‘Take Me High’ at TASCOS, Sunday 24th March, 8:00pm

March 20, 2013

Cliff-Richard-Take-Me-High--Pos-90125

The last night of local festival Art Soak will climax with one of Birmingham’s finest moments on film: Cliff Richard’s last ever feature: ‘Take Me High’.

Cliff stars as Tim Matthews, a young city-slicker who dreams of being posted to one of the metropolitan capitals of the world, but ends up being sent to Birmingham. Initially devastated, Cliff starts to change his mind the instant his Mini hits the warm tarmac of the Aston Expressway, and he finds love amongst canals, concrete and junk food.

The film will be preceded by ‘There is a Better Lifestyle’, a 1980s promotional film encouraging the upper-middle classes to leave London and experience the best Brum has to offer: lawn tennis, clarinet lessons and an enthusiastic Simon Rattle.

We’ll be screening both films in the upstairs room at TASCOS at 8:00pm. Come along from 7:00pm to catch some poetry from Write Down, Speak Up and partake in some savoury snacks too!

(Make sure you don’t miss ‘Hinterland’ by Tom Cahill-Jones on Saturday 23rd March – more detail about this in the post below. Check out the rest of the Art Soak programme here.)
