Weds 1st August
British writer-director Deborah Haywood’s sly, provocative and much-praised feature debut Pin Cushion follows a wickedly unique mother-daughter duo, Iona (Lily Newmark) and her eccentric mum Lyn (Joanna Scanlan), as they move to a Midlands town. Casting a keen eye on the complex relationships between women, this deliciously dark and distinctive film combines a dreamlike, fairytale feel with shards of something much sharper and more troubling.

Weds 8th August
Hair hoppers – come along in your Hairspray-inspired finery – from 60s couture to Divine drag. Everyone is welcome for this special night at The Picture House. Legendary (Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music) DJ Red Helen, will be spinning retro discs and teaching the Hairspray, dance-classic, The Madison (pre-film), so you’re set to stroll and sing along in the aisles.

Thurs 16th August
David Wilkinson’s thoughtful documentary takes a tour of Britain to assess the possible consequences of Brexit and the relative benefits of remaining in the European Union. Canvasing campaigners, captains of industry, Holocaust survivors and artistic and political luminaries including Patrick Stewart, Nick Clegg and Ian McEwan, Wilkinson makes a persuasive case for persisting in trying to overturn the 2016 referendum.
