EVENT HIRE: Big Bicycle Cinema

Bring people together to share a unique experience and develop a stronger sense of community with pedal power. 

Our Big Bicycle Cinema uses the energy from 16 adults and children cycling to provide a cinematic performance for an audience of up to 1,000 people. You can have an outdoor cinema in parks, rooftops, playgrounds, anywhere! The idea is that the audience can bring their own bicycles to the event (we’ll bring some along too) and these will be used to generate the necessary power. Anyone can have a go. 

The Big Bicycle Cinema is designed to entertain and also educate. All the electricity for the performance is produced by the cyclists alone. There are no batteries. Having generated their own energy, we hope that people will be encouraged to think about their own energy consumption and hopefully make a small step towards reducing it by changing their behaviour.
