World Premiere: 501 Not Out + Q&A

Sat 17th and Wed 21st August

Twenty-five years on from Brian Lara’s world-record breaking innings for Warwickshire at Edgbaston, Sam Lockyer’s brand new documentary 501 Not Out tells the story of cricket’s first global superstar.

Exploring Lara’s remarkable ascent in 1994, the film also celebrates his development in Trinidad and features interviews with a number of iconic names from the world of cricket. These include his former international and county team-mates from the historic treble winning season, his friends and coaches in the Caribbean, fans who witnessed the marathon knock first-hand and those inspired by his heroics. Notable contributions come from Sir Curtly Ambrose, Allan Donald, Dermot Reeve, Gladstone Small, Dennis Amiss, Jonathan Agnew, Ian Bell, Deryck Murray, Bryan Davis and Trini Posse Group co-founders Nikki Borde and Nigel Camacho.

Featuring rarely seen archive footage and stills, the film also examines the wider impact of Lara’s arrival and success at Warwickshire, coming so soon after the test record 375. 501 Not Out brings an amazing story to life on the big screen during Lara’s 50th year – his own half-century – with this screening coming at the height of a huge summer for cricket in the UK.

The screening will be followed by an exclusive on stage Q&A featuring the following special guests 

Tim Munton – a friend and team-mate of Lara’s and co-captain during Warwickshire’s ‘94 treble winning season

John Morris – former Durham and England international, who famously bowled Lara a bouncer on 497

Ian Bell – England legend and five-time Ashes winner

Gladstone Small – former Warwickshire and England bowler and friend of Lara

Sam Lockyer – director of 501 Not Out

Please note: the Q&A line-up is subject to change due to availability of guests.

Following the screening, there will be an After Party at the ‘501 Lounge’ at Edgbaston cricket ground from 9pm-midnight.
