces, as Fagin.

Also screening as part of this performance: Dickens' London (1924).

Tickets £16.50 (concessions £8.50).
Children 18 and under are FREE to all YSFF 2018 screenings at Abbeydale Picture House. (Children under 16 must be accompanied by a ticket-buying adult).
