A Day in the Life brings Sgt Pepper to a close in symphonic fashion and this new film by writer Frank Cottrell-Boyce and Liverpool’s award-winning Hurricane Films will be a fitting finale when it receives its world premiere at Woolton Picture House.

How do you measure a day? Bus tables, tide timetables, 24 hours….zero hours.

Starring legendary Liverpool comedian Tom O’Connor as retired river pilot Arthur, and rising star Paislie Reid as Ellie, his carer, the  lm takes a ride on the city’s famous 86 bus – the route which Paul McCartney took to school – and beyond, through the space-time continuum.

The 16 June event will include a special Q&A with the creative team.

Following its premiere, A Day in the Life (24 Zero Hours) is expected to be screened at a number of venues across Liverpool.



As part of the celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of the release of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album, Hurricane Films are inviting aspiring  lm makers to submit short films that depict a day in their life on June 1st, 2017 – 50 years to the day, since the album’s release. A selection of the submitted films will be shown at the premiere.
