Bash Street Premiere

A film was created following the premiere of Bash Street.

There was a write-up done by the Gazette (below) where it clearly states that the film, which was put together over five years on a budget of just £7,000, inter-relates a number of real-life experiences of crime, growing up and relationships.

“Among the star names involved in the Bash Street project is former Spice Girl Mel C, who sang the theme song for the low-budget production.

Mr Deedigan, a former London drama student, who studied alongside the likes of Damon Albarn of the band Blur, met Mel C at a party more than ten years ago. She agreed to sing a song for the film, which she recorded at Kandu Arts’ offices in Foghamshire.

It was filmed around [Chippenham], including at Karma nightclub, Revolutions restaurant and The Audley Arms.

It also features many up-and-coming stars from North Wiltshire Young People’s Theatre Group.
Bash Street was funded by the Regional Investment Fund for England through the UK Film Council and South West Screen.”
