Dennis Skinner
Dir. Daniel Draper

A feature-length documentary about socialist and Labour politician Dennis Skinner. Raised alongside nine siblings within a mining village, Dennis has fought for the rights of the working class for over 50-years. Uncompromising in his views and with a set of incorruptible principles, Dennis is respected and feared on both sides of the House of Commons. Nature of The Beast looks at what lies behind his passion and drive, and tracks his rise from a local councillor to today where he is one of Britain's most recognisable politicians - known as ‘The Beast of Bolsover’.

The film will be introduced by Richard Burgon MP.

Following the screening, we’ll be joined on stage by the film’s director, Daniel Draper, producer Christie Allanson and Gareth Lewis, who is the Policy & Campaigns Officer for the Trades Union Congress (TUC) in Yorkshire & the Humber, for a discussion and Q&A.


The TUC supports unions to grow and thrive, they stand up for everyone who works for a living to make sure every job is a decent job and everyone at work is treated with respect.
