Event description
How did a working class lad born into 19th Century Dudley become, for his time, the highest paid director in Hollywood?

About this Event

Join Craig Denston for a spooktacular look into the life of Dudley-born director, James Whale.

This presentation details an extraordinary life story that goes from a factory to a war, through art to the theatre, to the making of some of the most influential horror movies of all time, and yet ultimately to a heartbreakingly tragic end.

Craig is the former Workshop Manager for Cannon Hill Puppet Theatre - for its time, the largest puppet theatre in Great Britain (Producing four productions per year). By 1992 he began to work freelance, as a mask maker and puppet maker, whilst also giving talks and guided tours on a variety of subjects .

This talk is free for Wolverhampton Society members, whereas guests will need to provide a donation of £3 on the door. Free refreshments are available to all.
