COPIES of the long-awaited DVD edition of Shrovetide movie Wild in the Streets are due to arrive in the UK soon.
The makers of the 82-minute documentary, which examines the game, the town and its characters during 2006, have been shipped from America and are due to arrive with Shrovetider Dave Calladine any time.
The first 100 DVDs will go on sale at Nigel’s Butchers in Dig Street and half the profits will be pumped into the game’s funds.
More than 20 pre-orders have been taken for the DVD so far, with many more expected during the two days of the game this year, Shrove Tuesday, March 4 and Ash Wednesday, March 5.
The movie will no longer be shown at Cinebowl in Uttoxeter this year, due to ‘technical difficulties’ but it is still due to screen at QUAD in Derby on Sunday, March 2 at 4.25pm and on Monday, March 3 at 6,30pm.
