Atonement with Guest Panel
Fri 15 September @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm£6.00
In this epic, visually rich love story from the Ian McEwan novel, two impassioned characters are torn apart by jealousy and lies. Set during World War II, its beautifully shot locations include Cuckmere Haven and the Coastguard Cottages while the action switches from mannered upper middle-class life to harrowing battle scenes.
We will also have a guest panel featuring local Anglican priest Peter Owen Jones, recently seen on a Channel 4 documentary walking the South Downs Way, Carolyn Mccourt who has lived at one of the Coastguard Cottages for 30 years, and town clerk James Corrigan, will be discussing the area’s aesthetic and spiritual values, location filming, and the value of tourism and filming. Additionally, Carolyn will be drawing awareness to the precarious position of the cottages – witness huge chalk falls this summer alone – and the charity CuckmerehavenSOS. Before the show starts the audience will be entertained by the Pop Up Singers performing 1940’s songs.
