The Man Who Fell To Earth will be shown on Saturday 24th September from 6.30pm as part of the Abandon Normal Devices (AND) festival.

Following the film will be an afterparty featuring James Lavelle, DJ Cottam and Beats of Rage.

The gates open on Cheapside for cars and pedestrians from 6.30pm and the film will begin at 8pm. Before this live broadcasting and entertainment will be provided by local arts group They Eat Culture.

The film is an 18 certificate so there will be ID checks on entry. It’s £15 per car, and a maximum of four people are allowed per vehicle. Pedestrians will be charged £5.


Tickets are available in advance via Eventbrite and you can find out more information about the AND festival on their website.
