The Long Weekend


The Long Weekend, commissioned by the NAPF, is a film that helps people understand how important it is to save for when they retire – and how their employer’s pension scheme can help them do that.  It’s written and presented by Vincent Franklin from BBC’s The Thick Of It and The Office.

It’s now available for employers to use in presentations, to show to groups of employees and to upload onto their intranet. See film

There are two versions of the film:

  • a generic version that can be used by any employer or pension scheme
  • a tailored version that can include information about specific schemes

Support Material

To help employers make the most of the film, we’ve produced a booklet and posters. These encourage people to watch the film and help to make sure the messages stick.  See support material

The Long Weekend was commissioned by The National Association of Pension Funds, the leading voice of workplace pensions in the UK. We speak for 1,200 pension schemes with some 15 million members and assets of around £800 billion.  The purpose of this film is to increase people’s financial literacy and interest in saving for their future.

The Long Weekend was produced by Quietroom, a communications agency, which specialises in financial services and Government.
