Local born director Shane Meadows is expected to attend along with some of the film's stars, Rhys Ifans, Shirley Henderson, Finn Atkins and writer Paul Fraser.

With a cast including Robert Carlyle, Kathy Burke and Ricky Tomlinson, hopes are high that Once Upon A Time In The Midlands will cross over into the mainstream and become just as big a hit as Meadows first major feature film TwentyFourSeven which starred Bob Hoskins.

Once Upon A Time... tells the story of Shirley and her two suitors - Dek and Jimmy.

Throw into the equation a daughter, estranged husbands, boyfriends and sisters and it's clear the path of true love is never going to run smoothly.

We'll bring you photos from the glitzy premiere after the big event and a review of the film in our movie section.
