Chris’s recent award-winning short film, The Beatles and Us, is on the schedule, alongside A Hard Day’s Night, Looking For Lennon (in which I pop up), and a preview of Simon Weitzman’s long-awaited Here, There & Everywhere. It's all happening on Saturday 17th July from 3pm to 11pm and I have been asked along to share some memories of Liverpool Art College and the early Beatles. Hope to see some of you there!
The inaugural festival (with live music from The Dung Beatles) takes place on Loxwood Meadow, near Billingshurst in West Sussex and kicks off the Loxwood Drive In Movie season, produced by musician, manager and landowner Maurice Bacon (who looks after Kula Shaker and The Mediaeval Baebes).
This year, only 120 cars are permitted to park on the meadow (with space for picnic blankets, folding chairs and so forth), so I am sure it will sell out very quickly. The ticket price is £60 for a car with 4 people (if you're 5 passengers I think you can pay a bit extra). You can also camp onsite if you wish.
For tickets & further info you can check out the website or contact 007866 468632.
