ACCLAIMED Milton Keynes documentary ‘3 Curly Wurlys & 106 Roundabouts’ is set to have a special charity screening at Cineworld in the new year.

The film, produced by city author and journalist Lee Scriven, will show at 8.30pm on Thursday, January 22 at the Xscape based cinema.

Proceeds will go to Willen Hospice, with patrons asked to make a donation to the charity.

The film, starring Trevor Marshall, is based on the burgeoning era of Milton Keynes and features rare archive film footage of the city, including some clips that have not been shown in public for over 40 years and some that have never been shown at all.

It also features a number of interviews from the likes of MK Dons chairman Pete Winkelamn and Derek Walker, the first chief architect of Milton Keynes.

Mr Scriven said: “It was hard work pulling it all together, but the nice reviews lifted me and made it all worthwhile.

“It’s never been my intention to charge people to see the film, but I thought this could be an enjoyable way of raising some important funds for an important local charity,” said Lee.
