East Riding Film Festival – To Barbara Love Kenneth: My Friendship with Kenneth Williams
September 15, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Live on Stage Barbara Waslin-Ashbridge in conversation with Wes Butters followed by screening of the classic Carry on Camping on the big screen.
Barbara Waslin-Ashbridge, of Hull, couldn’t believe her luck when in 1973 she befriended the comedy actor Kenneth Williams. Having loved his work in the Carry On films and on radio and TV, the pair formed a close bond that remains immortalised in over 120 letters, of which only one appeared in the book The Kenneth Williams Letters, published in 1994 as a sequel to his infamous diaries.
In conversation with broadcaster and writer Wes Butters, himself a Kenneth Williams biographer, Barbara’s story will be illustrated with many of her previously unseen letters, photographs and rare archive material – much of which haven’t been seen since their original broadcasts.
The evening culminates in a screening of the classic film
Carry On Camping (PG).
