A big thank you to all of you who came out to the Western Lawns in Eastbourne to support the Magnificent Motors drive-in on Bank Holiday Saturday last week. We helped facilitate the screening of The Italian Job, which was run by the Eastbourne Borough Council Events Team. It was great to see you all – including some of the classic cars that came and really added to the atmosphere. We have another great event coming up this week, do see the end of this post for details!
Here are a few photographs from the evening:
Don’t forget we have our FREE screening of The Dam Busters at Newhaven Fort this week – it’s on Thursday, as part of Museums at Night. Doors open at 6.30pm, with the programme starting at 7.30pm, and we are expecting a crowd, so do make sure you book your ticket in advance. To book, contact Newhaven Fort on 01273 517622.
A classic British war film, The Dam Busters stars MIchael Redgrave as Barnes Willis, the inventor of the bouncing bomb. The first section of the film focuses on the background of Willis’s work on the bomb, and solving the problem of how to attack the Ruhr Valley dams from the air. The second section of the film focuses on the ‘Dam Busters’ raid itself, with some riveting flight sequences featuring specially modified Lancaster Bombers. Here’s a great clip from the film with an unusual bit of problem solving:
We hope to see you all at Newhaven Fort!
