Event Information

Camden Town, the arse-end of the sixties. Two struggling, unemployed actors decide some respite is in order and so depart their miserable flat for a week in the Lake District – one that will involve rain, booze, minimal supplies, a randy bull and an even randier Uncle Monty.

Based on the real-life experiences of former actor turned writer/director Bruce Robinson, Withnail & I has become one of British cinema’s most fondly remembered comedies. Perfectly cast – with career-defining roles for Richard E. Grant, Paul McGann, Richard Griffiths and Ralph Brown – Withnail & I is a sheer delight, even on the umpteenth viewing. 

So pour yourself a glass of one of the finest wines known to humanity (coincidentally available for purchase at our bar) and come and join us in our outdoor arena for a night of endlessly quotable genius. Chin chin!

This thoroughly hedonistic screening will be introduced by Withnail Brum scrubbers Matt Bowsher and Hugh Evans.
