Age of Stupid


We’re showing AGE OF STUPID this Friday, 4th Sept at 7.30pm.

The Age Of Stupid
(certificate 12A, 92 mins)

ageofstupidSet in the future, this indie film about climate change has inspired millions of fans. Oscar-nominated actor Pete Postlethwaite stars as a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055, looking back at archive footage from 2007 and asking: why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?

Tickets £7 (£5 to members of Slow Food.)
Please call to book on 01488 674737

Why is it cheaper to Slow Food members? The local SF group have organised this event and SLOW FOOD is a movement we support. The way we produce food is inextricably linked to the climate change issue, and so it’s only fitting that their film is shown at the Sheepdrove Eco Conference Centre. On Friday the Oak Room will become a cinema for the night!

This is just one of many events at the Sheepdrove Eco Conference Centre.


Claire Marriage started an open discussion after the film, and one of the audience suggested that Radio 4 ought to have something like ‘Thought for the Day’ but all about environmental issues. So we started a campaign for it. Please sign our petition!
