By special request, a one-off showing of the fabulous cricket documentary Fire in Babylon. The film tells the story of how the West Indies cricket team of the 1970s and '80s dominated the cricket world through its fiery fast bowling and brilliant batting. Accompanied by a superb soundtrack, the film shows how, under the captaincy of the charismatic Viv Richards, the Windies played the serene game of cricket purely on their terms.

The showing is sponsored by local cricket company Ayrtek, who have kindly offered some equipment as prizes. All film-goers will be entered into the draw for goodies. Ayrtek will also have some of their equipment on show, such as the innovative ACIS batting helmet as worn by Kumar Sangakkara.
