Heason Events is proud to screen ‘A Year in Yellow’ - the feature length film of the build up to Bradley Wiggins’ incredible golden summer winning the coveted Maillot Jaune in the Tour de France and then Olympic Time Trial Gold at London 2012.
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.
“Kids from Kilburn don’t win the Tour de France”, asserts Bradley Wiggins. It’s late 2011, and he and his team are getting ready to attempt the impossible: A British win in the world’s most famous cycling race. Filmmaker John Dower is along for the ride, and as the celebratory adulation grows with every Wiggins win, Dower probes the prickly enigmatic man behind the myth. Wiggins’ wife Cath feels she is married to two men: a marvellous husband and the cyclist who “is a bit of a twat”. Abandoned by his father as a toddler, Wiggins naturally took to the sport which was his father’s undoing. As he heads into the gruelling tour, where journalists outnumber cyclists by ten to one, Wiggins finds life in the spotlight difficult. He somehow maintains his focus to achieve the impossible dream: triumphing at both the Tour de France and the London Olympics in a spectacular summer for British sport.
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.
