Family get-togethers! Are they a time of love and warmth? Or are they more trouble than they are worth?

In this delightful comedy, we meet the Broadbents and the Fullers as they gather together to celebrate two classic family occasions, a wedding and a funeral.

From the writers of Billy Liar, Celebration is an affectionate look at family life. Warts and all!

The perfect antidote to the winter blues!
