Paul Berriff OBE
Paul Berriff’s 50 Years Behind the Camera talk is an audio-visual presentation of Paul’s life and times with both his still and movie cameras. It features his photographic work with legendary pop groups such as the Rolling Stones and the Beatles and amazing stories and adventures while filming TV documentaries from James Bond to NASA astronauts. Paul has cheated death four times and tells the gripping stories of his amazing escapes including the dramatic story of that tragic day in New York when both the Twin Towers collapsed on top of him. Paul is the only British survivor to survive the collapse of both the Twin Towers on 9/11.
Following a £9.5 million redevelopment, Middleton Hall re-opened its doors in late 2016 as a 400-seater concert hall. The versatile venue is used for classical music concerts, and with adaptable acoustics, it is also used as a surround-sound cinema and theatre space.
