From Soup to Nuts is a documentary which explores the passion, humour and camaraderie of those that work at The Goods Shed, a unique mix of food hall, restaurant and market in Canterbury.

An exclusive preview screening of the film was held at The Gulbenkian Cinema in Canterbury on Saturday 28th January 2012.  Around 70 people attended the screening, including various TV and film industry professionals and some of those who feature in the film.

The 35 minute film was produced and directed by BAFTA nominated director, Tim Leandro, who makes his home in the Cathedral City. It was made with virtually no budget, but by calling in favours from an impressive line-up of industry professionals.

Conceived first on a visit to The Goods Shed, while eating a pork pie and taking in the “the theatre” around him, it was shot over two days in November on a Canon 5D camera. “The camera works brilliantly”, says Tim, because “it is less invasive and therefore not intimidating to those in front of the camera.”

Edited by veteran Nigel Cattle, the film also has a beautiful soundtrack, composed byAl Lethbridge (Around The World in 80 Days).

From butchers to bakers, and fishmongers to grocers, The Goods Shed is a one stop shop for beautifully made, freshly presented and locally sourced food. The documentary celebrates the eccentric traders that have made food their passion and The Goods Shed their home and is a must see for all foodies!

The Goods Shed was set up by Suzanne Sait in 2002, and was the first full time farmers market in Kent. Suzanne wanted to support local makers of fresh food and give them an outlet to sell their goods. The market is next door to Canterbury West train station, and easily accessible.

Suzanne’s father thanked Tim at the Question and Answer session of the screening, and commented that the film was very true to the characters of The Goods Shed, which got a hearty round of approving applause by the participants.
