After a very successful 2014 celebrating the life and films of Joy Batchelor with screenings, around London, Lisbon, Liverpool, Bradford and Brighton, we are continuing in 2015 with this year's focus on 75 years of Halas & Batchelor.

This summer Penguin Books will publish a special facsimile edition of George Orwells' book to mark its 70th anniversary using the Joy Batchelor/ John Halas illustrations that were made at the time of the film release in 1954/5.

In the planning stages are exhibitions, screenings and more events.
