About this Event

The Pennine Way Screening - Manchester

On Tuesday 23rd April, we’ll be showing our new film “The Pennine Way” in our hometown of Manchester at the city's biggest and friendliest street food and events space, Grub!

Pop down any time from 6pm for drinks at the bar and top notch street food.

The evening's films and talks kick off at 7.30pm

The British Mountaineering Council will be showing their new short film

Access Land (7mins)

In 'Access Land', we delve into the BMC's passionate advocacy for increased access to the great outdoors. In this short film we explore the fundamental importance of connecting with nature and discover why the BMC is actively campaigning for a default of responsible access, advocating for the right to wild camp, walk and climb. Together, let's champion the right to roam and ensure that everyone has the opportunity to connect with nature.

followed by a short Q&A session.

We'll then move on to a film by the very talented Liam Iggins. Produced by Cotic Bikes and supported by Komoot and Velocio.

Kelly (15mins)

Kelly-Jayne Collinge has been riding off road since 2015, and in that time, has been nothing but a positive force for inclusion, equity, and opportunities. She’s the first person to say yes and, more importantly, the first person to say “no, that isn’t right”. The adventures she undertakes have left everyone breathless and more than a little envious, but those come her way purely by her being one of the most hard-working, genuine, and authentic people you’re likely to meet.
In 2020, when she became pregnant with her son Atlas, the anxiety of impending motherhood weighed heavily. This wasn’t helped by the desertion of brands and relationships that she had worked earnestly to cultivate. Ambassadors exist to promote their brands, but brands also need to champion their people. In this regard, some more-than fumbled. Some of her sponsors showed their true colours by treating pregnancy as an illness instead of leaning into the miraculous and life-changing wonder that it is.
Her embrace of motherhood combined with her pre-existing love of cycling has grown in parallel with Atlas. As he’s become more mobile, the adventures have become even longer-legged, including multiple bike-packing overnighters and shotgun-seat pump track visits. Kelly highlights that the information for new female cyclists is severely lacking; let alone pregnant ones or new mothers. The relatively recent creation of accessible routes and women-only riding groups has been a huge boon and certainly helped Kelly step into her new chapter of life with renewed confidence, or at least a little less trepidation.

The Pennine Way (45mins)

We are showing the extended version of the film, so grab a drink and get comfy

Meet Fredi, the extraordinary 54-year-old South Asian dynamo. She's not your usual hiker. A football coach, gas engineer, and plumber, she's got limited hiking experience. Yet, she's set her sights on conquering the epic 268-mile Pennine Way for her upcoming 55th birthday. Join Fredi as she shares 24 exhilarating days on this historic trail.

followed by a short Q&A session with Frit & Fredi.

Throughout the event we'll also be selling a selection of Sprayway samples and seconds at heavily discounted prices all proceeds will be donated to our friends at Lindley Educational Trust to support their Ashton and Pitsmoor Youth Club projects.
