An award-winning Coventry film maker is using his movie premiere night in the city to help raise vital funds for The Myton Hospices.
Lee Greenhough will be unveiling his debut feature film – A Kidnap – at Square One in Coventry on Saturday 30th October.
And he is urging film lovers and loyal Coventrians and fellow Midlanders to support the evening – and Myton – by buying a ticket to the event.
As well as the film premiere ...
the red-carpet occasion will feature live music from local band Ruff and Lamb, who also appear on the film soundtrack, a late bar and a fabulous charity auction, full of fantastic lots, all in aid of Myton.
I’m really hoping for a full house on what promises to be a great night – for me, for the actors, for the guests and for The Myton Hospices.
This is my first feature-length movie and it is shot using local actors and locations, so I hope it’s something the city of Coventry and the Midlands can be proud of.
The film itself is a psychological thriller about ‘the kidnap of a teenage brother and sister and their efforts to escape before the kidnappers and their twisted relationships with each other implode’.
It features three strong female lead characters and, while being a thriller, offers a strong moral compass.
The event, which kicks off at 6pm is open to everyone – and tickets costing just £10 are available online by clicking here or from Lee on 07725 104139.

Lee is also appealing for auction prize donations to maximise the money raised for The Myton Hospices on the evening.
Clare Cropp, Fundraising Operations Manager for The Myton Hospices said:
Lee is a long standing Myton supporter and he most recently helped us by hosting a Virtual Quiz in aid of Myton during the Covid-19 pandemic. We can’t thank Lee enough for his ongoing support and wish him every success with the upcoming film premiere.
