Blind Dave Heeley film screening


On Wednesday the 12th June, 7 DAYS – The story of “Blind Dave” Heeley had a special charity screening at the West Bromwich Albion Football club.

Originally it was intended to show the film on the two huge screens on the pitch itself, but heavy rains meant the screening had to take place indoors instead – in the Hawthorns suite.

The rain didn’t stop play and it didn’t stop people from coming to watch, in fact, the 220 plus capacity room wasn’t big enough to seat everyone that came, with several having to stand at the back!

Once again, the film received a tremendous reception and Dave Heeley was there to take a Q and A session after the film.

Thanks to the Albion Foundation for another fantastic night!
