He will be at two screenings at the Old Road Tavern on Sunday, where he will answer audience questions.

Lindsey Miller, manager of the Old Road Tavern, said: “I am really excited to be hosting Chippenham’s screening for such a landmark of a film on the music industry. We’re so privileged to have Graham come to our pub.

“Tickets are selling well so I’d highly recommend for anyone who wants to come to buy them from here in advance.”
