Sometimes the best education comes from the most unexpected places. Growing up in the 70s and 80s, Mel Byron learnt everything she knows from films of the 30s and 40s. Everything about life, frocks, and especially, love. Whilst her schoolmates snuck into Burnley’s night clubs – underage – she dreamt of drinking champagne on a luxury liner with Cary Grant. If you’re a fan of those b/w classics, join Mel for an affectionate look at the films that shaped her teenage years and the years beyond.
