A Taste of Honey screening and Q&A at the Cornerhouse in Manchester

Taste

Yesterday, we were incredibly sad to hear of the death of Shelagh Delaney, who died of cancer, aged 71. She was and is a northern icon, star and inspiration for The Smiths and noted playwright, writing the classic A Taste of Honey when she was just 19. If you've never seen it, there's a special screening of the movie at Manchester's Cornerhouse on Wednesday 30th November.

Special, because this one-off screening of the 1961 ony Richardson-directed kitchensink classic features a Q&A with one of the stars of the movie, Murray Melvin, who played Geoffrey Ingham. He'll be hanging around to take our questions after the screening of the film.

If you can't make that, check out the inspiration behind the woman behind the play and film. Shelagh Delaney's Salford is online and available to watch below. Just 15 minutes long, but this Ken Russell-directed BBC film pretty much sums up both Delaney and her city 'back in the day'.
