Dukes on the Downs - Now Cancelled


UPDATE: I had an email at 7am this morning from Joe Pidgeon from Beachdown Festival telling me what now everyone in Brighton knows: Beachdown has been cancelled. It's a real pity. Brighton is the perfect city to host a great festival, and after seeing the site yesterday I completely understand why the promoters wanted to host it there. A combination of the poor economic climate and some admittedly poor organisation led to its demise. Lets see what happens next year.

Earlier today I went up to the site of the Beachdown Festival on Devil's Dyke, where The Dukes will have a cinema inside a tent this year. It's a beautiful space, with views of the sea and the downs at each end. Our tent is huge, and slightly awkward, but we are keen to make it as cosy, welcoming and comfy as the Dukes itself is.

We're screening Kids' Films and grownup movies throughout the weekend. Here's the list:

WITHNAIL & I
TRAINSPOTTING
THE USUAL SUSPECTS
BLUE VELVET
FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF
RAGING BULL
CITY OF GOD
THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY
GENEVIVE
MIDNIGHT COWBOY

and for the little ones:

BUGSY MALONE (SINGALONG)
WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND
CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG
TARKA THE OTTER
