You can’t beat a good ol’ British comedy for some rude and offensively crude hilarity. Welcome to ‘Destination: Dewsbury’ this year’s ‘Inbetweeners’, but just a tiny bit more insane.
It was made on a small budget, with an average crew age of 21, with irreverent, shockwave comedy that aims to fill the void in the UK comedy mainstream. With a touch of staple English sitcoms, iconic film comedies and a wild imagination, the film is a blend of exciting talent and tone. Director and co-writer Jack Spring sees the film as a “middle-aged version of The Inbetweeners. It’s got real heart and strikes a comedic and emotional chord with a huge spectrum of people; it’s a proper laugh-out-loud comedy that touches the heart”.
The film will have two premieres to mark its theatrical road trip – the first on Saturday 23rd February in its hometown of Dewsbury (Showcase Cinema Batley), and its UK capital touchdown on the 24th February in London (Prince Charles Cinema). Attending the events will be the film’s main cast, director Jack Spring, and special guests.

The film will be released in Showcase cinemas March 1.
