Fairytale of London Town

A bittersweet modern-day fairytale.

Comedy-drama about three Deaf women who face three very different Christmases before an unexpected event throws them together. There doesn’t seem to be much to look forward to at Yuletide for put-upon Veronica, hotel cleaner Karen and unhappily married Sally, but when Veronica finds herself in her hour of need, will the other women rally around her? Watch this modern fairytale to find out. Starring Caroline Parker, Patsy Palmer and Sarah Beauvoisin, Fairytale of London Town is the second collaboration between director Louis Neethling and writer Rebecca Atkinson.

  • I have read all your series of filming as I felt it would bring more impact to the hearing to be aware of what deaf means to themselves. I'm deaf and qualified BSL level 6 and coming up level 5 diploma teaching sector hopefully this month. It's very interesting to watch their character,bring the problems then solved it at the end which I love to watch. I shake my both hands in the air (applause). I have 4 ( soon 5) years old daughter who is hearing and great signing to us and spoken BSL to deaf people.

    I wish that your programmes will be continue ! I appreciate your hard work and loves to hear more details and the acting stage too.

    Well done!
