Danish Psychological Thriller The Exception set for UK Theatrical & Digital release
18th December, London, UK: Parkland Entertainment are delighted to announce the release of the tense Danish psychological thriller, The Exception, in cinemas January 22nd and digital download from January 25th 2021.

Based on the best seller by Christian Jungersen, The Exception stars Raised By Wolves actor Amanda Collin, Sidse Babett Knudsen (Borgen & Westworld), Lene Maria Christensen (Terribly Happy & The Legacy) and Danica Curcic (The Mist & Silent Heart). The book sold more than 200,000 copies before being adapted into a film by Christian Torpe.

Iben, Malene, Anne-Lise and Camilla are four women working together in a daily routine marked by power struggles, whispers and alliances. When Iben and Malene each receive death threats, they start to suspect a Serbian war criminal, whom they have been writing articles about. However, when a case of bullying in the office escalates, they slowly begin to wonder if the evil comes from themselves.
Commenting on the release, Director Jesper W. Nielsen said "I am very excited about working with such strong and talented actresses in a story about human beings and the darkest corners of their minds. Together, we will enter a fascinating universe of women consisting of extremely interesting and complex characters that not only lie to each other, but also to themselves. An unfortunate mixture that allows evil to reign."
The Exception will be in UK Cinemas from 22nd January and then on all major UK Digital Platforms including iTunes, Sky Store, Google Play, Amazon, Virgin, Curzon Home Cinema & Chili from 25th January

Strawberry Hill House & Garden - Season's Greetings From Strawberry Hill House🎄


Season's Greetings from Strawberry Hill House

"The prettiest bauble you ever saw"

Dear Supporter,

It has been a very tough year for so many and Strawberry Hill House & Garden, like many heritage houses, has certainly had unexpected "storms to weather"

With the support and passion shown from so many of you, we have survived 2020 and we are looking forward to updating you with our plans for 2021 early in the New Year.

We have a programme planned that will recapture the creative spirit of Horace Walpole’s House and explore some of the many stories in Strawberry Hill’s remarkable history.

Horace Walpole wrote "my buildings, like my writings are of paper, and will blow away ten years after I am dead". Clearly that has not been the case, but as custodians of the House’s extraordinary legacy, we hope that you will be “blown away” when you visit in 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you when we are able to reopen and in the meantime, we wish you and your families a safe and happy Festive Holiday.

As ever, thank you for your ongoing support.

The Strawberry Hill House Team
