A film dubbed the Geordie version of The Hangover is being screened in South Tyneside for the first time.

The Stagg Do, which was filmed in the North East, is being shown at the Customs House, in South Shields, on Thursday, June 23.

The film, which stars a cast of local actors including Craig Conway, from South Shields and Therese Neve, from Hebburn, is a rude, crude, low-brow comedy about a group of lads celebrating an impending wedding with the tradition of a wild night out.

The soundtrack features tracks from North East bands, including Marriott Lane, who will be playing live after the screening.

Well-known North East film producer Keith Ball, behind films such as Dog Soldiers, the Descent and Harry Brown, will also be at the screening to host a question and answer session with filmmakers.

The event kicks off at the Mill Dam venue at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10. To book, go to www.customshouse.co.uk or call the box office on 0191 454 1234.
