The Mancunian, who has lived in the East End for many years, has chosen to curate a film festival there this summer.

There will be indoor and outdoor screenings, including Boyle works Slumdog Millionaire (pictured), Trainspotting and Shallow Grave, plus Q&As with the man himself, alongside exhibitions, DJs and some of Boyle’s own favourite movies.
