Scunthorpe schoolboy Fraser Kelly stars with Anna Friel & Richard Armitage in major new movie Urban and the Shed Crew

By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: October 24, 2015


Fraser Kelly, who attends Frederick Gough school, acts alongside The Hobbit's Richard Armitage and television and film actress Anna Friel in Urban and the Shed Crew.

The 13-year-old has taken the role of Urban – a runaway boy who takes drugs, cannot read or write and does not go to school.

The film follows Urban's story after he meets a disillusioned ex-social worker called Chop who is shocked by the circumstances of his life.

But even Chop with his own penchant for drink, drugs and hard living is shocked by the state of Urban's life. After much soul searching, he resolves to clean up his own act and do his utmost to save the kid.

Fraser, from Bottesford, said that he really enjoyed working alongside the famous actors and was interested to see the way they got into their roles.

"It was amazing being on set with Anna because you could tell that she really knew what she was doing.

"And Richard would walk around mumbling his lines and would walk around in character," he said.

The young actor said he has been getting used to the different styles of preparation for stage and film production.

"Filming had been a whole different preparation. We get two days of preparation for the film and a month for the stage show.

"I prefer filming – when you go on stage there is no going back – with filming there is less pressure," he said.

The film is being premiered at the International Leeds Film Festival on November 7.

And Fraser's mum, Amanda Kelly, said that Urban was a complex character for Fraser to get to grips with.

"The subject was difficult to tackle and it was quite upsetting to watch it being filmed," she said.

She added that Richard Armitage had made some very complimentary comments about Fraser and his acting ability.

"When Richard was asked what he was doing on the red carpet, he talked about filming Urban and the Shed Crew and said that Fraser was the most incredible young actor. It was very high praise," she said.

Fraser is also on a break from performing in a Full Monty production that toured the whole country.

He plays one of the leading roles – Nathan – in the show, with EastEnders and Hollyoaks star Gary Lucy playing his dad, Gaz.

Bernard Hare’s Urban and The Shed Crew Comes to the Screen and LIFF

Posted on 28 October 2015. Tags: Bernard Hare, Richard Armitage, Urban and the Shed Crew


With the film adaptation of Bernard Hare’s staggering memoir, Urban and The Shed Crew, about to show at the 29th Leeds International Film Festival, Hare and one of the film’s stars, Richard Armitage have set up Just Giving pages to help raise funds for worthy causes associated with the film’s subject matter.

A hard living, disillusioned, ex social worker becomes the unlikely saviour to an anarchic gang of joy-riding, drug taking, thieving, out of control, care home runaways.

Eleven-year old Urban Grimshaw is Britains’ most runaway child, he’s even been on TV’s Crimewatch. His mother is a junkie and his father might as well be dead. He can’t read or write, and he doesn’t go to school. His average day is spent sitting round a bonfire with his mates smoking drugs and stealing cars. When he meets his mother’s new friend Chop’, a 37 year old, disillusioned, ex-social worker also living on society’s margins, on one of Leeds’ roughest estates, the two become firm friends.

But even ‘Chop’ with his own penchant for drink, drugs and hard living is shocked by the state of Urban’s life. After much soul searching, he resolves to clean up his own act and do his utmost to save the kid. But as their friendship deepens, Urban introduces him to the Shed Crew – the anarchic gang of kids between the ages of ten and fourteen; joy-riding, thieving runaways, no strangers to drugs or sex and it’s only then that we see exactly how long the road to civilization really is.

When ex-social worker Bernard Hare turned his startling experiences with a group of young delinquents into a novel it was described as one of the year’s most compelling and best selling books. ‘Urban and the Shed Crew’ is a stunning piece of ethnography described by ‘The Guardian’ as “moving but never sanctimonious, another City of God, this time for Britain rather than Brazil.”

Tales from the mean streets of Leeds

Urban and The Shed Crew filmed in Leeds

12:53Friday 30 October 2015

A film about a boy from Leeds growing up on the wrong side of the tracks has finally made it to the big screen. Lindsay Pantry reports

When former social worker Bernard Hare, who was born and brought up in Leeds, wrote his deeply personal memoir detailing his startling experiences with a gang in the 1990s, it became one of the year’s most compelling and best-selling books.


Now it has been vividly brought to the screen, filmed on the very streets that inspired it, starring The Hobbit actor Richard Armitage, Neil Morrisey and Anna Friel, and a group of mainly unknown young actors.

But while the real events that inspired the book took place more than 20 years ago, the film’s director and producer, the award-winning Candida Brady and Hare say its core themes are just as relevant today in a post-recession, Big Society, cut-back Britain.

Hare, now 57, was living on one of East Leed’s roughest estates and had abandoned a promising career as a social worker when he first came into contact with Urban, the then 12-year-old son of a woman he had an on-off relationship with.

Even with his experiences of hard-living, he was shocked by the life Urban - real name Lee Kirton - was living. Not registered at school and with a dangerous solvent habit, his average day was spent sitting around a bonfire with his mates smoking drugs and stealing cars. Eventually, it was the friendship and support offered by Hare to Urban and his friends, know as the Shed Crew, that pulled them through, and 20 years on many now have successful jobs and families.

Urban and The Shed Crew

Hare’s book chronicling their friendship, which ultimately led to the writer adopting Kirton, Urban and the Shed Crew, was described by The Observer as ‘another City of God, this time for Britain rather than Brazil’ and sold 50,000 copies.

Brady had initially tried to secure the film rights to the book soon after its release, but contracts had already been signed. That film however, was never made, and it was only a chance remembering of the book in September 2012 that led her to contacting Hare, and ultimately bringing the film to life.


She was promoting Trashed, her award-winning documentary on the effects of the global waste problem starring Jeremy Irons, in New York at the time when she approached Hare.

“I’d never forgotten the warmth and observation in Bernie’s writing, and it suddenly came back to me,” she said. “It was amazing to me that nobody had already done it.

“It was such an extraordinary and horrifying story, but with a sense of humour while dealing with such horrible circumstances.”

She met up with Hare, and members of the Shed Crew, and they began working on a script. It brought in elements that took place after the timeline of the book, and filming started in March 2014.


Brady, who gave the film the tagline, ‘it only takes one person to care’, said the film’s core themes of deprivation, struggle and despair are still relevant.

“Sadly we now watching a repeat of the exact same thing happening today. You only have to look at what is happening with Tax Credits. Poverty is a syndrome. The statistics on the numbers of people using foodbanks is shocking, and yet we throw away 50 per cent of our what food we make which children are starving.

“I have teacher friends who are bringing in food for their pupils. We are not a third world country, this shouldn’t be happening.

“Childhood should be sacred. Urban’s story was one of the most shocking. No child should go through that, particularly one born in England.”

For Hare, the outlet of the suffering experienced by young people today may be different to how it was expressed by Kirton in the 1990s, but the root cause is the same.


“Back then, the kids were stealing cars all over the place,” he said. “There’s not quite the disorder there was then but there is still the suffering and the poverty behind the scenes. I think the story is still very relevant.”

Writing the screenplay with the benefits of 2015 technology was a different task to writing the book for Hare, who then, “would write into the middle of the night on a typewriter, only stopping when the old lady in the flat below would start hitting the ceiling with her broom.”

Kirton, 32 and living in Leeds, and other members of ‘the crew’ were heavily involved in production, helping scout locations, advising on filming, and some making use of their professional skills now. The film was shot entirely in Leeds, in some of the very spots the Shed Crew spent their days - and nights, sleeping rough.

Hare said: “One of the lads now has a security firm, so he was given the security contract in the film, another, Sparky in the book, he does aerials and Sky dishes, so every morning before filming started on a street, he’d take down the Sky dishes, and every night he’d put them back up.

“All the kids in the book now are grown up now, most with their own kids. There’s still some issues, but we’ve stayed together as a family. They look to me as their dad.”

Hare is still writing and regularly appears on BBC Radio 4.

“I’m starting writing Urban 2, but I’m much more aware now of how these things affect people’s lives now, so it’s a challenge. They all feel part of it” he said. “There are no shocks for them with the film.”

The film’s young stars, many working professionally for the first time, had a harrowing subject to take on, but Brady said they responded brilliantly, particularly Fraser Kelly, the Scunthorpe-born actor who plays Urban.

Brady said: “He was extraordinary. I knew the moment I heard him read he was right. It was an incredibly challenging part, and Fraser is a very sensitive chap. Not many kids would be able to take on such a huge undertaking.”

The film is being supported by the charity Action for Children, which has been working across Yorkshire for over two decades to support young people.

Chief executive Sir Tony Hawkhead said:“Although the film is set over twenty years ago, its core theme of neglect and the desperate need for early action to avoid families spiralling into crisis is just as important today. We see examples of chaotic lives like these on a daily basis. The good news is that because of our frontline work, we also see the truth in the film’s central message of hope.”

Richard Armitage, who plays Chop, the character based on Hare, was so moved by the experience of filming that he began a fundraising page for the charity, which has so far raised more than £3,000.

Armitage, whose father grew up in Leeds, said he hoped the film raised awareness of the charity’s work.

He said: “Filming Urban and the Shed Crew was a special time for me as I saw more of Leeds than ever before; it opened my eyes to the continuing struggle of families such as Urban’s who fight for a decent life on a daily basis.”
