A Lancaster teenager is holding her first film premiere at the West End Playhouse in Morecambe.

Matilda Walden, 15, is going to showcase a film that has been produced to accompany her song ‘Doris’ which she wrote with her mother Jayne.

The song lyrics talk about a trapped bird that only Doris can set free. It is an analogy for controlling relationships.

The song which is on Spotify has had some great reviews from Matilda's loyal followers; she has over 2,900 followers on Facebook and 6,000 subscribers on Youtube, her most watched video having had nearly 600,000 views.

Doris also features on her CD ‘Always the Outcast’ which will be stocked soon in HMV stores.

Matilda has always made her own music videos which have received thousands of views, but they have mainly featured just her singing.

So with the help of her mother, she came up with a very unique idea for a music video.

They then called on the help of the West End Players, an amateur performance group based in the West End Playhouse run by Matt Panesh.
