Young people in Bury St Edmunds are being given the opportunity to enjoy a special screening of Angels vs Bullies, a new film starring heart throb Harry Goodwins, and to audition for a follow up movie.

Angels vs Bullies employed around 300 young people and the lead boy, Harry Goodwins, has become one of the top male models in the world, having fronted the recent Superdry campaign and modelled for Prada, Vogue and GQ.

It will be shown at Cineworld, Bury, from November 13 to coincide with anti-bullying week and Suffolk Community Foundation has funded 100 free tickets for a screening on November 19 which will involve a Q&A with one of the actors afterwards.

Groups interested should call 07831 514811 or email kathy@londonbustheatre.co.uk

The London Bus Theatre Company, which produced the film, has been hosting anti-bullying assemblies in schools to promote the film and has received The Big Lottery funding to shoot a follow up to it.

Any young person that watches it at Cineworld, Bury, will be able to pick up an audition registration form at point of sale and apply to audition for it.

Chris Turner, director of Angels vs Bullies, said: “This is an incredible opportunity for young people in Bury St Edmunds. So many teenagers want to get into the film industry and are faced with a number of barriers.

“This project will mean you could gain employment as an actor, background artist or assisting the crew. All our auditions are free, great fun and who knows it could lead to you being on the big screen.”
