Event Information

Something Left Behind is the definitive story of a record that has been labelled the ‘greatest break-up album of all time’, exploring music, obsession, love, loss and fading youth over the 30 year lifespan of The Wedding Present’s much-heralded debut LP, 'George Best'.

Featuring interviews with all four original band members, key players in the record’s history plus the major influence behind its very existence, the film also follows the album’s story through the eyes of the fans who have carried it with them for a lifetime. The story concludes with the band’s homecoming show in Leeds, the city witnessing a blistering and emotional final-ever performance of the album and the closing of a hugely significant and personal chapter for David Gedge and The Wedding Present.

The screening will be followed by a live onstage Q&A with director Andrew Jezard.
