Beverley Mum, Louise Barrett, is excited to bring James Bond to Hull in memory of her son, Ellis, who died almost 10 years ago.

What a great way to celebrate his short life whilst raising vital funds for the Foundation for Study into Infant Death.

Due for general release on Friday 26th October, Skyfall is set to send your pulse racing. FSID are thrilled to be to presenting a premiere and exclusive red carpet event, be amongst the first to see Bond at his best whilst supporting a wonderful cause. The event is not about an evening with loads of celebs, at this event, you are the celeb! Dress up as your favourite Bond character to be in with a chance to win an exclusive prize!

On being offered the opportunity to be involved with the Charity Screening of James Bond’s Skyfall Louise said ‘I am thrilled to be able to bring Bond to Hull, this is a great way to celebrate Ellis’s short life by bringing together family, friends and new friends, giving them the opportunity to see the new Bond film before anybody else. I am looking forward to seeing Bond at his best before the rest of the country!’ Gary Cotton of Cineworld Hull added, ‘we are excited to be involved in showing Bond here in Hull, it is a fantastic opportunity for local people to get dressed up and attend an exclusive event and all for a very worthwhile charity.’


Daniel Craig is back as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall,Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.


Any funds raised as a result of this event would go directly to FSID’s charitable activities. In England and Wales about 600 babies die unexpectedly annually; of these tragic deaths about 300 remain unexplained. As part of FSID’s three year strategy we have set a target of bringing the number of unexplained cot deaths down to below 200 by 2015 and to halve it to 150 by 2020.

Our ambition is to ensure that new parents understand and act on our life-saving messages but we also need to do more to ensure those messages are understood by everyone in our community. By focusing our message on high risk groups, we aim to reduce the rate of cot death significantly and spare parents the ultimate heartbreak – the death of their baby.
