Events + Festivals

From cosy film screenings to full-scale festivals, we believe that nothing beats a good get-together. Our annual programme is full of fun, FREE events for everyone: we run Pop-Up screenings in unexpected places, film premieres in world-class cinemas, music nights and cabarets, drama and theatre performances, parades, street parties, exhibitions, crafts sales, festivals and family fun days – inspiring celebrations of our wonderful community!

Check out What’s On to find out what’s coming up or have a look at some of our past events (maybe you were there!).
