THE FILM

A film that Celebrates the birth of show business, and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. 


THE VENUE

Steeped in war history and cloaked in mystery and protected by its impressive ramparts, Newhaven Fort has been keeping its secrets safely hidden for almost 150 years.  The last of a long series of defences built on the cliffs overlooking Seaford Bay. Dating back to the Iron Age, the site has seen updated many times to what you see today, this well hidden fort tucked and built into the hill top, makes for an iconic venue to sit back and watch a selection of great films within.

Boats left from below its walls for the infamous D-Day Landings of the Second World War. Something truly quite special about this venue and one we recommend you book in early for.
