Julian Barratt to tour

...with his new film Mindhorn

Mighty Boosh star Julian Barratt is to tour the UK with his new film Mindhorn.

He wrote the script with Horrible Histories actor Simon Farnaby, a long-time collaborator, and the pair will be visiting at least 15 cinemas in April and May to present the comedy moive. Each screening will be followed by a Q&A with the pair.

In the film, directed by Sean Foley, Farnaby plays washed-up actor Richard Thorncroft, best known as 1980s TV detective Mindhorn, whose robotic eye could literally see the truth.

But when a present-day criminal runs amok on the Isle of Man, he will only deal with the fictional detective – propelling Thorncroft back into the limelight.

Farnaby also stars alongside Essie Davis, Russell Tovey, Andrea Riseborough, Jessica Barden, Harriet Walter and Steve Coogan.

The tour dates announced for the film with the Q&A are:

  April 22: Bristol - Watershed
