Cycle to the Cinema is the latest venture from Sheffield Adventure Film Festival and Buxton Adventure Festival organiser Matt Heason (Heason Events) in partnership with the National Trust's Longshaw Estate Moorland Discovery Centre near Hathersage and the University of Derby, who last year opened their Oaklands Manor Outdoors Leadership Centre at their Buxton campus.

Moorlands Discovery Centre, Longshaw EstateOrganiser Matt Heason of Heason Events said, "Cycle to the Cinema's proved a real hit this summer with sell-out screenings of films like 'Janapar' and 'Year in Yellow'.  It's been really great to see how many people have actually got on their bikes and cycled over to the Moorlands Discovery Centre.  We're already talking to the National Trust and hoping that we'll be able to run another series of film nights so watch this space!"

"We're very grateful to the National Trust's Longshaw Estate staff as well as our series sponsor the University of Derby, Buxton for their unstinting enthusiasm in promoting outdoor sports and activities and to their students for offering our audience free bike servicing.  Thanks also to Over Ride Cycleworks in Sheffield and Torq Fitness for providing prizes which have helped encourage so many people to actually cycle to the cinema and to Paul Barton at Design Everything for designing our bike gear-themed logo." 

“Cyclists might also be intereseted to know that I'm helping organise a new sportive - the Grindleford Goat ride on Saturday 14th September to help raise money to set up a community shop in our village church’s vestry.”  

Cycle to the Cinema, Longshaw EstateHelen Tuck, Visitor Experience Manager with the National Trust in the Peak District says, “We are really excited to be a part of this new & exciting venture in partnership with Heason Events, which celebrates and encourages cycling and brings people out to Longshaw, one of our most beautiful places in the Peak District and just 7 miles from Sheffield, and with the added bonus that for most people it will be down hill all the way home!”

Dr Peter Dewhurst the Strategic Director of the University of Derby's Buxton campus commented, "I am extremely pleased that the University was asked to become involved in this event as it reflects our mission to support local communities and to promote the health and wellbeing agenda through outdoor activities and sport."

"It also provides staff and students based at our Oaklands Manor Outdoor Leadership Centre with an opportunity to undertake hands-on practical work that is so vital in ensuring our degree programmes are up-to-date and relevant."

Perks & Prizes for Pedallers:  You don't have to come on your bike and we won't just be showing cycling films but as an incentive for anyone arriving on two wheels this month we'll have a special package including a Torq energy gel, entry into a prize draw to win a free in-store Platinum Bike Service at Sheffield's Over Ride Cycleworks.  University of Derby students will also be on hand to help with cycle repairs and basic bike maintenance.

How much? All Tickets £6 (entry), Per Item £2 (tea/ coffee and cake - please order in advance)

Q. Is Cycle To The Cinema suitable for children?
A. We don’t know which films we will be screening beyond the next event or two, but our aim is to show films that will appeal to older kids. There may be some strong language from time to time, but it will generally be in the context of somebody doing something difficult or scary. From time to time, during the school holidays, we will be putting on sessions aimed specifically at younger kids.
Q. Will refreshments be available?
A. Yes – when ordering your ticket online you will have the option of ordering tea / coffee and cake for £2.
Q. Where is the Discovery Centre?
A. It’s a stone’s throw from the junction of the Hathersage and Grindleford roads, just a few hundred metres from the Fox House Pub. You can use this map.
Q. Will there be tickets available on the door?
A. That depends on how many we have sold out in advance. We recommend buying your tickets in advance. We’ll endeavour to keep the Facebook Event page updated and let you know if the event has sold out in advance.
Q. Will I be allowed in if I have not cycled to the event?
A. Yes you will. We won’t be checking to make sure that people have cycled to the event. We hope that you do.
Q. Is there a secure place to lock my bike?
A. The short answer is no. However there is a large area immediately adjacent to the cinema room where you can store your bike away from prying eyes. We recommend that you bring your own lock and either lock your bike to itself, or better still, to one or two other bikes.
Q. Is it actually a cinema?
A. Not in the strictest sense of the word. It’s a lovely wood panelled room, with comfortable plastic seats, a decent in-house sound system, a projector and a screen.
Q. Are there showers?
A. No, but there are toilets!
Q. Will there be alcohol for sale?
A. Unfortunately not. We’ve decided that encouraging you to drink, and then to send you off careering down hill in the dark on a bike, would not be entirely responsible. If you are dead set on a crafty pint the Fox House is only a few hundred metres away.
