Descend below ground into the Brunel Museum's Tunnel Shaft for a film experience like no other, as Secret Adventures bring you Secret Adventure Cinema for an evening packed to the brim with adrenaline fuelled movies. Secret Adventures present Adventure Films Underground featuring a stellar line up of films
including The Swimming Granny & And Then We Swam.
Arrive from 6.30 for the campfire, wild cocktails and honey beer by The Cocktail Gardener and delicious food available on site. The films in the programme have won over twenty two film awards combined and will start in the tunnel under the garden at 7.30pm.
The Swimming Granny
An 85 year old granny swims every day in the sea tottering into the water with great waves all around her. She found it helped cure her postnatal depression when she was a young woman and has been swimming in the sea ever since. A short and powerful homage to the joys of wild swimming.
North of The Sun
Two Norwegians find an isolated beach in the Arctic circle where they surf for 9 months in the dark. They build a beautiful cabin out of driftwood and collect rubbish on the beach. The ultimate hut fantasy film.
And Then We Swam
Two friends decide to row across the Indian Ocean. Far from being extreme athletes, neither had actually ever rowed before in their lives. But four months earlier, determined to prove their doubters wrong, they got their secondhand boat to the start line on the west coast of Australia, and set off.
Please note: The tunnel can get cold so please bring some warm clothes with you.
