Every man has a song in his heart, so what do you do when someone else is singing yours?

A DROP OF THE PURE is about a Manchester lad who sets up a Folk Night above a pub, then must fight to save it from closing.

Running Time 72 mins 20 secs. B&W and Colour. Comedy/Drama/Documentary

Staring Christian Ryden, Louise Marie Kerr and Manchester music legend, “Guitar” George Borowski. Also featuring various Manchester acoustic musicians (who contributed to the soundtrack) and the participation of the locals of The White Swan, Ladybarn. Written & Directed by North West writer, Peter Vickers.

A DROP OF THE PURE is a comic drama set in present day Manchester, London and Barcelona. It’s about JIMMY, a 29 year old Manchester lad, who’s fed up with chasing pop success in London and so returns home to set up an acoustic night above a pub. He wants to get his soul back and get his girlfriend, EILISH, back . But then his old band mate, CALLUM, arrives - to steal his girl? To steal his songs? The locals, who usually fill the night, have abandoned him to watch footy on the screens down the road and there’s a bloke from the brewery coming in to decide the pub’s future. Jimmy may end up as “Anonymous” as the forgotten songwriters whose music fills his night.

A DROP OF THE PURE celebrates the heart and soul of a disappearing community – with gags and guitars.
