To kick off our 2012 season, we have two special events coming up at the Eastbourne Redoubt

Saturday 21st April, 8pm

A Very Long Engagement‘ (Un Long Dimanche de Fiancialles) [Cert 15] (2004)

 Lotte Reiniger Fairy Tales [Cert U]
Filmspot will be screening three  silhouette-animated fairy tales by pioneering film-maker, Lotte Reiniger as part of Redoubt’s ‘Museum at Night’ event – plus there will be the chance to try your hand at shadow puppetry.  Details will follow shortly.

The Eastbourne Redoubt formed part of a chain of fortifications built to deter Napoleon’s forces in the early 1800s. Garrisoned by troops until the early 1900s, and again during WWII, it is now an atmospheric museum housing three military collections.

We hope to see you all there!
