When half-brothers Omar and Pete lose the grandmother they grew up with, they decide to set off for Blackpool together in search of Omar’s estranged father

This below-par comedy is the feature length adaptation of the director’s 2013 short film Going to Mecca. As it is set in Blackpool, it is perhaps no surprise that there are glimpses of the town’s new Flexity 2 trams, but all are distant views. It does, however, feature a brief shot of a Northern Rail Class 150/2 ‘Sprinter’ DMU pulling away from Blackpool Pleasure Beach station, which also appeared in Going to Mecca (qv).

A Class 150/2 ‘Sprinter’ DMU pulls away from a tidy looking Blackpool Pleasure Beach station, the penultimate stop on the Blackpool South branch. The unit is one of a number in the Northern Rail fleet that had additional advertising vinyls added to its base livery, in this case ”Welcome to Yorkshire”.
A Flexity 2 tram is just about visible between Antonio Aakeel and Peter Slater in this view from Blackpool’s North Pier
At least one Flexity 2 is visible in this lovely night time view of Blackpool Promenade
