Random Fact Of The Week

Monty Python’s ‘The Life of Brian’ was banned in Aberystwyth for 30 years from the date of its release.

The film was finally shown officially at the Arts Centre in March 2009, after the ban was officially ended.

Along with the Mayor at the time, who played Judith Iscariot in the classic comedy, the premiere was also attended by much loved actors Michael Palin and Terry Jones.

A number of towns banned the movie for its supposed mocking of religious beleifs at the time, and in Aberystwyth this only sought to make it more popular as people flocked to showings elsewhere in order to see what all the fuss was about.
