Musical Notes

Colin is a much loved figure in Bangor and has a special place in the heart of Open House Festival. His literary wit and humour have brought him incredible success in the book world. But with this ‘Colin Bateman Season’, we want to shine a light on his screen writing talents.

Watermelon is a 2003 television film starring Anna Friel, Jamie Draven and Brenda Fricker. The screenplay written by Colin is inspired by the novel of the same name by Marian Keyes. It is a lighthearted Irish drama following the troubles of a young couple when he finds out his beloved is carrying another man’s baby.

Our screening will be introduced by Colin Bateman, with an audience Q&A at the end of the film.

Run time: 1hr 14mins
