The ‘Swallows and Amazons’ Cinema Release Comes Bearing Gifts

in Fandom Must-See

Hey hooo!! Diddly here with ‘Swallows and Amazons’ adventurous news. And when I say news I mean gifts and HOLIDAYYYYS ? for y’all my fantabulous sweeties.

To celebrate the release of the family adventure Swallows And Amazons in cinemas August 19th, StudioCanal & Canopy & Stars are giving one lucky winner the chance to recreate the spirt of the film and win a Sawday’s Canopy & Stars glamping holiday in the English countryside + a £1000 cash prize.  And if that wasn’t enough Studio Canal have also teamed up with Visit England to create a free online guide offering all the ingredients you need to embark on your own family adventure this summer, inspired by Swallows and Amazons

Who are the ‘Swallows’ ? Who are the ‘Amazons’ ?

   An enchanting new take on the beloved novel by Arthur Ransome, Swallows & Amazons tells the story of the Walker children, whose summer holiday in the Lake District sees them sailing out on their own to a local island, only to find themselves in competition with a rival group of children who call themselves the Amazons and ultimately an adventure far bigger than they could have imagined.  As a desperate battle for ownership of the island ensues, the real dangers of an adult world on the brink of war encroach on their paradise in the form of a mysterious pair of Russian spies hot on the tail of the enigmatic Jim Turner. As the sleepy British summer is turned on its head, the children must learn skills of survival, responsibility, and the all-important value of friendship.

  Starring Rafe Spall (Life of Pi, I Give it a Year), Andrew Scott (Sherlock, Spectre) Kelly Macdonald (Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Brave) Jessica Hynes (Twenty Twelve, Shaun of the Dead) and Harry Enfield (Harry Enfield and Chums), Swallows And Amazons is an exciting and heart-warming adventure released this summer on August 19th.
