Brighton's big screen
Europe's largest outdoor cinema is back on Brighton Beach for the sixth year running with a more exciting line up than ever before!
Over 32 days, starting on Friday 28 July, Brighton's Big Screen (BBS) will be showing more than 100 films ranging from new releases including La La Land and Moonlight, family favourites such as Moana and The Lion King, and cult classics like Pulp Fiction. BBS is also hosting a number of themed evenings including The Rocky Horror Show, Star Wars, Mamma Mia and Grease. Tickets for all film screenings start from just £4 for adults.
The official launch of BBS takes place on Saturday 29 July, with an amazing day of music on the beach, headlined by BBC 6 Radio DJ and world-renowned selector Gilles Peterson. Gilles will be accompanied by his MC, Earl Zinger, and a combination of Brighton-based legends, ensuring an unparalleled day and night of jazz, funk and soul-infused sounds.
We also have a number of brilliant live acts and DJs lined up throughout the day. Musicologist Russ Dewbery will be bringing you the finest in Jazzbop, while Freak Power (originally founded by bassist Norman Cook, AKA Fatboy Slim), have reformed especially for the event.
DJ collective Soul City Worldwide will also be spinning the best in funk, soul and disco, and The Juke of York, who recently supported Fatboy Slim at the O2, will be dropping soulful summer vibes.
BBC 3 radio presenter and Jazz vocalist Clare Martin (OBE), a seven times winner at the British Jazz awards, will be performing with her live band. Up-and-coming vocalist Tori Allen Martin, who recently featured on BBC live lounge, and the Starr Trust Singers will kick off the proceedings.
On the following day, Sunday 30 July, BBS will be hosting one of the semi-finals of the British Street Food awards. To get your mouth watering and your taste buds tingling, we'll be screening laugh-out-loud movies Ratatouille, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Willy Wonka and Chef.
On Saturday 26 August, (bank holiday weekend), BBS is screening iconic 70s classic Quadrophenia, including a Q&A with the stars of the film, including leading man Phil Daniels.
This will be followed by a performance and 60s themed video show by 'Who's Next', widely regarded to be the #1 Who tribute band, and a DJ set from Drew Stanstall (ex-member of ska legends, The Specials).
