Tickets: £5 / £4

"England in the future: a nightmarish journey through a dark landscape of totalitarianism and despair."  Part documentary, part home movie, Jarman's film diary is a mournful depiction of what he felt was the loss of traditional English culture in Thatcher's Britain and he rails at the sick and merciless society that emerges. Stars Tilda Swinton.

Performances exploring these themes from artists Bird La Bird, Rachael Clerk, Liz Clarke and Catherine Hoffmann.

Beacons, Icons & Dykons is an ode to gay and queer cinema. A film is screened alongside performances, talks and a diverse range of entertainment inspired by the theme and heroes. From Dolly Parton to Diana Ross, John Waters and Kenneth Anger, we’re honouring them all, one by one.
